This legislation requires consultants who help draft local governments' bid, proposal, procurement or purchasing specifications to disclose and detail whether they or their family have any possible conflicts of interest or financial interest with a firm who may respond to the bid/proposal.  There are exceptions for confidential economic development activities and economic development authorities, and while attorneys must disclose the existence of a conflict, they do not have to provide details.

General County Government Procurement Todd Edwards

Following up on last session's HB 489, this bill makes changes to local requirements on posting bids and proposals on the Georgia Procurement Registry (GPR).  Under current law, if a local government extends a bid or proposal for goods or services valued at over $10,000, they must also advertise them on the GPR.  This bill increases that monetary threshold to only goods or services valued at over $100,000.  In return, however, locals must advertise the bid/proposal on the GPR for the same period of time “as set by ordinance or practice” of the local government.       

Green background on status indicates a bill has been acted on the last recorded legislative day.
