            property   interests,   and   services  by   state                 
            agencies.                                                          
                                                                               
                                1                                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
            HCS CS SB 212 (FIN)  was reported out of Committee                 
            with a "do pass" recommendation  and with a fiscal                 
            note  by  the  Department  of Administration,  the                 
            Department of Transportation and Public Facilities                 
            dated  2/09/94  and  a  zero  fiscal note  by  the                 
            Department of Administration.                                      
                                                                               
  SENATE BILL 212                                                              
                                                                               
       "An  Act relating  to  publications produced  by  state                 
       agencies and  to the procurement of  property, property                 
       interests, and services by state agencies."                             
                                                                               
  Representative  Brown referenced  Section #8  asking  if the                 
  intent of the legislation would be to provide regulations or                 
  procedures for a pilot program.                                              
                                                                               
  ROD  WILSON,  TECHNICAL   ENGINEER,  ENGINEERING   DIVISION,                 
  DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND PUBLIC FACILITIES  (DOTPF),                 
  replied  that  it  was  the  intent  of  the  Department  to                 
  establish regulations  through and  in conjunction with  the                 
  Department of  Administration  and  added  that  procurement                 
  information currently is  available through the regulations.                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  Representative Brown  pointed  out  that  Section  #8  would                 
  establish  an  Innovative  Construction Procurement  Methods                 
  Pilot Program within DOTPF for  a period of two years.   She                 
  thought more  time  would be  needed in  order to  establish                 
  innovative  methods  of regulations.    Representative Brown                 
  proceeded to ask how the bonus program would work.                           
                                                                               
  Mr.  Wilson  noted   that  a   bonus  would   be  used   for                 
  determination of an  award being  placed at the  end of  the                 
  program.  He  indicated that the  advantage would be to  not                 
  allow a  preference; the  federal government  also does  not                 
  allow preferences.                                                           
                                                                               
  Mr.  Wilson  commented  that Section  (b)  explains  current                 
  process granting an administrative benefit  to the State and                 
  would cut costs.  Discussion followed between Representative                 
  Brown  and  Mr.  Wilson  regarding  the  program's  economic                 
  benefit  to  Alaska.    Representative  Brown suggested  the                 
  program become a subsidy.                                                    
                                                                               
  DUGAN  PETTY,   DIRECTOR,  DIVISION  OF   GENERAL  SERVICES,                 
  DEPARTMENT  OF   ADMINISTRATION,  addressed   Representative                 
  Grussendorf's  question   regarding  Section   #5  and   the                 
  publication productions.  He  commented that state  agencies                 
  are defined in statute and that the cost  of the forms would                 
  not be  covered.  Representative Grussendorf  requested that                 
                                                                               
                                2                                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
  the Department  provide a  guaranteed performance bond  with                 
  the  legislation.    Mr.  Petty  understood  that  to  be  a                 
  procurement issue  and suggested  that it  should have  been                 
  included in the bidding process.                                             
                                                                               
  BRET THOMAS, (TESTIFIED VIA TELECONFERENCE), PRESIDENT, TIME                 
  FRAME INC., ANCHORAGE,  spoke in support of  the legislation                 
  pointing out that the State has not been capable of handling                 
  the changes occurring in reproduced materials.                               
                                                                               
  Representative Martin  MOVED to report  HCS CS SB  212 (L&C)                 
  out of  Committee with  individual recommendations  and with                 
  the accompanying fiscal notes.  There being NO OBJECTION, it                 
  was so ordered.
