As discussed in our July 11, 2018 announcement, effective August 1, 2018, RCUH’s micro-purchase threshold (“MPT”) will increase from $3,500 to $10,000 for all purchases, with the exception of purchases made using federal contract funds. Thus, RCUH will be utilizing an MPT of $10,000 for federal grant and cooperative agreement funds, as well as non-federal funds. For federal contract funds, the existing $3,500 threshold will remain in place until the $10,000 threshold is adopted by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”).
Revisions to the MPT (as well as other minor changes) have been made in the following:
- Policy 2.103 Request for Quotation (Sections I.A.; I.B.)
- Policy 2.106 Sole Source Purchase (Introduction; Section I.D.1.)
- Policy 2.107 Exempt Purchase (Introduction)
- Policy 2.110 Cost or Price Reasonableness (Sections II.A.; II.B.1.)
- Policy 2.201 Purchase Orders (Sections I.A.2.; I.B.3.; II.C.; II.D.; II.G.)
- Attachment 28 Procurement Checklist (New “Micro-Purchases” column added)
The aforementioned polices and document will be effective and available for viewing on the Policies and Procedures section of the RCUH website on August 1, 2018.
