75-1257.Negotiation of contract with selected firm for professional design services; negotiating committee duties; failure to negotiate contract with selected firms; additional list. (a) Each negotiating committee shall decide which professional design services are desired and negotiate a contract with the selected firm for such professional design services as desired at a fair and reasonable rate of compensation. Whenever the project is for construction of a building or for major repairs or improvements for a building, such contract shall be for all phases of the project which are authorized by appropriations therefor.

(b) In such negotiations, the negotiating committee shall always consider demonstrated competence and qualifications, including satisfactory completion of any previous phase of work awarded for the same project, and shall take into account the estimated value of the services to be rendered and the scope, complexity and professional nature thereof. The negotiating committee shall attempt to negotiate a contract with any firm, which is on the list submitted by the state building advisory commission, for the later phases of work of any project upon which such firm has been awarded a contract and satisfactorily completed a previous phase of work.

(c) Should the negotiating committee be unable to negotiate a satisfactory contract with the firm considered to be the most qualified, negotiations with that firm shall be terminated. The negotiating committee shall then undertake negotiations with the second most qualified firm. Failing of accord with the second most qualified firm, negotiations with such firm shall be terminated. The negotiating committee shall then undertake negotiations with the third, fourth and fifth most qualified firm in turn. Should the negotiating committee be unable to negotiate a satisfactory contract with any of the selected firms, the committee shall reevaluate the services and fee requirements and reopen negotiations with any of the nominated firms.

(d) Should the negotiating committee still be unable to enter into a contract, it shall request the state building advisory commission to provide another list of nominees as provided in K.S.A. 75-1253, and amendments thereto.
