The second edition of William Sims Curry's first book, Contracting for Services in State and Local Government Agencies, significantly updates contracting best practices. This book is used by state and local government agencies as a reference for upgrading their contracting policies and practices. It is also used as a textbook for MPA courses and for a graduate certificate program in government contracting. A follow-up to the original nationwide best practices research project was the basis for the second edition updates. Fifteen additional best practices are included in the second edition. Corrected formulas were developed by the author to replace present anomalous formulas for weighing proposal evaluation scores used by certain states, large cities, and other local government agencies. The glossary of contracting terms, best practices RFPs & contracts, and other contract management tools are available online for book purchasers.
