TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senators Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) and Linda Greenstein (D-Middlesex/Mercer) to help residents find work by creating a searchable Internet database listing all available government contracts has been signed into law by Governor Chris Christie.
“There are hundreds of public entities in New Jersey with the authority to contract work. But far too often, jobs are advertised in a way that makes them accessible only by those who are in the know,” said Senator Norcross. “By creating an online state database for public contract listings, we will ensure that bidding opportunities are available to all contractors, and that they are all on a level playing field in their quest to find work.”
“Bulletin NJ will serve as a one-stop-shop for contractors looking for work, giving them instant access to all bidding opportunities available at public entities across the state,” said Senator Greenstein. “At a time when so many people are still unemployed, this online tool will ensure that those seeking contracting work have the tools they need to access public contract listings, assess their qualifications and, ultimately, to find a job.”
