Order #26 issued by Governor Christine Todd Whitman in 1994,
bond counsel is solicited pursuant to a set of guidelines, including, but not limited to, a specific set of criteria listed in the Executive Order. A public Request for Proposals (RFP) competitive process must be used for the selection of bond counsel.
The Attorney General selects the bond counsel after reviewing RFP responses.
The Executive Order also allows for the establishment of prequalified “pools” of bond counsels that can be selected for two or more sales without separate proposals if the transactions are part of a larger bonding program of similarly secured financings.
