SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 94

(By Senators Beach and Klempa)

 

 

 

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the use of private contractors who perform work for the State of West Virginia.

    Whereas, The use of private contractors who perform work in the State of West Virginia is an important issue because the State of West Virginia is increasingly using private contractors on state projects that employ citizens of other countries who may be located within or outside of the United States of America; and

    Whereas, The procurement of goods manufactured in the United States, and West Virginia in particular, and of services performed in the United States, and West Virginia in particular, would likely benefit West Virginia by allowing increased oversight over such goods and services and by providing employment opportunities to West Virginians; and

    Whereas, West Virginia does not collect information on its use of private contractors, including the cost, quality of product, citizenship and residency of its workers, and salaries and benefits provided to its workers, that is accessible to the public; and

    Whereas, It is unclear if it is in the best interest of the State of West Virginia to use certain private contractors and out-source work when looking at overall cost-effectiveness, economic impact on West Virginia workers, security issues, and quality of work; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Legislature hereby requests the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the use of private contractors who perform work for the State of West Virginia; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the use of private contractors who perform work for the State of West Virginia, including which agencies or entities of state government use private contractors, the identity of the private contractors, the type of work they perform, the cost and length of their contracts, how many workers they employ to perform the work, how many of the workers are citizens of the State of West Virginia and the United States of America, the quality of the work and products of such private contractors and the wages and benefits of the workers employed by the private contractors; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
