Qualifications-Based Selection of Engineering Services: State List
Legislative/Regulatory Issue: Legislative
This bill establishes a pilot program to allow the Counties of Alameda, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Solano, and Yuba to select a bidder on the basis of best value, as defined, for construction projects in excess of $1,000,000. The bill also establishes procedures and criteria for the selection of a best value contractor. It requires that bidders verify specified information under oath, thereby imposing a state-mandated local program by creating a new crime. The bill also requires the board of supervisors of a participating county, before January 1, 2020, to submit a report to specified legislative committees. The bill would repeal the pilot program provisions on January 1, 2020.
