Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 392-344-080 Construction documentsBids and contract provisions.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 28A.525.020.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 392-344-080 requires school districts to provide the office of superintendent of public instruction (OSPI) proof of insurance for school construction assistance program-funded school projects under construction. OSPI is considering amending this rule for the purpose of more accurately reflecting the correct insurance coverage required by OSPI. Currently, the rule requires school districts to demonstrate to OSPI that they carry commercial all risk property insurance as a condition to receiving school construction assistance program funding. As an alternative, OSPI is considering requiring evidence of builder's risk insurance, which provides coverage while a school is under construction.
Process for Developing New Rule: OSPI welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Scott Black, P.O. Box 47200, Olympia, WA 98504-7200, phone 360-725-6268, fax 360-586-3946, TTY 360-664-3631, email
