Virginia Public Procurement Act; job order contracting; limitations. Changes the maximum allowable sum of all jobs performed in a one-year contract term for job order contracts by increasing such maximum from the current amount of $5 million to $7 million on July 1, 2019, and providing for an adjustment on July 1 of each year thereafter calculated as the maximum threshold amount from the previous year multiplied by the annual inflation rate in the most recent Construction Cost Index (CCI) for the 20-city average published in the Engineering News-Record (ENR). The bill also provides an exception to allow job order contracting in the case of safety improvements or traffic calming measures that have been recommended as part of a professional engineering analysis and approved or endorsed by VDOT.
