Change to the PSA/POS Request System Effective July 1, 2018

All Health and Human Service agencies must use CORE/CT for all their POS and PSA requests.

Changes to the PSA Request System effective September 8, 2011

Pursuant to the Connecticut General Statutes section 4-216, OPM is required to report PSA requests for outside audit services of state entities to the Auditors of Public Accounts (APA) immediately upon receipt of such request.  The APA then has 15 days to review such a request to determine if the audit services are necessary and whether they could be provided by the APA.   To enable OPM to more expeditiously identify and review such requests, the PSA Request System has been modified to add a new radio button asking:

Does the scope of work for this PSA include auditing services?

This new button can be found immediately under the “PSA Title”.  This button has been added to the four types of PSA Requests (Personal Service Agreement, Waiver PSA Sole Source, Non-Competitive PSA, Amendments PSA).
