 43.19  colleges and universities, and the regents of the University of 
 43.20  Minnesota, shall establish budget guidelines for building 
 43.21  maintenance and betterment appropriations.  Unless otherwise 
 43.22  provided by the commissioner of finance, the combined amount to 
 43.23  be budgeted each year for building maintenance and betterment in 
 43.24  the operating budget and capital budget is two one percent of 
 43.25  the replacement cost of the building, adjusted up or down 
 43.26  depending on the age and condition of the building. 
 43.27     Sec. 33.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 16A.501, is 
 43.28  amended to read: 
 43.29     16A.501 [REPORT ON EXPENDITURE OF BOND PROCEEDS.] 
 43.30     The commissioner of finance must report annually to the 
 43.31  legislature on the degree to which entities receiving 
 43.32  appropriations of bond proceeds for capital projects in previous 
 43.33  omnibus capital improvement acts have encumbered or expended 
 43.34  that money.  The report must be submitted to the chairs of the 
 43.35  house of representatives ways and means committee and the senate 
 43.36  finance committee by February 1 of each year. 
 44.1      Sec. 34.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 16A.632, 
 44.2   subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
 44.3      Subd. 2.  [STANDARDS.] Article XI, section 5, clause (a), 
 44.4   of the constitution states general obligation bonds may be 
 44.5   issued to finance only the acquisition or betterment of state 
 44.6   land, buildings, and improvements of a capital nature.  In 
 44.7   interpreting this and applying it to the purposes of the program 
 44.8   contemplated in this section, the following standards are 
 44.9   adopted for the disbursement of money from the capital asset 
 44.10  preservation and replacement account:  
 44.11     (a) No new land, buildings, or major new improvements will 
 44.12  be acquired.  These projects, including all capital expenditures 
 44.13  required to permit their effective use for the intended purpose 
 44.14  on completion, will be estimated and provided for individually 
 44.15  through a direct appropriation for each project.  
 44.16     (b) An expenditure will be made from the account only when 
 44.17  it is a capital expenditure on a capital asset previously owned 
 44.18  by the state, within the meaning of accepted accounting 
 44.19  principles as applied to public expenditures.  The commissioner 
 44.20  of administration will consult with the commissioner of finance 
 44.21  to the extent necessary to ensure this and will furnish the 
 44.22  commissioner of finance a list of projects to be financed from 
 44.23  the account in order of their priority.  The commissioner shall 
 44.24  also furnish each revision of the list.  The legislature assumes 
 44.25  that many provisions for preservation and replacement of 
 44.26  portions of existing capital assets will constitute betterments 
 44.27  and capital improvements within the meaning of the constitution 
 44.28  and capital expenditures under correct accounting principles, 
 44.29  and will be financed more efficiently and economically under the 
 44.30  program than by direct appropriations for specific projects.  
 44.31  However, the purpose of the program is to accumulate data 
 44.32  showing how additional costs may be saved by appropriating money 
 44.33  from the general fund for preservation measures, the necessity 
 44.34  of which is predictable over short periods.  
 44.35     (c) The commissioner of administration will furnish 
 44.36  instructions to agencies to apply for funding of capital 
 45.1   expenditures for preservation and replacement from the account, 
 45.2   will review applications, will make initial allocations among 
 45.3   types of eligible projects enumerated below, will determine 
 45.4   priorities, and will allocate money in priority order until the 
 45.5   available appropriation has been committed.  
 45.6      (d) Categories of projects considered likely to be most 
 45.7   needed and appropriate for financing are the following:  
 45.8      (1) unanticipated emergencies of all kinds, for which a 
 45.9   relatively small amount should be initially reserved, replaced 
 45.10  from money allocated to low-priority projects, if possible, as 
 45.11  emergencies occur, and used for stabilization rather than 
 45.12  replacement if the cost would exhaust the account and should be 
 45.13  specially appropriated; 
 45.14     (2) projects to remove life safety hazards, like 
 45.15  replacement of mechanical systems, building code violations, or 
 45.16  structural defects, at costs not large enough to require major 
 45.17  capital requests to the legislature; 
 45.18     (3) elimination or containment of hazardous substances like 
 45.19  asbestos or PCBs; and 
 45.20     (4) moderate cost replacement and repair of roofs, windows, 
 45.21  tuckpointing, and structural members necessary to preserve the 
 45.22  exterior and interior of existing buildings; and 
 45.23     (5) up to ten percent of an appropriation awarded under 
 45.24  this section may be used for design costs for projects eligible 
 45.25  to be funded from this account in anticipation of future funding 
 45.26  from the account.  
