Public procurement preference margin

On May 16, 2011 the governor of Indiana signed into law a bill (HB1183) establishing price preferences for local providers in government. The new law provides an additional preference for purchases made by a state agency for supplies manufactured, assembled, grown, or produced by an Indiana business in Indiana; deletes a provision specifying that the Indiana price preferences are ignored in certain circumstances if an offeror is from a state bordering Indiana; requires the commission on military and veterans'' affairs to study veterans'' procurement preferences; and provides a price preference to local Indiana businesses bidding on purchasing and public works contracts awarded by political subdivisions.
