Consolidated Agency Purchasing Services (CAPS)
The CAPS section was created to provide procurement support to various agencies when the procurement function was consolidated (centralized) within the Bureau. In addition to the Department of Administration, (DOA), and its Divisions and attached Boards, CAPS also supports other agencies and departments.
Each agency the CAPS section supports has responsibility for its financial management. The function of CAPS is to assist agencies through the procurement process, ensuring compliance with State of Wisconsin’s procurement rules and regulations, and providing the agencies the procurement authority for their final purchases.
All CAPS staff directly performing purchasing functions have completed the DOA required training. Refresher training opportunities are attended by CAPS staff. This includes scheduled SBOP training, WAPP conferences, occasional training sessions at SAPC meetings and outside career related programs.
We are here to help you and your agency obtain the commodities and services that meet the requirements at a fair and reasonable price, while maintaining compliance to the procurement regulations and guidelines.
