Contracting with a municipality - Limit on Term before Bid

4 posts in this topic

In the state of South Carolina what is the maximum length of time a municipality may maintain/renew their service agreement/contract with a specific vendor without going to bid. The service type in question is the collection of Solid Waste.

The scenario in question would be an agreement to be the exclusive provider of residential curbside collection for the entire municipality in five (5) year terms, with mutually agreeable renewals of one (1) or more years.

Would there be a difference if the agreement/contract was written as a franchise agreement or an exclusive service agreement. Additionally, would there be a difference in law if the agreement was between a City and a private company or County and private company?

If you are in the solid waste collection business or going into the solid waste collection business, one would have to be a fool not to have a lawyer on retainer to answer your questions and guide you through the business processes rather relying on strangers on the internet.

Your question involves a very esoteric issue of state and local law and isn't well-suited for an Internet message board. We can provide general information about laws that are roughly uniform throughout the U.S., but this is something only someone familiar with the unique state and local law or someone who is in a position to research the issue is likely to be able to answer.
