AS 19.40.020. Contractual Authority.
- (a) Subject to (b) of this section, the department may contract in accordance with AS 36.30 for the construction of a secondary highway from the Yukon
River to the Arctic Ocean. The provisions of AS 36.10 govern in
employment practices on all work authorized by this chapter.
- (b) The authority granted under (a) of this section may not be exercised until the state enters into a contract with the
participants in the Trans Alaska Pipeline System or other organization formed for the purpose of transporting oil by
pipeline from the North Slope (that area of Alaska lying north of 68 degrees latitude). The contract shall provide for
reimbursement to the state by the participants, jointly and severally, in the Trans Alaska Pipeline System or other
organization formed for the purpose of transporting oil by pipeline, of the full amount of the highway's cost of
construction plus interest on the state's expenditures at the rate of seven and one-half percent per year. Complete
reimbursement together with interest shall be made within five years from the date of the contract. The state may,
with the agreement of the participants, elect to construct an oil pipeline from the North Slope. In that event, the
provisions of this subsection requiring reimbursement do not apply.
- (c) The contract with the participants must include additional terms and conditions that are in the best interests of the
state. Any advance payments made under the contract shall be deposited in a special account which will be used for
disbursements to the contractor charged with construction of the highway. Disbursements to the contractor shall be
made on order of the commissioner of transportation and public facilities on presentation of a proper voucher or the
presentation of a voucher by an employee of the department authorized in writing to certify as to such payment.
