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.
