 8        Sec.  11.4.  Contracts  which  by  their  nature  are not
 9    adapted to award by competitive bidding,  such  as,  but  not

16    district is the lessee, and contracts that combine design and
17    construction  shall not be subject to the competitive bidding

26    competitively  bid,  shall  be  let  according  to  a  formal
27    selection   process  established  by  rule.   That  selection
28    process shall: (i) require a published request for  proposals
29    (RFP);  (ii)  require  consideration  of price, but shall not
30    require that price  be  the  sole  consideration;  and  (iii)
31    provide   that   the  final  selection  process  may  include
