Ensuring Competitive Bidding

Messrs. Tarr and Montigny moved that the bill be amended in section 2A by inserting after the word “project” in line 66 the following:-

“; provided further, that any contract for the procurement of supplies, services or real property paid for in whole or in part using these funds shall comply with the competitive bidding requirements established in section 22 of chapter 7 of the general laws and accompanying regulations, notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, including but not limited to any law or regulation permitting the award of contracts without competition in cases of emergency.”
