Uniform Guidance Purchasing Threshold

Effective immediately, the dollar threshold for which UG requirements apply will be increased from $5,000 to $10,000 per order value. The key effect from this change is that non-contract purchases subject to Uniform Guidance compliance (i.e., federal or state-funded WBS elements) will require competing quotes (3) or Single Source Justification (if applicable) when the overall order value is $10,000 or greater (the current threshold is $5,000). Please keep in mind that other requirements may continue to apply to WBS-based orders in the $5,000 to $10,000 range (e.g., capital GL account for equipment, etc.)
