No matter your role in the public construction industry in Louisiana, knowing the Louisiana Public Bid Law (R.S. 38:2211-2296) is critical to successfully delivering public construction projects. Owners, architect-engineers, contractors, CM/PMs, testing labs, and others working with public clients must stay current on the changes in the Public Bid Law each year and must also understand how these changes affect their projects and clients.

This meeting will provide you with an understanding of the recent changes and developments in the Public Bid Law resulting from this year’s Legislative Session. You will also learn how these updates have been upheld in recent case law as well as opinions from the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about these important updates straight from the Attorney General’s Office!
