Section 4 of 2014, Oct. 14, P.L. 2494, No. 142, imd. effective, provides that “[t]he Department of General Services may designate the operational date of the State Construction Notices Directory under section 501.1(b) [49 P.S. § 1501.1(b)]. If the Department of General Services designates an operational date other than December 31, 2016, it shall transmit the designation to the Legislative Reference Bureau for publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.”
Section 5(2) of 2014, Oct. 14, P.L. 2494, No. 142, imd. effective, provides that “[t]he notice provisions of sections 501.2, 501.3, 501.4 and 501.5 of the act [49 P.S. §§ 1501.2 to 1501.5] shall take effect December 31, 2016, or on the date of publication of the operational date in the Pennsylvania Bulletin under section 4 of this act.”
On Dec. 29, 2016, the Department of General Services publicly announced the online availability of the State Construction Notices Directory. However, notice of a Dec. 29, 2016 operational date was not published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Therefore, pursuant to section 5(2) of 2014, Oct. 14, P.L. 2494, No. 142, an effective date of Dec. 31, 2016 has been assigned to 49 P.S. §§ 1501.2 to 1501.5.
