DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Term of state contracts. Provides that a contract for services entered into by a state agency: (1) may not be for a period of more than four years unless a statute specifically provides otherwise; and (2) may not be renewed. Provides that, after the term of a contract for services, a new contract for the same services may be awarded to the same contractor that provided the services under the original contract only if there is a new solicitation. Provides that the statute authorizing public-private agreements does not apply to services unless the contract is a "BOT" agreement or an "operating agreement" (as both terms are defined in the public-private agreement statute).
