Order #26 issued by Governor Christine Todd Whitman in 1994
specifies that any issuer pledging state revenues must follow
a public Request for Proposals/Qualifications (RFP/RFQ) competitive process for the selection of bond
counsel. The Attorney General selects the bond counsel after
reviewing RFP/RFQ responses.
The Executive Order does allow for the establishment of prequalified “pools” of bond counsels that can be selected for two or more sales without separate proposals if the transactions are part of a larger bonding program of similarly secured financings.
