To ensure that the Authority is complying with state contracting rules and is following the guidelines of the State Contracting Manual , General Services should conduct a procurement audit of the Authority by January 1, 2013.
Effective May 1, 2012, General Services indicated that the Authority lacks sufficiently trained staff to conduct procurements and subsequently decreased the Authority's purchasing authority to the minimum level of $4,999.99. Thus, General Services now conducts all of the Authority's purchases above $4,999.99. As a result of decreasing the Authority's purchasing authority, it is not necessary for General Services to conduct a procurement audit. (See 2013-406, p. 248)
