Public Works and Facilities Management can and have incurred costs from the same vendor in a calendar year for different projects causing the $5,000 threshold to be exceeded. When the threshold is exceeded without Committee approval, it is a violation of the procurement procedures established by the County Board. Staff is requesting to raise the staff approval threshold to $10,000. Discussions have taken place with the Auditor, CFO, County Administrator, and now Committee. Staff has full concurrence and will move this forward to Finance Committee for approval.
