In such situations the prime contractor and HUB vendor are entering (have entered) into “new” contracts.

Rev. 10/14

HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) In accordance with Texas Gov’t Code §2161.252, the contracting agency has determined that subcontracting opportunities are probable under this contract. Therefore, all respondents, including State of Texas certified Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) must complete and submit this State of Texas HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) with their response to the bid requisition (solicitation).

NOTE: Responses that do not include a completed HSP shall be rejected pursuant to Texas Gov’t Code §2161.252(b). The HUB Program promotes equal business opportunities for economically disadvantaged persons to contract with the State of Texas in accordance with the goals specified in the 2009 State of Texas Disparity Study. The statewide HUB goals defined in 34 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §20.13 are: •

11.2 percent for heavy construction other than building contracts,



21.1 percent for all building construction, including general contractors and operative builders’ contracts,



32.9 percent for all special trade construction contracts,



23.7 percent for professional services contracts,



26.0 percent for all other services contracts, and



21.1 percent for commodities contracts.

- - Agency Special Instructions/Additional Requirements - ­ In accordance with 34 TAC §20.14(d)(1)(D)(iii), a respondent (prime contractor) may demonstrate good faith effort to utilize Texas certified HUBs for its subcontracting opportunities if the total value of the respondent’s subcontracts with Texas certified HUBs meets or exceeds the statewide HUB goal or the agency specific HUB goal, whichever is higher. When a respondent uses this method to demonstrate good faith effort, the respondent must identify the HUBs with which it will subcontract. If using existing contracts with Texas certified HUBs to satisfy this requirement, only contracts that have been in place for five years or less shall qualify for meeting the HUB goal. This limitation is designed to encourage vendor rotation as recommended by the 2009 Texas Disparity Study. This project is classified as a Special Trade Construction contract; please use the Statewide HUB Goal of 32.9% for these types of contracts when completing the HUB Subcontracting Plan.

Aggregate percentages of the contract expected to be subcontracted:

*Continuous Contract: Any existing written agreement (including any renewals that are exercised) between a prime contractor and a HUB vendor, where the HUB vendor provides the prime contractor with goods or service under the same contract for a specified period of time. The frequency the HUB vendor is utilized or paid during the term of the contract is not relevant to whether the contract is considered continuous. Two or more contracts that run concurrently or overlap one another for different periods of time are considered by CPA to be individual contracts rather than renewals or extensions to the original contract. In such situations the prime contractor and HUB vendor are entering (have entered) into “new” contracts. HSP – SECTION 2 (Continuation Sheet)

Article III – Compliance with and Enforcement of Prevailing Wage Laws 3.1

Duty to Pay Prevailing Wage Rates

The Contractor shall pay not less than the wage scale of the various classes of labor as shown on the “Prevailing Wage Schedule” as determined by the Owner. The specified wage rates are minimum rates only. The Owner will not consider any claims for additional compensation made by any Contractor because the Contractor pays wages in excess of the applicable minimum rate contained in the Contract. The “Prevailing Wage Schedule” is not a representation that quantities of qualified labor adequate to perform the Work may be found locally at the specified wage rates. 3.1.1. For classifications not shown, workers shall not be paid less than the wage indicated for Laborers. The Contractor shall notify each worker commencing work on the contract the worker’s job classification and the established minimum wage rate required to be paid, as well as the actual amount being paid. The notice must be delivered to and signed in acknowledgement of receipt by the employee and must list both the monetary wages and fringe benefits to be paid or furnished for each classification in which the worker is assigned duties. When requested, competent evidence of compliance with the Texas Prevailing Wage Law, Chapter 2258, Texas Government Code shall be furnished.

3.1.3

A copy of the complete certified payroll of the Contractor and its subcontractors shall be submitted to the ODR with each application for progress payment. Prevailing Wage Schedule

The Federal Davis-Bacon Act wage rates shall apply as the “Prevailing Wage Schedule” for all projects, which complies with Chapter 2258 of Texas Government Code. Additionally, if any federal funds are involved in the project, then the Federal Davis-Bacon Act applies in its entirety. Should the Contractor at any time become aware that a particular skill or trade not reflected on the Prevailing Wage Schedule will be or is being employed in the Work, whether by the Contractor or by a subcontractor, the Contractor shall promptly inform the ODR and contact the United States Department of Labor directly to request clarification on wage rates for trades or skills not specifically identified the Prevailing Wage Schedule, however in any event the Contractor shall not pay less than the wage indicated for Laborers. 3.3

