When practicable, notice may include

(1) publication in a newspaper calculated to reach prospective bidders;

(2) notices posted in public places within the area where the work is to be performed or the material furnished; and

(3) notices mailed to all active prospective contractors on the appropriate list maintained under AS 36.30.050 .

(b) Failure to comply with the notice requirements of this section does not invalidate a bid or the award of a contract. If the state fails to substantially comply with the requirements of (a) of this section, the state is liable for damages caused by that failure.
