'Call' Contracts Currently in Effect

In January, 2010, the 'Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy' published a report rating Virginia localities on "Government Transparency" (see report here). In part the report read:
Government doesn't do everything it once did. All sorts of functions that used to be governmental are now contracted out to the private sector. Counties need to release that information. Here, we were looking for fairly basic information such as who got contracts, what for and how much (5, half if only one was missed). We also expected contact information on the contractor (3), a threshold of $2,500 for reporting (3) and for information on performances standards (3). This is one area where we wish we had a better handle on what was already being offered. In future transparency analysis we will score localities on having requests for proposals on line and having an easy to use database of contracting so that citizens can see where their money is being spent.
The spreadsheet(s) below are exhibited to meet the declared intent of that report [Revised: Sept., 2011, the files are now in Comma-Separated-Values (CSV) format and should open with most spreadsheet-software (e.g. Microsoft Excel)]**.The files now reflect ALL purchase orders, goods AND services, greater than (GT)$2,500, procured with a purchase order. Requests for additional information on a selected transaction(s) should be submitted as a FOIA request to the Public Information Office. Be sure to include the selected 5-digit 'po_number'.
FY2016 Purchase Orders GT $2500
