Fraser Health will now require that all consultant engagements exceeding $50,000 must obtain secondary approval from the vice-president, facilities management and chief financial officer.
In compliance with Board directives and to complement position control and sound financial management practices, Fraser Health now requires that all consultant engagements exceeding $50,000 have a secondary approval by our vice-president facilities management and chief financial officer. Approval will be documented by a signature on the purchase requisition.
The BC Clinical and Support Services (BCCSS) Consultant Engagement Process, which we are required to follow, is an eight-step process that guides requesters through the consultant procurement process. The final step of the process is to send the signed purchase requisition and statement of work to BCCSS for purchase order creation.
Under the new process, requestors will be required to email both their signed purchase requisition and statement of work to the vice-president facilities management and chief financial officer who will provide a final approval. The approved purchase requisition will be returned to the requestor who will then send the full document package to BCCSS.
View the Consultant Engagement Process for more details on the new process.
As a reminder, all consulting engagements in Fraser Health must be procured through the BCCSS Consultant Engagement Process.
