STATE AND DEPARTMENTAL PURCHASING PROCEDURES
The staff member must follow applicable departmental, divisional and agency purchasing policies and procedures when purchasing goods and/or services for clients.
The staff member will authorize services and approve rate of payment in accordance with the usual and customary rate (UCR).
AUTHORIZATION FOR SERVICES
The staff member will ensure that written authorization is made either before or at the same time as the purchase of services. When the staff member verbally authorizes services in an emergency situation, there must be prompt documentation and the authorization must be confirmed in writing and forwarded to the provider of services. A vendor who provides services that are authorized by RSB must agree not to make any charge to or accept any payment from an applicant or client or a member of the individual’s family unit unless the amount of the charge or payment is previously known and approved by RSB.
