Regulation Authority:

R.I. Gen. Laws § 37-2-13
R.I. Gen. Laws § 37-2-22

Purpose and Reason:

During the State of Rhode Island’s 2023 legislative session, HB5463 and SB0709 were passed increasing the thresholds for small purchases delegated authority effective December 31, 2023, codified in statute as R.I. Gen. Laws § 37-2-22. This statutory change requires the Procurement Regulations to be updated via 220-RICR-30-00-5 and 220-RICR-30-00-9. The Division of Purchases has determined that these updates must be addressed in regulation to ensure uniform applicability and compliance throughout the State, and to prevent potential confusion caused by outdated and misaligned information in regulation that no longer comports with the applicable statutory provision.
