COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 24 (1991-92)
SUBJECT: DOCUMENTATION FOR PURCHASES FROM LOCAL PURCHASING SOURCES
Before purchasing from a local purchasing source, the agency shall consider whether the specifications, terms, and conditions for the commodity or contractual service meet or exceed the specifications, terms and conditions negotiated and executed by the Division of Purchasing and justify how such purchase would provide a cost savings to the State. The Division of Purchasing issued its Memorandum No. 51 (91-92) to distribute Form PUR 7066, Local Purchasing Source Report, which is to be used by agencies to document and justify purchasing from a local purchasing source. For each purchase from a local purchasing source of any commodity or contractual service available from an agreement or contract negotiated and executed by the Division of Purchasing, the voucher submitted for payment to our office must have attached a properly completed Form PUR 7066 reflecting a cost savings to the State.
