Red Tape looks at bidding laws
July 12th, 2012
The state’s procurement process and the rules governing the way public contracts are bid will be the subject of next week’s Red Tape Review Commission hearing at The College of New Jersey in Ewing on Tuesday.
CIANJ President John Galandak, a commission member, encourages anyone with suggestions on how to streamline these state processes to testify at the hearing. The session will convene at 4:30 p.m. at the college library, located at 2000 Pennington Road, Ewing, and conclude at 7:30 p.m.
Bidding laws are the latest issues being tackled by the Red Tape commission, which was created by Gov. Chris Christie to eliminate antiquated and overly burdensome regulations that impede healthy and effective business growth.
Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno chairs the Red Tape commission, which has been the impetus for a series of regulatory reforms. State assemblymen and senators, who serve on the commission, often use the information they learned to draft legislation. Some of the initiatives that arose from the commission’s work include updates to the law concerning limited liability corporations and greater flexibility in revising regulations.
