*IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE LAW GOVERNING INVOICING OF PERSONAL SERVICE CONTRACTS *  HB 387,  which passed during the 2010 Regular Session and became law upon the approval of the Governor on April 5, 2010, requires that no payment shall be made on any personal service contract unless the individual, firm, partnership, or corporation awarded the personal service contract submits its invoice for payment on a form established by the committee.  HB 387 amends KRS 45A.695.  At the August 10, 2010 Government Contract Review Committee meeting, the committee established a personal service contract invoice form.
