COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 04 (1985-86)
SUBJECT: CHAPTER 85-194, LAWS OF FLORIDA
It is expressly understood and agreed that any articles which are the subject of, or required to carry out this contract shall be purchased from the corporation identified under Chapter 946, F. S. in the same manner and under the procedures set forth in Section 946.15(2), (4), F. S.; and for purposes of this contract the person, firm, or other business entity carrying out the provisions of this contract shall be deemed to be substituted for this agency insofar as dealings with such corporation.
This change in the law was communicated by the Division of Purchasing in its Memorandum No. 2 (85-86). However, contracts continue to be executed which do not contain this required provision. Our office intends to monitor compliance with the mandated provision in agency contracts on a sample basis.
Any questions regarding this matter should be directed to the Bureau of Auditing at 410-9194, Suncom 210-9194.
