Description

Virginia Public Procurement Act; construction contracts; requirement to submit list of subcontractors; penalty. Requires all bidders or offerors on contracts for construction of $250,000 or more to submit a list of subcontractors intended to be used and the following: (i) a statement declaring that the bidder or offeror has reviewed the qualifications and performance history of each listed subcontractor and found such qualifications and performance history to be sufficient to qualify the subcontractor to perform the subcontract work and (ii) a statement indicating that the bidder or offeror has received a written statement from each listed subcontractor verifying that such subcontractor (a) has not defaulted on any projects within the last three years, (b) has not been suspended or disbarred by any public body within the last three years, and (c) is not currently in bankruptcy. The bill allows the public body to disqualify any listed subcontractor but requires the public body to notify the bidder or offeror of such disqualification and allow the bidder or offeror reasonable time to find a qualified replacement. The bill provides that any bidder or offeror that does not submit the required list and statements may have its bid or proposal disqualified and that any bidder or offeror that is found to have knowingly provided false information shall be debarred from contracting with any public body for a period of up to one year and is guilty of perjury, a Class 5 felony.
