please consider and provide the answers to the questions listed below.
Logistical related inquiries should be addressed to Casey Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org.

is not in the business of procurement but we are interested in helping to
determine and shape our State’s requirements.
You should investigate

price/service contracts if applicable.
We will contact you to discuss
the establishment of an appointment if appropriate.
