LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 630, as amended, Hancock. Public contracts: bidders: cost overruns.
Existing law prohibits a state agency or department, as specified, from awarding a public works or purchase contract to a bidder or contractor who has been convicted in the preceding 5 years of violating a state or federal law respecting the employment of undocumented aliens, and prohibits such bidder or contractor from being eligible to bid for or receive a public works or purchase contract.

This bill would additionally prohibit a state agency or department from awarding a public works or purchase contract to a bidder or contractor without requesting information from the bidder or contractor about cost overruns on previous public works projects or purchase contracts awarded to that bidder or contractor.

This bill would require a bidder or contractor bidding on a state public works contract to include with the bid a report of all cost overruns on public works projects or purchase contracts previously awarded by the state to that bidder or contractor.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
