Policy VI-AA: Policy for the Establishment of a Centralized Purchasing System

Upon the recommendation of SACS and the Budget and Audit Committee, the Board approved the restructuring of the Purchasing Department to a centralized system in which authority, responsibility, and control of activities are concentrated in one administrative unit. A centralized purchasing system is designed to relieve the faculty and staff of many details connected with bid solicitation and procurement. A centralized system is more efficient because it enables the District to coordinate the common purchase requirements of campuses and departments to obtain better prices.
