Page 65, after line 55, insert:
“D.  In administering this internal service fund, the Department of General Services may dedicate a full-time position to conduct fire and life safety code reviews for any institution of higher education that generates a high volume of capital outlay projects on a routine basis.  This dedicated reviewer shall report to the Director of the Bureau of Capital Outlay Management but may be located at the institution of higher education.  The cost of the dedicated reviewer shall be borne by the higher education institution.”

(This amendment is part of the General Assembly's efforts to delegate additional authority to institutions of higher education and to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government oversight. This amendment provides an alternative method for ensuring timely, third-party reviews of fire and life safety code compliance for capital projects at selected higher education institutions.)