Penalty for Violation

The Contractor and any Subcontractor shall pay to the State a penalty of sixty dollars ($60.00) for each worker employed for each calendar day, or portion thereof, that the worker is paid less than the wage rates stipulated in the Prevailing Wage Schedule or any supplement thereto pursuant to §3.2. The Contractor and each Subcontractor shall keep, or cause to be kept, an accurate record showing the names and occupations of all workers employed in connection with the Work, and showing the actual per diem wages paid to each worker, which records shall be open at all reasonable hours for the inspection by the Owner. 3.4

Complaints of Violations of Prevailing Wage Rates 3.4.1. Owner’s Determination of Good Cause. Within 31 days of receipt of information concerning a violation of Chapter 2258, Texas Government Code, the Owner shall make an initial determination as to whether good cause exists to believe a violation occurred. The Owner’s decision on the initial determination shall be reduced to writing and sent to the Contractor or Subcontractor against whom the violation was alleged, and to the affected worker. When a good cause finding is made, the Owner shall retain the full amounts claimed by the claimant or claimants as the difference between wages paid and wages due under the Prevailing Wage Schedule and any supplements thereto, together with the applicable penalties, such amounts being subtracted from successive progress payments pending a final decision on the violation. 3.4.2. Arbitration Required if Violation not Resolved. After the Owner makes its initial determination, the affected Contractor or Subcontractor and worker have 14 days in which to resolve the issue of whether a violation occurred, including the amount that should be retained by Owner or paid to the affected worker. If the Contractor or Subcontractor and affected worker reach an agreement concerning the worker’s claim, the Contractor shall promptly notify the Owner in a written document signed by the worker. If the Contractor or Subcontractor and affected worker do not agree before the 15th day after the Owner’s determination, the Contractor or Subcontractor and affected worker must participate in binding arbitration in accordance with the Texas General Arbitration Act, Chapter 171, Tex. Civ. Prac. & Updated February 4, 2014 Page 6

Rev. Code. The parties to the arbitration have 10 days after the expiration of the 15 days referred to above, to agree on an arbitrator; if by the 11th day there is no agreement to an arbitrator, a district court shall appoint an arbitrator on the petition of any of the parties to the arbitration. 3.4.3. Arbitration Award. If an arbitrator determines that a violation has occurred, the arbitrator shall assess and award against the Contractor or Subcontractor the amount of penalty as provided in §3.3 thereof and the amount owed the worker. The Owner may use any amounts retained under §3.4.1 hereof to pay the worker the amount as designated in the arbitration award. If the Owner has not retained enough from the Contractor or Subcontractor to pay the worker in accordance with the arbitration award, the worker has a right of action against the Contractor and Subcontractor as appropriate, and the surety of either to receive the amount owed, attorney’s fees and court costs. The Contractor shall promptly furnish a copy of the arbitration award to the Owner. 3.5

Prevailing Wage Retainage

Money retained pursuant to §3.4 shall be used to pay the claimant or claimants the difference between the amount the worker received in wages for labor on the Project at the rate paid by the Contractor or Subcontractor and the amount the worker would have received at the general prevailing wage rate as provided by the agreement of the claimant and the Contractor or Subcontractor affected, or in the arbitrator’s award. The full statutory penalty of $60.00 per day of violation per worker shall be retained by the Owner to offset its administrative costs, pursuant to Texas Government Code §2258.023. Any retained funds in excess of these amounts shall be paid to the Contractor on the earlier of the next progress payment or final payment. Provided, however, that the Owner shall have no duty to release any funds to either the claimant or the Contractor until it has received the notices of agreement or the arbitration award as provided under §§3.4.2 and 3.4.3. 3.6

No Extension of Time

If the Owner determines that good cause exists to believe that a violation has occurred, the Contractor shall not be entitled to an extension of time for any delay arising directly or indirectly from of the procedures set forth in §3.4. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article IV – Drawings and Specifications 4.1

Ownership of Drawings and Specifications

All Drawings, Specifications, and copies thereof furnished by the Architect/Engineer are, and shall remain, property of the Architect/Engineer. They are not to be used on any other project by the Contractor and, with the exception of one contract set, are to be returned to the Architect/Engineer, upon request, following completion of the Work. 4.2

Copies Furnished

The Contractor will be furnished free of charge the number of complete sets of the Contract Drawings and Specifications before on-site work commences as provided in the Supplementary General Conditions or Special Conditions. Additional complete sets of Drawings and Specifications, if requested, will be furnished at reproduction cost plus ten percent (10%) handling fee to the one requesting such additional sets. The Contractor shall furnish to the Owner one complete set of Drawings and Specifications, with all addenda properly posted, no later than twenty (20) days after the date of Notice to Proceed. 4.3

Interrelation of Documents

The Drawings depict the location and quantity of elements of the work. The specifications indicate quality. All documents are intended to be complimentary to produce the Work. 4.4

Resolution of Conflicts in Documents 4.4.1. In the event of conflict between or among Drawings and Specifications, the better quality or greatest quantity shall prevail. In the event of conflict among provisions of Specifications, using the CSI format, what is called for in the division of the predominant discipline will govern inconsistent provisions found elsewhere. 4.4.2.

