2016 Statute


72-6760e.Criteria for use; alternative project delivery. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of the law to the contrary, the board is hereby authorized to institute an alternative project delivery program whereby construction management at-risk procurement processes may be utilized on public projects pursuant to this act. This authorization for construction management at-risk procurement shall be for the sole and exclusive use of planning, acquiring, designing, building, equipping, altering, repairing, improving or demolishing any structure or appurtenance thereto, including facilities, utilities or other improvements to any real property, but shall not include stand-alone parking lots.

(b) The board may only approve those projects for which the use of the alternative project delivery procurement process is appropriate. In making such determination, the board shall consider the following factors:

(1) The likelihood that the alternative project delivery method of procurement selected will serve the public interest by providing substantial savings of time or money over the traditional design-bid-build delivery process.

(2) The ability to overlap design and construction phases is required to meet the needs of the end user.

(3) The use of an accelerated schedule is required to make repairs resulting from an emergency situation.

(4) The project presents significant phasing or technical complexities, or both, requiring the use of an integrated team of designers and constructors to solve project challenges during the design or preconstruction phase.

(5) The use of an alternative project delivery method will not encourage favoritism in awarding the public contract or substantially diminish competition for the public contract.

(c) When a board intends to utilize an alternative project delivery method, the board shall allow public comment on this intention at a school board meeting. Notice of this intention shall be clearly stated on the board agenda and in the official newspaper of the school district. Public comment on this intention at a board meeting shall occur before the selection process set forth in this statute may commence.

(d) Notwithstanding the provisions of K.S.A. 72-6760, and amendments thereto, if the board deems that the project does not qualify for the alternative project delivery method included under this act, then the construction services for such project shall be obtained pursuant to competitive bids and all contracts for construction services shall be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder consistent with the provisions of K.S.A 72-6760, and amendments thereto.
