                                           FORWARD

     The South Carolina Consolidated Procurement Code, hereinafter referred to as the Code,

was enacted in 1981 (Reference, Title 11, Chapter, Code of Laws of South Carolina 1976, as

amended). The Code provided all government bodies procurement authority of $2,500.00 per

commitment. Simplified small procedures were allowed for these transactions.

     The State Government Accountability and Reform Act of 1993 made significant changes to

the Code designed to update dollar limits, streamline processes and simplify procedures.

General agency procurement authority was increased from $2,500.00 to $5,000.00. The initial

dollar threshold for general application of the Code was raised from $500.01 to $1,500.01. The

formal sealed bidding threshold was raised from $2,500.00 to $25,000.00. A second major

revision of the Code was enacted on June 13, 1997, to more efficiently manage the State’s

procurement activity by providing additional procedures to enhance quality in the goods,

services, and construction being procured under the Code and to ensure that the Code’s

procedures allow for implementation of electronic commerce.

     Although the Code currently provides central procurement authority in the Materials

Management Office for all procurements exceeding $5,000, governmental bodies may request

additional authority through the certification process to increase the basic $5,000 limit to higher

limits for established categories of procurements as well as for specific items that fall within the

particular expertise of the agency. To date, forty-one agencies have been granted certification of

various dollar amounts.

     The document is prepared in an attempt to highlight the Code requirements. It is not

intended to be all inclusive. It is merely a “nutshell” guide which references the Code and

Regulation sections of most concern to auditors. Further, this guide assumes the reader has a

working knowledge of South Carolina State Government.


                                                 1
                    CODE AND REGULATION REFERENCES

       The following Code and Regulation references are of key interest:

I.     PURPOSES AND POLICIES

       Code reference 11-35-20

       This section of the Code expresses its basic intent as the following purposes and

       policies:

       a)   to provide increased economy in state procurement activities and to maximize to
            the fullest extent practicable the purchasing values of funds while ensuring that
            procurements are the most advantageous to the State and in compliance with the
            provisions of the Ethics Government Accountability and Campaign Reform Act;
       b)   to foster effective broad-based competition for public procurement within the
            free enterprise system;
       c)   to develop procurement capability responsive to appropriate user needs;
       d)   to consolidate, clarify and modernize the law governing procurement in this
            State and permit the continued development of explicit and thoroughly
            considered procurement policies and practices;
       e)   to require the adoption of competitive procurement laws and practices by units
            of state and local governments;
       f)   to ensure the fair and equitable treatment of all persons who deal with the
            procurement system which will promote increased public confidence in the
            procedures followed in public procurement;
       g)   to provide safeguards for the maintenance of a procurement system of quality
            and integrity with clearly defined rules for ethical behavior on the part of all
            persons engaged in the public procurement process; and
       h)   to develop an efficient and effective means of delegating roles and
            responsibilities to the various government procurement officers.

       Obviously, the Code intends to provide protection for state government, vendors that
       sell to state government and, primarily, the citizens of the State of South Carolina.

II.    OBLIGATION OF GOODS AND FAITH

       Code references 11-35-30

       This section states:

       Every contract or duty within this Code imposes an obligation of good faith in its
       negotiation, performance or enforcement. “Good and faith” means honesty in faith in
       the conduct or transaction concerned and the observance of reasonable commercial
       standards of fair dealing.

III.   APPLICABLE OF THIS CODE
                                            2
      Code reference 11-35-40
      Regulation reference 19-445.2000A

      The Code applies to every expenditure of funds by this State under contract acting
      through a governmental body irrespective of the source of funds. Where federal
      funds are used, the more restrictive requirements (federal or state) apply.

      A governmental body, as defined in Section 11-35-310(18) of the Code, means a state
      government department, commission, council board, bureau, committee, institution,
      college, university, technical school, agency, government corporation, or other
      establishment or official of the executive, or judicial branches of this State.
      Governmental body excludes the General Assembly or its respective branches or its
      committees, Legislative Council, the Office of Legislative Printing and information
      Technology Resources, and all local political subdivisions such as counties,
      municipalities, school districts, or public service or special purposes districts or any
      entity created by act of the General Assembly for the purpose of erecting monuments
      or memorials or commissioning art that is being procured exclusively by private
      funds

      Section 11-35-40(4) was added in 1987 to include, “The acquisition of any facility or
      capital improvement by a foundation or eleemosynary organization on behalf of or for
      the use of public funds in the acquisition, financing, construction, or current or
      subsequent leasing of the facility or capital improvement……” (Reference 1987 Act
      No. 170, Part II, 42)

IV.   PAYMENT FOR GOODS AND SERVICES RECEIVED BY THE STATE

      Code reference 11-35-45

      Upon satisfactory receipt of goods or services and the resulting invoice, whichever is
      received later, an agency has 30 working days to deliver vouchers for payment to the
      Comptroller General’s Office. (Lump sum agencies are responsible for payment
      within 30 working days.)

      Vouchers and payments not processed within 30 working days after satisfactory
      receipt of goods or services are subject to a late payment penalty charge up to 15%
      per annum from funds available to the agency.

V.    POLITICAL SUBDIVISION REQUIRED TO DEVELOP AND ADOPT
      PROCUREMENT LAWS

      Code Reference 11-35-50

      All political subdivision shall adopt ordinance or procedures embodying sound
      principles of appropriately competitive procurement no later than July 1, 1983.



