What is the Set Aside Program?
In accordance with ARS & 41-2636 of the Arizona Procurement Code all state governmental units are required to endeavor to set aside one percent (1%) of new purchases or contracts for products, materials, and services from certified nonprofit agencies that serve individuals with disabilities (CNAID) and Arizona Correctional Industries (ACI).
The Set-Aside Committee convenes quarterly to determine those materials and services that are provided, manufactured, produced and offered for sale by Arizona industries for the blind, certified nonprofit agencies that serve individuals with disabilities and Arizona correctional industries and that satisfy the requirements of state governmental units and to establish a fair market price for all approved materials and services offered for sale that meet these requirements.
Pursuant to A.R.S. 8 38-431.02, the Set-Aside Committee is providing this notice regarding the physical and electronic locations where all public notices regarding public meetings, including the meeting agenda, are posted. The Set-Aside Committee posts all public notices, including the agenda, electronically at the Arizona Public Meeting Notices Website and the State Procurement Office website.
The Set-Aside Committee also physically posts all public notices, including the agenda, at the lobby of the State Procurement Office, 100 N. 15th Avenue, Phoenix AZ 85007.