 45.27     Sec. 35.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 16A.86, 
 45.28  subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 45.29     Subd. 3.  [EVALUATION.] (a) The commissioner shall evaluate 
 45.30  all requests from political subdivisions for state assistance 
 45.31  based on the following criteria: 
 45.32     (1) the political subdivision has provided for local, 
 45.33  private, and user financing for the project to the maximum 
 45.34  extent possible; 
 45.35     (2) the project helps fulfill an important state mission; 
 45.36     (3) the project is of regional or statewide significance; 
 46.1      (4) the project will not require new or any additional 
 46.2   state operating subsidies; 
 46.3      (5) the project will not expand the state's role in a new 
 46.4   policy area; 
 46.5      (6) state funding for the project will not create 
 46.6   significant inequities among local jurisdictions; 
 46.7      (7) the project will not compete with other facilities in 
 46.8   such a manner that they lose a significant number of users to 
 46.9   the new project; and 
 46.10     (8) the governing bodies of those political subdivisions 
 46.11  primarily benefiting from the project have passed resolutions in 
 46.12  support of the project and have established priorities for all 
 46.13  projects within their jurisdictions for which bonding 
 46.14  appropriations are requested when submitting multiple requests; 
 46.15  and 
 46.16     (9) if a predesign that meets the requirements of section 
 46.17  16B.335 has been completed and is available at the time the 
 46.18  project request is submitted to the commissioner of finance, the 
 46.19  applicant has submitted the project predesign to the 
 46.20  commissioner of administration. 
 46.21     (b) The commissioner's evaluation of each request, 
 46.22  including whether it meets each of the criteria in paragraph 
 46.23  (a), must be submitted to the legislature along with the 
 46.24  governor's recommendations under section 16A.11, subdivision 1, 
 46.25  whether or not the governor recommends that the request be 
 46.26  funded. 
 46.27     Sec. 36.  [16B.245] [INVENTORY OF STATE-OWNED LAND.] 
 46.28     Subdivision 1.  [DEFINITIONS.] For the purposes of this 
 46.29  section, "state-owned land" means land, with or without 
 46.30  improvements upon it, for which the state owns fee title.  It 
 46.31  does not include: 
 46.32     (1) land held in trust by the state for political 
 46.33  subdivisions of the state; 
 46.34     (2) permanent school trust fund lands; 
 46.35     (3) university trust fund lands; 
 46.36     (4) mineral interests; or 
 47.1      (5) trunk highway right-of-way. 
 47.2      Subd. 2.  [INVENTORY.] The commissioner of administration 
 47.3   must inventory all state-owned land and determine the number of 
 47.4   acres owned by the state as of December 31, 2002.  The inventory 
 47.5   must identify for each parcel the state agency responsible for 
 47.6   the parcel, its location, size, and whether it is (1) currently 
 47.7   being used for a public purpose, (2) anticipated to be used for 
 47.8   a public purpose in the future, or (3) not currently being used 
 47.9   or anticipated to be used for a public purpose.  The inventory 
 47.10  must also identify how much land is included in each 
 47.11  classification under section 86A.05.  Within two months of 
 47.12  completing the inventory, and by January 15 each odd-numbered 
 47.13  year thereafter, the commissioner must report on the inventory 
 47.14  to the chairs of the house and senate committees with 
 47.15  jurisdiction over higher education, capital investment, and 
 47.16  natural resources and environment finance, and the chairs of the 
 47.17  house committee on ways and means and the senate committee on 
 47.18  finance. 
 47.19     Sec. 37.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 16B.31,

 47.34  subdivision does not apply to the construction of the zoological 
 47.35  gardens.  
 47.36     (b) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the

 48.19  amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 48.20     Subd. 5.  [DESIGN-BUILD.] (a) The board shall select 
 48.21  design-builders under section 16C.30 for all design-build

 50.36  design and construct, erect, or remodel a building by or for the 
 51.1   state or an agency under the supervision and control of the 
 51.2   commissioner under section 16B.30 or the board of regents of the 
 51.3   university of Minnesota or the board of trustees of the 
 51.4   Minnesota state colleges and universities. 
 51.5      Subd. 11.  [EXPIRATION.] This section expires January 1, 
 51.6   2004. 
 51.7      Sec. 41.  [16C.30] [DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACTS.] 
 51.8      Subdivision 1.  [GENERAL AUTHORITY.] (a) Notwithstanding 
 51.9   section 16C.03, subdivision 3, the commissioner may solicit and 
 51.10  award a design-build contract between the commissioner and a 
 51.11  design-builder utilizing the competitive acquisition process 
 51.12  described in subdivisions 5 through 9 if the commissioner meets 
 51.13  the conditions in paragraph (b).  A design-build contract may 
 51.14  provide the architectural, engineering, and related design 
 51.15  services as well as the labor, materials, supplies, equipment, 
 51.16  and construction services for a project.  A design-build 
 51.17  contract may include telecommunications cabling but must not 
 51.18  include acquisition of personal property related to the 
 51.19  operations of the occupants.  The commissioner may make changes 
 51.20  to the project without invalidating the design-build contract. 
 51.21     (b) The commissioner shall, for each project for which the 
 51.22  commissioner intends to use the design-build method, make a 
 51.23  written determination that it is in the best interest of the 
 51.24  state to use the design-build method to complete the project.  
