Purchasing Laws in California

Gain a better understanding of the myriad of public procurement laws in California.

California presents a complex web of public purchasing rules. The laws and regulations governing public purchasing in California vary by the type of agency, what is being purchased, and sometimes how the contract will be funded. This material will explain the structure of California public purchasing laws so that vendors can know how to find the rules specific to their market. You will learn how your approach must vary depending on the type of agency, what the agency is buying, and how they are paying for it. The limitations on the authority of different agencies will be explained, along with the burdens and impacts of vendors selling into California, so that you can know the key risks of California purchasing laws, and how to discern the details of legal compliance relating to a particular kind of sale. Learning this information is the critical first step to understanding California purchasing laws, and how to ensure that efforts to sell to California public agencies meet basic legal requirements and manage business risk.
