Questions Asked But Not Yet Answered

midnightThe Library Outsourcing FAQ contains the statement, “This document will be updated weekly as needed.”

Here are three new questions I sent to the FAQ early last week that have not been answered yet:

(1) Can you cite the relevant “governmental procurement procedures” (county? state?) regarding the general publication of bid contents? Are these procedures available online? (i.e., can you give a web citation (URL?) ).

(2) Once the deadline (11/19/09) for the submission of all bids has passed, what — according to the “governmental procurement procedures” — is the reason for continuing to keep the bid contents secret from the general public, since publication then would give no single bidder a competitive advantage?

(3) Is there any legal reason why the Board of Supervisors can’t wait at least 30 days — rather than a mere 3 days — after the bid contents are made public before hearing from the county executive and general public in an open Board session that includes the library outsourcing agenda item?
