In order to ensure safe construction and protect the investment of public funds, the Board of Education requires that licensed experts be employed to design and supervise the construction of district schools and other buildings. Instead of requiring bids for these services, the board shall pay fair and reasonable amounts warranted by the provider's qualifications and competence.

The board may require bids, however, whenever it determines that this would be in the public interest because the services needed are more of a technical nature and involve little professional judgment.
