To comply with state law, Covered California should ensure that its staff comply with the changes to its recently-adopted procurement manual that incorporate contracting policies and procedures that are substantially similar to the provisions contained in the State Contracting Manual.
The Procurement and Contract Manual was adopted by the Covered California Board in January 2016. Additionally, a Program Contract Management Handbook was issued to all Covered California employees, program areas, and Program Contract Managers along with training for Program Contract Managers in March 2014. A recent refresher training was completed at the end of 2015. Supporting documents will be submitted via the California State Auditor's secure email system.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
