317:10-1-1.Purpose
[Revised 09-01-17]

(a) The purpose of this Chapter is to describe the rules governing the contracting and purchasing requirements of the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA). The Contracts and Purchasing Divisions are internal divisions of the OHCA. These divisions provide the mechanism for the acquisition of goods, equipment, non-professional and professional services for the operation of the OHCA. These rules are superseded by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) Purchasing rules (OAC 260:115) whenever OMES has final authority on an acquisition.

(b) Different rules apply depending on which of the above three entities is making the acquisition and whether the purchase is for professional services or non-professional services and products. When an acquisition is made by OMES, the OMES Purchasing rules at OAC 260:115 apply. When an acquisition is made by OHCA, these rules must be read in conjunction with the OMES rules.

The official rules are published by the Oklahoma Secretary of State Office of Administrative Rules as Title 317 of the Oklahoma Administrative Code.
