The expenditure of Johnson County Community College funds should be handled in a manner that assures the greatest ultimate value per dollar expended.

Where an item has been approved either expressly or by inclusion in the budget the board has adopted for the college, the president or the president’s designee is authorized to solicit purchase quotations, bids, and/or request for proposals (RFP), or process such purchases in accordance with policies and procedures of the college.

The Board of Trustees of the college retains the right to deviate from any and all of the provisions of Section 215 (Purchasing), as the board shall determine from time to time, for the acquisition of products, goods and services or a combination thereof.

Under Kansas law, all contracts relating to purchase of goods or services must be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Kansas, and the college may not agree to submit to the jurisdiction of any court other than a court of the state of Kansas.

The Board of Trustees of the college reserves the power to omit or modify any of the otherwise mandatory contract provisions determined or annunciated from time to time by the Department of Administration of the state of Kansas.
