CONTRACT DOCUMENTS


1. THE CONTRACT DOCUMENTS CONSIST OF:

Agreement & General Conditions.
Modifications and Additions to Agreement & General Conditions.
Specifications.
Drawings.
Addenda and Accepted Alternates.

2. EXAMINATION OF PLANS, SPECIFICATIONS AND SITE OF WORK: The bidder is
required before submitting his proposal to visit the site of the proposed
work and familiarize himself with the nature and extent of the work and
any local conditions that may in any manner affect the work to be done
and the equipment, materials and labor required. He is also required to
examine carefully the plans and specifications and contract documents,
and to inform himself thoroughly regarding any and all conditions and re-
quirements that may in any manner affect the work to be performed under
the contract. Ignorance on the part of the bidder will in no way relieve
him of the obligations and responsibilities assumed under the contract.

3. EXPLANATION TO BIDDERS: No oral explanation in regard to the meaning
of drawings and specifications will be made, and no oral instructions will
be given before the award of contract. Discrepancies, omissions or doubts
as to the meanings of drawings and specifications should be communicated in
writing to the Architect or Engineer for interpretation. Bidders should
act promptly and allow sufficient time for a reply to reach them before the
submission of their bids. Any interpretation made will be in the form of
an addendum to the specifications which will be forwarded to all bidders
and its receipt by the bidder should be acknowledged on the Bid Form.

4. FAMILIARITY WITH LAWS: The bidder is assumed to be familiar with all
Federal, State and local laws, ordinances, rules and regulations that in
any manner affect the work. Ignorance on the part of the bidder will in
no way relieve him of the obligations and responsibilities assumed under
the contract.

5. PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION OF BIDS:

(A) Each bidder shall copy the Proposal Form and submit, in duplicate,
on his own letterhead, indicate his bid prices thereon in proper spaces
for the scope of his proposed work and for the alternates on which he
bids. Any erasures or other corrections in the proposal must be explained
or noted over the signature of the bidder. Proposals containing any con-
ditions, omissions, unexplained erasures, alterations, items not called

B-3
INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDER

5. PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION OF BIDS (Continued)

(B) Each bid must give the full business address of the bidder, state
whether he is an individual, corporation or partnership. Proposals by
a corporation must be signed with the legal name and seal of the corpora-
tion followed by the name of the state of its incorporation and by the
manual signature and designation of an officer, agent or other person
authorized to bind the corporation and if the person signing is not the
president, be accompanied by a duly authenticated document evidencing
the authority to the officer or agent. Proposals by partnerships shall
show the names of all partners and must be signed in the partnership name
by one of the partners. The partnership signature shall be followed by
the manual signature of the partner signing. In every case, the name of
the person signing and his designation shall be typed or printed below
his signature. A bid by a person who affixes to his signature the word
"President", "Secretary", "Agent" or other designation without disclosing
his principal may be held to be the bid of the individual so signing.
Satisfactory evidence of the authority of an officer, agent, attorney or
other person signing for a corporation and for an agent, attorney, etc.,
signing for a partnership or an individual shall be furnished.

(C) Proposals shall be enclosed in a sealed envelope which shall be marked:

ted on the Proposal Form and delivered or mailed to the Owner.

6. DISQUALIFICATION OF BIDDER: More than one bid from an individual, firm,
partnership, corporation or association under the same or different names
will not be considered. Reasonable grounds for believing that a bidder
is interested in more than one proposal for the same work will cause the
rejection of all proposals in which such bidders are believed to be interes-
ted. Any or all proposals will be rejected if there is reason to believe
that collusion exists among the bidders, and no participants in such col-
lusion will be considered in future proposals for the same work. Proposals
in which the prices are obviously unbalanced will be rejected.

7. RECEIPT AND OPENING OF BIDS:

(A) Bids will be opened publicly at the time and place established by the
Owner. The officer whose duty it is to open them will decide when the
specified time has arrived and no bids received thereafter will be con-
sidered. No responsibility will be attached to any officer for the prema-
ture opening of a bid not properly addressed and identified.

(B) At the time fixed for the opening of bids, their contents will be made
public for the information of bidders and others interested who may be pre-
sent either in person or by representative. In determination of the low
bid the Owner will be privileged to consider alternates and unit prices, if
included in the bid.

10'. WITHDRAWAL OF BIDS: Bids may be withdrawn on written or telegra-
phic request received from bidders prior to the time fixed for opening.
Negligence on the part of the bidder in preparing the bid confers no
right for the withdrawal of the bid after it has been opened.

10. AWARD OF CONTRACTS:

(A) The contracts will be awarded as soon as possible to the lowest
responsible bidders, provided bids are responsible and it is in the interest
of the Owner to accept them.

(B) The Owner reserves the right to waive any informality in bids received
when such waiver is in the interest of the Owner.

11. REJECTION OF BIDS: The Owner reserves the right to reject any and
all bids when such rejection is in the interest of the Owner, and to re-
ject the bid of a bidder who is not in a position to perform the contract.

12. ALTERNATES: Alternates may be published in the specifications whereby
the bidder may indicate what sum he will add to or deduct from his base
bid. The order in which the Owner will accept alternates will be in ascend-
ing numerical order.

trades will permit. Changes from drawings necessary to make work of Sub-
contractor conform with building as constructed and to fit work of other
trades or rules of bodies having jurisdiction shall be made by Subcontractor
at his own expense. Drawings have been prepared from existing drawings
with intent of providing the Contractor with all information possible con-
cerning the existing conditions. Data shown has not been completely veri-
fied by Engineer and no guarantee of accuracy of this information is given
or intended. It shall be the responsibility of Contractor to verify all
existing conditions prior to bid. Data which is shown but proves to be
