Proposal is accepted will be returned only after he has duly executed
the Contract and furnished the required Public Construction Bond and
insurance.
Should it be necessary for the City to retain the bid security and said

be returned if replaced by Bid Bonds in an amount equal to the
amount of the checks of such Bidders in such form and issued by a
surety company acceptable to the City.

based upon the neglect or refusal to execute a contract.

The estimate of quantities of the various items of work and materials,
if set forth in the Proposal Form, is approximate only and is given
solely to be used as a uniform basis for the comparison of Proposals.
The quantities actually required to complete the Contract work may
be less or more than so estimated, and if awarded a Contract for the
work specified, the Contractor agrees that he will not make any claim
for damages or for loss of profits because of a difference between the
quantities of the various classes of work assumed for comparison of
Proposals and quantities of work actually performed. The City further
reserves the right to vary the quantities in any amount.
I-2.10 COMPARISON OF PROPOSALS
Except jobs bid on a "One Lump Sum" basis, proposals will be
compared on the basis of a total computed price arrived at by taking
the sum of the estimated quantity of each time and the corresponding
unit price of each item, and including any lump sum prices on
individual items.
The computed total prices for individual Contract Items and the total
computed price for the entire Contract, as entered by the Bidder in
the Proposal Form, are for convenience only and are subject to
correction in the tabulation and computation of the Proposals.

CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTORS
A Certification of Nonsegregated Facilities, as required by the May 9,
1967, Order (32 F.R. 7439, May 19, 1967) on Elimination of
Segregated Facilities, by the Secretary of Labor, must be submitted
to said Secretary prior to the award of a federally-assisted
construction and Contract exceeding $10,000 which is not exempt
from the provisions of the Equal Opportunity Clause. The form of
certification may be bound herein following the form of Bid Bond.
Contractors receiving federally-assisted construction Contract awards
exceeding $10,000 which are not exempt from the provisions of the
Equal Opportunity Clause will be required to provide for the
forwarding of the following notice to prospective subcontractor for
supplies and construction contracts where the subcontracts exceed
$10,000 and are not exempt from the provisions of the Equal
Opportunity Clause:
NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE SUBCONTRACTORS OF
REQUIREMENT
FOR CERTIFICATIONS OF NONSEGREGATED FACILITIES
"A Certification of Nonsegregated Facilities, as required by the May 9,
1967, Order (32 F.R. 7439, May 19, 1967) on Elimination of
Segregated Facilities, by the Secretary of Labor, must be submitted
prior to the award of a subcontract exceeding $10,000 which is not
exempt from the provisions of the Equal Opportunity Clause."
"Contractors receiving subcontract awards exceeding $10,000 which
are not exempt from the provisions of the Equal Opportunity Clause
will be required to provide from the forwarding of this notice to
prospective subcontractors for supplies and construction contracts
where the subcontracts exceed $10,000 and are not exempt from the
provisions of the Equal Opportunity Clause."
The United States requires a pre-award conference if a proposed
construction contract exceeds one million dollars to determine if the
the prospective contractor is in compliance with the Equal
Employment Opportunity requirements of Executive Order 11246 of
September 24, 1965. In such instances, a meeting may be
scheduled at which the prospective contractor must specify what
affirmative action he has taken or proposed to take to assure equal
employment opportunity which must be approved by the United
States before award of the contract will be authorized.
Bidders must be prepared to submit an Equal Employment
Opportunity (EEO) plan at a pre-award conference. The plan must
include bidding opportunities offered by the Bidder to minority
subcontractors.
On October 13, 1971, President Nixon issued Executive Order 11246
emphasizing the government's commitment to the promotion of
minority business enterprise. Accordingly, the United States is firmly
I-4
committed to the utilization of available resources to support this
important program. U.S. agencies are most interested in realizing
minority participation on the subject. Achieving equal employment
opportunity compliance is required through Executive Order 11246.
WE cannot emphasize too strongly that minority subcontractors be
extended subcontractors bidding opportunities as but one step in your
affirmative action policy.
Due to the importance of this contract, U.S. Agencies may conduct an
EEO Conference prior to the award of the Contract. It is suggested
that the responsive Bidder confirm the minority subcontractors he
contacted for bids or quotations in his EEO plan submitted at the
conference.
I-2.18 EEO AFFIRMATIVE ACTION REQUIREMENTS
By the submission of a Proposal, each Bidder acknowledges that he
understands and will agree to be bound by the equal opportunity
requirements of Federal regulations which shall be applicable
throughout the performance of work under any contract awarded
pursuant to solicitation. Each Bidder agrees that if awarded a
contract, he will similarly bind contractually each subcontractor. In
policies, each Bidder further understands and agrees that if awarded
a contract, he must engage in Affirmative Action directed to
promoting and ensuring equal employment opportunity in the work
force used under the contract (and he must require contractually the
same effort of all subcontractors whose subcontracts exceed
$100,000). The Bidder understands and agrees that "Affirmative
Action" as used herein shall constitute a good faith effort to achieve
and maintain minority employment in each trade in the on-site work
force used on the project. * * * * * * * END of SECTION * * * * * * *