 51.25  In making this determination, the commissioner shall use the 
 51.26  following criteria as the minimum basis for the determination: 
 51.27     (1) the extent to which the project requirements can be 
 51.28  adequately defined in a request for proposal before completing 
 51.29  the design process; 
 51.30     (2) the suitability of the delivery method with respect to 
 51.31  scope, schedule, cost, and quality factors; 
 51.32     (3) the suitability of the delivery method to minimize 
 51.33  life-cycle costs to the extent available within the project 
 51.34  budget; 
 51.35     (4) the suitability of the delivery method to efficiently 
 51.36  achieve functionality requirements; 
 52.1      (5) the impact of the project schedule on the agency's 
 52.2   delivery of services and project cost; 
 52.3      (6) the resources of the department of administration to 
 52.4   manage the project through employment of experienced personnel 
 52.5   or hiring of consultants; 
 52.6      (7) the resources of the department of administration to 
 52.7   oversee the project with persons who are familiar and 
 52.8   experienced with the design-build method of project delivery or 
 52.9   similar experience; and 
 52.10     (8) other criteria that the commissioner deems relevant and 
 52.11  that are included in the written determination. 
 52.12     (c) The authority and duties prescribed for the board, the 
 52.13  commissioner, and department of administration under this 
 52.14  section are granted to and must be performed by the board of 
 52.15  regents of the university of Minnesota and the board of trustees 
 52.16  of the Minnesota state colleges and universities on projects 
 52.17  under their control. 
 52.18     Subd. 2.  [LICENSING REQUIREMENTS.] (a) Each design-builder 
 52.19  shall be, employ, or have as a partner, member, coventurer, or 
 52.20  subcontractor, persons duly licensed, certified, or registered 
 52.21  to provide the services required to complete the project and do 
 52.22  business in this state. 
 52.23     (b) A design-builder may contract with the commissioner to 
 52.24  provide professional or construction services that the 
 52.25  design-builder is not itself licensed, certified, registered, or 
 52.26  qualified to perform, so long as the design-builder provides the 
 52.27  services through subcontracts with duly licensed, certified, or 
 52.28  registered, or otherwise qualified persons in accordance with 
 52.29  this section. 
 52.30     (c) Nothing in this section authorizing design-build 
 52.31  contracts is intended to limit or eliminate the responsibility 
 52.32  or liability owed by a professional on a design-build project to 
 52.33  the state or other third parties under existing law.  The design 
 52.34  service portion of a design-build contract is considered a 
 52.35  service and not a product. 
 52.36     Subd. 3.  [UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA AND MINNESOTA STATE 
 53.1   COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES SELECTION PROCESS.] (a) The board of 
 53.2   regents of the university of Minnesota and the board of trustees 
 53.3   of the Minnesota state colleges and universities shall select 
 53.4   design-builders for all design-build projects under their 
 53.5   supervision and control and funded by the state following the 
 53.6   procedures and performing the duties prescribed for the board 
 53.7   and commissioner in subdivisions 5 through 9.  The board of 
 53.8   regents and the board of trustees shall either use the board or 
 53.9   establish an evaluation team of at least seven persons to 
 53.10  evaluate and recommend design-builders under this section to 
 53.11  include three persons selected as provided in paragraph (b).  
 53.12  The final selection must be made by the board of regents or the 
 53.13  board of trustees. 
 53.14     (b) Upon written request from the board of regents or the 
 53.15  board of trustees, each of the following three organizations 
 53.16  shall nominate one individual whose name and qualifications must 
 53.17  be submitted to the board of trustees for consideration:  the 
 53.18  Consulting Engineers Council of Minnesota after consultation 
 53.19  with other professional engineering societies in the state; the 
 53.20  AIA Minnesota; and the Minnesota chapter of the Associated 
 53.21  General Contractors after consultation with other commercial 
 53.22  contractor associations in the state.  The board of regents or 
 53.23  the board of trustees may appoint the three named individuals to 
 53.24  the evaluation team or reject a nominated individual and request 
 53.25  another nomination.  The board of regents or the board of 
 53.26  trustees shall determine the term of the appointment.  The other 
 53.27  members of the evaluation team must be representatives of the 
 53.28  university of Minnesota or the Minnesota state colleges and 
 53.29  universities.  The interviews are public meetings and a video or 
 53.30  audio recording of the meetings must be made and is public 
 53.31  information.  The final recommendations and rankings must be in 
 53.32  writing. 
 53.33     Subd. 4.  [DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN CRITERIA.] (a) Each 
 53.34  request for proposals for a design-build contract must contain 
 53.35  design criteria prepared by a design criteria professional who 
 53.36  holds licenses or certifications under sections 326.02 to 326.15 
 54.1   and is either an employee of the state, the university of 
 54.2   Minnesota, or a consultant hired by the commissioner.  If the 
 54.3   design criteria professional is a consultant hired by the state, 
 54.4   the licensure requirement may be met by employing individuals 
 54.5   who hold a license or licenses under sections 326.02 to 326.15.  
 54.6   The commissioner may elect to designate the board to select the 
 54.7   consultant in compliance with section 16B.33.  
