Emergency Procurement Procedure – 62.05E.01

College Policy Number/Title:

If an emergency situation arises at Howard Community College, and it is necessary to procure goods or services that are reasonably expected to cost $100,000 or more, the president or designee will notify the board of trustees’ chair, or in the board chair’s absence, the board vice chair of the need for an emergency procurement.  The president is authorized to take whatever action is necessary to accomplish such a purchase including the execution of a contract.  The board will ratify and confirm any such action at the next regularly scheduled meeting, and a summary of the action taken, including the vote of each member, will be recorded in the official minutes.

If an emergency situation arises and it is necessary to purchase goods or services that are reasonably expected to cost between $50,000 or more and less than $100,000, the director of procurement, with the approval of the president, may make an emergency procurement by any method that the director of procurement considers most appropriate. 

Notice of the approval of a procurement contract awarded under this procedure will be published on the awarded bid list.
