Contract Vehicle Pricing:

In the past vehicle contracts were awarded annually based on the manufacturers' build cycle. This contract uses a multi-year award process. The initial term will be two years with the option to extend for an additional one-year term. New Model Year vehicles will be incorporated into the contract to allow for a smooth transition and uninterrupted vehicle availability; eliminating the "seasonal" cutoff periods. If orders are received after a model-year final order due date, manufacturer’s new model year prices (increases or decreases) will be applied to contract pricing via contract amendment. Dealer will notify DES and customers of any model year price increases as soon as pricing is released by manufacturer. If not published on the Current Contract information (CCI), customer may contact dealer directly to obtain final order due dates for current model year.

  1. Passenger Vehicle Approval (only required by state agencies)
