The Town of Kindersley has completed a process to review its procurement and purchasing policy. A resolution of council has been passed to approve the changes.
Council members approved the revised procurement and purchasing policy at a meeting on April 9. Councillor Elyse Moss spearheaded the process to review the policy, so she was asked to comment on the process and the changes.
Moss said the policy was reviewed about a month ago with council’s support. The changes include updates to definitions in the policy to provide greater clarity for everyone, but there are also changes to the policy with respect to making sure expenditures are made appropriately.
“We have added some additional checks and balances,” Moss said, recognizing one of the changes specifies that all purchases of more than $10,000 in value have to be brought forward to council for further review.For more on this story, please see the Apr. 11 print edition of The Clarion.
