Bill to allow cities to utilize unit-priced contracts up for public hearing

A city-supported bill, SB 6143, Sen. Dean Takko (D-Kelso), has been scheduled for public hearing in the Senate Local Government Committee on Tuesday, January 16 at 1:30 pm. SB 6143 would clearly authorize cities to use unit-price contracting.

As spelled out in the bill a unit-priced contract is “a competitively bid contract in which public works are anticipated on a recurring basis to meet the business or operational needs of a city, under which the contractor agrees to a fixed period, indefinite quantity delivery of work, at a defined unit price, for each category of work.”
