Small Business Procurement and Contract Act: eligibility.

Abstract

Existing law, the Small Business Procurement and Contract Act, requires state agencies to take certain actions in order to facilitate the participation of small businesses and microbusinesses in the provision of goods, information technology, and services to the state, and in the construction of state facilities. Existing law gives the Department of General Services sole responsibility for certifying and determining the eligibility of small businesses and microbusinesses under the act. Existing law requires the department to require an applicant or certified firm to submit a written declaration, under penalty of perjury, that information submitted to the department is true and correct, as specified. Existing federal law provides that certain aliens are not eligible for any state or local public benefit, except as provided. Existing federal law authorizes a state to provide that an alien who is not lawfully present in the United States is eligible for a state or local public benefit for which the alien would otherwise be ineligible under these provisions only through the enactment of a state law after August 22, 1996, which affirmatively provides for that eligibility. This bill would specify that the act is a state law that provides assistance and services for persons regardless of immigration status within the meaning of the federal law described above. By expanding the scope of the crime of perjury, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement. This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
