A.7092 (John)



Criteria for Personal Service Contracts



May 20, 2007


The Business Council opposes this bill that would impose additional criteria on state agencies seeking to enter into contracts with private sector businesses for the performance of “personal services.” Importantly, this legislation would preclude a state agency from entering into a personal service contract with a private entity unless one of the specific listed criteria is met.

The Business Council has several concerns regarding this legislation:

Given the existing requirements for the review and approval of state contracts, we see no compelling need for these additional restrictions. Therefore, for the reasons discussed above, The Business Council opposes approval of A.7092.
