Bond Counsel Invitation to Qualify

No. 081-0GC-ITQ-99-01

[29 Pa.B. 6299]

   The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is extending the time to accept qualifications from law firms for participation in bond counsel pools established by the Governor's Office of General Counsel (OGC). As previously advertised, the OGC intends to establish pools of qualified counsel to serve as bond counsel to the following agencies: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Office of the Budget; PENNVEST; Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency; Pennsylvania Economic Development Financing Authority; Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority; Pennsylvania Higher Educational Facilities Authority; and the State Public School Building Authority. The OGC is seeking to review qualifications from legal service providers (law firms) for participation in four designated bond counsel pools to serve the above-identified financing agencies through a formal Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) process. Those law firms that submitted qualifications by the November 22, 1999, deadline are not required to resubmit but may do so if desired.

   To obtain a copy of the ITQ or information on the OGC and the executive agencies to be served by the four bond counsel pools, law firms are encouraged to visit the OGC's Website at Law firms may also obtain a copy of the ITQ by sending a written request to M. Jane Demko by mail at Office of General Counsel, 333 Market Street, 17th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101, by E-mail at, or by fax at (717) 787-1788. Law firms should address questions pertaining to this ITQ to M. Jane Demko at the above-listed address, E-mail or fax. All submissions to this ITQ are due by 2 p.m. on January 14, 2000. The OGC will reject as nonresponsive all submissions received after this date and time. The OGC expects to make its bond counsel appointments for future Commonwealth financing transactions to law firms identified and qualified through this ITQ process and thus strongly encourages any and all interested law firms to participate at this time to ensure consideration of their qualifications to provide bond counsel services.
