Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Procurement of services by certain state agencies. Requires the Division of Purchases and Supply of the Department of General Services, by regulation, to require all state agencies to procure services from the private sector if the services are listed as a commercial activity on the commercial activities list developed by the Commonwealth Competition Council in accordance with 2.2-2622. The bill does not apply to two- and four-year institutions of higher education or the hiring of law-enforcement personnel. The bill also provides an exception to the requirement that government cease performing services that can be obtained from a commercial source where the state agency, upon a written determination, finds that the procurement of services from a commercial source is either not practicable or fiscally advantageous. The bill also requires that beginning July 1, 2005, the Commonwealth Competition Council annually update its commercial activities list.
