F.S. 287.056
287.056 Purchases from purchasing agreements and state term contracts; vendor disqualification.
(1) Agencies shall, and eligible users may, purchase commodities and contractual services from purchasing agreements established and state term contracts procured, pursuant to s. 287.057, by the department. Each agency agreement made under this subsection shall include:
(a) A provision specifying a scope of work that clearly establishes all tasks that the contractor is required to perform.
(b) A provision dividing the contract into quantifiable, measurable, and verifiable units of deliverables that must be received and accepted in writing by the contract manager before payment. Each deliverable must be directly related to the scope of work and specify the required minimum level of service to be performed and the criteria for evaluating the successful completion of each deliverable.
(2) Agencies and eligible users may use a request for quote to obtain written pricing or services information from a state term contract vendor for commodities or contractual services available on state term contract from that vendor. The purpose of a request for quote is to determine whether a price, term, or condition more favorable to the agency or eligible user than that provided in the state term contract is available. If an agency issues a request for quote for contractual services for any contract with 25 approved vendors or fewer, the agency must issue a request for quote to all vendors approved to provide such contractual services. For any contract with more than 25 approved vendors, the agency must issue a request for quote to at least 25 of the vendors approved to provide such contractual services. Use of a request for quote does not constitute a decision or intended decision that is subject to protest under s. 120.57(3).
(3) The department must enter into and maintain one or more state term contracts with benefits consulting companies.
(4) A firm or individual placed on the suspended vendor list pursuant to s. 287.1351 or placed on a disqualified vendor list pursuant to s. 287.133 or s. 287.134 is immediately disqualified from state term contract eligibility.
