136F.36 Technical college carpentry program construction authority.

Subdivision 1. Authority to acquire, develop, and sell real property for instructional purposes. For the purpose of instructional construction by technical colleges, the board may purchase or otherwise acquire real property that it does not intend to use as a permanent educational site. The board may, upon the terms and conditions it sets, develop and sell real property acquired under this section. Sale shall be for fair market value. Where real property acquired under this section cannot be sold for fair market value, the board may lease the real property under the terms and conditions it sets. The board may also contract for the use of real property it does not own. Where the board makes improvements to real property it does not own, the landowner shall compensate the board for the fair market value of the board's contribution to the improvements. No other authorizing legislation or legislative approval is required for an acquisition, improvement, or sale under this section. Proceeds from the sale, lease, or improvement of real property under this section are appropriated to the board.

Subd. 2. Exemptions. The sale requirements of chapters 92 and 94 do not apply to this section. The board shall develop policies for leasing requirements and construction supervision. The board will normally competitively bid contracts related to instructional construction but may negotiate contracts without competitive bidding where it deems appropriate.

Subd. 3. Warranties. The board may, in its discretion, offer the warranties contained in chapter 327A.

Subd. 4. Storage and retention of documents. Notwithstanding section 16A.58, the board may store and retain at the respective technical college original documents from carpentry program transactions, including but not limited to deeds, abstracts of title, and certificates of title.
