Emergency Purchases


What are they?

Executive Branch Agencies have the authority to make emergency purchases, in accordance with Code 63G-6a-803, in order to prevent a lapse in a critical government service; mitigate a circumstance that is likely to have a negative impact on public health, safety, welfare, or property, including a natural disaster; or protect the legal interests of a public entity.


Executive Branch Agencies should review Code 63G-6a-803, Rule R33-8-401, and Purchasing Policy PURCH-01 to learn more about conducting emergency procurements.  Agencies are also encouraged to talk with their designated support pod personnel for clarification and assistance.
