SECTION 1. Section 44D of Chapter 149 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2006 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out subsection (7) and inserting in place thereof the following subsection:—
(7) The division of capital asset management and maintenance shall develop a standard contractor evaluation form that shall be completed by every public agency, upon completion of a building project under its control, and submitted to said division for the contractor’s qualification file. The standard contractor evaluation form shall be completed by the public agency and submitted to said division prior to the issuance of any certificate permitting
occupancy of any said building. The public agency official, or the architect or engineer responsible for the oversight of the building construction contract, shall certify that the information contained
on the contractor evaluation form represents, to the best of his knowledge, a true analysis of the contractor’s performance record on that contract. The public agency shall mail a copy of the contractor evaluation form to the contractor and the contractor may within thirty days, submit a written response to said division disputing
any information contained within the evaluation form. No public employee or public employer as defined in section two of chapter two hundred fifty-eight, and no architect or engineer shall be personally liable for any injury or loss to any contractor as a result of the completion of a contractor evaluation form as required by this section unless the individual completing such evaluation form acted in a grossly negligent or malicious manner.
In determining which is the most advantageous offer, the awarding authority shall consider the information submitted by the offerors on the update statement.
