Florida Statutes on Procurement for Local Governments

Often times, local government procurement professionals utilize the Florida Statutes as a source of reference and guidance to perform their day to day responsibilities. Not all state statutes apply to local governments.  So, how does the procurement official know which Statutes apply to their particular type of entity?  Local governments are referenced in the statutes under various definitions to include: political subdivision, eligible user, agency, public entity, educational units, governmental units, etc., etc., etc.   This session will review the various definitions for local governments, and review many of the Florida State Statutes that apply to local procurement functions.
