Prices for this Common Use Arrangement (CUA) are based on discounts of RRP.

Purchases should be made in accordance with the Buying Rules. 

While buyers can pick and buy the specified products (up to the value of $250,000) from the contractors without calling quotes or tenders, you may wish to compare prices for the product you require from two or more suppliers by contacting them directly.
