BuyBoard News and Updates

 

BuyBoard Advisory - Purchasing with Federal Funds 

Purchasing through a cooperative or “interlocal contract” satisfies the Texas state law requirement of local governments to seek competitive procurement for the purchase of goods or servicesi. Therefore, you may purchase goods and services from a vendor through BuyBoard under Texas law without having to conduct your own competitive procurement. If, however, you are procuring goods or services through a BuyBoard contract using federal funds, you may have additional requirements under federal law, as explained in this Advisory. These requirements may include, but are not limited to, the procurement standards of the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, 2 CFR 200 (sometimes referred to as the “Uniform Guidance” or, when related to federal grants administered by the U.S. Department of Education, "EDGAR”).

To assist BuyBoard members (“Members”) considering making cooperative purchases using federal funds, BuyBoard is providing this annual Advisory,  which contains general information on purchasing with federal funds as well as general information on BuyBoard’s procurement process.

The BuyBoard Advisory documents, including Appendix A, can be found here:

HB 1295 - Conflict of Interest - Texas Cooperative Only

For contracts entered into on or after January 1, 2016, Texas Government Code Chapter §2252.908 (H.B. 1295) provides that a Texas governmental entity or state agency may not enter into a contract that either (1) requires an action or vote by the governing body of the entity or agency or (2) has a value of at least $1 million, unless the business entity submits a disclosure of interested parties to the governmental entity or state agency. The Texas Ethics Commission (Commission) has adopted a certificate of interested parties form (Form 1295) and adopted rules requiring the business entity to file Form 1295 electronically with the Commission. Information from the Commission regarding the requirements, including rules and filing information, are available on the Commission’s website at the following links:

The Local Government Purchasing Cooperative d/b/a BuyBoard®, as a collective of local governmental entities that have jointly agreed to perform a governmental function or service, is not a business entity under this law. (See, 1 Tex. Admin. Code 46.3(b).) However, BuyBoard vendors may be business entities and may, for certain purchases and contracts from Texas BuyBoard members, be required to file disclosures under Texas Government Code Chapter 2252. It is the responsibility of vendors to determine the applicability of, and comply with, all disclosure laws including Chapter 2252. Disclosures will not be handled by BuyBoard administration.

v. 01.08.2016

Quote Verification Information

If you need a quote verified for contract compliance, please send the request, along with the vendor's quote, to Connie Burkett, BuyBoard Contract Administrator. Quote verification requests may be emailed to connie.burkett@tasb.org. Due to the high volume of quote verification requests, we ask that you allow 48 hours for processing.  Quote verification requests are handled in the order they are received.

Notice to BuyBoard Members

The following vendors’ BuyBoard contracts have been suspended for outstanding BuyBoard service fee balances. So long as the vendors’ contract(s) remains suspended, BuyBoard cannot process purchase orders for these vendors.

New Blanket PO Process

As of February 1, 2019, BuyBoard will no longer enter Blanket Purchase Orders (BPOs) as they are initially received.

We understand that BPOs are a necessary part of the purchasing process for our members, and we have developed three (3) options for members to use in reporting BPO items to BuyBoard. Instead of recording the original Blanket Purchase Order amount, we will record only the actual amounts used against the BPO.

Please review the options below to see what best suits your needs and reporting capabilities.

As you use a BPO for BuyBoard purchases, please choose one of the following methods:

  • Option 1: Send BuyBoard a copy of the vendor invoice you receive for a purchase made against a BPO.
  • Option 2: Send BuyBoard a copy of the individual/subsequent purchase orders placed against a BPO.
  • Option 3: Send an Excel spreadsheet to BuyBoard monthly, showing the vendor, PO number, Invoice number, and dollar amount of any purchase made (or paid, depending on how you report) against your BPO. At the beginning of each month, you will report all BuyBoard purchases invoiced/paid the previous month. **NOTE** If interested, members can report all BuyBoard purchases in this manner.

As with all BuyBoard purchases, members must notify the vendor at the beginning of the purchasing process of their intent to use the BuyBoard contract for purchases.

The BuyBoard team appreciates your continued support and assistance as we transition our processes regarding this critical component of business. If you are interested in further explanation as to the reasons behind this change, please contact call us at 800.695.2919 or email us at info@buyboard.com or accounting@buyboard.com

 

PO Review & Contract Compliance

BuyBoard Staff members review each purchase order we receive, but we need your help in making sure purchase orders are processed correctly. In recent months we have noticed an increase in purchase orders that have been issued for items not awarded to the selected vendor. We can only enter purchase orders for the brands, products, and categories awarded to the selected vendor.

To ensure full contract compliance, it is crucial that members and vendors review the actual award information shown in BuyBoard prior to issuing purchase orders to BuyBoard vendors. It is equally critical that vendors review the actual award information shown in BuyBoard for their company prior to issuing quotes. 

Vendors receiving Request For Quote (RFQ) notifications for items not awarded to their company are asked to use the “No Response” button on the RFQ. This will alert the member that the vendor cannot supply the product(s) requested.

BuyBoard Proposal Schedule

One area that makes the BuyBoard somewhat unique versus other national cooperatives is our initiative to include local and regional vendors in our proposal opportunities. We hope you will help in this effort by communicating to some of the vendors you are familiar with, or are currently using, about these upcoming opportunities to become a part of the BuyBoard cooperative.

The following is the scheduled for upcoming proposals that have due dates from July 2018 thru January 2019. If you have vendors that may be interested, please have them contact us at bids@buyboard.com, or call 800.695.2919. Items marked with (*) are new proposal opportunities.

Self-Reporting Vendors

BuyBoard is pleased to announce we have a number of vendors who have agreed to report purchases for our members. The vendors on the list below will report completed orders on behalf of our members on either a monthly or quarterly basis.

To ensure proper reporting, BuyBoard members who wish to utilize these self-reporting vendors are advised to contact the vendor(s) to make sure your account is aligned with the vendor's BuyBoard contract(s). Once you have verified your account is aligned with the BuyBoard contract(s), POs should be sent directly to the vendor for processing. Vendor contact information, including primary contact person, phone, fax, and email information for each vendor can be found in the BuyBoard system.

ALL POs SENT DIRECTLY TO SELF-REPORTING VENDORS MUST INCLUDE THE BUYBOARD CONTRACT NUMBER.
