WHAT:    Knowing government spending must always be under scrutiny, the House State Government Committee will take up the following procurement reform bills during its next meeting:

House Bill 709 would require applicants for state contracts to submit a disclosure statement listing all campaign contributions made by the applicant or intermediary to any elected official, candidate for state or local office, or political committee. 
House Bill 1925 would authorize state procurement officials to consider a prospective contractor’s documented performance in other states or with other public entities prior to awarding, renewing or extending a Pennsylvania contract to that bidder.
House Bill 2159 would ensure the emergency procurement process is only used in exigent circumstances.
House Bill 2269 would require state officials to also consider a perspective contractor’s documented prior performance rather than just which bidder submitted the lowest bid. 

WHO:    Committee Chairman Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) will be joined by members of the committee and authors of the bills. 

WHEN:    Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 9 a.m.  

WHERE:   Room 515, Irvis Office Building, Capitol Complex, Harrisburg
