Qualifications-Based Selection of Engineering Services: State List
Legislative/Regulatory Issue: Regulatory
In late 2016, the Alabama State Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors proposed an amendment that would undermine QBS in the state. NSPE and the Alabama Society have reviewed the proposed replacement language and submitted public comment in January 2017 recommending retaining the current requirements for QBS. Read the comment. During the March 23rd Board Meeting, it was ruled by the Board that seeking a price from a single professional is not a violation of Qualification-Based-Selection when the professional has been predetermined to be qualified to provide the services.
