Board governance policy number 5

Policy to determine the level of expenses authorized to be decided at each management level of the CBHSSJB, the level of authority required to hire different personnel and the level of authority required to award certain contracts.

Purchasing Policy

Policy to promote effective management and control of financial resources and to obtain quality goods and certain services in a timely fashion from suppliers at the lowest cost and with favorable terms using modern competitive business practices while giving preference to local Cree entities. This Policy applies to all employees of the CBHSSJB, and as applicable, members of the CBHSSJB Board of Directors (Board).

Both policies were approved by the Board of Directors in March 2015. The current versions were updated December 6, 2016.

In addition to the Policies the documentation includes a PowerPoint presentation about the Policy and the Procedure relating to the issuance of exceptions. The exception issuance form will soon be added to this page.
