SENATE EDUCATION COMMITTEE
SENATE, No. 2712
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: JANUARY 29, 2015
The Senate Education Committee favorably reports Senate Bill No. 2712.
This bill imposes new reporting requirements on school business administrators in order to ensure that the school district is in compliance with all federal and State laws, rules, and regulations relating to district contracts. The bill directs the school business administrator to submit a written report to the board of education on school district contracts by July 1 of each school year. Under the bill, the report must include: a list of all district contracts that will be awarded, subject to renewal, or expire during the school year; and an explanation of all applicable federal and State laws, rules, and regulations relating to those contracts. The bill also provides that prior to the execution, extension, or renewal of a school district contract that was not included in the report, the school business administrator must notify the board of all applicable federal and State laws, rules, and regulations relating to the contract.
As reported by the committee this bill is identical to Assembly Bill No. 1499 (1R), which was reported by the committee on this same date.
