Comment-Question: The Burlington County Bridge Commission has entered into an agreement to share services from a pooled list of professionals awarded through the County of Burlington.  The Commission has several jobs it would like to request proposals from the pooled list of professionals for.
Is there a time frame between the time requesting the proposal to the submission date?  I am being told by our solicitor that awarding a contract through the County's pooled list of professionals is not competitive contracting and the competitive contracting statutes do not apply.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
