SPECIFICATIONS AND DRAWINGS The Contractor shall keep on the work a copy of the drawings and specifications and shall at all times give the Contracting Officer access thereto. Anything mentioned in the specifications and not shown on the drawings, Or shown on the drawings and not mentioned in the specifica tions, shall be of like effect as if shown or mentioned in both. In case of difference between drawings and specifi cations, the specifications shall govern. In any case of discrepancy either in the figures, in the drawings, or in the specifications, the matter shall be promptly submitted to the Contracting Officer, who shall promptly make a deter mination in writing. Any adjustment by the Contractor without this determination shall be at his own risk and expense. The Contracting Officer shall furnish from time to time such detail drawings and other information as he may consider necessary, unless otherwise provided. 3. CHANGES The Contracting Officer may at any time, by a written order, and without notice to the sureties, make changes in the drawings and/or specifications of this contract and within the general scope thereof. If such changes cause an increase Or decrease in the amount due under this con tract, or in the time required for its performance, an equit able adjustment shall be made and the contract shall be modified in writing accordingly. Any claim of the Con tractor for adjustment under this clause must be asserted in writing within 30 days from the date of receipt by the Contractor of the notification of change: Provided, however, That the Contracting Officer, if he determines that the facts justify such action, may receive and consider, and adjust any such claim asserted at any time prior to the date of final settlement of the contract. If the parties fail to agree upon the adjustment to be made the dispute shall be determined as provided in Clause 6 hereof. But nothing provided in this clause shall excuse the Contractor from proceeding with the prosecution of the work as changed. Except as otherwise herein provided, no charge for any extra work Or material will be aHowed. 4. CHANGED CONDITIONS The Contractor shall promptly, and before such con ditions are disturbed, notify the Contracting Officer in writing of: (1) subsurface or latent physical conditions at the site differing materiaHy from those indicated in this contract, or (2) unknown physical conditions at the site, of an unusual nature, differing materially from those ordinarily encountered and generally recognized as inhering in work of the character provided for in this contract. The Contracting Officer shaH promptly investigate the conditions, and if he finds that such conditions do SO materially differ and cause an increase Or decrease in the cost of, or the time required for, performance of this contract, an equitable ad.iustment shaH be made and the contract modified in writing accordingly. Any claim of the Contractor for adjustment hereunder shall not be allowed unless he has given notice as above required; provided that the Contracting Officer may, if he determines the facts so justify, consider and adjust any such claim asserted before the date of final settlement of the contract. If the parties fail to agree upon the adjustment to be made, the dispute shall be determined as provided in Clause 6 hereof. S. TERMINATION FOR DEFAULT-DAMAGES FOR DELAY-TIME EXTENSIONS (a) If the Contractor refuses or fails to prOsecute the work, or any separable part thereof, with such diligence as will insure its completion within the time specified in this contract, or any extension thereof, or fails to complete said work within such time, the Government may, by written notice to the Contractor, terminate his right to proceed with the work or such part of the work as to which there has been delay. In suc'! event the Government may take over the work and prosecute the same to completion, by contract or otherwise, and the Contractor and his sureties shall be liable to the Government for any excess cost occa sioned the Government thereby, and for liquidated damages for delay, as fixed in the specifications or accompanying papers, until such reasonable time as may be required for the final completion of the work, or if liquidated damages are not so fixed, any actual damages occasioned by such delay. If the Contractor's right to proceed is so terminated, the Government may take possession of and utilize in completing the work such materials, appliances, and plant as may be on the site of the work and necessary therefor. (b) If the Government does not terminate the right of the Contractor to proceed, as provided in paragraph (a) hereof, the Contractor shall continue the work, in which event he and his sureties shall be liable to the Government, in the amount set forth in the specifications or accompany ing papers, for fixed, agreed, and liquidated damages for each calendar day of delay until the WOrk is completed Or accepted, Or if liquidated damages are not SO fixed, any actual damages occasioned by such delay. (c) The right of the Contractor to proceed shall not be terminated, as provided in paragraph (a) hereof, nor the Contractor charged with liquidated or actual