 54.8      (b) Design criteria set forth in the request for proposals 
 54.9   must specify all information needed to adequately describe the 
 54.10  project, including performance-based criteria such as 
 54.11  sustainability and life-cycle costing requirements; interior 
 54.12  space requirements, including adjacency diagrams; material 
 54.13  quality standards; architectural image and building form 
 54.14  standards; building air quality requirements; commissioning 
 54.15  requirements; building burn-in requirements; cost estimates; 
 54.16  design and construction schedules; site development 
 54.17  requirements; utility requirements; storm water retention and 
 54.18  disposal requirements; and parking requirements.  If necessary 
 54.19  to adequately describe the project, the design criteria must 
 54.20  include a boundary and topographic survey of the site, with the 
 54.21  legal description and geotechnical and environmental information 
 54.22  concerning the site.  
 54.23     (c) There must be an owner's representative for each 
 54.24  design-build project.  The owner's representative must be either 
 54.25  an employee of the state, university of Minnesota, or a 
 54.26  consultant hired by the commissioner.  Subject to the minimum 
 54.27  requirements of paragraphs (a) and (b), the commissioner, in 
 54.28  consultation with the agency, the owner's representative, and 
 54.29  the design criteria professional, shall determine the scope and 
 54.30  level of detail required for the design criteria to be included 
 54.31  in the request for proposals. 
 54.32     Subd. 5.  [SOLICITATION OF PROPOSALS.] (a) The commissioner 
 54.33  shall prepare a request for proposals, which must contain, at a 
 54.34  minimum, the following elements: 
 54.35     (1) the identity of the agency that will utilize the 
 54.36  completed project; 
 55.1      (2) the procedures for submitting proposals, the criteria 
 55.2   for evaluation of proposals and their relative weight for each 
 55.3   phase, how those criteria will be scored, and the procedures for 
 55.4   making awards; 
 55.5      (3) the terms and conditions for the design-build contract; 
 55.6      (4) the design criteria; 
 55.7      (5) the qualifications the design builder will be required 
 55.8   to have; 
 55.9      (6) a request for a critical path method schedule for 
 55.10  commencement and completion of the project; 
 55.11     (7) budget limits for the project; 
 55.12     (8) affirmative action, disadvantaged businesses, small 
 55.13  business, or set-aside goals or requirements for the 
 55.14  design-build contract; 
 55.15     (9) requirements for insurance, performance and payment 
 55.16  bonds, bid bonds, and cash deposits; 
 55.17     (10) a description of the drawings, specifications, or 
 55.18  other submittals to be submitted with the phase-two proposal, 
 55.19  with guidance as to the form and level of completeness of the 
 55.20  drawings, specifications, or submittals that will be acceptable; 
 55.21     (11) the professional and technical services contract to be 
 55.22  entered into with the design-builders selected to submit 
 55.23  phase-two proposals, including scope of work, use of ideas or 
 55.24  information, and compensation; and 
 55.25     (12) identification of any other material information 
 55.26  available from the commissioner or board, including, without 
 55.27  limitation, surveys, soils reports, drawings or models of 
 55.28  existing structures, environmental studies, photographs, or 
 55.29  references to public records. 
 55.30     (b) The solicitation of request for proposals does not 
 55.31  obligate the commissioner to enter into a design-build 
 55.32  contract.  In accordance with the stated criteria for evaluating 
 55.33  proposals, the commissioner may accept or reject any or all 
 55.34  proposals received as a result of the request.  The notification 
 55.35  of rejection of all proposals must include an explanation for 
 55.36  all proposals being rejected.  The solicitation for proposals 
 56.1   may be canceled at any time in the commissioner's sole 
 56.2   discretion if it is considered to be in the state's best 
 56.3   interest.  If the commissioner rejects all proposals or cancels 
 56.4   the solicitation for proposals, the commissioner may resolicit a 
 56.5   request for proposals using the same or different requirements 
 56.6   or request the board to select a designer under section 16B.33 
 56.7   and proceed with the design-bid-build delivery method. 
 56.8      Subd. 6.  [QUALIFICATION; PHASE-ONE SUBMITTAL.] (a) In 
 56.9   phase one, the board and commissioner shall evaluate the 
 56.10  design-build qualifications of the design-builders who responded 
 56.11  to the request for proposals with phase-one submittals based on 
 56.12  each design-builder's experience, technical competence, and 
 56.13  capability to perform; the past performance of the 
 56.14  design-builder and its employees, quality control organization 
 56.15  and system, sustainability, and life-cycle costing methodology; 
 56.16  and other appropriate facts submitted by each design-builder in 
 56.17  response to the request for proposals all in accordance with the 
 56.18  weighted criteria that are stated for phase-one evaluations in 
 56.19  the request for proposals.  The phase-one or phase-two 
 56.20  evaluation of the "past performance" or "experience" of a 
 56.21  proposer must not include the exercise or assertion of a 
 56.22  person's legal rights.  The board or commissioner may require 
 56.23  clarifications from design-builders. 
 56.24     (b) If the project is within the capitol area, the capitol 
 56.25  area architecture and planning board, as defined in section 
 56.26  15.50, shall participate in the evaluation of phase-one 
 56.27  submittals. 
