PROCESS FOR SELECTION OF VENDOR FOR FINANCIAL
AUDITING SERVICES
The Chancellor explained that proposals were solicited for financial auditing services.
Since only two proposals were received the Chancellor asked if the Committee wished
to extend the outreach to seek additional firms, modify the criteria for evaluating firms,
and hear presentations from the two firms.
Consensus:
• Administration was directed not to resubmit the RFP or extend the timeline;
however, future searches should be broadened to include appropriate professional
organizations.
•
The committee accepted the evaluation criteria.
•
Both vendors will be asked to make presentations before the Audit Committee.
However, staff will first hear the presentations and evaluate the firms. Mr. Michel
advised that under the Professional Services Procurement Act, firms must be rank
ordered.
Adjournment
With no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 4:45 p.m.
