Contract Conditions
1. The vendor shall provide start-up service for a period of 1-2 days upon delivery of the instrument.
At the end of this period, the instrument shall be completely operational as per Design and
Performance Specifications (Sec. III above). Start-up service shall include training of DNR
operators in the routine maintenance tasks necessary for the instrument operation. This would
require a visit of a factory representative to Wisconsin DNR to perform at least a one day training
course for DNR staff. DNR will pay for travel costs (transportation, meals, lodging). These
services will only be required for the initial order of 14 units specified in this bid. If the Department
elects to purchase additional units after the initial order, these services will not be necessary.
2. The vendor shall negotiate the delivery of their instruments with the Wisconsin DNR. With each
instrument delivered, the vendor shall assure that each monitor/analyzer is affixed with an EPA
Designation Sticker, that the equipment is operating properly, and that it will pass DNR
3. The Wisconsin DNR will perform a 60 day evaluation of each instrument to determine compliance
or noncompliance with performance specifications. Such evaluation will begin on receipt of the
instrument by DNR, subject to paragraphs 1 and 2 above. In addition, the monitor/analyzers must
provide 95% of all hourly averages of the pollutant concentration (with the instrument performing
within the limits of the purchase specifications) during this period; provided that the
monitor/analyzer is operated in accordance with the manufacturers operating manual and
provided there is no power interruption.
4. In the event of noncompliance with performance specifications, the vendor will, within 30 days,
repair and report any changes made, as well as any resulting change in performance. If more
than two performance testing periods are required, acceptance of the unit will be the prerogative
of DNR. If the instrument must be returned to the vendor for repair before acceptance, shipping
charges shall be paid by the vendor. No modifications may be made which have not been
authorized by USEPA as a condition of approval as a reference or equivalent analyzer.
5. Payment by DNR will be forthcoming after each instrument has satisfactorily passed the
acceptance tests covered in the purchase order.
6. The instruments shall be warranted by the vendor to meet DNR specifications, and warranted
against faulty materials and workmanship, for a period of at least two (2) years from date start-up
is completed; except that the CPU shall be warranted for five (5) years.
7. The vendor shall provide a copy of the warranty to DNR no later than the date the equipment is
certified as operational (see step 2 above). The warranty will include the date of initial coverage
and the date of expiration.
8. The vendor shall warrant, for at least 1 year, either on-site repairs within 72 hours, or factory
repairs, after notification of instrument failure - such warranty not to include regular maintenance
requirements demonstrated in start-up training or malfunctions induced by the operator. If the
instruments must be returned to the factory, the manufacturer must provide within 72 hours of
receipt the repaired instrument.
9. For at least one year following the date start-up is completed, the vendor shall warrant that the
period or periods each instrument is inoperable will not exceed a total of 30 days. Each
inoperable period shall begin when the vendor is notified by DNR of instrument failure and
continuing until the instrument is again operating within specifications. Such warranty does not
include malfunctions induced by the operator, nor when forces beyond the control of the vendor
cause a delay in operation greater than 30 days.
10. Any exception to DNR bid specifications shall be explained by the vendor in writing. The
explanation shall include the extent of the deviation and the reason for it.
11. Bid prices must be shown on the "BID PRICE SHEET".
