2019 Georgia Code
Title 45 - Public Officers and Employees
Chapter 7 - Salaries and Fees
Article 4 - Disclosure of Professional Services Fees
§ 45-7-70. Purpose of article
It is in the best interests of a free society that citizens be fully informed as to the conduct of their government and that those who serve the public by performing services requiring special qualification, training, or knowledge and the exercise of discretion or judgment be known and identified. To ensure that the public may better evaluate the stewardship of elected and appointed officials in the use of public funds for the purchase of professional services from other than full-time employees, it is appropriate that disclosure be made of the use of professional personnel and of the fees and reimbursement paid for such services and incidental expenses.History:
