History. Acts 2003, No. 1315, § 13.

R1-19-11-1005 Professional and Consultant Services Contracts

Act 1315 of 2003 repealed ACA §19-4-1701 - 19-4-1717, et seq. relating to professional and consulting service contracts between the State of Arkansas and all of its agencies, boards, commissions, departments and institutions. The responsibilities for the maintenance of policies and procedures for this area have thus been assigned by state statute to the Office of State Procurement. The State Procurement Director is authorized by ACA § 19-11-1008 to adopt regulations regarding the competitive bidding process, requests for proposals, approval of professionals, etc. The regulations relative to professional and consultant services contracts can be found on the Office of State Procurement’s web site at: http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/procurement/Pages/default.aspx

Procurement Codes

Procurement codes are used to assist in the tracking of procurement activity. Proper use of the codes enables the Office of State Procurement (OSP) to automatically track purchases by category and provide required reports. Procurement codes must be included in all transactions paying for goods and services purchased by the State. Inquiries regarding further definition of these codes should be directed to the OSP.

Procurement codes can be found on the OSP web site:  http://www.dfa.arkansas.gov/offices/procurement/Documents/lawsRegs.pdf
