Report 2012-301: Judicial Branch Procurement: Six Superior Courts Generally Complied With the Judicial Branch Contracting Law, but They Could Improve Some Policies and Practices (Release Date: March 2013)

Recommendation #15 To: Superior Court of California, County of Yolo

To ensure it receives the best value, the Yolo court should document that it compared the offerings of multiple vendors when using leveraged procurement agreements unless the judicial contracting manual or guidance on the particular leveraged procurement agreement does not require such comparison.

60-Day Agency Response

The Court has modified a form provided by Riverside Court Shared Procurement Services to document its comparison of multiple vendors when using Leveraged Procurement Agreements (LPA). The Judicial Branch Contracting Manual was updated in August, 2012, to include more detailed guidance on the use of LPAs, which the Court will use in future procurements.
