The Office of Contractual Review (OCR) is a section within the Division of Administration, charged by law with adopting rules and regulations for the procurement, management, control and disposition of all professional, personal, consulting, and social services contracts required by state agencies.

The Office of Contractual Review decides all matters of policy relative to professional, personal, consulting, and social services contracts.

The contracts received at OCR are reviewed for appropriateness of contract terms and language, signature authorities, evidence of funding and compliance with applicable laws, regulations, executive orders and policies. OCR also reviews agencies' procurement processes against competitive solicitation requirements of law.

The review process also ensures that a central record of all such agreements is maintained and that comparative statistics in the number and kinds of services needed can be developed for planning and reporting purposes.

The Louisiana Revised Statutes Title 39:1481-1526 directly address the laws governing Professional, Personal, Consulting, and Social Services Contracts. The official rules and regulations of the Office of Contractual Review appear in Title 34, Part V of the Louisiana Administrative Code.
