The Procurement Policy Board has the authority and responsibility to review, comment on, and recommend, consistent with the Procurement Code, rules and practices governing the procurement, management, control, and disposal of supplies, services, professional and artistic services, construction and real property, and capital improvement leases procured by the state. The Board has a statutory obligation to provide a program for professional development of procurement staff throughout the state. The Board is also required to maintain a clearinghouse for all contracts let and sustain a communication reporting tool to promote transparency within the procurement process. The demand for classes remains high but in-person participation was halted by the pandemic. Classes were held virtually where available. The Board was able to maintain its review of state contracts and conflicts of interest. The Board continues to review all state real property leases and comment on proposed rules governing procurement. It continues to maintain a clearinghouse for all state contracts awarded and a system for procurement communication reporting. Along with the increased training, the Board needs to continue to meet statutory requirements of maintaining a clearinghouse for all contracts let, sustaining the communication reporting tool, and reviewing and commenting on proposed rules and practices governing procurement. The pandemic remained as the main factor in the decrease in Board meetings held during the fiscal year. The Board has made a commitment to increase its meeting frequency in the future.
