SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Virginia Public Procurement Act; statute of limitations on actions on construction contracts; statute of limitations on actions on performance bonds. Provides that unless otherwise specified in the contract, no action may be brought by a public body on any construction contract unless such action is brought within five years after completion of the contract, including the expiration of all warranties and guarantees. The bill also limits the time frame during which a public body, other than the Department of Transportation, may bring an action against a surety on a performance bond to within five years after completion of the contract, including the expiration of all warranties and guarantees. Current law allows a public body, other than the Department of Transportation, to bring such an action within one year after (i) completion of the contract, including the expiration of all warranties and guarantees, or (ii) discovery of the defect or breach of warranty that gave rise to the action.
