(a) To ensure that community college districts are able to effectively exercise the option of utilizing the Field Act or the California Building Standards Code, as provided in Section 81052, and construct buildings safely, cost effectively, and in a timely manner, the Department of General Services shall develop and submit, in consultation with the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, by June 1, 2009, to the California Building Standards Commission proposed building standards for adoption as part of the California Building Standards Code that will govern the construction, reconstruction, modification, or expansion of school buildings of a community college district as provided in Section 81052, if the community college district elects not to utilize the Field Act. The Department of General Services shall review and include, where appropriate, in these standards the standards that govern the California State University. The proposed building standards shall provide for independent plan review and oversight to be performed by the Department of General Services. The standards shall become effective 30 days after adoption by the California Building Standards Commission.
(b) The Department of General Services shall be responsible for plan reviews consistent with Section 81133.
