Contracts for the construction of any project shall be awarded by the authority upon
a competitive or negotiated basis, as it determines will most effectively serve the
purposes of this part. The authority may, by written contract, engage the services of the lessee or prospective
lessee of any project in the construction of such project and may provide in such
contract that the lessee or prospective lessee may act as an agent of, or an independent
contractor for, the authority for the performance of the functions described therein,
subject to such conditions and requirements consistent with the provisions of this
part as shall be prescribed in such contract, including such functions as the acquisition
of the site and other real property for such project; the preparation of plans, specifications,
and contract documents; the award of construction and other contracts upon a competitive
or negotiated basis; the construction of such project, or any part thereof, directly
by such lessee or prospective lessee; the inspection and supervision of construction;
the employment of engineers, architects, builders, and other contractors; and the
provisions of money to pay the cost thereof pending reimbursement by the authority. Any such contract may provide that the authority may, out of proceeds of bonds,
make advances to or reimburse the lessee or prospective lessee for its costs incurred
in the performance of such functions and shall set forth the supporting documents
required to be submitted to the authority and the reviews, examinations, and audits
that shall be required in connection therewith to assure compliance with the provisions
of this part and such contract.
