Why am I being required to report monthly instead of quarterly?
In the past, reports were required quarterly. Act 87 of 2015 required OSP to report monthly to JLCB whether contracts it reviews are for discretionary or non-discretionary purposes. OSP continues to collect and collate this information in order to meet statutory obligations for reporting.
Non-discretionary contracts are those in which the State cannot realistically choose freely whether or not to procure the contractual goods/services. Because of one or more circumstances, the State is strongly obligated to immediately enter into a contract. For more information on classifying your contract refer this memo.
