CO Rev Stat ยง 24-102-206 (2016) What's This?

(1) (a) Prior to contracting or as a requirement for the solicitation of any contract from the state for services, as appropriate, any prospective vendor shall disclose in a written statement of work whether it anticipates subcontracting any services under the contract, where such subcontracted services will be performed under the contract, including any subcontracts, and whether any subcontracted services under the contract or any subcontracts are anticipated to be performed outside the United States or the state. If the prospective vendor anticipates services under the contract or any subcontracts will be performed outside the United States or the state, the vendor shall provide in its written statement of work a provision setting forth why it is necessary or advantageous to go outside the United States or the state to perform the contract or any subcontracts.

(b) Each contract entered into or renewed by a governmental body pursuant to this code must contain a clause that requires the vendor to provide written notice to the governmental body if the vendor decides, after the contract is awarded, to perform services under the contract outside the United States or the state or to subcontract services under the contract to a subcontractor that will perform such services outside the United States or the state. The contract must specify that the vendor is required to provide such written notice no later than twenty days from the time the vendor decides to perform services under the contract outside the United States or the state or subcontracts services under the contract to a subcontractor that will perform such services in a location outside the United States or the state.

(2) The written notification required by paragraphs (a) and (b) of subsection (1) of this section must include, but need not be limited to, a statement of the type of services that will be performed at a location outside the United States or the state and the reason why it is necessary or advantageous to go outside the United States or the state to perform such services.

(3) A governmental body shall provide written notice to the department of personnel if it awards a contract to a vendor that has provided written notice pursuant to paragraph (a) or (b) of subsection (1) of this section that the vendor or the vendor's subcontractor will perform services under the contract outside the United States or the state.

(4) If a vendor knowingly fails to notify the governmental body of any outsourced services as specified in this section, the governmental body may, in the governmental body's discretion, terminate the contract.

(5) The executive director shall post any notice that a vendor provides to a governmental body pursuant to this section on the official website of the department.

(6) Nothing in this section shall be construed to apply to any contract to which the state is a party under medicare, the "Colorado Medical Assistance Act", articles 4 to 6 of title 25.5, C.R.S., the "Children's Basic Health Plan Act", article 8 of title 25.5, C.R.S., or the "Colorado Indigent Care Program", part 1 of article 3 of title 25.5, C.R.S.

(7) Nothing in this section applies to any project that receives federal moneys. In addition, nothing in this section contravenes any existing treaty, law, agreement, or regulation of the United States. Contracts entered into in accordance with any treaty, law, agreement, or regulation of the United States do not violate this section to the extent of that accordance. The requirements of this section are suspended if such requirements would contravene any treaty, law, agreement, or regulation of the United States, or would cause denial of federal moneys or preclude the ability to access federal moneys that would otherwise be available.
