New law may require you to update responsible bidder forms

SB 5301, Sen. Miloscia (R-Federal Way), amends the state’s responsible bidder criteria. Effective July 23, 2017, bidders are now required to submit a signed statement verifying, under penalty of perjury, that they comply with the new responsible bidder criteria requirement for the state’s wage laws.

Under the new law, local governments and other agencies must consider whether a final and binding citation and notice of assessment has been issued by the Department of Labor and Industries or through a civil judgement that the bidder willfully violated any provision of the state’s wage laws in three years before the date of the bid solicitation.

You may include this form in your bid documents. MRSC has developed a sample form you an access here.
