Page 223, after line 60, insert:
"W. Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, including by not limited to the definition of “qualifying project” provided in § 56-575.1, Code of Virginia, the Governor or his designee may authorize any state agency to purchase goods or services aimed at increasing state government productivity or efficiency, including methods of resolving disputes by means other than litigation, using the procurement procedures outlined in the Public-Private Educational Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002, codified at § 56-575.1 et seq., Code of Virginia."

(This amendment adds language which allows the Commonwealth to utilize Public-Private Partnership procurement to acquire services aimed at resolving disputes using methods other than litigation.)
