Title: Establishes Procedures for Privatization Contracts

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that establishes procedures for privatization contracts, effective 90 days after passage.

Highlights:
  • Prohibits any agency from entering into a “privatization contract” unless certain requirements are met, including, but not limited to, the following (Sec. 3):
    • The agency obtains sealed competitive bids for each privatization contract;
    • The public is not subject to any fees, fares, or other charges greater than those currently charged under every bid for a privatization contract; and
    • The contractor complies with a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity and takes steps to provide that equal opportunity.
  • Defines “agency” as any department, division, board, commission, or other office or officer of the state or of any political subdivision of the state, or any authority or other instrumentality of the state (Sec. 2).
  • Defines “privatization contract” as an agreement or combination of agreements valued at a total of at least $250,000 by which a non-governmental individual or entity agrees with an agency to provide services which are substantially similar to and instead of, services previously provided, in whole or in part, by regular employees of the agency (Sec. 2).
  • Specifies that the provisions of this act do not apply to any privatization contract first entered into before the effective date of this bill (Sec. 6).
