ID-47 Waiver Submission (Budget Change Requests)

It has been brought to our attention that Appendix D (Historic Commonwealth Documentation Required For Budget Change Requests) items #26 and #31 state that 3 bids are required for purchases or repairs over $1,000. ß This is inconsistent with regulation 55 Pa code §6211.84 which states:

  • Purchase of services, major renovations, capital equipment, and supplies that exceed $5,000 annually must be made through a competitive bidding process or a request for proposal process.

ODP will NOT be requiring competitive bids for items with less than $5,000 annual cost.

Please keep in mind that Appendix D has not been updated or reviewed by ODP since 2006. If you have specific questions regarding documentation required to support your Budget Change Requests, please contact Steve Evitts.