4.5

In the event of conflict among the drawings, the large-scale drawings prevail over the small-scale drawings.

Contractor’s Duty to Review Contract Documents

In order to facilitate its responsibilities for completion of the Work in accordance with and as reasonably inferable from the Contract Documents, prior to commencing the Work, the Contractor shall examine and compare: the Contract Documents; information furnished by the Owner pursuant to §4.7; relevant field measurements made by the Contractor; and any visible conditions at the Site affecting the Work. 4.6

Discrepancies and Omissions in Drawings and Specifications 4.6.1. If in the course of the performance of the obligations in §4.5, the Contractor discovers any errors, omissions or inconsistencies in the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall promptly report them to the Owner and the Architect/Engineer. It is recognized, however, that the Contractor is not acting in the capacity of a licensed design professional, and that the Contractor’s examination is to facilitate construction and does not create an affirmative responsibility to detect errors, omission, or inconsistencies or to ascertain compliance with applicable laws, building codes, or regulations. 4.6.2. The Contractor has no liability for errors, omissions, or inconsistencies described in §§4.5 and 4.6.1 unless the Contractor knowingly failed to report a recognized problem to the Owner. If, however, the Contractor fails to perform the examination and reporting obligations of these provisions, the Contractor shall be responsible for any avoidable costs or direct damages. 4.6.3. The Contractor shall propose the most practical solution to resolve the conflict or omission requiring the minimum schedule and budget impact and furthering the best interest of the project. The Owner and Architect/Engineer shall evaluate the proposed solution and provide a response to Contractor.

This Contractor shall cooperate with the separate contractors and Owner’s own forces. This Contractor shall properly connect and coordinate its Work with the work of the separate contractors as defined in these Contract Documents. If any part of this Contractor’s work depends for proper execution or proper results on the work of any of the separate contractors, this Contractor shall inspect and promptly report in writing to the ODR any visually apparent discrepancies or defects found in such other work that render it unsuitable for such proper execution and results. Failure of this Contractor to so inspect and report the visually apparent discrepancies or defects shall constitute an acceptance of the separate contractor’s work as fit and proper to receive the Contractor’s Work, except as to defects which may develop in the separate contractor’s work after the execution of this Contractor’s Work. 8.1.2. Delay of Damages. Should this Contractor cause delay or damage to the Work or property of any separate contractor on the Project, this Contractor shall, upon due written notice, endeavor to settle with the separate contractor by agreement. If such separate contractor does not settle with this Contractor, the Owner shall initiate a Dispute Resolution process and each party to the dispute shall be financially accountable for any damages or loss based on their proportionate fault determined by the Dispute Resolution process. 8.1.3. Access. This Contractor shall afford the Owner, the Architect/Engineer, the separate contractors and Owner’s own forces, as necessary, with the reasonable opportunity for the introduction and storage of their materials and equipment and the execution of their work. 8.1.4. Owners Rights. The Owner reserves the right to make essential installations that are pertinent to the early use of the building or project. Within this right, the Owner may let other contracts or may do such work with its own labor forces and materials. The Contractor shall not commit or permit any act that will interfere with the performance of work by any other Contractor or supplier, or by Owner’s employees. The Contractor shall cooperate to the end that the Owner may realize complete functioning of the building or project on the day of substantial completion. 8.2

Coordination

The Owner shall provide for coordination of the activities of the Owner’s own forces and of each separate contractor with the Work of this Contractor, who shall cooperate with them. This Contractor shall participate with other separate contractors and the Owner in reviewing the respective construction schedules, when directed to do so.

All subcontracts shall expressly bind subcontractors to the same duty. On receiving such notice, the ODR shall promptly engage qualified experts to make such investigations and conduct such tests as may be reasonably necessary to determine the existence or extent of any environmental hazard. As soon as possible upon completion of this investigation, the ODR shall issue a written report to the Contractor identifying the material or materials found and indicating any necessary steps to be taken to treat, handle, transport or dispose of the material. The Owner may hire third-party contractors to perform any or all such steps. Should compliance with the ODR’s instructions result in an increase in the Contractor’s cost of performance, or delay the Work, an adjustment in the contract price or time may be claimed by the Contractor pursuant to the provisions of Article XX, XXI, XXII and XXIII. 9.4.1. Notification.

