Yesterday Governor Murphy signed into law the Electronic Procurement Act. P.L. 2020, c. 59 permits local governments to use an electronic construction procurement process for public works construction contracts. Rulemaking authority has been given to the Division of Local Government Services to develop the process to be used for electronic construction procurement.
The law mandates that the State use electronic procurement process for public works construction contracts when the project requires public advertisement. The new law will take effect on March 1, 2021.
