Legal Aspects of Airport Programs. Topic 04-07. Airport Contracting Survey of Federal and State Standards

The objective of this research is to produce an easy-to-use compendium of procurement requirements applicable to airport contracting. The compendium should address contracts receiving financial support through Airport Improvement Program (AIP) as well as the America Relief and Recovery Act (ARRA) and state procurement requirements that would apply whether or not federal funds are involved. The report should also discuss procurement requirements when a state is acting as a "pass-through" for federal funds, i.e. when an airport is a sub-grantee of a state agency receiving a federal grant. The report should address the relationship (or hierarchy) of federal, state, and local procurement requirements in the case of federally funded contracts and the relationship (or hierarchy) between state and local procurement requirements for contracts without federal funds. The resulting research report should include summaries of federal and state requirements (for each state), statutory or regulatory citations, and web links to the cited statutes or regulations. Leading cases (judicial and administrative decisions)--to the extent available--interpreting the provisions should also be included. The research report should also distinguish between procurement for construction contracts, equipment purchases and professional services. Discussion of local procurement requirements would be limited to the issue of the relationship between such requirements and state and local requirements.
