FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet is asking developers to bid on a proposed 334,000-square-foot office building in the state capitol.

State officials want the developer to pay for the building up front and lease it back to state government for several years until the state can purchase it. The state wants the building on some state-owned property off of Sower Boulevard near the Public Service Commission. But officials said they will consider other sites.

Cabinet spokeswoman Pamela Trautner said state officials don't know how they would use the building. She said the state is always looking for the most efficient ways to house state employees.

The deadline to bid on the project is 10:30 a.m. on June 27.
