SB22-112 - Postponed Indefinitely

Senator Kirkmeyer, bill sponsor, presented Senate Bill 22-112.

The bill replaces these requirements, specifying that an emergency procurement requires three informal bids, and for an emergency procurement that exceeds $150,000, the contract file must include specific written information.
