SUMMARY AS ENACTED WITH GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATION: (all summaries)

Virginia Public Procurement Act; small, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses; enhancement or remedial measures. Requires state contracts awarded pursuant to enhancement or remedial measures implemented to enhance participation by small, women-owned, and minority-owned businesses to include a provision requiring every contractor intending to subcontract work under the contract to include in the proposal a plan to subcontract to small, women-owned, minority-owned, and service disabled veteran-owned businesses. The bill authorizes the Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity (the Department) to investigate complaints that a small, women-owned, or minority-owned business has failed to comply with its subcontracting plan. If the Department determines there was a failure to comply with the subcontracting plan, the business must provide a written explanation.
