Construction Procurement Handbook for Texas School Districts and Institutions of Higher Education.
Ford, Jeffrey A.; Salazar, Terry L.; White, Gary L.
Texas legislation allows public school districts to use a variety of contracting methods to obtain the "best value" for their construction projects. This resource document provides some of the basic framework regarding laws governing the award of construction contracts by school districts and institutions of higher education. Also provided are Contracting Method Summary Sheets that summarize the various authorized contracting methods. Specific topics for both public schools and higher education institutions address competitive bidding for construction services, competitive sealed proposals for construction services, construction manager-agent contracts, construction manager-at-risk contracts, design-build contracts, and job order contracts for facilities repair. Appendices contain the provisions of Texas legislation relative to construction contracting for school districts and higher education institutions. (GR)
