The 84th Legislature authorized $581.2 million in funding for Phase I of the Project. Phase I includes two office buildings; a three-block Texas Mall,
which will be a tree-lined walkway on Congress Avenue between 16th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard; a five-level underground parking garage
under the new Texas Mall; and renovations and expansion of the existing chilled water plant and new utility tunnels. At the completion of Phase I, the new
buildings and parking garages will be capable of accommodating approximately 3,600 employees and approximately 3,800 parking spaces. For this report, auditors
reviewed all or portions of the Agency’s contracting processes for six procurements. Those procurements resulted in five contracts and five contract amendments.
