Pay-to-Play Reform at Top of Christie Administration's 2011 Best Practices Checklist for Municipalities
The adoption of a stringent pay-to-play ordinance is at the top of the Christie Administration’s 2011 Best Practices Checklist. A copy of the checklist can be found here. The best practices check list is designed to provide standards by which local government officials can perform an assessment of municipal operations. In order to receive 100% percent of permissible state aid, a municipality needs to satisfy certain criteria, including the adoption of a local pay-to-play ordinance. As these ordinances begin to take effect, government contractors should take steps to ensure that they are in full compliance with varying local pay-to-play restrictions.
