Existing law authorizes contracting between state agencies and private contractors and sets forth requirements for the procurement of goods and services by state agencies and the various responsibilities of state agencies and the Department of General Services in implementing state contracting procedures and policies. Existing law prohibits a scrutinized company, as defined, that is involved in specified activities in Sudan, from entering into a contract with a state agency for goods or services, subject to specified requirements and exemptions. This bill would prohibit a scrutinized company, as defined, that was engaged in business with perpetrators of genocide, from entering into a contract with a state agency for goods or services.
