"A. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) and the Department of General Services (DGS) shall develop and deliver a plan to provide capital project options for a new ABC warehouse and ABC administrative offices.

B. The plan will be a comprehensive plan for an ABC warehouse and administrative offices.  At a minimum the plan will include real estate development approaches to achieve operationally ready, “turn-key”, cost effective and efficient solutions to meet ABC's operational and business requirements.  Solutions may include, but not be limited to, lease or construction of new facilities, acquiring existing facilities through lease or purchase, a combination of new construction and existing facilities, and must include at least one option for using the existing location for the new or retrofitted warehouse and administrative office building.

C.  In developing a new construction option for office space, an infill design concept should be considered, which initially would accommodate not more than a ten percent increase in central office staff beyond the number currently located in the headquarters building, with further growth in staff beyond the ten percent to be accommodated through less-expensive infill construction.

D. The Department of General Services (DGS) shall analyze and include options in the ABC plan for the use of state-owned real property declared surplus and existing underutilized state-owned real property.  

E.  Private sector developer options are to be included in the ABC plan.  DGS is tasked and authorized to publicly solicit proposals (i.e. Request For Proposal, Request For Information or by other public solicitation method), to evaluate requirements in paragraphs B and D of this item, from the private sector developer community interested in providing solutions that meet ABC's operational, business, and cost effectiveness and efficiency requirements.  

F. ABC is tasked to include in the plan financing options for the capital project options.

G. The plan shall be delivered to the Governor, Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, and the Six-Year Capital Outlay Plan Advisory Committee (§ 2.2-1516) no later than November 1, 2017.

H.  Funds authorized to the Department of General Services for this item may be used to accomplish the necessary tasks to prepare, develop, complete, and execute the ABC plan."


(This amendment provides funding to plan for a new ABC warehouse and administrative office.)