 56.28     (c) The board shall select to a short list the most 
 56.29  qualified design-builders that have responded with phase-one 
 56.30  submittals based on the weighted criteria for phase-one 
 56.31  evaluations stated in the request for proposals.  For projects 
 56.32  involving only renovation, in the discretion of the 
 56.33  commissioner, the design-builder may be selected only on the 
 56.34  phase-one submissions, or after a phase-two submission.  For all 
 56.35  other projects, the board shall prepare a list of at least three 
 56.36  potential design-builders to submit phase-two proposals.  The 
 57.1   board shall not proceed to obtain phase-two proposals or make a 
 57.2   selection, as applicable, unless it receives phase-one 
 57.3   submittals from at least three qualified design-builders.  If 
 57.4   the board receives fewer than three phase-one submittals from 
 57.5   qualified design-builders, the commissioner may cancel the 
 57.6   solicitation for proposals, revise the request for proposals, 
 57.7   and solicit new proposals or request the board to select a 
 57.8   designer under section 16B.33 and proceed with the 
 57.9   design-bid-build delivery method. 
 57.10     (d) The commissioner shall enter into the professional and 
 57.11  technical services contract included in the request for 
 57.12  proposals with each of the design-builders qualified by the 
 57.13  board to submit phase-two proposals. 
 57.14     Subd. 7.  [PHASE-TWO PROPOSALS.] (a) The professional and 
 57.15  technical services contract with the design-builders selected to 
 57.16  submit phase-two proposals provided in the request for proposals 
 57.17  must require at least the following: 
 57.18     (1) preliminary plans and specifications, renderings, and 
 57.19  models as may be required in the request for proposals in 
 57.20  sufficient detail, to describe the character, quality, and scope 
 57.21  of the project; 
 57.22     (2) a design and construction schedule; 
 57.23     (3) the all-inclusive fixed price at which the 
 57.24  design-builder will complete the project if the phase-two 
 57.25  proposal is accepted, including a total development cost budget 
 57.26  in detail by building component with all soft costs, allowances, 
 57.27  and design fees; and 
 57.28     (4) other materials the board or commissioner determines 
 57.29  are necessary to fix the design, schedule, and cost of the 
 57.30  project. 
 57.31     (b) Phase-two proposals must be sealed and may not be 
 57.32  opened until expiration of the time established for making 
 57.33  proposals as set forth in the request for proposals. 
 57.34     (c) Phase-two proposals must identify each person with whom 
 57.35  the design-builder proposes to enter into subcontracts for 
 57.36  primary design and construction obligations under the 
 58.1   design-build contract.  Persons so identified may not be 
 58.2   replaced without the approval of the commissioner, or the award 
 58.3   may be revoked. 
 58.4      (d) The design-builder must submit a written statement that 
 58.5   the phase-two proposal meets all requirements of the request for 
 58.6   proposals. 
 58.7      (e) The commissioner may require each design-builder to 
 58.8   submit with its phase-one or phase-two proposal, as applicable, 
 58.9   a cash deposit or bid bond in the amount of five percent of the 
 58.10  budget for the design-build contract.  If the phase-one or 
 58.11  phase-two proposal, as applicable, is accepted but the 
 58.12  design-builder fails to execute the design-build contract, the 
 58.13  deposit or bond is forfeited to the extent allowable under law, 
 58.14  including the cost to the state of delays, resolicitation, and 
 58.15  other results of the failure of the selected design-builder to 
 58.16  enter into the design-build contract. 
 58.17     Subd. 8.  [STIPULATED FEE.] The commissioner may award a 
 58.18  stipulated fee not less than two-tenths of one percent of the 
 58.19  department's estimated cost of design and construction to each 
 58.20  short-listed, responsible proposer who provides a responsive but 
 58.21  unsuccessful proposal.  If the commissioner does not award a 
 58.22  contract, all short-listed proposers may receive the stipulated 
 58.23  fee.  If the commissioner cancels the contract before reviewing 
 58.24  the technical proposals, the commissioner may award each 
 58.25  design-builder on the short list a stipulated fee of not less 
 58.26  than two-tenths of one percent of the commissioner's estimated 
 58.27  cost of design and construction.  The commissioner shall pay the 
 58.28  stipulated fee, if any, to each proposer within 90 days after 
 58.29  the award of the contract or the decision not to award a 
 58.30  contract.  In consideration for paying the stipulated fee, the 
 58.31  commissioner may use any ideas or information contained in the 
 58.32  proposals in connection with any contract awarded for the 
 58.33  project or in connection with a subsequent procurement, without 
 58.34  any obligation to pay any additional compensation to the 
 58.35  unsuccessful proposers.  Notwithstanding the other provisions of 
 58.36  this subdivision, an unsuccessful short-list proposer may elect 
 59.1   to waive the stipulated fee.  If an unsuccessful short-list 
 59.2   proposer elects to waive the stipulated fee, the commissioner 
 59.3   may not use ideas and information contained in that proposer's 
 59.4   proposal.  Upon the request of the commissioner, a proposer who 
 59.5   waived a stipulated fee may withdraw the waiver, in which case 
 59.6   the commissioner shall pay the stipulated fee, if any, to the 
 59.7   proposer and thereafter may use ideas and information in the 
 59.8   proposer's proposal. 
