  393.358.  Planned infrastructure projects, qualification process for contractors — definitions — requirements — report to general assembly. — 1.  For purposes of this section, the following terms shall mean:

  (1)  "Commission", the Missouri public service commission established under section 386.040;

  (2)  "Water corporation", a corporation with more than one thousand Missouri customers that otherwise meets the definition of water corporation in section 386.020.

  2. Water corporations shall develop a qualification process open to all contractors seeking to provide construction and construction-related services for planned infrastructure projects on the water corporation's distribution system.  The water corporation shall specify qualification requirements and goals for contractors seeking to perform such work, including but not limited to experience, performance criteria, safety record and policies, technical expertise, scheduling needs and available resources, supplier diversity and insurance requirements.  Contractors that meet the qualification requirements shall be eligible to participate in a competitive bidding process for providing construction and construction-related services for planned infrastructure projects on the water corporation's distribution system, and the contractor making the lowest and best bid shall be awarded such contract.  For contractors not qualifying through the competitive bid process, the water corporation, upon request from the contractor, shall provide information from the process in which the contractor can be informed as to how to be better positioned to qualify for such bid opportunities in the future.  Nothing in this section shall be construed as requiring any water corporation to use third parties instead of its own employees to perform such work, to use the contractor qualification or competitive bidding process in the case of an emergency project, or to terminate any existing contract with a contractor prior to its expiration.

  3.  Within thirty days after August 28, 2018, and with the filing of a general rate proceeding initiated by the water corporation, the water corporation shall file a statement with the commission confirming it has established a qualification process meeting the requirements of this section and that such process is used for no less than twenty percent of the corporation's external expenditures for planned infrastructure projects on the water corporation's distribution system.  The commission shall have the authority to verify the statements to ensure compliance with this section.

  4.  By December 31, 2020, the commission shall submit a report to the general assembly on the effects of this section, including water corporation compliance, the costs of performing planned infrastructure projects prior to the implementation of this section compared to after the implementation of this section, and any other information regarding the process established under this section that the commission deems necessary.
