Procurement Plans and Schedules

A State agency planning to use Purchase of Service contracts (POS) or Personal Service Agreements (PSA) must submit a procurement plan to OPM for review and approval.  Approved plans are posted below.  The purchase of such services must also abide by the procurement standards established by OPM.

Procurement plans are agencies' initial estimates of upcoming procurements over a period of three fiscal years. OPM will continue to work with agencies throughout the year to create more competitive opportunities. The Covid-19 pandemic imposed constraints on administrative and planning capacity and created emergency procurement needs related to providing services for vulnerable populations. The Governor issued Executive Order 7GG to accommodate these urgent procurement needs. This disrupted plans to increase the share of competitive contracting in the state for FY 2021-2023. OPM Finance will continue to pursue its procurement strategies and focus on encouraging a more effective, transparent, and competitive procurement processes. This pursuit starts with the FY 2024-2026 procurement plans.

    If an agency wishes to change a service from competitive to non-competitive on its approved schedule, a Request To Amend Procurement Schedule must be submitted to OPM, via CORE-CT, at least three months before the service is scheduled for competitive procurement.  No requested amended to the procurement schedule shall be implemented until the agency receives written approval from OPM.  An agency should allow (at least) 15 business days for OPM to review a requested amendment to the procurement schedule.  If approved, an agency must publish the amended procurement schedule on its website. An agency may also decided - at any time and for any reason - to conduct a competitive procurement for an existing service, if an agency deems it necessary, appropriate, or otherwise in the best interest of the State.  In such instances, an agency is required to submit a Request To Amend Procurement Schedule to OPM, via CORE-CT, to rescind an approved program waiver.  If approved, an agency must publish the amended procurement schedule on its website.  As a courtesy, an agency should also notify any current contractor(s) providing the service about the amended procurement schedule.
