II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The scope of this project is to provide the design through construction documents for a new 40,000 sf warehouse facility for the Department of Agriculture Commodity Foods Program, Purchasing Division, and the Library and Archives Division. The proposed facility will be located on land in the State of Nevada East Sahara Complex. The building will be located adjacent to the existing Metro Building that is planned to be remodeled to accommodate Buildings and Grounds, State Public Works Division and the Department of Agriculture Administration.
17. Project Justification: The Commodity Foods Program dry goods storage warehouse was condemned in June 2012 because of a rodent infestation. In order to receive, store and distribute foods pursuant to the Federal Program, the Commodity Foods Program has had to rent storage space in two separate facilities. Dry goods are now stored in the Three Square Warehouse located at 4190 N Pecos Road. Cold storage is leased from Las Vegas Ice and Cold Storage and is located at 1201 Searles Avenue, 7 miles away. Three Square has determined that they no longer have room for the Commodity Foods Program to occupy the space in their warehouse. The cost and inconvenience of yet another move is immanent. A lease agreement through Leasing Services for a commercial warehouse space is located at 6160 N Hollywood Blvd. This is 12 miles away from the cold storage facility. The combined annual cost of the two facilities will be $301,064.00 during the 2015-17 biennium. In addition to the direct cost issue, the delivery trucks must visit both storage sites to assemble the required loads to be delivered in southern Nevada. This procedure is inconvenient, inefficient and time consuming. This system frequently causes overtime for program staff. The addition of an all-inclusive warehouse for dry goods and cold storage at the East Sahara State Complex will save time and money. The State Library and Archives has actively been pursuing a records center facility in Southern Nevada for over twenty years. The goal of having a State Records Center in southern Nevada is to provide a secure and environmentally safe records storage facility with efficient and timely records reference and retrieval services for agencies located in southern Nevada. Southern Nevada holds 41% of State government and most state agencies maintain offices there. Although there has been a significant demand for record management services in southern Nevada, no facility has yet been built and the only State-run facility is located in Carson City. The mission of the State Records Center is to provide for these agencies a safe, secure, low-cost storage alternative for their inactive (non-current) records that they are now forced to store in expensive office space or in unsecured locations that do not meet State standards for records storage, NAC 239.740.
18. Project Background Information: ased on an Assessors valuation of the condemned storage facility, it is estimated that the condemned site could be sold for between $500-600,000, which could be used to offset a portion of the cost. The ongoing Operations and Maintenance cost of the new warehouse will be divided between multiple state agencies. In 2002 the Division of Internal Audits conducted a program audit of the Nevada State Library and Archives. In the audit’s final report, it was strongly recommended that the Division establish a record center in southern Nevada. Analysis determined that “a records center in southern Nevada would free up about $560,000 annually” in existing office space, self-storage units, and commercial storage costs. The records center facility in Carson City demonstrates that agencies are able to utilize the facility to store inactive (non-current) records and leave expensive office space for their active business. A CIP for a southern Nevada Records Center construction was approved by the 2007 State Legislature together with staffing. Project funding was cut because of the 2007 recession.
