Report Recommends Reauthorization of Alternative Public Works Contracting Laws

JLARC recommendations:  In a December 5, 2012 proposed final report, the staff of the Washington State Joint Legislative Audit and Review Committee (JLARC) has recommended that the three alternative public works contracting methods of Design-Build, General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM), and Job Order Contracting be reauthorized prior to their termination on June 30, 2013.  JLARC will meet in January to vote on adopting the report.

CPARB recommendations:  JLARC's review of RCW 39.10 (alternative public works contracting) was required by the Legislature and their recommendations will be important for the Legislature in considering reauthorization of RCW 39.10.  In addition, the Capital Projects Advisory Review Board (CPARB) made decisions and voted at their meeting of December 13, 2012 on specific language of the proposed reauthorization legislation.  Click here for a markup draft of the RCW 39.10 that CPARB considered along with a number of specific policy issues identified in the comments.  Not all of the items were approved by CPARB.
