K.S.A.75-1262 The building inspection section acting on behalf of the secretary of administration:
"...secretary of administration shall perform periodic inspection of the construction project."
Additionally, "The final inspection of the project shall be conducted jointly by the project architect, engineer or land surveyor, if there is one, the state agency and the secretary of administration.
The results of such final inspection shall be reported to the secretary of administration. Upon determining that the project has been satisfactorily completed, based on the recommendations of the project architect, engineer or land surveyor, if there is one, and the state agency and on other information, the secretary of administration shall officially accept the project as satisfactorily complete and thereby authorize the state agency for which the project was completed to occupy and make use of the project. No state agency shall occupy or make use of any building or portion thereof which has been constructed, or any areas of a building which were repaired or improved, until the project therefore has been officially accepted as provided in this section, except that an agency may occupy all or any area of any such building for which the contractor has agreed in writing to complete and correct all work for the project in accordance with the contract documents within a time specified after the date of such occupancy."
