The State Procurement Office (SPO) serves as the central procurement authority for the State of Arizona. In doing so, SPO focuses on providing procurement leadership, procurement delegation, policy development, technical assistance, and maximizing strategic sourcing opportunities.
The SPO conducts strategic sourcing for statewide non-programmatic specific contracts including: office supplies and equipment, temporary services, information technology equipment, software and telecommunication equipment and services. SPO also conducts specialized procurements for a large number of small agencies with limited procurement authority.
Additionally, SPO provides and supports a central e-procurement system (ProcureAZ) for state agencies and cooperative members (ie., counties, cities, schools) to use in conducting their procurements. ProcureAZ assists SPO in providing the required compliance and oversight of procurement in the State of Arizona.
