DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL


State contracting practices. Requires the governor's commission on minority business development to adopt as a goal that 12% of contracts awarded by state agencies, bodies corporate and politic, and state educational institutions be awarded to minority business enterprises and that 7% of contracts awarded by state agencies, bodies corporate and politic, and state educational institutions be awarded to women's business enterprises. (Under current law the commission is required to adopt as a goal that 5% of state contracts be awarded to minority business enterprises.) Requires the Indiana department of administration to conduct a biennial study to determine whether during the previously concluded two year period the goals have been met. Requires the department to adopt rules to require that not fewer than 12% of contracts be awarded to minority business enterprises and not fewer than 7% of contracts be awarded to women's business enterprises if the goals have not been met. Requires the department to determine in the first study whether minority business enterprises and women's business enterprises historically have been excluded from the award of contracts.
