On May 3, 2012 the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts issued a decision that significantly impacts communities across the Commonwealth. In Barr Incorporated v. Town of Holliston, SJC-10899 (May 3, 2012)(slip opinion), the Supreme Judicial Court held that Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 149, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Public Building Construction Statute, does not limit a municipal awarding authority, in making a determination of bidder responsibility, to consideration of materials collected by the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance. Instead, a municipal awarding authority may conduct its own independent investigation into a bidder’s status.
