Findings for Recovery

What is this? This database is used by local governments and state agencies to check and ensure, as required by law, that public contracts are not awarded to persons or businesses against which a Finding for Recovery has been issued and remains unresolved.

Two search options are available: a certified search (which may be required by law) and a general search, from which results are not certified.
