can you define minor remodeling
McKenzie Snow

"Please note that some HVAC upgrades may constitute “minor remodeling” and the Department’s applicable regulations regarding construction at 34 CFR §§ 76.600 and 75.600-75.618 would not apply. Minor remodeling means minor alterations in a previously completed building, for purposes associated with the coronavirus. The term also includes the extension of utility lines, such as water and electricity, from points beyond the confines of the space in which the minor remodeling is undertaken but within the confines of the previously completed building. The term does not include permanent building construction, structural alterations to buildings, building maintenance, or repairs. However, minor remodeling projects that constitute capital assets under the Uniform Guidance still require prior approval consistent with 2 CFR 200.439."

Three weeks ago I submitted 12 different Proposed ESSER Funded Construction Project sheets for preliminary conceptual approval of projects. I have not heard anything back from NHDOE on these. Any idea when you will address them? I cannot begin the engineering on them until you have and our window is getting shorter every day to design and complete these projects.

Mary, you can send the contract to our Bureau email (at the top of the chat) and we can review as Tim stated from a compliance standpoint and provide comments.

We currently have been upgrading our HVAC building automation system, it's being preformed by a small one man contractor. Does that require Davis Bacon as well?
