LinkUniform Guidance: Updating the Sole Source Request Document
UCLA will implement the Procurement requirements of Uniform Guidance beginning July 1, 2018. Uniform Guidance (UG) takes a more restrictive view of what is eligible for non-competitive purchases than what has been available to UCLA per California law and UC policy. In order to comply with UG, federally funded non-competitive purchases in the planning stages now for orders to be placed after 7/1/18 will need to comply with UG rules: either (1) expressly authorized by the Federal Agency in response to a written request, or (2) available only from a single source. This information will be communicated more broadly in the weeks to come.
