(a) The local school district shall apply such portions of the total cost of any school
construction improvement authorized by a school construction bond authorization act
as shall be necessary to provide for the cost of auditing such school construction
improvement, but in no event shall such portion exceed 1/2 percent of such total cost. The Auditor of Accounts shall be responsible for conducting or having conducted
such audit subject to § 2906(c) and (d) and §§ 2907, 2908 and 2909 of this title, as amended.
(b) The local school district shall allocate such portion of the total cost of major
school construction improvements for which funds are appropriated by an authorization
act as shall be necessary to provide for the cost of inspecting such school construction
improvement. The local school district may also allocate a portion of the funds appropriated
for minor school improvements for such inspection services.
(c) The local school district shall let contracts for inspection of school construction
improvements. In contracting for the inspection of major or minor school construction improvements,
the local school district shall give first preference to an experienced and able Delaware
organization offering to provide such inspection services on a nonprofit, at-cost
basis. Such contracts shall not be deemed public works contracts as defined in Chapter
69 of this title, as amended. If no such organization is able or willing to perform such specialized service on
such nonprofit, at-cost basis, then the local school district may contract for such
services with profit-making organizations subject to Chapter 69 of this title.
