  • Designer Selection Board

“IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE CHANGE: Please be advised that on June 15, 2018, Chapter 113 of the Acts of 2018, An Act Providing for Capital Facility Repairs and Improvements for the Commonwealth, was signed into law by Governor Baker. The legislation in part updated the thresholds for when the designer selection process is to be implemented.

With these changes, effective immediately, a contract for design services is exempt from the selection procedure required if the design fee under the contract is less than $30,000 or the estimated construction cost of the project for which the design services are required is less than $300,000. The changes, which apply to all public agencies, authorities and municipalities in Massachusetts, were made to reflect the loss of purchasing power since the last time they were raised in 1990.”
