Bond Counsel

 

Bond Counsel Selection

The bond counsel selection process has changed.  Schools are no longer required to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select their bond counsel.

The Governor’s Office of General Counsel (OGC) has created a pool of 20 qualified law firms to serve as bond counsel for SPSBA projects.  All firms have agreed to partner with a small diverse business (SDB) or are a SDB and most have agreed to partner with a veteran business enterprise (VBE). Schools financing through SPSBA select a law firm from the pool and negotiate the bond counsel fee.  The school informs SPSBA who has been selected to serve as bond counsel along with their SDB and/or VBE partners and the negotiated fee.  SPSBA staff will provide this information to the OGC.