damages, as provided in paragraph (b) hereof because of any delays in the completion of the work due to unforeseeable causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the Contractor, including, but not restricted to, acts of God, or of the public enemy, acts of the Government, in either its sovereign or contractual capacity, acts of another contractor in the performance of a contract with the Government, fires, floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, freight embargoes, and unusually severe weather, or delays of subcontractors Or suppliers due to such causes: Prov'-ded, That the Contractor shall within 10 days from the beginning of any such delay, unless the Contracting Officer shall grant a further period of time prior to the date of final settlement of the contract, notify the Contracting Officer in writing of the causes of delay. The Contracting Officer shall ascertain the facts and the extent of the delay and extend the time for completing the work when in his judgment the findings of fact justify such an exten sion, and his findings of fact thereon shall be final and conclusive on the parties hereto, subject only to appeal as provided in Clause 6 hereof. 6 DISPUTES Except as otherwise provided in this contract, any dispute concerning a question of fact arising under this contract which is not disposed of by agreement shall be decided by the Contracting Officer, who shall reduce his decision to writing and mail or otherwise furnish a copy thereof to the Contractor. Within 30 days from the date of receipt of such copy, the Contractor may appeal by mailing or otherwise furnishing to the Contracting Officer a written appeal addressed to the head of the department, and the decision of the head of the department Or his duly authorized representatives for the hearings of such appeals shall, unless determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been fraudulent, arbitrary, capricious, Or so grossly erroneous as necessarily to imply bad faith, be final and conclusive: Provided, That, if no such appeal to the head


of the department is taken, the decision of the Contracting Officer shall be final and conclusive. In connection with any appeal proceeding under this clause, the Contractor shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard and to offer evidence in support of its appeal. Pending final decision of a dispute hereunder, the Contractor shall proceed dili gently with the performance of the contract and in accordance with the Contracting Officer's decision. 7. PAYMENTS TO CONTRACTORS (a) Unless otherwise provided in the specifications, partial payments will be made as the work progresses at the end of each calendar month, or as soon thereafter as practicable, or at more frequent intervals as determined by the Contracting Officer, on estimates made and approved by the Contracting Officer. In preparing estimates the material delivered on the site and preparatory work done may be taken into consideration. (b) In making such partial payments there shall be retained 10 percent on the estimated amount until final completion and acceptance of all work covered by the contract: Provided, however, That the Conti acting Officer, at any time after 50 percent of the work has been completed, if he finds that satisfactory progress is being made, may make any of the remaining partial payments in full: And provided further, That on completion and acceptance of each separate building, public work, or other division of the contract, on which the price is stated separately in the contract: payment may be made in full, including retained percentage thereon, less authorized deductions. (c) All material and work covered by partial payments made shaH thereupon become the sole property of the Government, but this provision shaH not be construed as relieving the Contractor from the sole responsibility for all materials and work upon which payments have been made Or the restoration of any damaged work, or as a waiver of the right of the Government to require the fulfillment of all of the terms of the contract. (d) Upon completion and acceptance of all work required hereunder, the amount due the Contractor under this contract wiH be paid upon the presentation of a properly executed SRg gOlly sutitiuQ voucher therefor, after the Contractor shall have furnished the Government with a release, if required, of all claims against the Government arising under and by virtue of this contract, other than such claims, if any, as may be specifically excepted by the Contractor from the operation of the release in stated amounts to be set forth therein. If the Contractor's claim to amounts payable under the contract has been assigned under the Assignment of Claims Act of 1940, as amended (41 U. S. C. 15), a release may also be required of the assignee at the option of the Contracting Officer. 8. MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP Unless otherwise specifically provided for in the specifications, all equipment, materials, and articles incorporated in the work covered by this contract are to be new and of the most suitable grade of their respective kinds for the purpose and all workmanship shall be first class.

