Summary

The bill modifies the requirements for a state agency to make an
emergency procurement when there exists a threat to public health,
welfare, or safety under emergency conditions as follows:
  • Current law authorizes a designee of the chief procurement
officer or the procurement official to make an emergency
procurement. The bill repeals the authorization of a

designee to make an emergency procurement.
  • Current law specifies that a state agency is required to
make an emergency procurement with competition as is
practicable under the circumstances. The bill requires a
state agency to obtain at least 3 informal bids in executing
an emergency procurement.
  • For an emergency procurement that exceeds $150,000, a
state agency is required to provide to the state controller a
written determination of the basis for the emergency and
for the selection of any vendor awarded a contract; and
  • A state agency is required to provide to the state controller
a written attestation that no conflict of interest exists
between the vendor awarded the contract and the state
agency awarding the contract or within that state agency
and that the selection of the vendor and reason for the
procurement were not unduly influenced by the person
executing the procurement or any officer or employee of
the executive branch of state government.
The state controller is prohibited from approving a contract or
invoice for an emergency procurement unless the state agency has
obtained 3 bids, provided a written determination of the basis for the
emergency and selection of the vendor when required, and provided an
attestation that there is no conflict.
