To ensure that agencies in receipt of delegated Procurement Authority are complying with all applicable regulation incumbent upon them, the State Procurement Office (SPO) Compliance provides the following resources for State Governmental Unit self-monitoring and SPO onsite Procurement Performance Review.
Each year, SPO monitors compliance of State Governmental Units with state procurement laws. The Control Self-Assessment is designed to simplify a State Governmental Unit’s compliance with the Arizona Procurement Code, Executive Orders, Technical Bulletins, Standard Procedures, and Delegated Procurement Authority.
The Procurement Performance Review, with SPO Compliance Officer involvement, focuses on a State Governmental Unit’s ability to properly exercise procurement authority in accordance with the Arizona Procurement Code, Executive Orders, Technical Bulletins, Standard Procedures, and Delegated Procurement Authority.
Top-Tier Compliance will be recognized, beginning FY15, with SPO’s "Platinum Compliance Award", to be posted on an State Governmental Unit’s website. This award recognizes those State Governmental Units with outstanding compliance controls, subject to State Procurement Administrator final approval.
While you are encouraged to address any procurement compliance concerns with your immediate supervisor and/or management team, procurement personnel may choose to confidentially, or anonymously, report any compliance violations, concerns, or questions
