Description

Public procurement; contracting for construction on a construction management basis. Authorizes state public bodies and public institutions of higher education to enter into contracts for construction on a construction management basis where the estimated cost is expected to be greater than $40 million of actual construction costs without following certain statutory procedures. Under current law, such bodies are required to comply with the procedures whenever such bodies decide to use construction management. The bill also changes the threshold for local public bodies to contract for construction using construction management from $10 million to $40 million. The bill also amends the components of the definition "complex project" by (i) removing references to multifaceted program, unique equipment, and specialized building systems; (ii) adding unconventional building systems; (iii) clarifying that the accelerated schedule component of the definition must be due to regulatory mandates; and (iv) requiring that any historic designation be properly registered.
