ANNOUNCEMENT 13 Jun 2017
The law provides a 5% preference to in-state providers.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On June 13, 2017 the governor of Nevada signed into law a bill (AB280) that creates a preference of 5% for a bid or proposal for a state purchasing contract that is submitted by a Nevada-based business. To qualify for this preference, a business must certify that: (1) its principal place of business is in Nevada; or (2) a majority of the goods provided for in a state purchasing contract are produced in Nevada. The law prohibits granting the preference for the award of any contract which uses federal money, unless such a preference is authorized by federal law or any contract which has been procured on a multistate basis.
