AGO Opinions with Topic: COMPETITIVE BIDDING
AGO 1984 No. 17 >  July 31, 1984
PUBLIC WORKS - CONTRACTS - COMPETITIVE BIDDING
CONTRACT FOR CONSTRUCTION OF WASHINGTON STATE CONVENTION AND TRADE CENTER Under chapter 39.04 RCW, and consistent with public policy as expressed in judicial decisions regarding public works contracts, the concept of competitive bidding is applicable with regard to the awarding of a construction management contract by the Washington State Convention and Trade Center insofar as that contract would cover the construction phase of the Convention and Trade Center project.
AGO 1987 No. 16 >  May 7, 1987
TRANSPORTATION DEPARTMENT - UNFAIR COMPETITION - COMPETITIVE BIDDING
AUTHORITY TO REQUIRE CONCRETE PRODUCTS BE MANUFACTURED IN UNITED STATES The Department of Transportation does not have the statutory authority to require precast/prestressed concrete products to be manufactured in the United States for the purpose of protecting local industries from unfair competition by foreign manufacturers.
AGO 1996 No. 18 >  November 26, 1996
WASHINGTON STATE CONVENTION AND TRADE CENTER - STATE AGENCIES - PUBLIC WORKS AND IMPROVEMENTS - CONTRACTS - COMPETITIVE BIDDING
Authority of state agency to vary from bidding procedure Where the Legislature has authorized expansion of the Washington State Convention and Trade Center but has conditioned funding upon the receipt of contributions from a public or private co-developer, and has imposed further conditions which render it economically impracticable to call for public bids on those portions of the expansion project which will be "jointly" used by the co-developers, and the Convention and Trade Center will call for public bids on those portions of the project that are intended for its use as a state instrumentality, the public works laws are sufficiently flexible to allow the "joint" portions of the construction project to be designed and built by the co-developer without call for public bids.
