    4  insert:
    5         (7)(a) A “contractor” as defined in s. 337.165(1)(d) or his
    6  or her “affiliate” as defined in s. 337.165(1)(a) qualified with
    7  the department under this section may not also qualify under s.
    8  287.055 or s. 337.105 to provide testing services, construction,
    9  engineering, and inspection services to the department. This
   10  limitation does not apply to any design-build prequalification
   11  under s. 337.11(7) and does not apply when the department
   12  otherwise determines by written order entered at least 30 days
   13  before advertisement that the limitation is not in the best
   14  interests of the public with respect to a particular contract
   15  for testing services, construction, engineering, and inspection
   16  services. This subsection does not authorize a contractor to
   17  provide testing services, or provide construction, engineering,
   18  and inspection services, to the department in connection with a
   19  construction contract under which the contractor is performing
   20  any work.

   22  contrary, on a project administered by a local government which
   23  is entirely or partially funded by the Department of
   24  Transportation, the entity performing design and the entity
   25  performing construction, engineering, and inspection services
   26  may not be the same.
