Procurement of services by certain state agencies. Requires the Division of Purchases and Supply of the Department of General Services, by regulation, to require all state agencies to procure services from the private sector if the services are listed as a commercial activity on the commercial activities list developed by the Commonwealth Competition Council in accordance with 2.2-2622. The bill does not apply to the hiring of law-enforcement personnel. The bill also provides an exception to the requirement that government cease performing services that can be obtained from a commercial source when the state agency, upon a written determination, finds that the procurement of services from a commercial source is either not practicable or fiscally advantageous. The bill also requires that the Commonwealth Competition Council update its commercial activities list every two years. Read the Bill »
