The State Procurement Office (SPO) monitors compliance of state governmental units (stated as SGUs or agencies herein) with state procurement laws. The Control Self-Assessment (CSA) is designed to focus on an agency's compliance with the State of Arizona Procurement Code (APC), applicable state and federal laws, executive orders, SPO Technical Bulletins (TB), SPO Standard Procedures (SP), agency delegation of authority agreements, and best practices per TB 003 - Procurement Compliance Reviews (PCR).
The objective of the CSA, through collaboration with the SPO Compliance Unit, is to help identify and resolve areas of non-compliance within the agency's procurement office. SPO and SPO Compliance are resources to the agency to help maintain procurement compliance controls.
The CSA may also serve as reference material in granting delegations of authority or in performing a regular SPO PCR. Agency management and end-users may also use this checklist as a tool to meet the complex demands of the state procurement process or as a guide to implementing procurement controls.