The Contractor shall promptly correct all Work rejected by the Owner or Architect/Engineer as defective or as failing to conform to the Contract Documents whether observed before or after the Date of Substantial Completion or final inspection and acceptance and whether or not fabricated, installed or completed. The Contractor shall bear all costs of correcting such rejected Work. The costs of such corrective work shall also include reimbursement by the Contractor to the Owner of the amount of the fee to be paid by the Owner to the Architect/Engineer for the extra services of the Architect/Engineer in performing its responsibilities to the Owner relative to such corrective work. 12.3.2.2. If the Contractor does not promptly complete the Work, replace rejected material or correct rejected workmanship, the Owner may, 1) by separate contract or otherwise, replace such material or correct such workmanship and charge the cost thereof to the Contractor, or 2) terminate the Contractor’s employment in accordance with Article XXV, Contract Termination.

If any portion of the Work is concealed by subsequent work without notification to the Owner as set forth in §12.2.3 contrary to the instructions of the Owner or Architect/Engineer or to the requirements specifically expressed in the Contract Documents, it must be uncovered for observation and recovered at the Contractor’s expense. 12.3.2.4. If any other portion of the Work has been covered which the Owner or Architect/Engineer has not specifically requested or is not specifically indicated elsewhere in the Contract Documents to observe prior to being covered, either may request to see such Work and it shall be uncovered by the Contractor. If such Work is found to be in accordance with the Contract Documents, the cost of uncovering and recovering shall, by appropriate Change Order, be charged to Owner. If such Work is found not to be in accordance with the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall pay such costs including the amount of fee to be paid by the Owner to the Architect/Engineer for extra services related to such non-complying Work. 12.3.3. Upon notice of condemnation, the Contractor may request to prove to Owner and the Architect/Engineer, at Contractor’s sole cost, that the Work should be accepted because it meets performance, and other relevant standards. The Contractor shall have ten (10) working days from receipt of the notice to present documentation to prove compliance. Owner shall respond to Contractor’s showing of proof in writing within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of Contractor’s documentation. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article XIV – Closing Inspections 14.1

Substantial Completion Inspection

When the Contractor considers the entire Work or part thereof Substantially Complete, the Contractor shall inspect the Work, or designated portion thereof, for compliance with the Contract Documents and notify the ODR and the Architect/Engineer in writing that the Work will be ready for Substantial Completion Inspection on a date certain. The Contractor shall include with this notice a copy of its updated Punch List marked to indicate corrected items and items to be completed or corrected prior to final inspection which the Contractor recognizes exist but believes do not prevent the Work or part thereof from being Substantially Complete, and shall request a Substantial Completion Inspection for the Work or designated portion thereof. The failure to include any items on such list does not alter the responsibility of the Contractor to complete all Work in accordance with the Contract Documents. The Architect/Engineer and the Owner will review the Contractor’s list of items to be completed and either will schedule the requested inspection or will inform the Contractor in writing that such an inspection would be premature because the Work is not sufficiently advanced or that conditions are not as represented on the Contractor’s list. 14.1.1. Prior to the substantial completion inspection, the Contractor shall furnish to the Owner a copy of the AsBuilt blueline prints and specifications and a preliminary copy of each instructional manual, O&M, parts catalog, wiring diagrams, spare parts, specified written warranties and like publications or parts for all installed equipment, systems and like items, and documents including, but not limited to, those documents required under section 4.8.4 of the Uniform General Conditions. If the Contractor does not furnish these requirements and the Owner must of necessity otherwise obtain this information and data, the costs for obtaining it will be deducted from payments otherwise due the Contractor. The substantial completion inspection will be jointly conducted by the Architect/Engineer, the Owner, the User, and the Contractor. 14.1.2. On the date indicated by Contractor, or as soon thereafter as is practicable, the ODR, the Architect/Engineer, and the Contractor shall inspect the work and if the ODR and the Architect/Engineer determines that the Work is Substantially Complete a Certificate of Substantial Completion shall be issued by the Architect/Engineer for certification by the Owner, Architect/Engineer and Contractor, fixing the date of Substantial Completion. The Architect/Engineer will provide with this certificate a list of items to be completed prior to final inspection (the Pre-Final Punch List). This list may include additional items not included on the Contractor’s list, which are deemed necessary by the Architect/Engineer or by the Owner to correct or complete prior to Final Inspection. 14.2

