Purpose and Responsibilities
Materials Management is responsible for Judicial's
procurement (i.e., lease, rental, purchase) of goods and services. The
Judicial Branch is committed to meeting the objectives of Title 4 Section 98
of the Connecticut General Statutes, which requires the issuance of purchase
orders and the transmittal of all commitments to the State Comptroller.
It is the duty of Materials Management to ensure that
the equipment, supplies, forms, and contractual service needs of the
Judicial Branch are acquired, accounted for, and disposed of in compliance
with applicable rules and regulations of the Branch and the State.
Purchasing Process Standards
Purchasing contracts will be awarded to the low cost
responsive bidder. In addition to compliant product specifications, other

policies and procedures of the Office of the Chief Court Administrator, the
Materials Management Unit will supervise the process for acquiring C.H.R.O.

State Set-Aside program is established each fiscal year with the approval of
the Executive Director of Administrative Services, Office of the Chief Court
