Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance/E-Verify Registration Requirements and Information
O.C.G.A. § 13-10-91 and E-Verify Compliance Required for “Responsible” Bidders.
To be considered a “responsible” Bidder, all Bidders are required to comply with O.C.G.A. § 13-10-91, a Georgia statute that prohibits a public employer such as the District from entering into any contract with a contractor who fails to participate in the federal work authorization program E-Verify or fails to demonstrate that it is not required to participate in the E-Verify program. In order to be deemed a “responsible” Bidder eligible for any ITB/RFP, the Bidder must provide the affidavit(s) or other documentation required O.C.G.A. § 13-10-91. While the District provides sample O.C.G.A. § 13-10-91 affidavit forms in the ITB/RFP, Bidders are solely responsible for familiarizing themselves with their obligations under O.C.G.A. § 13-10-91 and making sure that they provide the District with the required documentation.
