Georgia bill streamlining certification for MWVBEs signed into law

GA News - Published Apr 25, 2023

House Bill 128 for the State of Georgia has been signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp. The bill streamlines the certification process for minority-, women-, and veteran-owned businesses (MWVBEs).

The bill amends current law, under which DAS oversaw minority business certification particularly, to create a general class of "classified subcontractors," referring for the definition of this term to law established for Department of Administrative Services (DAS) certifications and expanding it to include women-owned and veteran-owned businesses, in order to clear up redundancy in the law. The bill also gives DAS the authority to accept certifications from other certifying entities.