 59.9      Subd. 9.  [DESIGN-BUILDER SELECTION.] (a) After obtaining 
 59.10  and evaluating proposals from each design-builder according to 
 59.11  the criteria and procedures in the request for proposals, the 
 59.12  board shall rank the phase-one or phase-two proposals, as 
 59.13  applicable, and select the proposal that is rated the highest 
 59.14  based on the weighted evaluation criteria in the request for 
 59.15  proposal.  The board or commissioner may require clarifications 
 59.16  from design-builders during the evaluation process.  Selection 
 59.17  according to this method may result in an award not being made 
 59.18  to the lowest cost proposal. 
 59.19     (b) If the project is within the capitol area, the capitol 
 59.20  area architectural and planning board shall participate in the 
 59.21  evaluation of phase-two proposals. 
 59.22     Subd. 10.  [AWARD OF DESIGN-BUILD CONTRACT.] If the 
 59.23  commissioner decides not to reject all proposals, the 
 59.24  commissioner shall award and enter into the design-build 
 59.25  contract with the design-builder that submitted the phase-one or 
 59.26  phase-two proposal, as applicable, rated highest based on the 
 59.27  weighted evaluation criteria as evaluated under the request for 
 59.28  qualifications or request for proposals as applicable.

 61.31     (2) the need for preservation and enhancement of the 
 61.32  shoreland due to existing degradation and erosion; and 
 61.33     (3) the extent that funding, including in-kind 
 61.34  contributions, has been committed to implement the conservation

 63.22  state; and 
 63.23     (4) the project will create or maintain full-time jobs.  
 63.24     The determination of whether to make a grant for a site is

 63.36     Subd. 7.  [CANCELLATION OF GRANT; RETURN OF GRANT 
 64.1   MONEY.] If after five years, the commissioner determines that a 
 64.2   project has not proceeded in a timely manner and is unlikely to 
 64.3   be completed, the commissioner must cancel the grant and require 
 64.4   the grantee to return all grant money awarded for that project.  
 64.5   For industrial park development projects, if after five years 
 64.6   the industrial park is not developed and available for business 
 64.7   use, the commissioner must cancel the grant and require the 
 64.8   grantee to return all grant money for that project.  If the 
 64.9   industrial park is developed and available for use within five 
 64.10  years, but no businesses have located in the park, the grantee 
 64.11  is not required to return any grant money.  
 64.12     Subd. 8.  [APPROPRIATION.] Grant money returned to the 
 64.13  commissioner is appropriated to the commissioner to make

 75.15  adopt a short list of at least two but no more than five of the 
 75.16  most highly qualified firms in accordance with qualifications 
 75.17  criteria described in the RFQ.  Prior to adoption of the short 
 75.18  list, the designer selection committee or the county board may 
 75.19  require clarification from the design-builders to ensure 
 75.20  conformance of proposals to the RFQ.  The county must not 
 75.21  consider cost-related or price-related evaluation factors in 
 75.22  phase one. 
 75.23     (c) In phase two, the designer selection committee and the 
 75.24  county shall use the evaluation criteria in the RFP to determine 
 75.25  the design-build proposal to be the most advantageous and the 
 75.26  best value to the public.  Prior to award of a contract, the 
 75.27  designer selection committee and, if necessary, the county board 
 75.28  may require clarification from the design-builders to ensure 
 75.29  conformance of proposals to the RFP. 
 75.30     Sec. 59.  [383B.1582] [RFP FOR DESIGN-BUILD.] 
 75.31     During phase two, the county shall issue an RFP to the 
 75.32  design-builders on the short list.  The request must include: 
 75.33     (1) the scope of work, including (i) performance and 
 75.34  technical requirements, (ii) conceptual design, (iii) minimum

 76.11  construction; 
 76.12     (7) the requirement that a submitted proposal be segmented 
 76.13  into two parts, a technical proposal and a price proposal; 
 76.14     (8) the requirement that each proposal be in a separately 
 76.15  sealed, clearly identified package and include the date and time 
 76.16  of the submittal deadline; 
 76.17     (9) the requirement that the technical proposal include a 
 76.18  critical path method, bar schedule of the work to be performed, 
 76.19  or similar schematic; design plans and specifications; technical 
 76.20  reports; calculations; permit requirements; applicable 
 76.21  development fees; and other data requested in the RFP; 
 76.22     (10) the requirement that the price proposal contain all 
 76.23  design, construction, engineering, inspection, and 
 76.24  construction-related costs, and all other costs of any kind of 
 76.25  the proposed project; 
 76.26     (11) the date, time, and location of the public opening of 
 76.27  the sealed price proposals; 
 76.28     (12) a statement that "past performance" or "experience" 
 76.29  does not include the exercise or assertion of a person's legal 
 76.30  rights; and 
 76.31     (13) other information relevant to the project. 
 76.32     Sec. 60.  [383B.1583] [REPLACING TEAM MEMBERS.] 
 76.33     An individual or a design-build firm identified in a 
 76.34  response to an RFQ or RFP may not be replaced without the 
 76.35  written approval of the county board.  The county board may 
 76.36  revoke an awarded contract if an individual or a design-build 
 77.1   firm identified in a response to an RFQ or RFP is replaced 
 77.2   without the county board's written approval.  To qualify for the 
 77.3   approval, the written request must document that the proposed 
 77.4   replacement individual or design-build firm will be equal to or 
 77.5   better than that described in the response to the RFQ or RFP.  
