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

POLICY STATEMENT

Direct payments may be made for those types of commitments/obligations for which little or no value can be added by processing the transaction through the standard procurement procedures. Campuses are responsible for establishing local policies which identify types and dollar thresholds for transactions authorized for direct payments and associated procedures for exception processing. Examples of direct payments may include but are not limited to public utilities, room rentals, rebates & reimbursements, books, subscriptions, publications, registration fees, and membership dues.
