ABA Section of Public Contract Law

Section of Public Contract Law:
STATE AND LOCAL MODEL PROCUREMENT CODE

Mission

Focuses on two fundamental tasks: (1) encouraging adoption of the ABA 2000 Model Procurement Code and the 2002 Model Procurement Regulations by state and local governments; and (2) identifying areas for code coverage and assisting in the drafting of revisions to the Model Procurement Code.

These principles have been adopted by 17 states and many hundreds of local jurisdictions, and are designed to provide public officials, vendors and contractors, and taxpayers with procurement processes with integrity and value for money.

The Section of Public Contract Law and the Section of State and Local Government Law have also adopted the 2007 Model Code for Public Infrastructure Procurement (the 2007) MC PIP, which is a condensation of the ABA 2000 Model Procurement Code for State and Local Governments. Through both publications, the Committee seeks to foster consideration and adoption of these principles across the United States.

More About Us

The 2000 Model Procurement Code addresses the full range of issues arising in the procurement of supplies, services, and construction, including emerging models for long term procurement of so-called "Public Private Partnerships".

To specifically address the procurement and policy issues that arise when design, construction, operations, maintenance, and/or finance are merged into single procurements for public infrastructure, the Sections sponsoring the MPC project approved the 2007 Model Code for Public Infrastructure Procurement (MC PIP), which is a condensation of the 2000 Model Procurement Code.
