LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 639, as introduced, Obernolte. Department of General Services: contracts: electronic submission
Existing law establishes the Department of General Services to provide centralized services including, but not limited to, planning, acquisition, construction, and maintenance of state buildings and property; purchasing; printing; architectural services; administrative hearings; government claims; and accounting services. The State Contract Act generally requires that projects be under the charge and control of the Department of General Services, except for projects under the jurisdiction of other specified departments.
This bill would require the department to develop procedures authorizing the submittal of electronic signatures and documents by all parties on contracts that are covered by the State Contracting Manual.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

14609.
 The department shall develop procedures authorizing the submittal of electronic signatures and documents by all parties on contracts that are covered by the State Contracting Manual.
