Legislation important to many architectural firms will be heard by the California State Assembly very soon, and your help is needed to secure the votes for it to pass.
AB 626 changes California’s conflict of interest laws to clearly state that a firm can provide pre-design services to a public entity and still be eligible to compete for design services.
A recent court ruling created a “conflict of interest” that can prohibit a firm that provided pre-design services (e.g. feasibility study, master plan) from being eligible to compete to design any project that results from the pre-design contract.
AB 626 fixes this problem. It removes that “conflict of interest” and gives public entities and design professionals greater flexibility when it comes to the offering of design professional services.
