POLICY OBJECTIVE

This policy articulates the CSU’s requirements related to emergency transactions to ensure procurement and contracting activities are in compliance with applicable regulations.

POLICY STATEMENT

When an emergency involving the public health, welfare or safety, or the protection of State property or programs requires the immediate issuance of a purchase order, standard agreement, or service order without a formal issuance of bid invitations, a statement regarding the nature of the emergency will be attached to the requisition, and be signed by both the requestor and the campus procurement officer. Such statement shall include an attestation that an immediate threat to the public health, welfare or safety or damage to State property exists.
