Procurement of services by certain state agencies. Requires the Director of the Division of Purchases and Supply of the Department of General Services to require each state agency, except law-enforcement agencies, to procure nonprofessional services from the private sector if such services are listed in the Commonwealth Competition Council's commercial activities list. The bill provides that upon a written determination made in advance by a state agency that the procurement of services from a commercial source is neither practicable nor fiscally advantageous, such service may continue to be performed by the state agency. The bill also requires the Commonwealth Competition Council to update its commercial activities list annually rather than every two years. The bill contains technical amendments.
