The Georgia legislature adopted a version of the Federal Miller Act to cover public works projects in Georgia, and this Georgia statute is commonly referred to as the Little Miller Act. Construction professionals, including contractors, specialty subcontractors and material suppliers working on Georgia public works projects are obligated to comply with all of the requirements of the Little Miller Act. Although it is similar to its Federal counterpart, the Georgia Miller Act has some distinct differences which can impact your business, your bids, and your payment bond claims
