Information
Item
Public Hearing and Consideration of Ordinance No. ___________ Amending Sections 2.68.100 of the Edmond Municipal Code Providing for the Amount of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000.00) as the Minimum Quote Requirement for Purchases; 2.68.110 Purchases Exceeding Twenty Thousand Dollars and Less Than Fifty Thousand ($50,000.00); 2.68.130 Competitive Price Solicitation;  2.68.150 Bids, Formal Contracts Procedure; 2.68.310 Emergency Purchases; and Providing for Repealer and Severability.
Background
Staff recommends that the threshold for securing written quotations be raised for purchases from $15,000.00 to $20,000. This will not alter our current requirement of competitive bidding for purchases of $50,000 or more. These changes were reviewed and approved by the Finance Committee at their meeting on February 20, 2019. This change was suggested by our Purchasing Manager after review of our current processes.
