The AOC, the Supreme Court, and the first, second, and fourth districts should implement procedures to ensure that they follow a competitive process for their procurements when required.
The Court developed and implemented a comprehensive checklist to ensure the documentation of fair and reasonable pricing, evaluation and selection processes, and justifications and approvals for sole-source purchases are addressed going forward. The checklist was forwarded to the email address below on December 11, 2014.
This will be fully implemented at the same time the AOC implements that changes in the procedures.
Will ensure going forward that when it is determined that the pricing is fair and reasonable, documentation for such determination is maintained in the appropriate procurement file.
The Supreme Court has developed a draft checklist to ensure it adheres to procurement requirements. However, the Supreme Court has not yet finalized the document or used it when entering into new contracts.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
