AS 36.30.305. Limited Competition Procurements.

(a) A construction contract under $100,000, or a contract for supplies, services, or professional services, may be awarded without competitive sealed bidding or competitive sealed proposals, in accordance with regulations adopted by the commissioner. A contract may be awarded under this section only when the chief procurement officer determines in writing that a situation exists that makes competitive sealed bidding or competitive sealed proposals impractical or contrary to the public interest, except that the attorney general may make the determination for services of legal counsel, and the commissioner of transportation and public facilities may make the determination for construction contracts under $100,000 or procurements for the state equipment fleet. Procurements under this section shall be made with competition that is practicable under the circumstance. Except for procurements of supplies, services, professional services, or construction that do not exceed the amount for small procurements under AS 36.30.320 (a), as applicable, the authority to make a determination required by this section may not be delegated.

(b) The using agency shall submit written evidence to support a determination under this section.

(c) Procurement requirements may not be artificially divided, fragmented, aggregated, or structured so as to constitute a purchase under this section or to circumvent the source selection procedures required by AS 36.30.100 - 36.30.270.

(d) Single source procurements may not be made under this section.

(e) Architectural, engineering, and land survey contracts under AS 36.30.270 may not be made under this section.