Name _______________________________________ Title _________________________________
The following Compliance Plan is a true report of Good Faith Efforts made to accomplish subcontracting goals for
Small Local Business Enterprises, SLBEs, on the referenced contract:
□ The goal for SLBE participation has been met or exceeded. See the DMI form reporting subcontractors to be utilized.
(Check Box, if appropriate; the remainder of the Compliance Plan need not be reported.)
□ The goal for SLBE participation has not been met. The following is a recap of Good Faith Efforts made:
(Check applicable boxes below. Enclose additional documents, and/or add remarks below as needed.)
(1)
Soliciting through reasonable and available means the interest of SLBEs that have the capability to perform the work of the contract. The Bidder or Contractor must solicit
this interest within sufficient time to allow the SLBEs to respond. The Bidder or Contractor must take appropriate steps to follow up initial solicitations with interested
□ See DMI report forms for subcontractors solicited. □ See enclosed supplemental data on solicitation efforts. □ Remarks:
SLBEs.
(2)
Providing interested SLBEs with adequate information about the plans, specifications, and requirements of the contract, including addenda, in a timely manner to assist
them in responding to the solicitation. □ See enclosed sample solicitation. □ Remarks:
(3)
Negotiating in good faith with interested SLBEs that have submitted bids. Documentation of negotiation must include the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of
SLBEs that were solicited; the date of each such solicitation; a description of the information provided regarding the plans and specifications for the work selected for
subcontracting; and evidence as to why agreements could not be reached with SLBEs to perform the work. That there may be some additional costs involved in soliciting
and using SLBEs is not a sufficient reason for a contractor’s failure to meet the goals, as long as such costs are reasonable. Bidders are not required to accept higher
quotes in order to meet the goal. □ DMI subcontractor-utilized forms reflect successful negotiations □ This project is of a low-bid nature
and negotiations are limited to clarifications of scope and specifications. □ See enclosed document. □ Remarks:
(4)
Not rejecting SLBEs as being unqualified without sound reasons based on a thorough investigation of their capabilities. The SLBEs standing within its industry,
membership in specific groups, organizations, or associations and political or social affiliations are not legitimate causes for rejecting or not soliciting bids to meet the
goals. □ Not applicable. □ See attached explanation for rejection of a low-bidding subcontractor’s bid. □ Remarks:
(5)
Making a portion of the work available to SLBE subcontractors and suppliers and to select those portions of the work or material consistent with the available SLBE
subcontractors and suppliers, so as to facilitate meeting the goal. □ Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of work or trade without
restriction to a pre-determined portion. □ See enclosed comments. □ Remarks:
(6)
Making good faith efforts, despite the ability or desire of a Bidder or Contractor to perform the work of a contract with its own organization. A Bidder or Contractor who
desires to self-perform the work of a contract must demonstrate good faith efforts unless the goal has been met. □ Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from
submitting bids on work not usually sub-contracted. □ Remarks:
(7)
Selecting portions of the work to be performed by SLBEs in order to increase the likelihood that the goals will be met. This includes, where appropriate, breaking out
contract work items into economically feasible units to facilitate SLBE participation, even when the Bidder or Contractor might otherwise prefer to perform these work items
with its own forces. □ Sub-Contractors were allowed to bid on their own choice of work or trade without restriction to a pre-determined
portion. □ Sub-Contractors were not prohibited from submitting bids on work not usually sub-contracted. □ See enclosed comments.

Compliance Plan: Guidance For Meeting Good Faith Efforts
1. All firms on the SLBE Goal Setting List must be solicited and documentation provided for email,
fax, letters, phone calls, and other communication with the listed firms. The DMI Solicited and
DMI-Utilized forms must be completed for all firms solicited or utilized. Other opportunities for
subcontracting may be explored by consulting the City of Tampa and/or Hillsborough County
certification listings of SLBE’s.
2. Solicitation of SLBEs, via written or electronic notification, should provide specific information on
the services needed, where plans can be reviewed and assistance offered in obtaining these, if
required. Solicitations should be typically be sent a week or more before the bid date. Sample
copies of the bidder’s solicitations should be provided.
3. With any quotes received, a follow-up should be made whenever needed to confirm scope of work.
For any SLBE low quotes rejected, an explanation should be provided detailing negotiation efforts.
4. If a low bid SLBE is rejected or deemed unqualified the contractor must provide an explanation and
supporting documentation for this decision.
5. Prime should break down portions of work into economical feasible opportunities for
subcontracting. The SLBE directory can be useful in identifying additional subcontracting
opportunities and firms not listed in the “SLBE Goal Setting Firms List.”
6. Contractor should not preclude SLBEs from bidding on any part of work, even if the Contractor can
self-perform the work.
7. Contractor should avoid relying solely on subcontracting out work where availability is not
sufficient to attain pre-determined goal.
8. In its solicitations, the Bidder should offer assistance to SLBEs in obtaining bonding, insurance, etc,
if required of subcontractors by the City or Prime Contractor.
9. In its solicitation, the Bidder should offer assistance in obtaining equipment for a specific job to
SLBEs, if needed.
10. Contractor should use the services offered by such agencies as the Minority Business Development
Office of the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County and the NAACP Empowerment Center for the
recruitment and placement of SLBEs.

