Report 2014-301: Judicial Branch Procurement: Five Superior Courts Did Not Consistently Follow Judicial Branch Contracting Practices (Release Date: November 2014)

Recommendation #10 To: Superior Court of California, County of Fresno

To improve its procurement practices and comply with the judicial contracting manual, the Fresno court should use the appropriate solicitation method for the dollar value of the procurements it seeks.

60-Day Agency Response

The Local Contracting Manual has been revised. The Court has determined a threshold of $80,000 is reasonable and appropriate for Non-IT Goods and Services. The CFO provides oversight as to the appropriate use of the larger value RFQs. The revised manual is in the approval process with the Court Executive Committee and is expected to be adopted within 30 days.
