Procurement Policies and Procedures

Written Determination

The South Carolina Consolidated Procurement Code requires written determination to support various transactions and decisions. Individual reports include Sole Source and Emergency Procurements and Trade-In Transactions. In compliance with Code Sections 11-35-210 and 11-35-2410, the Procurement Director reviews all determination documents and forwards all sole source documents to the Comptroller for approval. The approved documents are retained as part of the procurement file for specific POs or contracts in buyWays. A written determination or justification as part of a requisition form in buyWays (e.g. Sole Source form) is recognized as an approved written determination by either the Procurement Director or Comptroller once they have approved the requisition in buyWays.
