The State of Georgia used a competitive bidding procedure to select Johnson-Laux Construction to serve as the sole provider of these services for this region. This Georgia State contract was awarded with a contract term of July 21, 2017 through July 20, 2020.

The Office of Business Opportunity coordinated with the State Contractor, Johnson-Laux Construction and established a 20% LDBE goal.  The contractor has a 10% prime participation and a 11% sub-contractor using E&D Contracting.
