NJCPA Opposes Bill That Would Require State Contractors to Install Tracking Software

On July 28, 2020, the NJCPA, AICPA and several other associations sent a letter to New Jersey lawmakers opposing Assembly bill 702. 

The letter states, in part, "We are deeply concerned with A. 702,
legislation that mandates that state contractors install tracking software to verify that they are working on state business. We respectfully urge against moving forward with the bill as it would jeopardize the privacy of New Jersey citizens, poses risks to the security of state and vendor computer networks, imposes impractical and unnecessary requirements on state contractors, and would lead to added costs to the state."
