The Howard Community College president authorizes the director of procurement to make an award of a procurement contract without competition in accordance with the authority provided in §16-314 of Education Article of the Maryland Annotated Code whenever the director of procurement determines that there is only one available source for the subject of the procurement contract.  Before awarding a procurement contract to a sole source for a contract that is not a small procurement, the director of procurement will obtain approval of the board of trustees and any other approval required by law.
