Description

Virginia Public Procurement Act; exempt counties, cities, school boards, and towns with populations greater than 3,500; competitive negotiation for professional services. Requires all counties, cities, and school divisions, and all towns having a population greater than 3,500, in the Commonwealth that are exempt from the provisions of the Virginia Public Procurement Act (the Act) because they have adopted alternative policies and procedures as permitted by law to procure professional services through competitive negotiation as set forth in the Act when the cost of the professional service is expected to exceed $80,000 in the aggregate or for the sum of all phases of a contract or project. Under current law, such counties, cities, and school divisions, and all towns having a population greater than 3,500, are required to procure professional services through competitive negotiation as set forth in the Act when the cost of the professional service is expected to exceed $60,000 in the aggregate or for the sum of all phases of a contract or project. Amends § 2.2-4343, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
