"Prop Q" Reports
Pursuant to Chapter 21 of the San Francisco Administrative Code, City agencies are not required to submit purchase orders for goods and services under $10,000 to competitive bidding. Rather than relying on the bidding process for these purchase orders, City agencies are instead charged with exercising “good judgment” when placing them. These purchase orders are known Citywide as “Delegated Departmental Purchases” or, more often, “Prop Q Purchases.”
In conjunction with the OCA and Director Jaci Fong CMD is releasing these reports for informational purposes only. Last year Prop Q purchases exceeded $79 million. Approximately 15% of these purchases, or $11 million, were awarded to Local Business Enterprise (LBE) firms. Although not subject to the requirements of the LBE Ordinance, the small size of individual Prop Q contracts represent a significant opportunity for our LBEs. CMD staff would like to commend City purchasers who have shown a commitment to the LBE program.
Data from these reports can be obtained directly from Controller's website here.
Under certain circumstances, City departments may request that the CMD Director waive the LBE bid discount or LBE subcontracting goal for a particular contract. These circumstances include:
1. Sole Source Waivers
Under Section 14B.7(J)(1) of the 14B Ordinance, the LBE bid discount shall be waived when the Director finds, with the advice of the contract awarding authority and the Office of Contract Administration, that the needed goods or services are available from a sole source.
2. LBE Subcontracting Requirement Waivers
Under Section 14B.8(A) of the 14B Ordinance, the LBE subcontracting/subconsulting participation requirement may be waived by the Director when the contract awarding authority anticipates that there are no subcontracting opportunities or there are not sufficient LBEs available to perform the subcontracting work available on the contract.
Below are 14B approved waivers by quarter:
- Fiscal Year 2012-13 1st Quarter 14B Approved Waivers
- Fiscal Year 2012-13 2nd Quarter 14B Approved Waivers
- Fiscal Year 2012-13 3rd Quarter 14B Approved Waivers
