Virginia Administrative Code

Part I. General Information

6VAC35-30-10. Introduction.

Section 16.1-309.5 of the Code of Virginia requires the Board of Juvenile Justice and the Governor to evaluate all plans for, specifications of, and requests for reimbursement from a locality or localities for the construction, enlargement, purchase, or renovation of projects governed by this chapter. No reimbursements for costs and construction for such projects shall be made unless the plans, specifications, and construction are approved by the board and the Governor in accordance with the provisions contained herein.

Section 16.1-309.9 of the Code of Virginia further mandates the board to approve minimum standards for the construction and equipment of detention homes and other facilities governed by this chapter. Any such project shall be subject to this regulation and all applicable statutes, regulations, and guidance documents, including, but not limited to, the following:

1. The Virginia Public Procurement Act, Chapter 43 (§ 2.2-4300 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia;

2. The Construction and Professional Services Manual (CPSM), October 2004, issued by the Department of General Services, Division of Engineering and Building;

3. The Step-by-Step Procedures for Approval and Reimbursement for Local Facility Construction, Enlargement, and Renovation, March 2001, issued by the Department of Juvenile Justice; and

4. The Agency Procurement and Surplus Property Manual (1VAC30-130), issued by the Department of General Services, Division of Purchases and Supply.

Such projects are best accomplished as a cooperative venture between a locality or localities and the Department of Juvenile Justice. Using regulations promulgated by the board and by working together as partners from project planning through project construction and program implementation, the locality or localities and the department ensure that the optimum number of children are provided high quality services at a minimum cost to the locality or localities and to the Commonwealth.
