American Subcontractors Association Pushes Federal Contracting Revisions

            ASA is soliciting its members to push Illinois Senators Durbin and Kirk to vote in favor of Senate Amendment 1731 to HR 1735, which, if passed, would prohibit use of reverse auctions in solicitations for federal design and construction work, restrict use of individual surety bonds on federal construction projects covered by the Miller Act, increase limits on SBA’s surety bond guaranty program, and institute a two step process for awarding design/build contracts, with the first step focusing solely on qualifications of proposers, followed by a second step based on price.
