SB 179 - This act authorizes the Division of Design and Construction to enter into "design-build" contracts for the development of state buildings. The Director of the Division of Design and Construction may determine that a design-build procurement process is necessary for any particular project based upon criteria set out in the act. No more than ten percent of the projects bid in any fiscal year shall be design-build projects. The Division may hire a consultant to prepare proposals, review documents, decide disputes and make inspections. Design-build proposals are evaluated by a team composed of two representatives of the Division, two representatives of the agency that is to use the finished building and a chairman appointed by the Director of the Division.
Proposals may be solicited in three phases: Phase I involves soliciting of qualifications so that design-builders may be pre- qualified. The top five qualifiers will be asked to participate in phase II, in which they submit their design for the project. In phase III, the design-build contractors shall submit cost proposals. The phases shall be weighted and the weight of each shall be at least 30%.
The act allows persons or corporations (architects, engineers and land surveyors) who are not licensed or do not hold a certificate under Chapter 327, RSMo, to enter into agreements to design and build projects for public or private entities without being licensed in Missouri. The person or corporation cannot hold itself out as being able to perform those services and the actual work must be performed by persons licensed or by corporations holding a certificate to provide architectural, engineering or land survey services.
This act is similar to SS/SB 620 (1998).
