Georgia Amends Public Works Advertisement Requirements

For contracting opportunities of public works construction contracts, local governments must advertise and award them on the basis of competitive selection when the offeror (i) is at risk for construction and (ii) will provide labor and building materials.[1]  Except for delivery methods using construction management not-at-risk (or construction management agency), almost all larger public works construction projects will require advertising and competitive selection. Recently, the General Assembly modified the advertisement requirements for local governments. Now contracting opportunities must be publicly advertised (i) conspicuously at the governing authority’s office and (ii) on the Georgia Procurement Registry.[2]
