OSA contract approval is a yearly requirement for all agencies across New Mexico who receive and expend public money and that fall under the State Audit Act of New Mexico. However, this is not to be confused with a procurement requiring an annual RFP. The agencies obtain contract services through small purchase bid or sealed request for proposal process and contract on a yearly basis for a full financial compliance audit, agreed-upon procedure or a certification for local public bodies (revenue based).
The OSA-Connect Online Portal is for contracting and communicating with the Office of the State Auditor (OSA). The OSA-Connect portal was created to easily contract for yearly financial compliance audits, agreed-upon procedures (AUP), tier certification compliance and keeping contact information up to date.