 77.6   The county board shall use the criteria specified in the RFQ or 
 77.7   RFP to evaluate the request. 
 77.8      Sec. 61.  [383B.1584] [DESIGN-BUILD AWARD.] 
 77.9      The county board, after considering the recommendations of 
 77.10  the designer selection committee, shall award the design-build 
 77.11  contract to the proposer with the highest scored proposal based 
 77.12  on the evaluation criteria in the RFP.  The rationale for the 
 77.13  selection of the proposal must be stated at the time of the 
 77.14  contract award.  The county board may reject any or all 
 77.15  proposals, but must not do so to evade the other provisions and 
 77.16  policies of this section.  If the county board rejects all 
 77.17  proposals, it may then solicit new proposals after making 
 77.18  appropriate modifications to performance criteria, budget 
 77.19  constraints, or qualifications.  
 77.20     Sec. 62.  [383B.1585] [STIPULATED FEE.] 
 77.21     The county board, depending on the project's complexity and 
 77.22  scope and at the board's discretion for each project, may 
 77.23  determine that a stipulated fee be paid to each short-listed 
 77.24  responsible proposer who provides a responsive but unsuccessful 
 77.25  proposal.  If a stipulated fee is to be paid, it must be clearly 
 77.26  identified in the RFQ or RFP.  If the county board does not 
 77.27  award a contract, all short-listed proposers must receive the 
 77.28  stipulated fee.  If the county board cancels the contract before 
 77.29  reviewing the technical proposals, the county board shall award 
 77.30  each design-builder on the short list a stipulated minimum fee 
 77.31  as set out in the RFP.  The county board shall pay the 
 77.32  stipulated fee to each proposer within 90 days after the award 
 77.33  of the contract or the decision not to award a contract.  In 
 77.34  consideration for paying the stipulated fee, the county board 
 77.35  may use any ideas or information contained in the proposals in 
 77.36  connection with any contract awarded for the project or in 
 78.1   connection with a subsequent procurement, without any obligation 
 78.2   to pay any additional compensation to the unsuccessful 
 78.3   proposers.  Notwithstanding the other provisions of this 
 78.4   subdivision, an unsuccessful short-list proposer may elect to 
 78.5   waive the stipulated fee.  If an unsuccessful short-list 
 78.6   proposer elects to waive the stipulated fee, the county may not 
 78.7   use ideas and information contained in that proposer's 
 78.8   proposal.  Upon the request of the county, a proposer who waived 
 78.9   a stipulated fee may withdraw the waiver, in which case the 
 78.10  county board shall pay the stipulated fee to the proposer and 
 78.11  thereafter may use ideas and information in the proposer's 
 78.12  proposal. 
 78.13     Sec. 63.  [383B.1586] [EXPIRATION.] 
 78.14     Sections 383B.158 to 383B.1586 expire December 31, 2007, 
 78.15  and apply only to design-build contracts entered into on or 
 78.16  before January 1, 2008, for the Northwest busway and the Lowry 
 78.17  Avenue bridge. 
 78.18     Sec. 64.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 446A.07, 
 78.19  subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 78.20     Subd. 4.  [INTENDED USE PLAN.] (a) The pollution control

 78.24  the amounts available to the water pollution control revolving 
 78.25  fund, including a list of wastewater treatment and storm water 
 78.26  projects and all other eligible activities to be funded during 
 78.27  the fiscal year.  Information regarding eligible activities must 
 78.28  be submitted to the pollution control agency by the appropriate 
 78.29  state agency or department within 30 days of written 
 78.30  notification by the pollution control agency. 
 78.31     (b) To be eligible for placement on the intended use plan: 
 78.32     (1) a project must be listed on the pollution control 
 78.33  agency's project priority list; 
 78.34     (2) the applicant must submit a written request to the 
 78.35  public facilities authority, including a brief description of 
 78.36  the project, a project cost estimate and the requested loan 
 79.1   amount, and a proposed project schedule; and 
 79.2      (3) for a construction loan, the project must have a 
 79.3   facility plan approved by the pollution control agency. 
 79.4      (c) The pollution control agency shall annually provide to 
 79.5   the public facilities authority its project priority list of 
 79.6   wastewater and storm water projects to be considered for 
 79.7   funding.  The pollution control agency public facilities 
 79.8   authority may not submit the plan until it has received the 
 79.9   review and comment of the authority pollution control agency or 
 79.10  until 30 days have elapsed since the plan was submitted to 
 79.11  the authority pollution control agency, whichever occurs first.  
 79.12  In addition, the public facilities authority shall offer 
 79.13  municipalities seeking placement on the intended use plan an 
 79.14  opportunity to review and comment on the plan before it is 
 79.15  adopted.  The plan may be amended to add additional projects for 
 79.16  consideration for funding as it determines funds are available 
 79.17  and additional projects are able to proceed. 