ARTICLE 2.03 NO ESTOPPEL

herein and except as subject to review by the Mayor and City
Council. All orders of the Engineer requiring the Contractor

by the Contractor.
The Engineer shall not, however, have the power to issue an
extra work order, and the performance of such work on the
order of the Engineer without previously obtaining written

herein provided nor shall any waiver of any breach of this
Contract be held as a waiver of any other subsequent breach.
Any remedy provided in this Contract shall be taken and
construed as cumulative, namely, in addition to each and
every other suit, action, or legal proceeding. The City shall
be entitled as of right to an injunction against any breach of
the provisions of this Contract.

workmanship which are defective or require their correction.

from the site, which must at all times be kept in a reasonably
clean and neat condition.
SECTION 3
PERFORMANCE OF WORK
Failure or neglect on the part of the City to condemn or reject
bad or inferior work or materials shall not be construed to
imply an acceptance of such work or materials, if it becomes
evident at any time prior to the final acceptance of the work
by the City. Neither shall it be construed as barring the City
at any subsequent time from the recovery of damages of such
a sum of money as may be needed to build anew all portions
of the work in which inferior work or improper materials
were used, wherever found.
ARTICLE 3.01 CONTRACTOR'S RESPONSIBILITY
The Contractor shall do all the work and furnish, at his own
cost and expense, all labor, materials, equipment, and other
facilities, except as herein otherwise provided, as may be
necessary and proper for performing and completing the
work under this Contract.
The Contractor shall be
responsible for the entire work until completed and finally
accepted by the City.
The work shall be performed in accordance with the true
intent and meaning of the Contract Documents. Unless
otherwise expressly provided, the work must be performed in
accordance with the best modern practice, with materials as
specified and workmanship of the highest quality, all as
determined by and entirely to the satisfaction of the
Engineer.
Should it be considered necessary or advisable by the City at
any time before final acceptance of the entire work to make
examinations of work already completed, by removing or
tearing out all or portions of such work, the Contractor shall,
on request, promptly furnish all necessary facilities, labor,
and material for that purpose. If such work is found to be
defective in any material respect, due to the fault of the
Contractor or his subcontractors, he shall defray all expenses
of such examination and of satisfactory reconstruction. If,
however, such work is found to meet the requirements of the
Contract, the cost of examination and restoration of the work
shall be considered an item of extra work to be paid for in
accordance with the provisions of Article 7.02 hereof.
Unless otherwise expressly provided, the means and methods
of construction shall be such as the Contractor may choose,
subject, however, to the approval of the Engineer. Only
adequate and safe procedure, methods, structures and
equipment shall be used. The Engineer's approval or the
Engineer's failure to exercise his right thereon shall not
relieve the Contractor of obligations to accomplish the result
intended by the Contract, nor shall such create a cause of
action for damages.
ARTICLE 3.04 PROTECTION
During performance and until final acceptance, the
Contractor shall be under an absolute obligation to protect
the finished and unfinished work against any damage, loss,
or injury. The Contractor shall take proper precaution to
protect the finished work from loss or damage, pending
completion and the final acceptance of all the work included
in the entire Contract, provided that such precaution shall not
relieve the Contractor from any and all liability and
responsibility for loss or damage to the work occurring
before final acceptance by the City. Such loss or damage

