OMB has issued a final NEW ‘Super Circular’ to replace A-102, A-87 and A-133. The new circular contains new purchasing requirements and guidelines. Tribal organizations must revise and develop purchasing procedures to comply with the new OMB ‘Super Circular’.  This seminar on the purchasing process will enable you to design and develop an effective, comprehensive purchasing system.  Recipients of federal funds are required to establish and implement a purchasing system meeting the New Super Circular federal guidelines. Tribal organizations will be held accountable for meeting these guidelines and must possess an effective purchasing management system. This course provides the needed information.  This course is designed for Tribal financial managers, purchasing agents, and personnel with authority to buy as well as Federal officials with purchasing authority.
