H.F. No. 1975 - Municipal contracting: water tank service contract modifications (First Unofficial Engrossment)
Author: Senator Mark W. Koran
Prepared By: Priyanka Premo, Senate Counsel (651/296-3914)
Date: May 1, 2018


H.F. 1975 amends the Uniform Municipal Contracting Law provision relating to multiyear water tank service contracts.

Requires a municipality to solicit sealed bids or use the best value alternative procurement method if: (1) the contract is for “supplies, materials, equipment or the rental thereof, or the construction, alteration, repair or maintenance of real or personal property,” and (2) the estimated cost meets the contract price requirements specified in the relevant statutes.

Contracts for professional services and contracts under that amount may use direct negotiation or solicit requests for proposals as under current law.

Effective for contracts entered into on or after September 1, 2018.
