- ECONOMIC/SINGLE SOURCE: Use of another supplier would result in incompatibility with existing conditions; require considerable training, time and money to evaluate; the goods are being used in ongoing long-term projects; and/or the product offered is at a substantial discount below current market conditions and price structures.
