POLICY OBJECTIVE

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

POLICY STATEMENT

CSU campuses and campus auxiliaries may contract with State agencies and other entities to provide services related to research, workshops, institutes, and other educationally-related studies or projects needed by the State that are generally available only from institutions of higher education or their employees. These contracts are exempt from the State's general requirement of competitive bidding prior to making award.

Where the primary responsibility for fulfilling the contractual obligations will rest with an auxiliary organization, the contract should be placed directly with the auxiliary organization. Public Contract code Section 10340(b)(3) provides that State agencies may obtain the services of the CSU or auxiliary organization without securing competitive bids.
