01:41 PM -- Mr. Bruce Eisenhauer, representing the Department of Local Affairs, testified in favor of the bill. Mr. Eisenhauer explained the need to exempt certain types of state contracts from the Centralized Contract Management System. Mr. Eisenhauer responded to questions regarding the specific exclusions contained in the bill, and the reporting requirements for personal services associated with grant and loan contracts.
