TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the elder law, in relation to authorizing a pooled purchasing program for certain services and commodities
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Adds a new subdivision 11 to section 203 of the elder law, to authorize the state office for the aging to establish, operate, coordinate, encourage the development of, and/or maintain, or to contract for the operation of a pooled purchasing program for certain services and commodities, including but not limited to liability and vehicle insurance on behalf of entities, programs, and services for the aging over which it has jurisdiction, oversight, or other contractual relationship.
The ability to pool purchasing requests for automobile and liability insurance should result in lower costs for those entities under the jurisdiction of SOFA. Note that this does not require that SOFA establish a pool, only that it help in the creation of such pool or pools.
