Rep. Carolyn Maloney recently introduced the Construction Quality Assurance Act of 2013, H.R. 1942, which would mandate general contractors’ bid listing of subcontractors for federal projects. Specifically, if enacted, H.R. 1942 would require general contractors who bid directly with federal construction agencies on projects over $1 million to list each subcontractor that will perform over $100,000 of work on their bids.

Mandatory bid listing undermines the government’s attempts to streamline procurement and deliver essential projects in a timely and cost efficient fashion. It would also reduce a general contractor’s flexibility for efficiently bidding and winning a federal project award. The federal government’s own experience shows that bid listing is not a fruitful endeavor, as the General Services Administration abandoned the practice in 1983.
