Design-build public works projects. Provides that a public agency may not require an offeror to appear in person more than three times before the technical review committee for a design-build contract. Requires a public agency that proposes a public project for which a referendum is to be held to wait until after the referendum is completed to issue a request for proposals for the public project. Limits the deliverables required for a qualitative proposal submitted in response to a request for proposals. Repeals the provision in current law requiring the governing body of a public agency to give prior authorization to use design-build contracting. Amends the definition of "public agency" to include conservancy districts established for water supply or sewage treatment. Amends the definition of "public project" to include improvements other than buildings. Provides that the meetings of a technical review committee for a public project comprised entirely of employees of the public agency undertaking the public project are not open to the public. Allows a state educational institution to use the combined request for qualifications and request for proposals for all design-build projects (combined request procedure). Allows a public agency other than a state educational institution to use the combined request procedure for public projects having an initial estimated cost that does not exceed $5,000,000. Provides that a technical review committee must give a written comprehensive score for each qualitative proposal received in response to a request for proposals, which includes: (1) an explanation of the scoring methodology; (2) for each factor used in determining the composite score of the qualitative proposal, the scores awarded by each member of the technical review committee, the resulting technical review committee score, and the resulting weighted score, if applicable; and (3) the composite score calculated for the qualitative proposal.
