Virginia Public Procurement Act; methods of procurement; design-build by certain local public bodies. Provides that design-build or construction management projects undertaken by any local governing body of a locality with a population in excess of 100,000 shall be exempt only from approval of the Design-Build Review Board. These localities, however, must have had a one-time determination by the Design-Build Review Board that the locality has the personnel, procedures and expertise to enter into such contracts. As a result, such local governing bodies have authority to enter into contacts on a fixed price design-build basis or construction management basis. Read the Bill »
