AN ACT PROVIDING THAT POLITICAL SUBDIVISIONS OF THE STATE SHALL NOTIFY PERSONS OR BUSINESSES WITHIN THEIR JURISDICTIONAL LIMITS BY REGULAR OR ELECTRONIC MAIL OF WORK REQUIRING AN ESTIMATED EXPENDITURE OF $50,000 OR MORE BEING LET FOR BID BY THE POLITICAL SUBDIVISION.
Senate committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Deletes the proposed changes to GS 143-129(b), regarding including notices to local persons and businesses in the procedure for letting of public contracts. Instead, enacts new subsection (b1) requiring proposals to be invited by regular mail or email notification to persons or businesses located within the respective jurisdictional boundaries of the political subdivision inviting proposals, if the person or business requested notices of work being bid, in addition to any other notice or publication required by law, if the contract to be let is for either construction or repair work, or the purchase of apparatus, supplies, materials, or equipment, which require the estimated expenditures of public money in an amount equal to or exceeding $50,000. Requires the notice to be sent to the mail or email address provided to the political subdivision for this purpose at least seven full days before the opening of bids. Requires the notices to contain the same information required of other public contract advertisements set out in subsection (b). Maintains the act's effective date of October 1, 2021.
