Public procurement; requirements for certain construction projects; use of construction management. Restricts the use of construction management procurements by public bodies to contracts of $50 million or more, provided that such contracts involve projects that, among other requirements, are (i) of substantial historical value or interest or (ii) significantly unique or extremely complex in nature. State public bodies may request a waiver from the restriction on a project-by-project basis from the Director of the Department of General Services. In the case of procurement by localities, a waiver may be granted by the local governing body. The bill defines "public body" for the purposes of the use of construction management for construction to include public institutions of higher education under the Restructured Higher Education Financial and Administrative Operations Act of 2005 ( 23-38.88 et seq.) and any public body that has implemented the provisions of the Virginia Public Procurement Act pursuant to 2.2-4302.
