Sec. 22. (a) To prevent unnecessary expense and duplication of functions, and to promote uniform and effective administration of relocation assistance programs for displaced persons under this chapter, an agency required by this chapter to make relocation payments to displaced persons or to establish relocation assistance advisory programs may enter into contract with an individual, firm, limited liability company, or corporation for services in connection with the programs, or may carry out its functions under this chapter through any federal, state, or local governmental agency or instrumentality having an established organization for conducting relocation assistance programs.  The contract may delegate authority to make a determination required to be made by the agency head with respect to eligibility for an amount of relocation assistance payments, availability of adequate replacement dwellings, or other matters required to be determined under this chapter, subject to review of determinations by the agency head and as provided in section 33 of this chapter.