                                           3
VI.    SCHOOL DISTRICTS SUBJECT TO CONSOLIDATED PROCUREMENT
       CODE

       Code Reference 11-35-70

       Irrespective of the source of funds, any school district whose budget of total
       expenditures, including debt service, exceeds $75 million annually is subject to the
       Code. However, they may develop an alternative code if, in the opinion of the Office
       of General Services, it is substantially similar to the State Code.

       A procurement audit of each one of these districts must be performed every three
       years. Currently, the districts are:

       1. Aiken County School District
       2. Berkeley County School District
       3. Charleston County School District
       4. Beaufort County School District
       5. Dorchester County School District Two

       13. Richland County School District Two
       14. Rock Hill School District Three of York County
       15. Lexington County District One

VII.   DEFINITIONS

       Code Reference 11-35-310

       Definition of 36 technical terms used in the Code and regulations are located in
       Section 11-35-310 of the Cod.

       One definition of key importance to you is that of a term contract per 11-
       35-310(35) that states: “Term Contracts” means a contract established by
       the chief procurement officer for a specific product or service for a
       specified time and for which it is mandatory that all governmental bodies
       procure their requirements for the goods and services during its term. If a
       governmental body is offered goods and services at a price that is at least
       ten percent less than the term contract price for the same goods or
       services, it may purchase from the vendor offering the lower price after
       first offering the vendor holding the term contract the options to meet the
       lower price. If the vendor holding the term contract meets the lower price,
       then the governmental body must purchase from the contract vendor. A


                                           4
        term contract may be a multi-term contract as provided in Section 11-35-
        2030.

        The General Assembly exempted certain agencies and commodities from the Code.
        The Budget and Control Board may exempt specific supplies or services from the
        purchasing procedures of the Code. See Attachment 1 for a current list of universal
        exemptions.

X.      CHIEF PROCUREMENT OFFICER

        Code Reference 11-35-810, 11-35-820, and 11-35-830 Regulation reference 19-

        These sections of the Code and regulations limit your procurement authority to
        $5,000.00. Higher procurement authority is possible through certification by the
        Budget and Control Board. Certification is contingent upon favorable audit results
        and recommendations by the Office of General Services. See attachment 2 for the
        current list of certified agencies.

NOTE:   These $5,000.00 limit applies to the total potential commitment of a purchasing
         transaction. A one year contract for $3,000 with an extension option for an additional
         year is a $6,000 procurement



XII.    APPROVAL OF INTERNAL PROCUREMENT PROCEDURES MANUAL
                                             5

                                             6
XVIII.   METHODS OF SOURCE SELECTION

         Code reference 11-35-1510
         Regulation reference 19-445.2000(d)

         This section list the authorized source selection methods of the Code.             All
         procurements must be made by one of these methods.

         For goods and services, consultants, and information technology the methods are:

                  -Competitive Sealed Bidding
                  -Competitive Sealed Proposals
                  -Fixed Price Bidding
                  -Competitive Best Value Bidding
                  -Small Purchases
                  -Sole Source
                  -Emergency
                  -Exemptions
                  -Procurements at Auction

XIX.     COMPETITIVE SEALED BIDDING

         Code reference 11-35-1520
         Regulation reference 19-445.2030

         A formal competitive procurement procedure for transactions greater than $25,000.00
         where award is based on low bid only. Formal solicitations must be developed.
         Sealed written bids must be returned before a designated date and time. When bids
         are received, they must be locked away until opened, all bids must be tabulated with
         the sheet being signed and witnessed. After evaluation of all bids, award is made to
         the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. All sealed bid solicitations must be
         advertised in South Carolina Business Opportunities (SCBO).

XX.      COMPETITIVE SEALED PROPOSALS

         Code reference 11-35-1530
         Regulation reference 19-445.2095

         A formal competitive procurement procedure for transactions greater than $25,000.00
         where award is based on weighted evaluation factors. Low bid is not the only award
         criteria. The same solicitation requirements listed above for competitive sealed
         bidding apply except that award may be based on evaluation criteria other than cost
         such as experience and knowledge of the industry. Negotiations are allowed with
         responsive offerors.

         Before an agency can make a request for proposal solicitation, it must prepare a
         determination justifying the use of this method instead of competitive sealed bidding.
XXI.     SMALL PURCHASE (LESS THAN $25,000.00)
                                             7
         Code reference 11-35-1550
         Regulation reference 19-445.2100

         Procurement less than $25,000.0 are made under this procurement authority. Large
         procurements cannot be artificially divided to give the appearance of a small
         purchase. The competition requirements for dollar thresholds are as follows:

         1 - Purchase not in excess of $1,500.00 - No competition is required if prices are
             considered fair and reasonable.

         2 - Purchases from $1,500.01 to $5,000.00 - Solicitations of verbal (telephone) or
             written quotes from a minimum of three qualified sources of supply. Use a
             telephone quote form for documentation. See Attachment 3

         why competitive sealed bidding is either not practicable or not advantageous to the
         State. Notice of solicitation must be made per Section 11-35-1520(3). Evaluation

         public health, welfare, critical economy and efficiency or safety. Emergency