The Contractor shall furnish to the Contracting Officer for his approval the name of the manufacturer of machinery, mechanical and other equipment which he contemplates incorporating in the work, together with their performance capacities and other pertinent information. When required by the specifications, or when called for by the Contracting Officer, the Contractor shall furnish the Contracting Officer for approval full information concerning the materials or articles which he contemplates incorporating in the work. Samples of materials shall be submitted for approval when so directed. Machinery, equipment, materials, and articles installed or uscd without such approval shall be at the risk of subsequent rejection. The Contracting Officer may in writing require the Contractor to remove from the work such employee as the Contracting Officer deems incompetent, careless, insubordinate, or otherwise objectionable, or whose continued employment on the work is deemed by the Contracting Officer to be contrary to the public interest. 9 INSPECTION (a) Except as otherwise provided in paragraph (d) hereof all material and workmanship, if not otherwise designated by the specifications, shaH be subject to inspection, examination, and test by the Contracting Officer at any and all times during manufacture and/or construction and at any and all places where such manufacture and/or construction are carried on. The Government shall have the right to reject defective material and workmanship or require its correction. Rejected workmanship shall be satisfactorily corrected and rejected material shall be satisfactorily replaced with proper material without charge therefor, and the Contractor shall promptly segregate and remove the rejected material from the premises. If the Contractor fails to proceed at once with the replacement of rejected material and/or the correction of defective workmanship the Government may, by contract Or otherwise, replace such material and/or correct such workmanship and charge the cost thereof to the Contractor, or may terminate the right of the Contractor to proceed as provided in Clause 5 of this contract, the Contractor and surety being liable for any damage to the same extent as provided in said Clause 5 for terminations thereunder. (b) The Contractor shall furnish promptly without additional charge, all reasonable facilities, labor, and materials necessary for the safe and convenient inspeci:ion and test that may be required by the Contracting Officer. All inspection and tests by the Government shall be performed in such manner as not unnecessarily to delay the work. Special, full size, and performance tests shall be as described in the specifications. The Contractor shall be charged with any additional cost of inspection when material and workmanship are not ready at the time inspection is requested by the Contractor. (c) Should it be considered necessary Or advisable by the Government at any time before final acceptance of the entire work to make an examination of work already completed, by removing or tearing out same, the Contractor shall on request promptly furnish all necessary facilities, labor, and material. If such work is found to be defective or nonconforming in any material respect, due to fault of the Contractor Or his subcontractors, he shall defray all the expenses of such examination and of satisfactory reconstruction. If, however, such work is found to meet the requirements of the contract, the actual direct cost of labor and material necessarily involved in the examination and 'replacement, plus 15 percent, shall be allowed the Contractor and he shall, in addition, if completion of the work has been delayed thereby, be granted a suitable extension of time on account of the additional work involved. (d) Inspection of material and finished articles to be incorporated in the work at the site shall be made at the place of production, manufacture, or shipment, whenever the quantity justifies it, unless otherwise stated in the specifications; and such inspection and written or other formal acceptance, unless otherwise stated in the specifications, shall be final, eKcept as regards latent defects, departures from specific requirements of the contract, damage or loss in transit, fraud, or such gross mistakes as amount to fraud. Subject to the requirements contained in the preceding sentence, the inspection of material and workmanship for final acceptance as a whole or in part shall be made at the site. Nothing contained in this paragraph (d) shall in any way restrict the Government's rights under any warranty or guarantee. 10. SUPERINTENDENCE BY CONTRACTOR The Contractor shaH give his personal superintendence to the work or have a competent foreman or superintendent, satisfactory to the Contracting Officer, on the work at all times during progress, with authority to act for him. 2

ADDITIONAL BOND SECURITY Ifany surety upon any bond furnished in connection with this contract becomes unacceptable to the Government, or if any such surety fails to furnish reports as to his finan cial condition from time to time as requested by the Government, the Contractor shall promptly furnish such additional security as may be required from time to time to protect the interests of the Government and of persons supplying labor or materials in the prosecution of the work contemplated by this contract. 15.

