DFARS 252.244-7001, CONTRACTOR PURCHASING SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION (JUNE 2012), provides the 24 required elements of an approved purchasing system. Failure to adequately address one of these 24 elements can lead to purchasing system failure during a CPSR.
The DFARS contains 7 elements that specifically require that policies and procedures must be applied to the output of an approved purchasing system. If a contractor does not maintain a Purchasing Manual with policies and procedures that adequately address the 7 major elements and 60+ issues reviewed during a CPSR, DCMA may take several actions including but not limited to canceling a scheduled CPSR and failing the system under review.
ProcureLinx™ offers a Purchasing Manual that complies with all policies and procedures reviewed by DCMA during a CPSR. Contact us to learn more about this innovative solution to an issue that can mean the success or failure of your purchasing system.
