CRA RFPs, CCNA and Piggybacking
As of October 1, 2019, CRAs in Florida must follow the procurement policies of creating local government. During this episode of the Redevelopment Works podcast, we will take a deep dive into purchasing rules and regulations as well as how new statutes align with the other requirements already applicable to CRAs.

We are seeking knowledge by attorneys who have successfully completed the disposal process in a CRA.
