Community Rehabilitation Organization Committee

About the Community Rehabilition Organization (CRO) Committee

The Community Rehabilitation Organization (CRO) committee evaluates contract set-aside requests from community rehabilitation organizations. 

The Management and Budget Act (MCL 18.1293-18.1297) establishes the Committee on the Purchase of Goods and Services from Community Rehabilitation Organizations, commonly known as the CRO Committee, that identifies, reviews, and recommends approval of requests from CROs to provide goods and services for purchase by the State of Michigan. The committee also establishes fair market prices for these goods and services.

For more information about the program and how to request a contract be set aside review the CRO Set Aside Operations Manual.

What Are CROs?
