Funds in the amount of $102,000 are available in the General Fund Reserve for inventory purchases. Product is initially purchased from object 1150 and placed into Logistics and Furniture Repair inventory. As product is needed districtwide, the product and expense are both transferred to the using site.

Contract administration or evaluation is performed by the Project Manager (end user) and the Procurement Officer, who function as a team.
