S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 402 2013-2014 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E (PREFILED) January 9, 2013 ___________ Introduced by Sen. DILAN -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation AN ACT to amend the highway law, the state finance law, the public authorities law and the education law, in relation to alternative project delivery methodologies THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative finding and intent. The federal government and numerous states regularly engage in what is termed "alternative project delivery" options for the procurement and construction of both building and transportation projects. These methods, which include design-build, construction manager at-risk, public/private partnerships and integrated project delivery have become proven methods for the efficient and effec- tive delivery of public construction projects. Such methodologies have often produced high-quality projects at lower costs and at greatly improved timeframes. Although design-bid-build should remain the primary method to deliver most public construction projects, the legislature declares that the department of transportation, the office of general services, the dormi- tory authority, the thruway authority, the state university construction fund, the city university construction fund, the New York city school construction authority and the metropolitan transportation authority should be permitted to engage in such "alternative project delivery" methods, subject to certain limitations and protections. S 2. Section 38 of the highway law is amended by adding a new subdivi- sion 10 to read as follows: 10. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS SECTION OR THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION ONE HUNDRED SIXTY-THREE OF THE STATE FINANCE LAW, THE DEPARTMENT MAY PROCURE SERVICES TO CONSTRUCT OR IMPROVE A STATE HIGHWAY PURSUANT TO AN ALTERNATIVE PROJECT DELIVERY METHODOLOGY AS EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