Final Inspection

The Contractor shall fully complete the list of items listed on the Pre-final Punch List prior to Final Inspection. Unless otherwise specified in Special Conditions, or otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, the Contractor shall complete this work within thirty (30) days of the certified date of Substantial Completion. When the Contractor has completed the Prefinal Punch List, he shall give written notice to the ODR and Architect/Engineer that the Work will be ready for Final Inspection on a date certain. This notice shall be accompanied by a copy of the Contractor’s updated Punch List with corrected items crossed out, confirming resolution of all items. On this date, or as soon thereafter as is practicable, the ODR, the Architect/Engineer and the Contractor shall inspect the Work and the Architect/Engineer shall submit to the Contractor a list of items which the Owner and the Architect/Engineer have determined to require correction or completion before the Work will be accepted by the Owner (the Final Punch List). 14.3

Final Punch List

The Contractor shall correct or complete all items on the Final Punch List before Acceptance and Final Payment. Unless otherwise specified in Special Conditions, or otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, the Contractor shall complete this work within seven (7) days of receiving the Final Punch List. Upon completion of the Final Punch List, the Contractor shall notify the Architect/Engineer and ODR in writing stating the disposition of each Punch List item, and the Architect/Engineer and Owner shall promptly inspect the completed items. When the Final Punch List has been completed, and the Contract is fully performed according to the Contract Documents, and is acceptable to the Owner, the ODR and/or the Architect/Engineer may issue a certificate fixing the date of Final Completion. Final Completion of all Work shall be a condition precedent to the Contractor’s right to receive Final Payment. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

14.4

Annotation

Any Certificate issued under this Article may be annotated to indicate that it is not applicable to specified portions of the Work, or that it is subject to any limitation as determined by the Owner. 14.5

Purpose of Inspection

Inspection by the Owner and Architect/Engineer is for the purpose of determining the completion of the Work, and does not relieve the Contractor of its overall responsibility for completing the Work in a good and workmanlike fashion, in compliance with the Contract Documents. Failure of the Owner or Architect/Engineer to identify Work that is not in compliance with the Contract Documents, or which is defective in operation or workmanship, or acceptance of the Work with Punch List items left incomplete, does not constitute a waiver of such a defect or of the Owner’s rights under the Contract Documents or relieve the Contractor of its warranties contained in Article XVII. 14.6

Additional Inspections

14.6.1. If on the basis of the Substantial Completion Inspection, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer determines that the Work is not Substantially Complete, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall give the Contractor written notice thereof, and shall inform the Contractor what Work was found to be incomplete, out of compliance with the Contract Documents, or defective in operation or workmanship, and setting a time in which incomplete or defective work is to be completed. The Contractor shall complete or correct all Work so designated prior to requesting a second Substantial Completion Inspection. 14.6.2. If on the basis of the Final Inspection, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer determines that the Work is not complete according to the Contract Documents, or that the Work required by the Prefinal Punch List had not been performed, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall give the Contractor written notice thereof, and shall inform the Contractor what Work was found to be incomplete, out of compliance with the Contract Documents or defective in operation or workmanship, and setting a time in which incomplete or defective Work is to be completed. The Contractor shall complete or correct all Work so designated prior to requesting a second Final Inspection. 14.6.3. This Agreement contemplates three inspections only; the Substantial Completion Inspection, the Final Completion Inspection, and the Inspection of Completed Final Punch List Items. The cost to the Owner or any and all additional inspections deemed necessary by the ODR or the Architect/Engineer because the Work was not ready for one or more of these inspections shall be borne by the Contractor, and the Owner may issue a Unilateral Change Order deducting these costs from Final Payment. Upon the Contractor’s written request, the Owner shall furnish documentation of all costs so deducted. Work added to the Contract by Change Order after Final Inspection shall not be considered as corrective work for purposes of determining timely completion or assessing the cost of additional inspections. 14.7

Phased Completion

The Special Conditions may provide, or other project conditions may warrant, as determined by the ODR, that designated elements or parts of the Work shall or may be completed in phases. Where phased completion is required or specifically agreed to by the parties, the provisions of Article XIV (Closing Inspections) and Article XV (Early Occupancy) shall apply independently to each designated element or part of the project. For all other purposes, unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, Substantial Completion of the Work as a whole shall be the date on which the last element or part of the Work to be completed is certified as Substantially Complete, and Final Completion of the Work as a whole shall be the date on which the last element or part of the Work to be completed is certified as Finally Complete.

