SCAGPO is collaborating with the Office of State Procurement to present the following course:


FOIA Overview for SC Procurement - MMO - 1 day

This day long course will cover the information previously offered in MMO-6 and MMO-7.

Evaluation panels often qualify as public bodies - which are subject to FOIA's rules regarding public meetings. (In the 2001 opinion of Quality Towing, Inc. v. City of Myrtle Beach, the South Carolina Supreme Court concluded that an evaluation panel created by the Myrtle Beach's City Manager was a public body.) This course is designed to help you conduct a competitive sealed proposal, including the evaluation process, in compliance with FOIA's meeting rules. 

Requests for procurement documents are routine. Vendors frequently object to the release of proprietary information. Government officials are governed by the Freedom of Information Act, Procurement Code, and Trade Secrets Act.

The course will be taught by Dixon Robertson of the State Fiscal Accountability Authority; and participants may use this attendance to meet the requirement for SC State Level II Certification.  Members are encouraged to share this opportunity with their entity's FOIA Officer.

Space is limited.  Please register early.
