venture as a condition of being awarded a grant;
  (d)  the  availability  of  resources within state agencies to perform
title searches and evaluate deed records;
  (e) which, if any, private  title  search  companies  and  independent
project  management  groups  have  already  been vetted by the office of
general services;
