THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, REPRESENTED IN

SENATE AND ASSEMBLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

 

   Section 1. NRS 338.1906 is hereby amended to read as follows:

   338.1906  1.  Upon request by or consultation with an officer or

 employee of the state who is responsible for the budget of a department,

 board, commission, agency or other entity of the state, the appropriate

 energy retrofit coordinator may request the approval of the state board of

 examiners to advertise a request for proposals to retrofit a building, or any

 portion thereof, that is occupied by the department, board, commission,

 agency or other entity, to make the use of energy in the building, or

 portion thereof, more efficient.

   2.  Upon approval of the state board of examiners, the coordinator shall

 prepare a request for proposals for the retrofitting of one or more

 buildings, or any portion thereof, which includes:

   (a) The name and location of the coordinator;

   (b) A brief description of the requirements for the initial audit of the use

 of energy and the retrofitting;

   (c) Where and how specifications of the requirements for the initial

 audit of the use of energy and the retrofitting may be obtained;

   (d) The date and time not later than which proposals must be received

 by the coordinator; and

   (e) The date and time when responses will be opened.

   3.  The request for proposals must be published in at least one

 newspaper of general circulation in the state.

   4.  After receiving the proposals but before making a decision on the

 proposals, the coordinator shall consider:

   (a) The best interests of the state;

   (b) The experience and financial stability of the persons submitting the

 proposals;

   (c) Whether the proposals conform with the terms of the request for

 proposals;

   (d) The prices of the proposals; and

   (e) Any other factor disclosed in the request for proposals.

   5.  The coordinator shall determine the relative weight of each factor

 before a request for proposals is advertised. The weight of each factor

 must not be disclosed before the date proposals are required to be

 submitted to the coordinator.


   6.  After reviewing the proposals, if the coordinator determines that

sufficient energy could be saved to justify retrofitting the building or

 buildings, or portion thereof, the coordinator shall select the best proposal

 and request the approval of the state board of examiners to award the

 contract. The request for approval must include the proposed method of

 financing the audit and retrofit, which may include an installment contract,

 a shared savings contract or any other contract for a reasonable financing

 arrangement. Such a contract may commit the state to make payments

 beyond the biennium in which the contract is executed, but the interest due

 on any debt created pursuant to this section must be paid at least

 semiannually, payments must be made on the principal at least annually

 and the debt must be fully repaid on or before May 1, 2013.

   7.  Before approving a retrofit pursuant to this section, the state board

 of examiners shall evaluate any projects that would utilize shared savings

 as a method of payment or any method of financing that would commit the

 state to make payments beyond the biennium in which the contract is

 executed to ensure that:

   (a) The amount of energy to be saved will likely justify the cost of the

 retrofit;

   (b) The state is likely to continue to occupy the building for the entire

 period required to recoup the cost of the retrofit in energy savings; and

   (c) The limitation set forth in subsection 9 will not be exceeded.

   8.  Upon approval of the state board of examiners, the coordinator shall

 execute the contract and notify:

   (a) The state board of examiners of the total amount of money

 committed by the contract per year; and

   (b) Each officer or employee who is responsible for the budget of a

 department, board, commission, agency or other entity which occupies a

 portion of a building that will be retrofitted of the amount of money it will

 be required to pay annually for its portion of the retrofit.

   9.  The total amount of money committed beyond the biennium for all

 contracts executed pursuant to this section must not exceed [$5,000,000]

 $15,000,000 at any one time.

   10.  The legislature hereby pledges that a tax will be levied to pay the

 principal and interest on any indebtedness resulting from a contract

 executed pursuant to this section as they become due if the required

 payments will not be made by the entity that executed the contract from its

 budgeted accounts and the proceeds from any such taxes are hereby

 specially appropriated for this purpose.

   11.  NRS 338.1385 does not apply to a project for which a request for

 proposals is advertised and the contract is awarded pursuant to the

 provisions of this section.

   Sec. 2. There is hereby appropriated from the state general fund to the

 State Public Works Board the sum of $14,000,472 to support the board in
