Current Bill Summary

SB 987 - Under current law, contracts for purchasing supplies that do not exceed the cost threshold for competitive bids may not prevent an instrumentality of the state or any political subdivision from purchasing supplies from an authorized General Services Administration vendor. This act modifies that so that it applies to all such contracts, regardless of whether it exceeds the threshold or not.

This act is substantially similar to a provision in SS/SCS/HCS/HB 2140 (2018).
