New Legislative Resources Available to Advocate for Design-Build



To strengthen DBIA’s advocacy efforts and support our Regions at the state level, DBIA has released a Guide for Enactment of Design-Build Legislation and accompanying Model Legislation Addendum as well as the 2023 Design-Build State Statute Report (SSR).

 

The new Guide for Enactment of Design-Build Legislation establishes a statutory framework for design-build that aligns with DBIA’s Best Practices. It provides guidance on achieving enactment of a statute, law or ordinance authorizing the use of design-build procurement by state or local governing agencies. The model language is adaptable for various jurisdictions and includes strategic planning for successful legislative initiatives. The Addendum to the guide provides sample model legislative language for Best Value Selection (BVS) and Progressive Design-Build (PDB), which can be used as drafted or modified to meet the specific requirements of the state government or legislators.

 


These free resources are now published in the DBIA Bookstore and are available for download.
