Attorney General Opinion No. 11-09

Facility management and operation services contemplated by 10A O.S. §2-2-806, in connection with the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs, are not listed among the exclusions from the Central Purchasing Act. Citing Okla. Alcoholic Beverage Control Bd. v. Moss, 509 P.2d 666 (Okla. 1973), the Opinion stated state agencies have only those powers that are granted to them by statute, and an agency may not, by rule, expand its powers beyond those granted by statute. Thus, by promulgating a rule, the Office of Juvenile Affairs may not grant unto itself the power to be exempted from the Central Purchasing Act. See 74 O.S. §85.12.
