41-2546. Multiterm contracts

A. Unless otherwise provided by law, a contract for materials or services may be entered into for a period of time up to five years and a contract for job-order-contracting construction services may also be entered into for a period of time up to five years, as deemed to be in the best interest of this state, if the term of the contract and conditions of renewal or extension, if any, are included in the solicitation and monies are available for the first fiscal period at the time of contracting. A contract may be entered into for materials or services for a period of time exceeding five years if, under rules adopted pursuant to this chapter, the director determines in writing that such a contract would be advantageous to this state. Payment and performance obligations for succeeding fiscal periods are subject to the availability and appropriation of monies.

B. Before the use of a multiterm contract, it shall be determined in writing that:

1. Estimated requirements cover the period of the contract and are reasonable and continuing.

2. Such a contract will serve the best interests of this state by encouraging effective competition or otherwise promoting economies in state procurement.

C. If monies are not appropriated or otherwise made available to support continuation of performance in a subsequent fiscal period, the contract shall be cancelled and the contractor may only be reimbursed for the reasonable value of any nonrecurring costs incurred but not amortized in the price of the materials or services delivered under the contract or which are otherwise not recoverable. The cost of cancellation may be paid from any appropriations available for such purposes.
