The Task Force to Study Efficiency in Procurement formed in August 2003 (Chapter 386, Acts of 2003). The Task Force charge was to study ways to make State procurement processes more efficient. It considered market-based procurement practices; outsourcing and privatization; the use of contracts when compensation is tied to performance; accountability for State violators of procurement law; and incentives for State officials who achieve better procurement results, including more procurement of environmentally preferable products. Also considered were centralizing the procurement process; whether uniform application of the procurement law to all units of State government is feasible; and how effective the dispute resolution process is. Finally, the Task Force examined the State's policy and practices for procuring information management systems and other technology and technology-related services.
On December 31, 2003, the Task Force submitted its report to the Governor and General Assembly.