Article XV – Early Occupancy 15.1

Right of Occupancy

The Owner may occupy or use all or any portion of the Work following Substantial Completion, or at any earlier stage of completion, provided that such occupancy or use is consented to by any and all insurers of the Work. Should the Owner wish to use or occupy the Work, or part thereof, prior to Substantial Completion, the ODR shall so notify the Contractor in writing. Work performed on the premises by third parties on the Owner’s behalf does not constitute occupation or use of the Work by the Owner for purposes of this Article. 15.2

Occupancy of Substantially Completed Work

If the Owner wished to occupy all or part of the Work that has been Substantially Completed it shall so notify the Contractor and the Architect/Engineer prior to the Substantial Completion Inspection, and the ODR shall annotate the Certificate of Substantial Completion to set out, pursuant to §§14.4, 14.6 or the parties’ written agreement, the responsibilities of the Owner and the Contractor for maintenance, heat, utilities, operation of permanent equipment, and insurance. The Certificate of Substantial Completion shall be submitted to the Architect/Engineer and Contractor for their written acceptance of the responsibilities assigned to each of them in such Certificate. The accepted Certificate shall not constitute a change in Contract Time that can only be modified by an agreed Change Order. See Article XX. 15.3

Occupancy of Work Prior to Substantial Completion

15.3.1. Notice and Early Occupancy Proposal. If the Owner determines that substantial hardship will result if it is unable to occupy some portion of the Work prior to Substantial Completion, it shall so inform the Architect/Engineer and the Contractor no less than 30 days before the date the Owner wishes to occupy the Work, and designate those portions of the Work to be occupied and the uses to be made of the occupied premises. As soon as practicable, but not less than five working days after receiving this notice, the Contractor shall make the designated portions of the Work available to the Architect/Engineer and the Owner for observation. The Architect/Engineer and the Owner shall observe the Work jointly with the Contractor. As soon as practicable, but not later than the third day next following the date of the inspection, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall prepare and submit to the Contractor an Early Occupancy Proposal, specifying any Work that must be completed or corrected as well as any operation and maintenance manuals or other documentation necessary for the Work to be occupied by the Owner and used for the purposes designated by the Owner in its notice, and setting out the division of responsibility between the Owner and the Contractor for utilities, security, maintenance, insurance and liability for damage to the Work or damage arising from the condition of the Work. The Early Occupancy Proposal shall also specify whether the area to be occupied must be Substantially Complete before occupation, and shall specify the date for Substantial Completion of the Work to be occupied if other than the date previously specified by the Contract Documents. 15.3.2. Administration as Change Order. The Early Occupancy Proposal shall be administered as an Interim Change Authorization pursuant to the provisions of §21.4, except that the Contractor shall submit a CPE as soon as possible, but not later than the seventh day next following receipt of the Early Occupancy Proposal. All cost adjustment, including any increased costs of insurance, related to the Early Occupancy Proposal, shall be stated in the CPE; any such relief not so requested shall be deemed waived. If the Early Occupancy Proposal requires early Substantial Completion, the Contractor shall be entitled to an equitable cost adjustment for acceleration and impact costs, to be submitted pursuant to §22.2 (Type II Changes). If an early completion date is not required, the Contractor shall submit any claim for time extension as a Type I change in the Work and Interim Change Authorization. If by the date designated by the Owner as the proposed date of occupancy, the ODR and Contractor have not reached an agreement concerning adjustment of time or cost, or the division of responsibility for the occupied portions of the Work, the ODR may issue a ULCO. 15.3.3. Project Completion Administration with Early Occupancy. Where under the provisions of this Article the Contract Time is modified for any part of the Work due to early occupancy, then the provisions of §14.6 shall apply. All required documentation shall be furnished by the Contractor to the ODR on or before the date of occupation by the Owner. 15.3.4. Nonwaiver of Timely Completion. Early occupancy of any portion of the Work does not waive the Contractor’s duty to complete the remaining Work within the Contract Time as specified by the Contract Documents or as subsequently modified by Change Order.

Article XVI – Contract Final Acceptance and Payment 16.1

Request for Final Payment

At any time following the completion of all Work, including Punch List items, cleanup, and the delivery of record documents and other project close-out documents as required by the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall submit a certified Application for Final Payment, including all sums held as retainange, to the Architect/Engineer and the ODR for their review and approval. 16.2

Final Payment Documentation

The Contractor shall submit, prior to the Application for Final Payment, final copies of all close out documents, including maintenance and operating instructions, guarantees and warranties, certificates, As-Constructed documents and all other items required by the Contract Documents. The Contractor shall also submit Consent of Surety to Final Payment, an affidavit that all payrolls, bills for materials and equipment, subcontracted work and other indebtedness connected with the Work, except as specifically noted, have been paid or will be paid or otherwise satisfied within the period of time required by Chapter 2251, Texas Government Code. The contractor shall furnish documentation establishing payment or satisfaction of all such obligations, such as receipts, releases, and waivers of claims arising out of the Contract. The Owner is entitled to rely upon this affidavit; the Contractor may not submit a claim on behalf of a subcontractor or vendor if that claim has not been noted as an exception in the affidavit. 16.3

