N.J. Admin. Code § 7:22-6.32 - Preaward costs

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) The Department shall not consider allowable those costs incurred for building performed prior to closing the grant or loan for the project, unless the local government unit has met the requirements as specified in (a)1 or 2 below:
1. For allowable building costs, if the local government unit has met (a)1i through iii or (a)1iv:
i. The local government unit has submitted items required at 7:22-6.11(d)3 through 20, to the Department prior to the advertisement of any contract for which cost reimbursement is being sought.
ii. The local government unit has not advertised any contract or any addendum thereto, for which cost reimbursement is being sought, without the authorization to advertise the contracts or any addendum thereto being given by the Department.
iii. The local government unit has not awarded any contract for which cost reimbursement is being sought without the authorization to award the contracts being given by the Department.
iv. The local government unit has submitted items required at 7:22-6.11(d)3 through 20 to the Department prior to the issuance of a notice to proceed for building the project and has met the provisions of the New Jersey Wastewater Treatment Privatization Act (58:27-1 et seq.) or other applicable procurement method authorized by State law.
2. In emergencies or instances where delay could result in significant cost increases or significant environmental impairment, the Department may approve preliminary building activities such as procurement of major equipment requiring long lead times, minor sewer rehabilitation, acquisition of allowable land or advance building of minor portions of wastewater treatment facilities. However, advance approval shall not be given until after the Department reviews and approves an environmental assessment and any specific documents necessary to adequately evaluate the proposed action.
(b) If the Department approves preliminary building activities, such approval is not an actual or implied commitment of Pinelands Infrastructure Trust funds and the local government unit proceeds at its own financial risk. The local government unit shall receive cost reimbursement of approved activities only upon receiving legislative approval in the form of an appropriations act and closing a Pinelands grant or loan for the project.
(c) Any procurement is subject to the requirements of applicable State law.
