This sample procurement policy is intended to help Community Action Agencies (CAAs) comply with the federal rules and regulations related to procurement transactions. You should review this sample policy thoughtfully and modify it to meet the needs of your organization and to comply with any applicable laws and regulations. When using this sample to develop, review or update a procurement policy, CAPLAW strongly recommends that you consult with counsel familiar with your CAA’s operations and the laws of your state.
Every CAA operates differently, especially when it comes to procurement. The goals of this sample policy are:
- to provide a template that meets the basic requirements for a procurement policy under the Uniform Guidance, and
- to offer recommendations (referred to in the resource as Compliance Tips) for drafting and implementing a procurement policy that benefits, rather than burdens, CAA personnel and resources.
