Public Hearing Notice

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held at noon on Wednesday, May 28, 2008 in Room 310 of the Husky Union Building (HUB), at the University of Washington, Seattle campus. The purpose of the hearing is to allow all interested persons an opportunity to present their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed new Chapter 478-350 WAC, “Alternative Contracting Process for the University of Washington.”

The new chapter would provide a fair, open, and efficient contracting method by which the University of Washington may, under limited circumstances, move expeditiously and efficiently to contract for capital projects in a way that protects the best interests of the University and assures the delivery of quality work and products at a reasonable price under the most advantageous terms. RCW 28B.20.140 provides the University of Washington with a statutory basis for these Washington Administrative Code rules, concerning contracts for erection of buildings or improvements.

Advance copies of the proposed WAC rules may be obtained by contacting Rebecca Goodwin Deardorff, Director of Rules Coordination, Box 355509, Seattle, WA 98195 or by phone at 206–543–9219. Copies will also be available at the public hearing.
