Case Update: Leblanc Marine, LLC v. State of Louisiana (La. Oct. 2019)

October 30, 2019|

The Louisiana Supreme Court recently provided clarity in a muddled area of the Public Bid Law jurisprudence, holding that public bidding requirements that are inconsistent or in conflict with the Public Bid Law are invalid.  Public entities have long advertised bidding requirements beyond the Public Bid Law requirements when they seek bids for public work projects. Since the Louisiana Supreme Court’s 2006 Hamp’s decision, it was clear public entities could not waive any advertised bidding requirement, even if considered insignificant, because the Public Bid Law expressly precludes waiving advertised bidding requirements.  Thus, a bidder who failed to comply with an advertised bidding requirement could not be awarded a contract.
