COMPTROLLER'S MEMORANDUM NO. 02 (1996-97)
SUBJECT: TRACKING OF COMMODITY PURCHASE ORDERS/CONTRACTS
Effective October 1, 1996, purchase orders/contracts for the acquisition of commodities will no longer be tracked through the Contract Information System in Central Accounting. The $60,000 threshold established by Comptroller's Memorandum No. 14 (92-93) for these purchases is rescinded. Documentation requirements established by the above memorandum, however, will remain in effect. These document requirements include documentation of the total contract/purchase order amount; the DMS catalogue number; the payment criteria; a copy of the method of procurement documentation, if applicable; and any special approvals as applicable. The Summary of Contract/Purchase Order form can also be used to furnish much of the needed information.
Early implementation of this memorandum is acceptable and encouraged.
