promulgate administrative regulations for the implementation of the Kentucky
Model Procurement Code (KRS Chapter 45A). This administrative regulation
implements the provisions of KRS 45A.035(2)(i).
Section 1. Multiple contracts may be

multiple contracts may be in the commonwealth's best interests. A determination
that multiple contracts may be awarded shall not preclude the award of a single
contract for the procurement.
Section 2. If it is determined in writing
by the purchasing officer after the evaluation of competitive bids, or the
closing of competitive negotiations, that bids or offers substantially and

be awarded as to the part of the procurement for which responsive bids or
offers have been received. Bids or offers determined nonresponsive shall be
disqualified and new bids or proposals may be solicited, on the same or revised
terms, conditions, and specifications. (5 Ky.R. 577; Am. 950; 6 Ky.R. 10; eff.
