The Purchasing Office oversees all solicitations, contract, and purchases of all commodities used by the College; manages surplus property; and maintains inventory records.
Procurement of goods and services for LFCC are done in compliance with all statutes of the Virginia Public Procurement Act of the Code of Virginia, regulations issued by the Division of Purchases and Supply within the Virginia Department of General Services, and policies of the Virginia Community College System.
The Purchasing Officer is LFCC’s procurement specialist. The Vice President of Financial and Administrative Services (VPFAS) is the authorized contracting officer for the College.
LFCC has many individuals assigned small purchasing authority for their departments/divisions. These individuals are issued state credit cards and process their purchases through the state procurement system, eVA. Small purchases are regarded as between $0 and $5,000.
Procurements that range from $5,000 to $50,000 are managed by the Procurement Officer and are solicited in eVA utilizing the Quick Quote process. Any solicitation beyond $50,000 must be processed as an Invitation for Bid (IFB) or a Request for Procurement (RFP).
