Caddell v. State ex rel. Dept. of Health

896 P.2d 571, 1995 OK CIV APP 57

Referencing the current §85.4.B subsection, the court upheld the premise that federal direct assistance grants fall within the spirit of the subsection B exemption and held that products obtained without expenditure of funds from the state treasury, but by debiting some “account” created from a federal direct assistance grant, should not be subjected to additional restrictions imposed by the Central Purchasing Act.  Additionally, the Court noted that the Central Purchasing Act was intended to protect the people of Oklahoma by promoting economy in government and reducing the likelihood of fraud. See 74 O.S. §§ 85.1 and 85.4
