A contract may be awarded without competition when the Chief Procurement Officer determines in writing, after conducting a good faith review of available sources, that there is only one source for the required supply, service, or construction item. The Chief Procurement Officer shall require the submission of cost or pricing data in connection with an award under this section, and shall conduct negotiations, as appropriate, as to price, delivery, and terms. A record of sole source procurements shall be maintained as a public record, and shall list each contractor's name, the amount and type of each contract, a listing of the items procured under each contract, and the identification number of each contract file.
