Provides that a deficiency in the bid or proposal may only be cured by contracting with additional subcontractors who are owned by minorities, females, or, where applicable, persons with disabilities (currently, by hiring additional personnel who are minorities, females, or persons with disabilities, or by contracting with additional subcontractors who are owned by minorities, females, or persons with disabilities), but in no case shall an identified subcontractor with a certification be terminated from the contract without the written consent of the State agency or public institution of higher education entering the contract.
