Interested parties may visit the eMARS Vendor Self Service (VSS) website to search for specific items on contract. A pdf version of the Master Agreement (MA) terms and conditions with vendor contact information can be found at Kentucky's Transparency Contract Search.
Under Kentucky statutes (KRS 45A.050(3)), political subdivisions, including cities of all classes, counties, and school districts, may participate in all state agency Master Agreements to the same extent as agencies of the Commonwealth.
For audit purposes, it is highly recommended that local governments, schools, and universities maintain on file a copy of the state MA; the MA catalog (if applicable); the customer's order form; the final "build" sheet that was agreed upon by the vendor and the customer, where applicable; receipt documents indicating the item was delivered correctly; payment information (date and check number), etc.
