Item C-105

Item C-105

1. The Department of Social Services is hereby granted approval to enter into new capital leases for any child support, regional, or day care office under the following circumstances: The lease is bid through the standard Request for Proposals process in cooperation with the Department of General Services; the Department of Accounts and the Department of Planning and Budget have determined that the lease is a capital or a capital outlay lease; the Department of Planning and Budget agrees that the time constraints in responding to the landlord's offer preclude a decision memorandum under § 4-4.01 n of this act; and the Department of General Services agrees that the proposed lease is the most cost-effective of the options available to the Commonwealth.

2. Such new lease or renewal may not exceed 20 years and may provide for the option for the Department or the Commonwealth to take possession of such facilities at the expiration of such leases. Any such agreement shall be subject to review and approval by the Department of General Services.
