18A:24-39 Special provisions for two or more issues.
18A:24-39. In case of a sale of more than one issue such notice of sale may, after describing the separate issues, provide in substance for one of the following methods of sale, namely:
a. The notice may state the combined maturities of all of said issues and request bids only for such combined maturities as if such combined maturities constituted a single issue, in which event the provisions of sections 18A:24-36 to 18A:24-46 shall apply as though the combined maturities constituted a single issue; or
b. The notice may state that bidders may name a single rate, or different rates, of interest for the different issues of bonds included in such sale, but if different rates are permitted, the notice may require a single rate for all the bonds of one issue, and that all issues will be awarded to the bidder on whose bid the total loan may be made at the lowest net interest cost or the true interest cost to the school district. The board of education of the district shall specify in its notice of public sale advertised pursuant to N.J.S.18A:24-37 whether the award shall be based on net interest cost or true interest cost. The net interest cost shall be computed by adding to the total principal amount of the bonds which the bidder offers to accept, the total interest cost to maturity which will be paid under the terms of the bid, after deducting from such interest cost the amount of cash premium, if any bid, which shall not exceed $1,000.00 as to any one issue or the addition thereto of the amount of discount, if any, bid. The true interest cost shall be computed in each instance by determining the interest rate, compounded semi-annually, necessary to discount the debt service payments to the date of the bonds and to the price bid, excluding interest accrued to the delivery date.
c. The board of education of the district, by resolution, may allow or otherwise delegate to the school business administrator the authority to permit a bidder to aggregate the consecutive principal maturities for which such bidder bid in the same interest rate into term bonds, provided that mandatory sinking funds for which redemptions in lieu of the principal maturities are provided. For the purposes of this subsection, "term bond" means a bond that is due in a certain year but has mandatory retirement provisions for portions of the term bond on specified dates prior to the maturity date of the term bond itself.
