Vermont does not have a reciprocal preference law. All other considerations being equal, preference will be given first to resident bidders of the state and/or to products raised or manufactured in the state (Administrative Bulletin No. 3.5), and then to bidders who have practices that promote clean energy and address climate change (Executive Order 05-16).
The Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS), State Procurement Office annually reviews and publishes a list of states and their in-state preference information that would affect award outcomes in a procurement process.