Any explanation desired by bidders regarding the meaning or interpretation of the drawings and specifications must be requested in writing and with sufficient time aUowed for a reply to reach them before the submission of their bids. Oral explanations or instructions given before the award of the contract will not be binding. Any interpretation made wiU be in the form of an addendum to the speci fications or drawings and will be furnished to all bidders and its receipt by the bidder shall be acknowledged. 2. Conditions at Site of Work. Bidders should visit the site to ascertain pertinent local conditions readily determined by inspection and inquiry, such as the location, accessibility and general character of the site, labor conditions, the character and extent of existing work within or adjacent thereto, and any other work being per formed thereon. 3. Bidder's Qualifications. Before a bid is considered for award, the bidder may'be requested by the Government to submit a statement of facts in detail as to his previous experience in performing similar or comparable work, and of his business and technical organization and financial resources and plant available and to be used in performing the contemplated work. 4. Bid Guaranty. Where security is required, failure to submit the same with the bid may be cause for rejection. The bidder, at his option, may furnish a bid bond, postal money order, certified check, or cashier's check, or may deposit, in accordance with Treasury Department regula tions, bonds or notes of the United States (at par value) as security in the amount required: Provided, That where the total amount of the bid is $2,000 or less, the contracting agency may declare a bid bond unacceptable by so stating in the specifications or Invitation for Bids. In case security is in the form of postal money order, certified check, cashier's check, or bonds or notes o f the United States, the Government may make such disposition of the same as will ac complish the purpose for which submitted. Checks may be held uncollected at the bidder's risk. Checks, or the amounts thereof, and bonds or notes of the United States deposited by unsuccessful bidders will be returned as soon as practicable after the opening. 5. Preparation of Bids. (a) Bids shall be submitted on the forms furnished, or copies thereof, and must be manually signed. If erasures or other changes appear on the forms, each such erasure or change must be initialed by the person signing the bid. (b) The form of bid will provide for quotation of a price, or prices, for one or more items which may be lump sum bids, alternate prices, scheduled items resulting in a bid on a unit of construction or a combination thereof, etc. Where required on the bid form, bidders must quote on all items and they are warned that failure to do so may disqualify the bid. When quotations on all items are not required, bidders should insert the words "no bid" in the space provided for any item on which no quotation is made. (c) Alternative bids will not be considered unless called for. (cI) Unless specifically called for, telegraphic \bids will not be considered. Modification by telegraph of bids already submitted will be considered if received prior to the time fixed in the Invitation for Bids. Telegraphic modifications shall not reveal the amount of the original or revised bid. 6. Submission of Bids. Bids must be submitted as directed on the bid form. 7 Receipt and of Bids. (a) Bids will be submitted prior to the time fixed in the Invitation for Bids.

Such late bids will be considered, Provided, They are received before the award has been made, Andprovided further, The failure to arrive on time was due solely to a delay in the mails for which the bidder was not responsible; otherwise late bids' will not be con

sidered but will be held unopened until the time of award and then returned to the bidder, unless other disposition is requested or agreed to by the bidder. (b) Subject to the prOVlSlons of paragraph 5(d) of these instructions, bids or bid modifica tions which were deposited for transmission by telegraph in time for receipt, by normal transmission procedure, prior to the time fixed in the Invitation for Bids and subsequently delayed by the telegraph company through no fault or neglect on the part of the bidder, will be considered if received prior to the award of the contract. The burden of proof of such abnormal delay will be upon the bidder and the decision as to whether or not the delay was so caused will rest with the officer awarding the contract. (c) No responsibility will attach to any officer for the premature opening of, or the failure to open, a bid not properly addressed and identified. 8. Withdrawals of Bids. Bids may be withdrawn on written or telegraphic 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. 9. Bidders Present. At the time fixed for the opening of bids, their contents will be made public for the information of bidders and others properly interested, who may be present either in person or by representative. 10. Bidders Interested in More than One Bid. If more than one bid be offered by anyone party, by or in the name of his or their clerk, partner, or other person, all such bids will be rejected. A party who has quoted prices to a bidder is not thereby disqualified from quoting prices to other bidders or from submitting a bid directly for the work. 11. Award of Contract. (a) The contract will be awarded as soon as practicable to the lowest responsible bidder, price and other factors considered, provided his bid is reasonable and it is to the interest of the Government to accept it. (b) The Government reserves the right to waive any informality in bids received when such waiver is in the interest of the Government. In case of error in the extension of prices, the unit price will govern. (c) The Government further reserves the right to accept or reject any or all items of any bid, unless the bidder qualifies such bid by specific limitation; also to make an award to the bidder whose aggregate bid on any combination of bid items is low. 12. Rejection of Bids.