ARTICLE 4.03 APPROVAL REQUESTS
From time to time, as the work progresses and in the
sequence indicated by the approved schedule, the Contractor
must submit to the Engineer a specific request, in writing, for
each item of information or approval required of him by the
Contract. These requests must be submitted sufficiently in
advance of the date upon which the information or approval
is actually required by the Contractor to allow for the time
the Engineer may take to act upon such submissions or
resubmissions. The Contractor shall not have any right to an
extension of time on account of delays due to his failure to
submit his requests for the required information or the
required approval in accordance with these requirements.
ARTICLE 4.06 LIQUIDATED DAMAGES
It is mutually agreed between the parties that time is the
essence of this Contract and that there will be on the part of
the City considerable monetary damage in the event the
Contractor should fail to complete the work within the time
fixed for completion in the Contract or within the time to
which such completion may have been extended.
ARTICLE 4.04 COORDINATION WITH OTHER
CONTRACTORS
During progress of the work, other Contractors may be
engaged in performing other work on this project or on other
projects on the site. In that event, the Contractor shall
coordinate the work to be done hereunder with the work of
such other Contractors in such manner as the Engineer may
direct.
The amount per day set forth in the Instructions to Bidders is
hereby agreed upon as the liquidated damages for each and
every calendar day that the time consumed in completing the
work under this Contract exceeds the time allowed.
This amount shall, in no event, be considered as a penalty or
otherwise than as the liquidated and adjusted damages to the
City because of the delay and the Contractor and his Surety
agree that the stated sum per day for each such day of delay
shall be deducted and retained out of the monies which may
become due hereunder and if not so deductible, the
Contractor and his Surety shall be liable therefor.
ARTICLE 4.05 EXTENSION OF TIME
If such an application is made, the Contractor shall be
entitled to an extension of time for delay in completion of the
work should the Contractor be obstructed or delayed in the
commencement, prosecution or completion of any part of
said work by any act or delay of the City, or by acts or
omissions of other Contractors on this project, or by a riot,
insurrection, war, pestilence, acts of public authorities, fire,
lightning, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, floods,
extremely abnormal and excessive inclement weather as
indicated by the records of the local weather bureau for a
five-year period preceding the date of the Contract, or by
strikes, or other causes, which causes of delay mentioned in
this Article, in the opinion of the City, are entirely beyond
the expectation and control of the Contractor.
ARTICLE 4.07 FINAL INSPECTION
When the work has been completed in accordance with the
requirements of the Contract and final cleaning up
performed, a date for final inspection of the work by the
Engineer shall be set by the Contractor in a written request
therefor, which date shall be not less than ten (10) days after
the date of such request. The work will be deemed complete
as of the date so set by the Contractor if, upon such
inspection, the Engineer determines that no further work
remains to be done at the site.
The Contractor shall, however, be entitled to an extension of
time for such causes only for the number of days of delay
which the City may determine to be due solely to such causes
and only to the extent that such occurrences actually delay
the completion of the project and then only if the Contractor
shall have strictly complied with all of the requirements of
Articles 4.01, 4.02, 4.03 and 4.04 hereof. It is hereby
understood that the determination by the Engineer as to the
order and sequence of the work shall not in itself constitute a
basis for extension of time.
If such inspection reveals interms of work still to be
performed, however, the Contractor shall promptly perform
them and then request a reinspection. If, upon such
inspection, the Engineer determines that the work is
complete, the date of final completion shall be deemed to be
the last day of such reinspection.
The determination made by the City on an application for an
extension of time shall be binding and conclusive on the
Contractor.
ARTICLE 5.01 LIMITATIONS AND CONSENT
The Contractor shall not assign, transfer, convey, sublet or
otherwise dispose of this Contract or of his right, title, or
interest therein, or his power to execute such Contract, or to
assign any monies due or to become due thereunder to any
other person, firm or corporation unless the previous written
consent of the City shall first be obtained thereto and the
giving of any such consent to a particular subcontract or
assignment shall not dispense with the necessity of such
consent to any further or other assignment.

SUBCONTRACTS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Delays caused by failure of the Contractor's materialmen,
manufacturers, and dealers to furnish approved working
drawings, materials, fixtures, equipment, appliances, or other
fittings on time or failure of subcontractors to perform their
work shall not constitute a basis of extension of time.
The Contractor agrees to make no claim for damages for
delay in the performance of this Contract occasioned by any

and materials which he is to perform and furnish and any
other information tending to prove that the proposed
subcontractor has the necessary facilities, skill, integrity, past
experience and financial resources to perform the work in
accordance with the terms and conditions of this Contract.
If, at any time, the City shall become dissatisfied with any
surety or sureties then upon the Performance Bond, or if for
any other reason such bond shall cease to be adequate
security for the City, the Contractor shall, within five days
after notice so to do, substitute an acceptable Bond in such
form and sum and signed by such other sureties as may be
satisfactory to the City. The premiums on such Bond shall
be paid by the Contractor. No further partial payments shall
be deemed due or shall be made until the new sureties have
qualified.
If the City finds that the proposed subcontractor is qualified,
the Contractor will be notified in writing. The City may
revoke approval of any subcontractor when such
subcontractor evidences an unwillingness or inability to
perform his work in strict accordance with these Contract
Documents. Notice of such revocation of approval will be
given in writing to the Contractor.
The Contractor will promptly, upon request, file with the
City a conformed copy of the subcontract. The Contractor
shall cause appropriate provisions to be inserted in all
subcontracts relative to the work to bind subcontractors to
the Contractor by the terms of these Contract Documents,
insofar as applicable to the work of subcontractors, and to
give the Contractor the same power as regards terminating
any subcontracts that the City may exercise over the
Contractor under provisions of these Contract Documents.

