The UASD presented a three-hour training event in April, prior to the effective date of SB 190 from the 2013 legislative session, and SB 153 from the 2012 legislative session. Both bills effected many changes in the State Procurement Laws, with which districts must comply.

The Association will develop and provide a template for member districts that districts may use as a guide in adopting procurement rules as required by statute. Rules may be adopted by or before May 14, 2014. The Association will have a Procurement Rules Template for districts by or before the UASD Convention on November 6, 7, and 8 to be held at the Utah Valley Convention Center. Training on the procurement statute, along with templates and forms will be available at the convention.
The Utah State Division of Purchasing & General Services has provided some online resources for state agencies. Some of these resources may be helpful to districts.
