House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: December 16, 2022 08:43 AM
From: Representative Seth M. Grove
To: All House members
Subject: E-Contract Law Update (Former HB 2485)
Our Right-to-Know Law (RTKL) gave the Pennsylvania Treasury Department the duty to operate an online Contracts e-Library and require certain agencies to upload all contracts valued at $5,000 or more.  Unfortunately, compliance is based on the honesty system. 

This proposed legislation requires agencies to provide the Pennsylvania Treasury department with a copy of any contract involving $10,000 or more and requires the agency to provide a summary of the contract. Each agency would be required to attest its compliance, and the Pennsylvania Treasury Department may be empowered to delay or reject requests for payments from non-compliant agencies until the contract is filed with the Treasury Department. This will ensure 100% compliance.

I hope you will join me in this important legislation to increase public transparency in the Commonwealth.

Introduced as HB885
