Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, the Chief Procurement Officer may initiate a procurement above the small purchase amount specified in FNSBC 16.12.030 when the officer determines that an unusual or unique circumstance exists that makes the application of all requirements of competitive sealed bidding or competitive sealed proposals contrary to the public interest, including, but not limited to, the need to meet new or unique state requirements, new technologies, or to achieve best value. Any special procurement under this section shall be made with such competition as is practicable under the circumstances. The Chief Procurement Officer in the contract file shall include a written determination of the basis for the procurement and for the selection of the particular contractor, and a report shall be made publicly available at least annually describing all such determinations made subsequent to the prior report. (Ord. 2002-29 § 9, 2002. 2004 Code § 16.25.050.)
