HB 111 (Albritton) and SB 368 (Brandes) create the Statewide Efficiency Task Force (SETF) for the purpose of evaluating the effectiveness and value of state and local procurement laws and determining where inconsistencies exist. The SETF would be composed of 14 members, including one municipal official appointed by the governor. The SETF must submit a final report to the governor, the president of the Senate, and the speaker of the House by July 1, 2019. The report must include recommendations for creating procurement efficiencies, streamlining procurement policies and other best management practices. (Cook)