approved payments to him as may, in the opinion of the City,
be necessary to secure (a) just claims of any persons
supplying labor or materials to the Contractor or any of his
subcontractors for the work then due and unpaid; (b) loss due
to defective work not remedied, or (c) liability, damage, or
loss due to injury to persons or damages to the work or
property of other contractors, subcontractors, or others,
caused by the act or neglect of the Contractor or of any of his
subcontractors. The City shall have the right, as agent for the
Contractor, to apply any such amounts so withheld in such
manner as the City may deem proper to satisfy such claims
or to secure such protection. Such application of such
money shall be deemed payments for the account of the
Contractor.
The Contractor shall be required to perform with his own
forces at least twenty-five (25) percent of the work, unless
written consent to subcontract a greater percentage of the
work is first obtained from the City.
ARTICLE 5.02 RESPONSIBILITY
The approval by the City of a subcontractor shall not relieve
the Contractor of any of his responsibilities, duties, and
liabilities hereunder.
The Contractor shall be solely
responsible to the City for the acts or defaults or omissions of
his subcontractor and of such subcontractor's officers, agents,
and employees, each of whom shall for all purposes be
deemed to be the agent or employee of the Contractor.
Nothing contained in the Contract Documents shall create

the City.

materials for a period of one year following the date of final
acceptance of the work by the City. Under this guarantee,

his own expense, any failure of any part of the work due to
faulty materials or manufacture, construction, or installation,
or the failure of any equipment to perform satisfactorily all
the work put upon it within the limits of the Contract
Documents, and further, shall make good any damage to any
part of the work caused by such failure. It is hereby agreed
that the Performance Bond shall fully cover all guarantees
contained in this Article.

City.

tractors, or other equipment, required for the
economical performance of the authorized work, the

the substance thereof or materially changing the price to be
paid in order to carry out and complete more fully and
perfectly the work herein agreed to be done and performed.
This Contract shall in no way be invalidated by any such
additions, deductions, or changes, and no claim by the
Contractor shall be made for any loss of anticipated profits
thereby.
Construction conditions may require that minor changes be
made in the location and installation of the work and
equipment to be furnished and other work to be performed
hereunder, and the Contractor when ordered by the Engineer,
shall make such adjustments and changes in said locations
and work as may be necessary, without additional cost to the
City, provided such adjustments and changes do not alter the
character, quantity of cost of the work as a whole, and
provided further that Plans and Specifications showing such
adjustments and changes are furnished to the Contractor by
the City within a reasonable time before any work involving
such adjustment and changes is begun. The Engineer shall
be the sole judge of what constitutes a minor change for
which no additional compensation shall be allowed.
Request for payment for approved and duly authorized extra
work shall be submitted in the same form as Contract work
or in the case of work performed under paragraph (c) (1)
above upon a certified statement supported by receipted bills.
Such statement shall be submitted for the current Contract
payment for the month in which the work was done.
ARTICLE 7.03 DISPUTED WORK
If the Contractor is of the opinion that any work required,
necessitated, or ordered violates the terms and provisions of
this Contract, he must promptly notify the Engineer, in
writing, of his contentions with respect thereto and request a
final determination thereof. If the Engineer determines that
the work in question is Contract work and not extra work or
that the order complained of is proper, he will direct the
Contractor to proceed and the Contractor shall promptly
comply. In order, however, to reserve his right to claim
compensation for such work or damages resulting from such
compliance, the Contractor must, within five (5) days after
receiving notice of the Engineer's determination and
direction, notify the City in writing that the work is being
performed or that the determination and direction is being
complied with under protest. Failure of the Contractor to
notify shall be deemed as a waiver of claim for extra
compensation or damages therefor.
ARTICLE 7.02 EXTRA WORK
The City may at any time by a written order and without
notice to the sureties require the performance of such extra
work as it may find necessary or desirable. An order for
extra work shall be valid only if issued in writing and signed
by the Mayor and the work so ordered must be performed by
the Contractor.
The amount of compensation to be paid to the Contractor for
any extra work as so ordered shall be determined as follows:
(a)By such applicable unit prices, if any, as are set forth
in the Proposal; or
(b)If no such unit prices are set forth then by a lump
sum or other unit prices mutually agreed upon by the City
and the Contractor; or
(c)If no such unit prices are set forth in the Proposal
and if the parties cannot agree upon a lump sum or other unit
prices then by the actual net cost in money to the Contractor
of the extra work performed, which cost shall be determined
as follows:
(1) For all labor and foreman in direct charge of
the authorized operations, the Contractor shall receive
the current local rate of wages to be agreed upon, in
writing, before starting such work for each hour that
said labor and foremen are actually engaged thereon, to
which shall be added an amount equal to 25 percent of
the sum thereof which shall be considered and accepted
as full compensation for general supervision, FICA
taxes, contributions under the Florida Unemployment
Compensation Act, insurance, bond, subcontractor's
profit and overhead, the furnishing of small tools and
miscellaneous equipment used, such as picks, shovels,
hand pumps, and similar items.
(2) For all materials used, the Contractor shall
receive the actual cost of such materials delivered at the
site or previously approved delivery point as
established by original receipted bills. No percentage
shall be added to this cost.
Before final acceptance by the City, all matters of dispute
must be adjusted to the mutual satisfaction of the parties
thereto. Final determinations and decisions, in case any
questions shall arise, shall constitute a condition precedent to
the right of the Contractor to receive the money therefor until
the matter in question has been adjusted.
ARTICLE 7.04 OMITTED WORK
The City may at any time by a written order and without
notice to the sureties require the omission of such Contract
work as it may find necessary or desirable.
An order for omission of work shall be valid only if signed
by the Mayor and the work so ordered must be omitted by
the Contractor. The amount by which the Contract price
shall be reduced shall be determined as follows:
(a) By such applicable unit prices, if any, as are set
forth in the Contract; or
(b) By the appropriate lump sum price set forth in the
Contract; or
(c) By the fair and reasonable estimated cost to the City

