Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 729 - Under this act, Boone and Greene counties are not required to obtain bids on purchases of $6,000 or less. Such amount is set at $4,500 for counties under current law.

Under current law, counties may waive competitive bidding when the County Commission determines that there is only one feasible source for the supply. The commission must post notice for such proposed purchases of at least $3,000 and also advertise in the newspaper for such purchases of at least $5,000.

This act changes the notice and advertising requirements for Boone and Greene counties, so they are only required to advertise and post notice on such proposed purchases when they exceed $6,000.

This act is similar to SB 871 (2010), SB 1254 (2008), certain provisions of SS/SCS/HB 376 (2009), HCS/SB 386 (2009), and SB 256 (2009).
