UAMS ADMINISTRATIVE GUIDE
|SUBJECT:||PROFESSIONAL PREFERENCE PROCUREMENT|
The purpose of this policy is to inform all departments within the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) of the requirements to be followed in the use of Professional Preference Procurements. Certain professionally preferred medical items used by physicians within UAMS are among the commodities which are exempt from Arkansas State Purchasing Law and qualify for Professional Preference Procurement. Request for approval of Professional Preference must be submitted in writing, signed by the physician, and approved by the UAMS Director of Procurement Services.
