Open Government Advocacy Project:
Do public contracts need to include a maximum amount?
 

Issue Detail:

 
April 9, 2013 Thomas H. Neff, Chair Local Finance Board 101 S Broad St PO Box 803 Trenton, NJ 08625-0803 Tom.Neff@dca.state.nj.us RE: Contracts lacking a \"not to exceed\" amount. Dear Mr. Neff: A colleague of mine, by way of an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request, obtained copies of the Pollution Control Financing Authority of Warren County\'s contract for legal services with Governor Florio\'s present law firm, Florio, Perrucci, Steinhardt & Felder, LLC. Copies of the contract and the December 19, 2012 resolution that awarded it are on-line here. The contract calls for the Florio law firm to bill the Authority at $150 per hour. But, neither the contract nor the authorizing resolution places any \"not to exceed\" limitation on the amount that can be paid out under the contract during the annual term. Does the Local Public Contracts Law permit public bodies to enter into contracts with no predetermined maximum amount? Please advise. John Paff, Chairman New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project P.O. Box 5424 Somerset, NJ 08875 Voice: 732-873-1251 Fax: 908-325-0129 e-mail: paff@pobox.com
