A.O. 3-39 Proposed Modifications - Professional Services Task Force
In 2016, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Resolution No. R-414-16, creating the Professional Services Task Force in order to:
  • Offer recommendations for improvement of existing legislation to achieve a more equitable distribution of County contracts, all consistent with the intent and the requirements of the Consultants’ Competitive Negotiation Act (CCNA).
  • Evaluate the existing local preference and the possibility of creating a locally headquartered preference for professional firms, defining the thresholds and other parameters of such proposed enactments.
  • Evaluate the efficacy of the County’s local preference program.
  • Make recommendations concerning alternative methods of identifying local businesses.
  • Consider and evaluate comparable models for the procurement and contracting of professional services. 
Prior to presenting the Task Force report to the Board, Industry is invited to provide feedback on the findings and recommendations of the Task Force, please see draft documents provided below:
