SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A new law in New Mexico will allow businesses to go to a state website soon to find who to contact for submitting bids for government purchasing contracts.
    
The law was enacted earlier this year and it requires the chief procurement officers for state and local governments to be identified on the website of the State Purchasing Division by January.
    
General Services Secretary Ed Burckle says having the information available at a central location will help vendors who want to do business with the state or local governments.
    
The same law also will require governmental procurement officers to be certified by the state starting next year. That is intended to ensure that they are familiar with requirements for contracting with businesses for goods and services.
