The public agency responsible for the new construction or renovation of a public facility shall submit a copy of the life cycle cost analysis for review by the commissioner who shall consult with the department. If the public agency is also a state agency under section 7D.34, comments by the department or the commissioner, including any recommendation for changes in the analysis, shall, within thirty days of receipt of the analysis, be forwarded in writing to the public agency. If either the department or the commissioner disagrees with any aspects of the life cycle cost analysis, the public agency affected shall timely respond in writing to the commissioner and the department. The response shall indicate whether the agency intends to implement the recommendations and, if the agency does not intend to implement them, the public agency shall present its reasons. The reasons may include, but are not limited to, a description of the purpose of the facility or renovation, preservation of historical architectural features, architectural and site considerations, and health and safety concerns.
Within thirty days of receipt of the response of the public agency affected, the department, the commissioner, or both, shall notify in writing the public agency affected of the department's, the commissioner's, or both's agreement or disagreement with the response. In the event of a disagreement, the department, the commissioner, or both, shall at the same time transmit the notification of disagreement with response and related papers to the executive council for resolution pursuant to section 7D.34. The life cycle cost analysis process, including submittal and approval, and implementation exemption requests pursuant to section 470.8, shall be completed prior to the letting of contracts for the construction or renovation of a facility.
