Connecticut Creates New Disclosure Requirements for State Contractors
Connecticut state contractors must now include certain representations in their contracts and bids.
House Bill 6444, a modernization of state services and technology bill, requires ethics compliance, nondiscrimination, and consulting agreement representations to be included in the contract itself, instead of being submitted on a separate certification form.
House Bill 6444 also creates additional disclosure requirements for state contractors and prospective state contractors.
Now, contractors will need to disclose whether they, or any of their principals, made a prohibited donation or any permitted contribution within the past four years to a party committee, an exploratory committee, a candidate for statewide office or the General Assembly, or a political committee authorized to make contributions or expenditures for the benefit of such a candidate.
The bill became effective July 1.
