(a) The Director of Public Service may, if authorized and directed by ordinance of Council, purchase equipment, supplies or services from another party, including another political subdivision, instead of by participating in contracts into which the Department of Administrative Services, Office of State Purchasing, has entered for the purchase of equipment, supplies or services, as provided in Section 145.08, if the Director of Public Service can purchase such supplies, equipment or services from such other party upon equivalent terms, conditions and specifications, but at a lower price than through such State contracts. Purchases that the Director of Public Service makes under this section are exempt from any competitive selection procedures otherwise required by law.
(b) If the Director of Public Service makes any purchase under this section, he or she shall maintain sufficient information regarding the purchase to verify that the conditions for making a purchase under this section have been satisfied.