 79.18     Sec. 65.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 446A.072, 
 79.19  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
 79.20     Subdivision 1.  [ESTABLISHMENT OF PROGRAM.] The authority 
 79.21  will establish a wastewater infrastructure funding program to

 79.25  Agriculture Rural Economic and Community Development's 
 79.26  (USDA/RECD) Water and Waste Disposal Loans and Grants program 
 79.27  for the design and planning, improvements to, and construction 
 79.28  of municipal wastewater treatment systems.  The purpose of the 
 79.29  program is to assist municipalities demonstrating financial need 
 79.30  in building cost-efficient projects to address existing 
 79.31  environmental or public health problems.  To implement the 
 79.32  program, the authority shall establish a wastewater 
 79.33  infrastructure fund to provide grants and loans for the purposes 
 79.34  authorized under title VI of the Federal Water Pollution Control 
 79.35  Act.  The fund shall be credited with all investment income from 
 79.36  the fund and all repayments of loans, grants, and penalties.

 80.3      Sec. 66.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 446A.072, 
 80.4   subdivision 3, is amended to read: 
 80.5      Subd. 3.  [PROGRAM ADMINISTRATION.] (a) The authority shall 
 80.6   provide supplemental assistance, as provided in subdivision 2, 
 80.7   5a to municipalities demonstrating financial need, as provided 
 80.8   in subdivision 4, whose projects have been certified to the 
 80.9   authority by the commissioner of the agency.  The authority 
 80.10  shall reserve supplemental assistance for projects in order of 
 80.11  their priority ranking established by the agency.: 
 80.12     (1) whose projects are listed on the agency's project 
 80.13  priority list; 
 80.14     (2) that demonstrate their projects are a cost-effective 
 80.15  solution to an existing environmental or public health problem; 
 80.16  and 
 80.17     (3) whose projects are approved by the USDA/RECD or 
 80.18  certified by the commissioner of the agency. 
 80.19     (b) For a municipality receiving grant funding from the 
 80.20  USDA/RECD, applications must be made to the USDA/RECD with 
 80.21  additional information submitted to the authority as required by 
 80.22  the authority.  Eligible project costs and affordability 
 80.23  criteria shall be determined by the USDA/RECD. 
 80.24     (c) For a municipality not receiving grant funding from the 
 80.25  USDA/RECD, application must be made to the authority on forms 
 80.26  prescribed by the authority for the water pollution control 
 80.27  revolving fund program with additional information as required

 80.29  agency shall: 
 80.30     (1) calculate the essential project component percentage 
 80.31  which must be multiplied by the total project cost to determine 
 80.32  the eligible project cost; and 
 80.33     (2) review and certify approved projects to the authority. 
 80.34     (d) At the time funds are appropriated under this section, 
 80.35  the authority shall reserve supplemental assistance for projects 
 80.36  in order of their rankings on the agency's project priority list 
 81.1   and in an amount based on their most recent cost estimates 
 81.2   submitted to the authority or the as-bid costs, whichever is 
 81.3   less. 
 81.4      [EFFECTIVE DATE.] This section is effective for funds 
 81.5   appropriated after January 1, 2002. 
 81.6      Sec. 67.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 446A.072, is 
 81.7   amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
 81.8      Subd. 5a.  [TYPE AND AMOUNT OF ASSISTANCE.] (a) For a 
 81.9   municipality receiving grant funding from the USDA/RECD, the 
 81.10  authority shall provide assistance in the form of a grant of up 
 81.11  to one-half of the eligible grant amount determined by 
 81.12  USDA/RECD.  A municipality may not receive a grant under this 
 81.13  paragraph for more than $4,000,000 or $15,000 per existing 
 81.14  connection, whichever is less, unless specifically approved by 
 81.15  law.  In the case of a sanitary district or other 
 81.16  multijurisdictional project for which the USDA/RECD is unable to 
 81.17  fully fund up to one-half of the eligible grant amount, the 
 81.18  authority may provide up to an additional $1,000,000 for each 
 81.19  additional municipality participating up to a maximum of 
 81.20  $8,000,000 or $15,000 per existing connection, whichever is 
 81.21  less, but not to exceed the maximum grant level determined by 
 81.22  the USDA/RECD as needed to keep the project affordable. 
 81.23     (b) For a municipality not receiving grant funding from the 
 81.24  USDA/RECD, the authority shall provide assistance in the form of 
 81.25  a loan for the eligible project costs that exceed five percent 
 81.26  of the market value of properties in the project service area.  
 81.27  A municipality may not receive a loan under this paragraph for 
 81.28  more than $4,000,000 or $15,000 per existing connection, 
 81.29  whichever is less, unless specifically approved by law.  In the 
 81.30  case of a sanitary district or other multijurisdictional

 88.36  and installation into an existing 
 88.37  municipal wastewater treatment system.  
 88.38  The project must be approved by the 
 88.39  pollution control agency and 
 88.40  demonstrate the application of existing 
 88.41  technology that has not been used 
 88.42  before in the treatment of municipal 
 88.43  wastewater, but has the potential to 
 88.44  improve the treatment of wastewater or 
 88.45  make the treatment process more cost 
 88.46  effective.