or on which such materials, tools, and equipment are
incorporated or used, and (c) to each of his subcontractors,
not later than the 5th day following each payment to the
Contractor, the respective amounts allowed the Contractor on
account of the work performed by his subcontractors, to the
extent of each subcontractor's interest therein; and proof of
such payments or releases therefor shall be submitted to the
Engineer upon request.
ARTICLE 10.05 PARTIAL PAYMENTS
On or about the first of each month, the Contractor shall
make and certify an estimate, on forms prescribed by the
City, of the amount and fair value of the work done, and may
apply for partial payment therefor. The Contractor shall
revise the estimate as the Engineer may direct. When
satisfactory progress has been made, and shows that the
value of the work completed since the last payment exceeds
one percent (1%) of the total Contract price in amount, the
Engineer will issue a certificate that such work has been
completed and the value thereof. The City will then issue a
voucher to the Contractor in accordance with the following
schedule:
FOR CONTRACT AMOUNTS UNDER $250,000
(A)In the amount of ninety percent (90%) of the value
of the work completed as certified until construction is one
hundred percent (100%) complete (operational or beneficial
occupancy), the withheld amount may be reduced below ten
percent (10%), at the Engineer's option, to only that amount
necessary to assure completion.
A-10
FOR CONTRACT AMOUNTS OVER $250,000
(A)In the amount of ninety percent (90%) of the value
of the work completed as certified until construction is fifty
percent (50%) complete.
(B)When the dollar value, as determined by the
Engineer, of satisfactorily completed work in place is greater
than fifty percent (50%) of the original contract price,
vouchers for partial payment will be issued by the City to the
Contractor in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of
the value of the work, above 50%, completed as certified for
that payment period.
(C)If the Contractor has performed satisfactorily and
the work is substantially complete (operational or beneficial
occupancy) the withheld amount may be reduced, at the
Engineer's option, to only that amount necessary to assure
completion.
In addition to the Conditions set forth in (A), (B), and (C)
above, payments will always be less any sums that may be
retained or deducted by the City under the terms of any of
the contract documents and less any sums that may be
retained to cover monetary guarantees for equipment,
materials or progress performance.
Payment on estimates made on or about the first of the month
may be expected on or about the 20th of the month.
Unless specified otherwise in the Contract Items, the
delivered cost of equipment and nonperishable materials
suitably stored at the site of the work and tested for adequacy
may be included in the Contractor's application for partial
payment provided, however, that the Contractor shall furnish
evidence satisfactory to the City that the Contractor is the
unconditional owner and in possession of such materials or
equipment. The amount to be paid will be 90 percent of the
invoice cost to the Contractor which cost shall be supported
by receipted bills within 30 days of the date of payment by
the City to the Contractor. Such payment shall not relieve
the Contractor from full responsibility for completion of the
work and for protection of such materials and equipment
until incorporated in the work in a permanent manner as
required by the Contract Documents.
Before any payment will be made under this Contract, the
Contractor and every subcontractor, if required, shall deliver
to the Engineer a written, verified statement, in satisfactory
form, showing in detail all amounts then due and unpaid by
such Contractor or subcontractor to all laborers, workmen,
and mechanics, employed by him under the Contract for the
performance of the work at the site thereof, for daily or
weekly wages, or to other persons for materials, equipment,
or supplies delivered at the site of the work during the period
covered by the payment under consideration.
ARTICLE 10.06 FINAL PAYMENT
Under determination of satisfactory completion of the work
under this Contract as provided in Article 4.07 hereof, the
Engineer will prepare the final estimate showing the value of
the completed work. This estimate will be prepared within
30 days after the date of completion or as soon thereafter as
the necessary measurements and computations can be made.
All prior certificates and estimates, being approximate only,
are subject to correction in the final estimate and payment.
When the final estimate has been prepared and certified by
Engineer, he will submit to the Mayor and City Council the
final certificate stating that the work has been completed and
the amount based on the final estimate remaining due to the
Contractor. The City will then accept the work as fully
completed and will, not later than 30 days after the final
acceptance, as defined in Article 1.02, of the work done
under this Contract, pay the Contractor the entire amount so
found due thereunder after deduction of all previous
payments and all percentages and amounts to be kept and
retained under provisions of this Contract; provided,
however, and it is understood and agreed that, as a precedent
to receiving final payment, the Contractor shall submit to the
City a sworn affidavit that all bills for labor, service,
materials, and subcontractors have been paid and that there
are no suits pending in connection with this work. The City,
at its option, may permit the Contractor to execute a separate
surety bond in a form satisfactory to the City. The surety
bond shall be in the full amount of the suit or suits.
Neither the final payment nor any part of the retained
percentage shall be paid until the Contractor, if required,
shall furnish the City with a complete release from any
should remain unsatisfied after all payments are made, the
Contractor shall refund to the City all monies which the City
may be compelled to pay in discharging such claim,
including incidental costs and attorney's fees.
ARTICLE 10.07
ACCEPTANCE OF FINAL
PAYMENT
The acceptance by the Contractor, or by anyone claiming by
or through him, of the final payment shall operate as and
shall be a release to the City and every officer and agent
thereof from any and all claims and liability to the Contractor
for anything done or furnished in connection with the work
or project and for any act or neglect of the Contractor or of
any others relating to or affecting the work. No payment,
however, final or otherwise, shall operate to release the
Contractor or his sureties from any obligations under this
Contract or the Performance Bond.

