Montco Modifies Procurement Policy
“If we needed chillers, or we needed a major engineering thing if something broke, you can’t shut down the courthouse for two weeks while you wait for a vote, so we wanted to add exigent circumstances for under $10,000 as well. We’re confident now that, because of the purchase order system and the contract requirements, this is going to be totally transparent. Nobody’s going to be able to pull anything off under $10,000.”
Matthews says they still require documentation for emergency purchases, but department heads can provide it later.
