Checklist of Requirements for Contracts Less Than $250,000

This Checklist is for Contracts that do not require the Office of State Comptroller Approval, since they are below the threshold limit

OSC Checklist for Procurement – included in our SUNY Policy, Issued August 2000, updated March 2010

This Office of the State Comptroller New York State Procurement Bulletin provides a procurement record and checklist.

The Purpose of this bulletin is to describe the requirements of the Procurement Record (Record), as mandated by Article XI of the State Finance Law.  The Record is the documentation of the decisions made and the approaches taken in the procurement process. In addition, the Record serves as the basis for the Office of the State Comptroller’s (OSC) review and approval of the contract. The documentation necessary to support the decisions made by the Agency during the procurement process will depend upon the type and complexity of the procurement. A Record is required to be maintained for all procurements, and for procurements that require OSC approval, a Procurement Record Checklist (Checklist) must be completed and submitted to OSC with the contract package.

SUNY Threshold Chart

The Chart contains the SUNY Advertising and General Purchasing Limits.  The office of University counsel, in order to provide the campuses with appropriate legal advice on contracts entered into on behalf of the University, is responsible for review of all contracts prior to execution.  Review by the office of University counsel shall be performed by personnel assigned to the office of University counsel unless otherwise provided in writing by the University counsel.  Should you have questions, please contact your campus counsel.