fully of the character, condition and extent of all such
installations and structures as may be encountered and as may
affect the construction operations.
SECTION 1
SCOPE AND INTENT
G-1.01 DESCRIPTION
The work to be done consists of the furnishing of all labor,
materials and equipment, and the performance of all work
included in this Contract.
The Contractor shall protect all public utility installations and
structures from damage during the work. Access across any
buried public utility installation or structure shall be made
only in such locations and by means approved by the
Engineer. The Contractor shall so arrange his operations as
to avoid any damage to these facilities. All required
protective devices and construction shall be provided by the
Contractor at his expense. All existing public utilities
damaged by the Contractor which are shown on the Plans or
have been located in the field by the utility shall be repaired
by the Contractor, at his expense, as directed by the Engineer.
No separate payment shall be made for such protection or
repairs to public utility installations or structures.
G-1.02 WORK INCLUDED
The Contractor shall furnish all labor, superintendence,
materials, plant, power, light, heat, fuel, water, tools,
appliances, equipment, supplies, and other means of
construction necessary or proper for performing and
completing the work. He shall obtain and pay for all required
permits. He shall perform and complete the work in the
manner best calculated to promote rapid construction
consistent with safety of life and property and to the
satisfaction of the Engineer, and in strict accordance with the
Contract Documents. The Contractor shall clean up the work
and maintain it during and after construction, until accepted,
and shall do all work and pay all costs incidental thereto. He
shall repair or restore all structures and property that may be
damaged or disturbed during performance of the work.
Public utility installations or structures owned or controlled
by the City or other governmental body which are shown on
the Plans to be removed, relocated, replaced or rebuilt by the
Contractor shall be considered as a part of the general cost of
doing the work and shall be included in the prices bid for the
various Contract Items. No separate payment shall be made
therefor.
The cost of incidental work described in these General
Provisions, for which there are no specific Contract Items,
shall be considered as part of the overhead cost of doing the
work and shall be included in the prices for the various
Contract Items. No additional payment will be made therefor.
Where public utility installations or structures owned or
controlled by the City or other governmental body are
encountered during the course of the work, and are not
indicated on the Plans or in the Specifications, and when, in
the opinion of the Engineer, removal, relocation, replacement
or rebuilding is necessary to complete the work under this
Contract, such work shall be accomplished by the utility
having jurisdiction or such work may be ordered, in writing
by the Engineer, for the Contractor to accomplish. If such
work is accomplished by the utility having jurisdiction it will
be carried out expeditiously and the Contractor shall give full
cooperation to permit the utility to complete the removal,
relocation, replacement or rebuilding as required. If such
work is accomplished by the Contractor, it will be paid for as
extra work as provided for in Article 7.02 of the Agreement.
The Contractor shall provide and maintain such modern
plant, tools, and equipment as may be necessary, in the
opinion of the Engineer, to perform in a satisfactory and
acceptable manner all the work required by this Contract.
Only equipment of established reputation and proven
efficiency shall be used. The Contractor shall be solely
responsible for the adequacy of his plant and equipment,
prior approval of the Engineer notwithstanding.
G-1.03 PUBLIC UTILITY INSTALLATIONS AND
STRUCTURES
Public utility installations and structures shall be understood
to include all poles, tracks, pipes, wires, conduits, house
service connections, vaults, manholes, and all other
appurtenances and facilities pertaining thereto whether owned
or controlled by the City, other governmental bodies or
privately owned by individuals, firms, or corporations, and
used to serve the public with transportation, traffic control,
gas, electricity, telephone, sewerage, drainage, water or other
public or private property which may be affected by the
work.
The Contractor shall, at all times in performance of the work,
employ approved methods and exercise reasonable care and
skill so as to avoid unnecessary delay, injury, damage or
destruction of public utility installations and structures; and
shall, at all times in the performance of the work, avoid
unnecessary interference with, or interruption of, public
utility services, and shall cooperate fully with the owners
thereof to that end.
All City and other governmental utility departments and other
owners of public utilities, which may be affected by the work,
will be informed in writing by the Engineer within two weeks
after the execution of the Contract or Contracts covering the
work. Such notice will set out, in general, and direct attention
to, the responsibilities of the City and other governmental

