Competitive Solicitation Under Procurement Code

Concerning allowing a state agency to use any appropriate method of competitive solicitation pursuant to the state "Procurement Code" when a law directs the state agency to issue a request for proposals.
2020 Regular Session
State Government
Bill Summary

A request for proposals (RFP) is one of many types of competitive solicitation methods that a state agency is authorized to use pursuant to the state "Procurement Code" (Code). Legislation enacted by the general assembly often directs a state agency to issue an RFP for a project rather than generally requiring the state agency to use a method of competitive solicitation authorized by the Code.

The bill specifies that when a law requires a state agency to issue an RFP pursuant to the Code, the law will be construed to require a competitive solicitation pursuant to the Code, as deemed most appropriate and efficient for the project by the state agency, rather than only an RFP.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
