01 NCAC 30G .0102          POLICY

Generally, it is the policy of the SBC that the public=s interest is typically best served by the letting of public construction contracts pursuant to the regular statutory procedures, particularly the provisions of G.S. 143-128.  Nevertheless, in addition to those situations when a project cannot be completed using the standard methods, the SBC will recognize certain extraordinary circumstances that are appropriate, in the public's interest, and will justify an exemption from the methods of contracting authorized under G.S. 143-128.  Such extraordinary circumstances must be created by some unusual or unforeseen occurrence or situation and includes those situations set forth in 1 NCAC 30G .0105(b); any request made for an exemption as a result of such extraordinary circumstance must demonstrate to the SBC that requisite justification exists to obtain the exemption.
