General Information
Action Summary In the process of negotiating a contract with the exam vendor, the Board determined the cap on exam fees was problematic when attempting to expand exam services to include multiple languages. The Board currently adheres to the provisions of the Virginia Public Procurement Act and the agency believes that amending the regulations to remove the cap and allow the contracts to be negotiated within the provisions of the act without the cap, will allow for expanded services. These services include, but are not limited to, additional language services and remote proctoring. The Board is also seeking to remove an obsolete section regarding examinations administered by the Board. The Board no longer gives examinations and hasn’t done so in over 15 years.
