ITPO Award Package Submissions

​Procurement transactions requiring DoIT review and/or approval shall be submitted to DoIT’s Information Technology Procurement Office (itpo.doit@maryland.gov). The instructions below are provided to assist agencies in preparing and submitting procurement related transactions:

Step 1: Determine the Approval Path

  • Use the DoIT & BPW Approval Authority Chart to determine if the procurement requires BPW Approval. If the submission is an award request for a DoIT Master Contract, then please proceed directly to Step 2.
  • If the procurement requires BPW approval, then please follow the BPW Submission Procedures.
  • If the procurement does not require BPW approval, then please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: Submit to ITPO

  • E-mail submissions shall include the ADPICS number, and contract title in the subject line.
  • The e-mail must clearly indicate the action requested (award request, modification, renewal, etc.)
  • Proceed to Step 3 for checklists

Step 3: Document Checklist


Step 4: Award Timeline

  • Please allow at least 7-10 days for ITPO to review an award recommendation.  If all of the documents listed in the checklist are not submitted, then ITPO approval may take longer than 7-10 days. 

Step 5: After Conditional Approval by ITPO – ADPICS Path

  • The approval of an award package by ITPO is conditional. In order to finalize the approval, ITPO must receive the fully executed contract.
  • The award will be finalized when the agency properly submits the BPO/PO in ADPICS with DoIT in the approval path.
