N.J. Admin. Code § 7:22-7.12 - Allowance for planning and design

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

(a) For projects for which a Level 1 or Level 2 environmental review is required in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:22-10.4 and 10.5, respectively, this section provides the method the Department will use to determine both the estimated and final allowance under N.J.A.C. 7:22-6.34 planning and design. The Pinelands grant or loan agreement will include an estimate of the allowance.
(b) The Pinelands Infrastructure Trust share of the allowance may be up to 100 percent of the allowance and shall be based upon the percentage of the Pinelands Infrastructure Trust share of the allowable building cost.
(c) The allowance is not intended to reimburse the recipient for costs actually incurred for planning or design. Rather, the allowance is intended to assist in defraying those costs. Under this procedure, questions of equity (that is, reimbursement on a dollar-for-dollar basis) will not be appropriate.
(d) The estimated and final allowance will be determined in accordance with this section and Table 1 below. In the event that the recipient received a Federal grant or a Pinelands grant or loan for facilities planning, the amount of the allowance is computed by subtracting the amount of the other State or Federal funding for facilities planning funding from the appropriate allowance computed using Table 1.
(e) The initial allowable building cost is the initial allowable cost of erecting, altering, remodeling, improving, or extending wastewater treatment facilities, whether accomplished through subagreement or force account. Specifically, the initial allowable building cost is the allowable cost of the following:
1. The initial award amount of all prime subagreements for building the project;
2. The initial amounts approved for force account work performed in lieu of awarding a subagreement for building the project;
3. The purchase price of eligible real property.
(f) The estimated allowance is to be based on the estimate of the initial allowable building cost.
(g) The final allowance will be determined one time only for each project, based on the initial allowable building cost, and will not be adjusted for subsequent cost increases or decreases.
(h) The recipient may request payment of 50 percent of the Pinelands Infrastructure Trust share of the estimated allowance immediately after the Pinelands Infrastructure Trust loan award. Final payment of the Pinelands Infrastructure Trust share of the allowance may be requested in the first disbursement after the recipient has awarded all prime subagreements for building the project, received the Department's approval for force account work, and completed the acquisition of all eligible real property.
(i) The allowance does not include architect or engineering services provided during the building of the project, e.g., reviewing bids, checking shop drawings, reviewing change orders, making periodic visits to job sites, etc. Architect or engineering services during the building of the project are allowable costs subject to this regulation and the Local Public Contracts Law (N.J.S.A. 40A:11-1 et seq.) or the New Jersey Wastewater Treatment Privatization Act (N.J.S.A. 58:27-1 et seq.).