utility departments and other owners of public utilities for
such installations and structures as may be affected by the
work and will be accompanied by one set of Plans and
Specifications covering the work under such Contract or
Contracts.
G-2.04 CONTRACTOR TO CHECK PLANS AND
DATA
The Contractor shall verify all dimensions, quantities, and
details shown on the Plans, Supplementary Drawings,
Schedules, Specifications, or other data received from the
Engineer, and shall notify him of all errors, omissions,
conflicts, and discrepancies found therein. Failure to
discover or correct errors, conflicts or discrepancies shall not
relieve the Contractor of full responsibility for unsatisfactory
work, faulty construction or improper operation resulting
therefrom nor from rectifying such conditions at his own
expense. He will not be allowed to take advantage of any
errors or omissions as full instructions will be furnished by
the Engineer, should such errors or omissions be discovered.
All schedules are given for the convenience of the Engineer
and the Contractor and are not guaranteed to be complete.
The Contractor shall assume all responsibility for the making
of estimates of the size, kind, and quality of materials and
equipment included in work to be done under the Contract.
In addition to the general notice given by the Engineer, the
Contractor shall give written notice to all City and other
governmental utility departments and other owners of public
utilities of the location of his proposed construction
operations, at least forty-eight (48) hours in advance of
breaking ground in any area or on any unit of the work. This
can be accomplished by making the appropriate contact with
the "Underground Utility Notification Center for Excavators
(Call Candy)".
The maintenance, repair, removal, relocation, or rebuilding of
public utility installations and structures, when accomplished
by the Contractor as herein provided, shall be done by
methods approved by the Engineer.
G-2.05 SPECIFICATIONS
The specifications consist of four parts, the General
Provisions, the Technical Specifications, the Special
Provisions and the Contract Items. The General Provisions
and Technical Specifications contain general requirements
which govern the work. The Special Provisions and the
Contract Items modify and supplement these by detailed
requirements for the work and shall always govern, whenever
there appears to be conflict.
SECTION 2
PLANS AND SPECIFICATIONS
G-2.01 PLANS
The Plans referred to in the Contract Documents bear the
general project name and number as shown in the Notice To
Bidders.
When obtaining data and information from the Plans, figures
shall be used in preference to scaled dimensions, and large
scale drawings in preference to small scale drawings.
G-2.06 INTENT
All work called for in the Specifications applicable to this
Contract, but not shown on the Plans in their present form, or
vice versa, shall be of like effect as if shown or mentioned in
both. Work not specified in either the Plans or in the
Specifications, but involved in carrying out their intent or in
the complete and proper execution of the work, is required
and shall be performed by the Contractor as though it were
specifically delineated or described.
G-2.02 COPIES FURNISHED TO CONTRACTOR
After the Contract has been executed, the Contractor will be
furnished with five sets of paper prints, the same size as the
original drawings, of each sheet of the Plans and five copies
of the Specifications. Additional copies of the Plans and
Specifications, when requested, may be furnished to the
Contractor at cost of reproduction.
The apparent silence of the Specifications as to any detail, or
the apparent omission from them of a detailed description
concerning any work to be done and materials to be
furnished, shall be regarded as meaning that only the best
general practice is to prevail and that only material and
workmanship of the best quality is to be used, and
interpretation of these Specifications shall be made upon that
basis.
The Contractor shall furnish each of the subcontractors,
manufacturers, and material suppliers such copies of the
Contract Documents as may be required for his work.
G-2.03 SUPPLEMENTARY DRAWINGS
When, in the opinion of the Engineer, it becomes necessary
to explain more fully the work to be done or to illustrate the
work further or to show any changes which may be required,
drawings known as Supplementary Drawings, with
specifications pertaining thereto, will be prepared by the
Engineer and five paper prints thereof will be given to the
Contractor.
SECTION 3
WORKING DRAWINGS
G-3.01 SCOPE
The Contractor shall promptly prepare and submit layout,
detail and shop drawings to insure proper construction,
assembly, and installation of the work using those materials
