"1. The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, in consultation with the Department of General Services, shall construct the replacement of the current Department of Game and Inland Fisheries headquarters.  The project may be completed using either a) a construction manager at risk  agreement, b) an agreement under the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002 (§ 56-575.1 et seq., Code of Virginia), or c) a design-build process.  However, any such agreement or contract must first be approved by the Director, Department of General Services.  In addition, the cost of any such agreement shall not exceed $10 million.
2.  This project shall be constructed on existing state-owned property, with priority given to property owned by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF) or the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).  Such property should allow for the co-location of the new headquarters with a DGIF or DCR facility in order to allow for shared infrastructure and maximize access for customers.  In addition, the project size will comply with the Department of General Services' space guidelines.
3. Prior to entering into any contract or agreement and no later than October 1, 2009, the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Department of General Services shall jointly report to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, on the project options under consideration to include project cost, project size and project location."

(This amendment revises the proposed replacement of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries headquarters to ensure that the project complies with current space standards and utilizes existing state property for a location.)
