House Panel Advances AGC Procurement Reform Priorities

May 19, 2016

On May 17, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unanimously approved AGC-supported legislation that would (1) require civilian federal agencies—non-Department of Defense agencies—to utilize the two-step design-build selection process for design-build projects greater than $3 million, thereby limiting one-step design-build procurements; and (2) help prohibit reverse auctions for certain construction services. Introduced by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the bill—H.R. 5199—is nearly identical to the AGC-backed legislation passed by a Senate Committee in February. AGC will continue to push for enactment of these procurement reforms.
