The Chronology of a Requisition Req-Creation
Common Transaction IssuesBuyer Recommendations ~ Items identified that assist in expediting requisition
What is the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) ? Section 508 refers to federal guidelines that facilitate procurement of products which meet the accessibility needs of our campus community • ATI is the California State University system’s effort to implement federal and California law requiring access to technology for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to each campus. The initiative is a collaborative effort at each CSU university to provide access to technology in three major areas: Web accessibility, instructional materials accessibility, and technology procurement. A detailed description and list of resources are available at <http://www.calstate.edu/accessibility>.
Accessible Technology Initiative(ATI)Section 508 • All Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) purchases of hardware, software and IT services over $15,000 must be reviewed and approved by the Compliance Officer for each university division prior to submission to Contract & Procurement Management. • If the product requires electricity, has an interactive screen or display and transfers information, it probably falls under Section 508. • Purchasing an accessible product is often less expensive than providing accommodations (e.g. purchasing a video with caption vs. hiring an interpreter.)
Procurement Process for Software & Equipment Accessibility Software Acquisition http://access.sdsu.edu • Equipment Acquisition • Accessibility Evaluation Time: 2-4 weeks • Involve Us Early • VPAT – Voluntary Product Evaluation Template • Websites http://access.sdsu.edu/procurement.htm http://www.calstate.edu/Accessibility/EIT_Procurement/VPAT_Guide.html http://access.sdsu.edu/etiresource.htm http://access.sdsu.edu/index.htm
Bid Thresholds / Competition • “The CSU is committed to a policy of promoting fair and open competition, for the acquisition of goods and services to meet its needs” CSU Administrative Manual • Bid thresholds are set by State civil codes and adapted by the CSU. • Classification of the contract is the first step. • Contract for Goods • Information Technology Resources (ITR) Goods and Services Contract • Contract for Services • What will the dollar amount of the contract be, including freight, delivery, set up, installation and training, but not sales tax?
Bid Thresholds / Competition If your project is over $50,000.00, call us
Bid Thresholds / Competition Goods • Goods less than $50K – No competition required • Goods greater than $50K but less than $100K – Informal bid process with advertising in the State Contracts Register (Bidsync) • Goods greater than $50K but less than $100K may be the result of informal quotes from two or more Small Business/Micro Business without advertising. • Goods greater than $100K will be the result of a formal competitive bid.
Bid Thresholds / Competition Information Technology Resources • ALL ITR GREATER THAN $15K REQUIRE ATI COMPLIANCE. • ITR services greater than $5K require advertising in the Contracts Register (BidSync) • ITR acquisitions less than $50K – No competition required • ITR acquisitions greater than $50K but less than $100K may be the result of informal quotes from two or more SB/MB without advertising. • ITR acquisitions greater than $50K and less than $500K may be the result of informal quotes including advertising on BidSync. • ITR acquisitions greater than $500K will be the result of a formal competitive bid.
Bid Thresholds / Competition Services • Services less than $50K – No competition required • Services greater than $50K but less than $100K may be the result of informal quotes from two or more Small Business/Micro Businesses without advertising. • Services greater than $50K will be the result of a formal competitive bid. • Exception: Public Works contracts greater than $5K require formal competitive bids.
Sole Brand/Sole Source • Used when full and open competition is not possible • Each sole brand and sole source shall have a written justification and shall include the following: • The unique performance factors required and why are they required; • What other source/brands have been considered and why were they rejected (name names) • Sole brand and sole source shall not be justified because of: • A lack of advanced planning • Concerns related to the amount of funds available, cost • A contract or purchase made that was not competitively bid with a price of zero or below market can not be amended/ increased or a new order placed above the bid thresholds using the sole source / sole brand as a justification for not bidding. • Personal preference • Vendor performance, local service, maintenance and delivery
Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) / Small Business/Micro Business (SB/MB) • The state established a goal of at least 3% DVBE participation in all contracts, PO’s and PCC purchases. • All competitive bids require DVBE participation. • The state established a goal for the use of SB/MB in at least 25% of the State's overall annual contract dollars • All competitive bids must offer a 5% preference to SB/MB DVBE SB/MB Option: May be used for Goods, ITR, Services and Public Works. Contract value between $5K and $250K No advertising required Must obtain bids from 2 or more DVBE firms or 2 or more SB/MB firms.
Prohibited Practices • Use of SDSU name for personal gain • Use of SDSU name to obtain discounts for personal use • Conflict of Interest – purchase made from a company you own or from which you will benefit • Endorsement of products • Use of the CSU name without approval • Restrictive bid specifications • Splitting of orders to avoid bidding • Advance payments (Procurement Credit Card is not considered an advanced payment)
After the Fact (ATF) Plan Ahead • What is an After the Fact? Commitment of State Funds or Resources without an authorized Purchase Order. • Risk – Individual may be held personally responsible for payment to the Supplier. Staff/Faculty/Supplier may not be reimbursed or paid by the University for goods or services. Duplicate shipment of orders. • Ways to avoid an ATF: University Procurement Credit Card, Open Purchase/Service Order, OfficeMax on-line Ordering, Request Rush Purchase Order, Plan Ahead. • Educate Suppliers – It is important that Suppliers understand up front a PO is required prior to shipment of goods or services. Individuals who request goods or services without obtaining a PO in advance send a confusing message to our Suppliers. ATF’s delay payments causing loss of payment discounts to the campus. If you have an urgent need call us for assistance!
