Purchasing Why cant I just purchase what I need without all the hassle? (and other important questions) Because we must follow the guidelines of the West Virginia Purchasing Division The mission of the West Virginia Purchasing Division is to provide valued services to their customers by making sound and effective decisions in accordance with state law. The Purchasing Division was created for the purpose of establishing centralized offices to provide purchasing,
travel, and leasing services to the various state agencies. State procurement officers and their support staffs are required to use the handbook to perform procurement and other related activities. Without guidelines, we would have too many cases of Purchasing Gone Wild! So Where Do I Start Each section will be assigned a designated Purchasing Agent. This person will be available to help you with purchasing; this person is not required to complete the basic steps of purchasing
for you. However, this person will be available to you if you have questions or need assistance. Your Purchasing agent will also be responsible for reviewing your completed work, assuring compliance with purchasing requirements, and signing completed paperwork. What exactly are the steps? First, define your need. Next, determine the cost. If the purchase is $2500 or less, competitive bids are usually not required. Some purchases, however, do require three verbal bids, such as printers and furniture
(which are on the Statewide Contract). Your purchasing assistant should be able to help you determine which purchases require bids. Mandatory Resources Next, check mandatory resources. These resources include Statewide Contracts, State Surplus, Department of Corrections and the West Virginia Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (WVARF). Ok, I checked the Mandatory Contracts
What do I do now? If the product/service is normally available through the mandatory contracts but they are currently unable to provide it (out of stock, etc) you will need a waiver, which we will keep in our purchasing file. If the mandatory contracts DO have the items you need, follow the guidelines and purchase the items. What are the Guidelines? Fill out a Purchase Request. Obtain signature approval from:
YOU WANT WHAT?? 1. Your supervisor . Are the forms filled out? 2. Your Director ... Are they filled out correctly?? 3. Finance . Do we have the $ for this? 4. The Commissioner.
Purchase Request NOTE: WV-88 is the form we use for a Purchase Order. This form is to be used as a purchase request only. First line completed by our Purchasing person Your Section Purchasing person will give you the Account information
The rest of this form MUST be filled out completely. Must include Total Estimated Cost Director of Admin MUST approve You must have your supervisors approval and your Directors approval
Agency Purchase Order (WV-88) The Form WV-88, Agency Purchase Order, should be used when making purchases that cost $2,500 - $25,000. This form is easy to complete. Release Order (WV-39) Form WV-39 is to be used for orders against most statewide and open-end contracts.
Before you place an order, ask your purchasing person to fill this form out. Ok, forms are filled out, requests are signed Now What? Once the request has been signed by all indicating you have permission to purchase the desired product/service, find out if verbal bids are required (your purchasing assistant should be able to assist you with this). If bids are not required, determine your
method of payment. WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT OPTIONS? There are two payment options, P-Card and Invoice. State Purchasing Card (P-Card). If paying with a State Purchasing Card, locate a person in the Agency who has a Purchasing Card (P-Card), present your paperwork to them, and ask them to place your order. For orders under $2500, this is usually the preferred method of payment.
What other options do I have? Vendors can issue our agency an invoice. If you choose this method of payment, you must first determine if the Vendor is registered in FIMS and TEAM. If they are not, you are responsible for providing the Vendor with the forms required to register (W9 and Vendor Registration form) When it is determined that the Vendor is registered in FIMS and TEAM, and they are not on hold, place your order. Okay, I placed my order, what now?
Wait until you receive your order. Order must be checked within 24 hours of recepit. Once you receive your order, regardless of payment method, put your paperwork together (make sure its all there) and take it to the person responsible for making payment. More information regarding P-Card payments and payment by invoice will be presented by our Financial Services staff. Purchases $25000 or less In accordance with the Legislative Rules and Regulations, state agencies may make purchases in the amount of
$25,000 or less of certain commodities and services. The $25,000 limit shall be determined based on: a onetime payment, monthly payments or periodic payments. Issuing a series of requisitions or purchase orders to circumvent competitive bidding or to defeat the State PCard transaction or delegated purchasing limit, commonly referred to as stringing is prohibited by law. Purchases $2500.01 to $5000.00 I want to purchase Were having a sale! How

Emergency Purchases 911 whats your emergency?
What is an emergency purchase? Emergency purchases are purchases necessary when unforeseen causes arise. Emergency purchases are not to be used for hardships resulting from neglect, poor planning, or lack of organization by the spending unit. Failure to plan does not make it an emergency situation. Emergency Purchases Help! I need to purchase something now!! Simply said:
An emergency purchase is a short term solution to fix a problem. It is not to be used as a permanent or long term solution. It is not to be used to avoid the bidding process. Emergency purchase procedures allow for a solution to an immediate problem until it can be properly bid. Agencies must first examine statewide and/or piggyback contracts for availability of the product or service and utilize such, if available. Emergency Purchases An emergency purchase requires the written approval of the Purchasing Director. The decision for an Emergency Purchase is made on reasonable and
sufficient grounds, such as sudden or unforeseen circumstances that create a situation requiring that commodities or services be immediately purchased. A report of any such purchase, together with a record of the competitive bids upon which it was based, is to be submitted to the Purchasing Director. Its all here Emergency Purchases of $25,000 or Less To make emergency purchases of $25,000 or less: A minimum of three (3) written bids, if possible, should be obtained. Original written bids and a written
agency justification must be attached to the agency file. An Agency Purchase Order (WV-88) or a TEAM generated purchase order is required if the purchase exceeds $2,500. I have three bids, justification, and a purchase order Im ready to go! Emergency purchases over $25,000 for emergencies that occur during normal business hours: For emergencies occurring during normal business
hours, purchases require verbal approval by the Purchasing Director or his designee prior to making the purchase or the execution of any work. A written explanation must be provided immediately via fax which should include the estimated cost of the purchase. Ill fax the facts Emergencies occurring after business hours, on a holiday or weekend Agency may proceed with the emergency purchase and provide immediate justification
of the action to the Purchasing Director or his designee on the first working day following the emergency. I need it now!! Considerations while preparing an emergency purchase: Exercise sound judgment and discretion. Apply the highest levels of honor and integrity. Strive to avoid the appearance of perceived impropriety. Do not corruptly combine, collude, or conspire with one or more persons to lessen competition, cause a higher price
to be paid, or cause one vendor to be preferred over other prospective vendors. Written justification is required for any award not made to the lowest responsible bidder explaining why the low bid was rejected. Documentation is to be complete and orderly. Sole Source Purchases What is a sole source?
Sole Source Competition not available Only one known source Unique or special in nature Not an attempt to circumvent the normal bid process Determining Sole Source Vendor For purchases $25,000 or less: Determine the need. Determine validity.
Market research. Quote from vendor Vendor Must put in writing that they are Sole Source. Purchasing Requires: Description. FOB point of shipment. Price. Signature and date.
