In order to streamline the process of requesting a waiver for competition and increase internal controls with our auditing processes, the Department of Purchasing Services has revised 1232.1.1f – Customer Request for a Brand/Specific Waiver of Competition to allow for space in the form to include the statement of justification. This will eliminate the need to submit a separate justification memo on department letterhead.  In addition, Policy 1232 – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Policy on Sole Source or Brand-Specific Purchases has been revised to reflect the entire 18 reasons that a Waiver of Competition can be applied for (which have been listed on the form previously but were missing in the policy) to provide consistent information for this process.

Please see the New Waiver of Competition Form page for details on how to appropriately fill in the new form. If you have questions, please contact
