Yes, you are required to purchase from this Preferred Vendor contract. B&H Photo has been designated as the "Preferred Vendor" for AU for cameras and audio/visual related products as the result of a competitive bid process. In general, making purchases outside the contract shouldn't be necessary. We understand from time to time there may be a justifiable reason to purchase off contract through a different vendor. However, when the need arises, you are potentially violating the bid law, as all of our contracts have been competitively bid and awarded. In that situation, please attach a note of explanation to the voucher/purchasing card recon.
