Four primary procurement units, subject to the authority of the Board of Public Works, have jurisdiction over State procurement as follows:
The General Assembly established the twelve-member Procurement Improvement Council to provide a forum for discussion of procurement issues and problems. The members consist of the State Treasurer, the Secretaries of the Governor's Office of Small, Minority, and Women Business Affairs, Transportation, Budget and Management, Information Technology, and General Services, the Chancellor of the University System, the Procurement Advisor, the Director of the Governor's Office of Performance Improvement, one local government member, and two public members. The Council advises the Board of Public Works on the procurement process and makes recommendations for improving State procurements. The Council meets at least quarterly each year.
