A request for proposals to work on Vermont’s first online sex offender registry has yielded no interested bidders. That means attorneys for the Department of Public Safety are drafting the administrative rules for the registry instead.
A state statute requires those rules to be completed before the Web site becomes available to the public on October 1. The Legislature in May approved the law creating the offender registry. It would put online the pictures of offenders convicted of aggravated sexual assault or those who have not complied with treatment programs required by the Vermont Corrections Department.
The deadline for submitting bids for the project was July 6.
