The Committee on Community Affairs (Siplin) recommended the

2

following amendment to amendment (084022):

3

4

     Senate Amendment (with title amendment)

5

     On line(s) 7

6

and insert:

7

     Section 1. The Legislature recognizes that equity in

8

contracting is a basic tenet of public procurement; that such

9

equity reduces the appearance and opportunity for favoritism and

10

inspires public confidence that contracts are awarded equitably

11

and economically; and that documentation of the acts taken and

12

effective monitoring mechanisms are important means of curbing

13

any improprieties and establishing public confidence in the

14

process by which services are procured. To promote this basic

15

tenet, the Legislature encourages each county, municipality,

16

special district as defined in chapter 189, or other political

17

subdivisions of the state, to be governed by the provisions of

18

this section, to establish a goal of 20 percent participation by

19

minority business enterprises, as defined in section

20

288.703(2)(a) and (b), Florida Statutes, on all competitively-

21

awarded contracts for public works. The Legislature finds that

22

these minority business enterprises are underrepresented in the

23

award of public procurement contracts.
