To request an increase in Agency Certification for any Procurement category, please provide the following information to the Materials Management Officer:
- Provide written justification for increased certification; please do not ask for more than the agency needs. For example: the agency has specialized programs with internal product knowledge not used by other agencies; the agency has requested multiple delegations in the last three years and demonstrated the ability to successfully solicit the required supplies and services or construction.
- Provide an organization chart for the procurement department, as well as an organization chart showing the location of the procurement department within the overall agency structure.
- Provide the qualifications and experience of key members of the procurement staff; include any specialized knowledge by individual staff.
- An analysis of expected retirements of key procurement personnel and a succession plan that demonstrates the continued ability to conduct compliant procurements.
- An explanation of recent or expected increases in procurement volume that require a higher certification.
