SUBSTITUTE - Amending Section 4.25(2) of the Madison General Ordinances to increase the threshold for the City’s sweatfree procurement requirements for items of apparel from $5,000 to $15,000, and amending Section 4.25(9)(b) of the Madison General Ordinances to change the description of the UW organization that recommends a member to the Committee on Sweatfree Purchases.
Body
DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS: This ordinance raises the current threshold for the City’s sweatfree procurement requirements from $5,000 to $15,000. Sweatfree procurement is required when the City purchases $15,000 or more of a specific item (shirts, shoes, etc.) from a single contractor or $15,000 or more in apparel of the same brand name from a single contractor. The requirements also apply to recipients of City financial assistance if $15,000 or more will be used to purchase apparel. This ordinance also broadens the description of the University of Wisconsin-Madison organization that recommends a student member to the Committee on Sweatfree Purchases to allow for flexibility when the UW-designated organization changes or no longer exists.

This substitute changes the new threshold for sweatfree procurement requirements to $15,000 instead of $10,000.
