OverviewState Agency Form Contract
Through the authority delegated to executive branch state agencies under General Letter #71, certain purchases of goods and services costing less than $200,000 (subject to limitations outlined in GL #71) may be made without prior and specific approval of the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) provided that a DAS contract does not exist for the goods and/or services being acquired. Executive branch state agencies should be aware that all contracts entered into must be approved as to form by Office of the Attorney General.
For your convenience, a sample State Agency Form Contract has been provided by the office of the Attorney General for use with such purchases and should be used by state agencies when making purchases under General Letter #71. Please contact your agency’s Assistant Attorney General for additional guidance.
