§ 37-2-9.1. Bidder registration fee.
The chief purchasing officer may adopt regulations to establish an annual fee, of not less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00), which shall be paid by all potential bidders requesting to subscribe to solicitation mailings for public bids for specific types of supplies, services, and construction during a fiscal year, and may waive that fee for Rhode Island firms. Additionally, the chief purchasing agent officer may delegate to the purchasing agent the authority to waive that fee for an individual solicitation and to include unregistered bidders in the solicitation in the interest of expanding competition. Nothing herein shall prevent any interested party from submitting a bid in response to any solicitation of which they become aware.
