POLICY OBJECTIVE

To establish system wide contracting and procurement policy as required by Education Code 89036.

POLICY STATEMENT

State contractors and recipients of State grants are required to maintain a "drug-free workplace." A campus may suspend payments under a contract or grant or terminate the contract or grant, or both, if a contractor or grantee has failed to comply with the legal requirements contained in Government Code Sections 8355, 8356, and 8357.

Every person or organization awarded a contract for the procurement of any goods or services, including Information Technology goods and services, shall certify that it will provide a drug-free workplace in accordance with Government Code 8355.

The certification requirement does not apply to a credit card purchase of goods of two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) or less. The total amount of exemption authorized herein shall not exceed seven thousand five hundred dollars ($7,500) per year for each company from which each campus is purchasing goods by credit card. It shall be the responsibility of each campus to monitor the use of this exemption and adhere to these restrictions on these purchases.
