Contracts Requiring Board Approval
Contracts involving an obligation greater than the current bid threshold require Board approval. Please reference Purchasing’s FAQ page for the current bid threshold entitled “BID THRESHOLD FAQS.”
Each new or amendment contract will require completion of a “Request for Contract Presentation to the Board of Trustees for Approval” form. All information on this form must be completed to avoid a delay in processing this request. The contract documents will be prepared and an authorized District Contract Number will be assigned after approval signature by the Vice President of Business Services or his/her authorized designees.
Any donations received must have the Proposed Gifts and Donations form filled out completely. This form does require that the vendor provide their name, address, signature, and an assigned value or the donated/gifted items. Upon submittal of the completed form, please notify the Purchasing Department if the item has been already received by the department/division and if there are any costs associated with delivery to the campus.
