Small Procurement Bill Introduced in Alaska
Representative Anna Fairclough introduced a bill concerning small procurements with the state, which includes the requirement of vendors to provide proof of an Alaska business license.
House Bill 204 also contains other mandates for vendors, including the registration of construction contract bidders and offerers, the establishment and maintenance of lists of person who want to contract with the state or state agencies, and small procurement provisions for certain amounts of leased space.
The legislation increases the maximum ceiling amounts of what constitutes a small procurement from $50,000 to $100,000 for supplies, services, or professional services; $100,000 to $200,000 for a construction, and from 3000 to 7000 square feet for a lease.
