The Capital Construction Process regulation (702 KAR 4:160) has been revised, effective September 6, 2013. A link to the revision is available here.
Current construction projects that are in progress with an approved BG-1 do not have to resubmit signed contracts or previously approved forms. Projects in progress should use the new forms as the project enters upcoming phases. All new construction projects should follow the revised regulation.
KDE is working with AIA to provide KDE-versions of the standard contracts which will be available through AIA’s Documents on Demand. This would eliminate the need for KDE Amendments to the standard contracts. In the interim, construction projects should continue to use AIA contracts with the KDE Amendments listed below. KDE will provide a communication to districts and construction project stakeholders once these KDE-versions are available on AIA’s Documents on Demand web application.
