Alternative public works contracting reauthorization gets first hearing

Authorization for three alternative public works contracting procedures in state law (RCW 39.10) is scheduled to sunset on June 30, 2013. The three methods are Design-Build, General Contractor/Construction Manager (GC/CM), and Job Order Contracting.

On Feb 4 at 10:00am, the Senate Governmental Operations Committee will hold a public hearing on SB 5349, which would reauthorize these procedures through 2021 and slightly expand their usage. These are important tools for a number of cities and AWC supports this reauthorization.

If you have comments or concerns about the bill, please contact Dave Catterson.
