Section 16352

Notwithstanding Section 13340, any augmentation of an appropriation for a state public works project from the General Fund or any other fund in the State Treasury from which a capital outlay appropriation has been authorized for acquisition, design, construction, or equipping of a state public works project is hereby appropriated, without regard to fiscal years. The augmentation shall be in an amount sufficient to provide for payment of those public works projects where the project cannot proceed because the bids received are in excess of the estimate, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 10125 of the Public Contract Code, or the estimate otherwise exceeds the amount available. Augmentations for a state public works project are subject to the limitations in Sections 13332.11 and 13332.19 and shall be made pursuant to executive orders of the Director of Finance upon approval of the State Public Works Board.
