Architects, practice, state
ARCHITECTS – Amends existing law to include responding to solicitations for services within the practice of architecture and to provide that a firm offering to practice in Idaho shall identify an Idaho-licensed architect who will supervise such services.

RS30998 / H0466

This bill aims to level the playing field between Idaho based architectural firms and national firms when bidding on state projects. This bill does two things. 1. It amends 54-303 to clarify that the “practice of architecture” also includes “submitting a response” to an RFP, or RFQ 2. It amends 54-305 to make clear that a firm who “offers to practice” must have an Idaho licensed architect who will “supervise the architectural services” listed in the proposal.

This legislation causes no additional expenditure of funds at the state or local level of government nor does it cause an increase or decrease in revenue for state or local government, therefore the legislation has no fiscal impact.
