The college shall solicit bids or proposals from Howard County-based firms whenever it is reasonable and practical, and is deemed to be in the best interests of the college to do so.  Firms shall be asked to indicate location of principal place of business on the bidder’s application form as a means of identifying such county-based firms.  Preference shall be given to these firms in competitive solicitations whenever such purchases would not be disadvantageous to the college or in conflict with other laws or regulations.
