Delegation of Authority

Page  531, after line 41, insert:
"2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of §11-55, Code of Virginia, no approval of the Governor shall be required for contract modifications as specified therein for the pilot programs of the selected institutions of higher education referenced in paragraph 1., provided that contract modifications of such projects, including construction and architectural and engineering change orders, shall be approved by the Boards of Visitors, which may further delegate this authority to the President, a Vice President, or the individual responsible for facilities design and construction matters at the selected institution of higher education to act on its behalf."
Page 531, line 42, strike "2" and insert "3".

(This amendment allows the Boards of Visitors of the institutions of higher education included in the capital outlay decentralization pilot project (University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and the College of William and Mary) to delegate approval of project change orders to the administration of the institution. Currently, the Boards of Visitors of these institutions may not make this delegation, which may result in delays in nongeneral fund projects under the decentralization pilot program.)
