Idaho Overhauls Purchasing Procedures with New Law
Gov. Butch Otter signed a procurement bill into law late last month, overhauling how the state makes purchases.
House Bill 538 repeals existing statutes in favor of a completely new chapter, dubbed the State Procurement Act. The Act requires training for state officers and employees, including ethics training, and modernizes purchasing procedures.
The new law takes effect July 1, 2016.
