Corrections, Department of

Page 429, following line 14, insert:
"H. In order to equitably reimburse local governments for the costs of managing local and regional jail projects, the Board of Corrections shall amend Standard 2.9.K.3.e of the Standards for Planning, Design, Construction and Reimbursement of Local Correctional Facilities to provide for the reimbursement of the State share of salaries and fringe benefit costs of local government employees whose sole responsibility is the oversight and management of capital construction projects by June 30, 2010.  Such costs shall be reimbursable in the same manner as other eligible costs authorized by the Board of Corrections for such local or regional jail project.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that this provision shall be retroactive to all local and regional jail projects that were completed on or after July 1, 2008."

(This amendment closes a loophole in the Board of Corrections standards authorizing reimbursement of the State share of project and construction management costs for the construction of local and regional jails, when contracted out to the private sector, but not for the same type of costs when responsibility for project and construction management rests with local government employees employed for that specific purpose.)
