Exclusions: The State of South Carolina’s Participating Addendum excludes the purchase of Ballasts and Lamps; Paper Towels, Toilet Paper and Dispensers; Trash Can Liners; Office Supplies; Food Service Equipment as there are Statewide Term Contracts for the purchase of these specific items. As well as excluding any single item with an individual unit cost of $10,000.00 or more. Please note that the Statewide Term Contracts for these product exclusions may require a minimum quantity order and/or may not meet a particular or exceptional operational need of a using organization (Examples: can liner that is exceptionally thick/strong or of an unusual color or size, paper products that will not fit a particular dispenser). In such situations, using organizations may use this agreement to complete purchases to meet their specific operational needs.
