AS 36.90.049. Maintenance of State Marine Vessels.
- (a) A marine vessel owned by the state shall be maintained and repaired at a shipyard facility located in the state unless
the commissioner of the department that operates the marine vessel determines in writing that there is no shipyard
facility located in the state that is equipped or qualified to perform the particular maintenance or repair required,
or, after taking into consideration the Alaska bidder preference set out in AS 36.30.170
and the interport differential, that the proposed cost of the maintenance or repair work is unreasonable. A detailed
list of the costs and factors considered in calculating the interport differential must be provided to each person who
expresses an interest in submitting a bid to perform maintenance or repair work on a marine vessel owned by the state.
- (b) The competitive bid provisions of AS 36.30 do not apply to a
contract for the maintenance or repair of a marine vessel owned by the state if the contract is awarded to a shipyard
facility in the state.
- (c) The commissioner of the department that operates a marine vessel shall adopt regulations establishing the criteria
that the department shall use to determine whether the cost of maintenance or repair work at a shipyard facility
located in the state is reasonable under (a) of this section. The commissioner of the department that operates a marine
vessel shall designate by regulation the designated base port for each vessel operated by the department; however, the
designated base port for marine vessels of the Alaska marine highway system is Ketchikan for those vessels primarily
serving that portion of the state east of the longitude of Icy Cape and is Seward for those vessels primarily serving
the remainder of the state. A vessel's designated base port is the vessel's delivery and redelivery port.
- (d) The commissioner of the department that operates a marine vessel shall adopt regulations establishing the criteria
that the commissioner shall use in calculating the interport differential under this section. The criteria for
calculating the interport differential must include costs incurred from the time that the vessel leaves the vessel's
designated base port to enter the shipyard facility until the time that the vessel returns to the designated base port
from the shipyard facility.
- (e) In this section,
- (1) "commissioner of the department that operates the marine vessel" includes the president of the University of Alaska
with regard to a vessel operated by the university;
- (2) "interport differential" includes all costs related to the performance of the maintenance or repair work of a marine
vessel at a shipyard, including travel costs incurred moving the vessel from its designated base port to the shipyard,
additional fuel consumption, cost of consumables including lubricants and other engine and deck stores, maintenance
costs incurred during running time, cost of crew transfers including airfare between the designated base port and the
shipyard, wages in travel status, crew room and board, and other interport costs identified by the commissioner of the
department that operates the marine vessel.
