ASA Unveils Model State Legislation to Address Growing Payment Assurance Problem on P3 Projects

ASA Hails Proposed Legislation Targeting Construction ‘Bid Shopping’

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — ASA hailed legislation introduced by Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., on May 9, 2013, as a significant step to improve the management of the federal government’s construction projects.

By requiring contractors to use the subcontractors identified in the contractors’ bids, the Construction Quality Assurance Act of 2013 (H.R. 1942) would promote open competition among subcontractors and ethical bidding practices and ensure that the highest quality subcontractors bid and work on projects paid for with federal taxpayer dollars.

“As the federal government continues to tighten its belt, taxpayers deserve to get absolutely the best construction projects for their tax dollars,” said ASA Chief Advocacy Officer E. Colette Nelson. “Under the current acquisition system, federal contracting officers must accept prime contractor bids without any assurance of which subcontractors will actually perform the work. This lack of oversight diminishes the quality of and threatens the security of federal construction. Taxpayers deserve better, and mandatory bid listing is the responsible solution.”