Architect/Engineer Approval

The Architect/Engineer shall review a submitted Application for Final Payment promptly but in no event later than ten (10) days after its receipt. Prior to the expiration of this deadline, Architect/Engineer shall either: 1) return the Application for Final Payment to Contractor with correction for action and resubmission; or 2) accept it, note his approval and send to Owner. 16.4

Offsets and Deductions

The Owner may deduct from the Final Payment all sums due from the Contractor for any reason, all deductions authorized by, §13.5, and as Liquidated Damages. If the Certificate of Final Completion notes any Work remaining incomplete or defects not remedied, the Owner may deduct the reasonable cost of remedying such deficiencies from the Final Payment. If such deductions are made, the Owner shall identify each deduction made and the reason therefore, and furnish the Contractor with an explanation of the deduction and the amount deducted on or by the 21st day after Owner’s receipt of an approved, or deemed approved Application for Final Payment. 16.5

Final Payment Due

All payments made by Owner shall be in accordance with Chapter 2251 of the Texas Government Code, the Prompt Payment Act. Thus, Final Payment shall become due and payable by Owner, subject to all allowable offsets and deductions, on the 31st day next following Owner’s approval of the Application for Payment. If the Contractor disputes any amount deducted by the Owner, the Contractor shall give notice of the dispute on or before the thirtieth day next following receipt of Final Payment; failure to do so will bar any subsequent claim for payment of amounts deducted. 16.6

Effect of Final Payment

Final Payment shall constitute a waiver of all claims by the Owner, relating to the condition of the Work except those arising from (1) faulty or defective Work appearing after Substantial Completion (latent defects); (2) failure of the Work to comply with the requirements of the Contract Documents; (3) terms of any warranties required by the Contract Documents or implied by law, and (4) claims arising from personal injury or property damage to third parties. Final Payment shall constitute a waiver of all claims by the Contractor except those specifically identified in writing and submitted to the ODR prior to the application for Final Payment. Provided, however, that the Contract shall not be deemed fully performed by the Contractor and closed until the expiration of all warranty periods. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article XVII – Contract Warranty and Guarantee 17.1

Contractor’s General Warranty and Guarantee

Contractor warrants to the Owner that all Work shall be executed in accordance with the Contract Documents, complete in all parts and in accordance with approved practices and customs, and of the best finish and workmanship. Unless otherwise specified, all materials and equipment incorporated in the Work under the Contract shall be new. The Owner may, at its option, agree in writing to waive any failure of the Work to conform to the Contract Documents, and to accept a reduction in the Contract Price for the cost of repair or diminution in value of the Work by reason of such defect. Absent such a written agreement, however, the Contractor’s obligation to perform and complete the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents shall be absolute and is not waived by any inspection or observation by the Owner, Architect/Engineer or others, by making any progress payment or final payment, except as provided in §16.6, by the use or occupancy of the Work or any portion thereof by the Owner, at any time, or by any repair or correction of such defect made by the Owner. 17.2

Warranty Period

Except as otherwise specified, the Contractor shall repair all defects in materials, equipment or workmanship appearing within one year from the date of Substantial Completion of the Work as a whole if such date establishes the beginning of the period of Owner occupancy and/or use of the Work, otherwise this warranty begins upon Final Completion and acceptance of the Work. Upon receipt of written notice from the Owner or the facility user of the discovery of any defects, the Contractor shall promptly and at its own cost remedy the defects and replace any property damaged therefrom and shall promptly provide written notice to the Owner and, to the extent applicable, the facility user indicating action taken to resolve the defect. In case of emergency where delay would cause serious risk of loss or damage to the Owner, or if the Contractor, after notice, fails to proceed promptly and remedy within 30 days or within another period of time which has been agreed to in writing, in compliance with the terms of the warranty and guarantee, the Owner may have the defects corrected and the Contractor and his surety shall be liable for all expenses incurred. 17.3

Separate Warranties

Where a particular piece of equipment or component of the Work for which a separate warranty is required under the Contract Documents is placed in continuous service before Substantial Completion, the date of service commencement shall be certified by the ODR and/or Architect/Engineer and the Warranty Period for that equipment or component shall run from the date so certified. In addition to the Contractor’s warranty and duty to repair, as set forth in §§17.1 and 17.2, the Contractor expressly assumes all warranty obligations required under the Contract Documents for specific building components, systems and equipment. The Contractor may satisfy any such obligation by obtaining and assigning to the Owner a complying warranty from a manufacturer, supplier, or subcontractor. Where an assigned warranty is tendered and accepted by the Owner which does not fully comply with the requirements of the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall remain liable to the Owner on all elements of the required warranty that are not provided by the assigned warranty. 17.4

Certification of No Asbestos Containing Materials or Work

Article XVIII – Good Faith Effort Subcontracting Program (HUBs) 18.1

General Program Description.

State agencies are required by statute to make a good faith effort to assist Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) in participating in contract awards issued by the State. The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (Comptroller) rules, 34 TAC 20.11-20.28, outline the state’s policy to encourage outreach to and potential utilization of HUBs in state contracting opportunities through race, ethnic, and gender neutral means. The goal of this program is to promote full and equal business opportunity for all businesses in state contracting in accordance with the goals specified in the State of Texas Disparity Study. A Contractor who contracts with the State in an amount in excess of $100,000 shall be required to make a good faith effort to award subcontracts to HUBs in accordance with Comptroller Rule 20.14 by submitting a HUB Subcontracting Plan at the time of bidding and complying with the Subcontracting Plan after it is accepted by the Owner and during the term of the Contract. 18.2

Compliance with Approved HUB Subcontracting Plan.

Contractor, having been awarded this Contract in part by complying with the HUB Program statute and rules, hereby covenants to continue to comply with the HUB Program as follows: Contractor shall: a. Prior to substituting a Subcontractor, promptly notify Owner in the event a change is required for any reason to the accepted HUB Subcontracting Plan; b. Conduct the good faith effort activities required and provide Owner with necessary documentation to justify approval of a change to the approved HUB Subcontracting Plan; c. Cooperate in the execution of a Change Order or such other approval of the change in the HUB Subcontracting Plans as the Contractor and Owner may agree to; d. Maintain and make available to Owner upon request business records documenting compliance with the accepted HUB Subcontracting Plan; e. Upon receipt of payment for performance of Work, the Contractor shall submit to Owner a compliance report, in the format required by Owner, that demonstrates Contractor’s performance of the HUB Subcontracting Plan; f. Promptly and accurately explain and provide supplemental information to Owner to assist in Owner’s investigation of Contractor’s good faith effort to fulfill the HUB Subcontracting Plan and the requirements under HUB Rule 20.14. 18.3

Failure to demonstrate Good Faith Effort

Upon a determination by Owner that Contractor has failed to demonstrate a good faith effort to fulfill the Subcontracting Plan or any Contract covenant detailed above, the Owner may, in addition to all other remedies available to it, report the failure to perform to the Comptroller of Public Accounts/Texas Procurement and Support Services Division Vendor Performance and Debarment Program. 18.4

Article XIX – Concealed Site Conditions 19.1

Generally

The Contractor is responsible for having visited the Site and having ascertained pertinent local conditions such as location, accessibility, and general character of the Site or building, the character and extent of existing Work within and adjacent to the Site, and any other Work being performed thereon at the time of the submission of its proposal. Any failure to do so will not relieve it from responsibility for successfully performing the Work without additional expense to the Owner. 19.2

Subsurface, Latent, or Concealed Conditions

If, in the performance of the Contract, subsurface, latent or concealed conditions at the Site are found to be materially different from the information included in the bid documents, or if unknown conditions of an unusual nature are discovered differing materially from the conditions usually inherent in Work of the character shown and specified, the Contractor shall notify the Architect/Engineer and the Owner in writing of such conditions before proceeding with the Work. If necessary, the Architect/Engineer and/or the Owner shall develop a solution and provide it to Contractor. If the solution prompts changes to the Contract Amount and/or Time, the Contract shall be adjusted under Article XX hereof. 19.3

Environmental Conditions

For environmental matters, see §9.4 19.4

Disclaimer

The Owner makes no representations as to the accuracy or completeness of the Site information furnished to the Contractor by Owner and does not expressly or implicitly warrant same and is not responsible for any interpretations or conclusions reached by the Contractor with respect thereto. It is Contractor’s sole responsibility to verify to its own satisfaction all Site information, including but not restricted to topographical data, borings, subsurface information, utilities and easements and to account for all reasonably anticipated costs in their proposal for construction.

The Construction Contingency Allowance (if specified in the Contract Documents) is controlled solely by the Owner and is in addition to any cost allowance provided for under the various sections. Expenditures from the Contingency Allowance must be made by Change Order issued by the ODR or the Architect/Engineer and approved by the Owner. Expenditures from the Construction Contingency Allowance do not alter the total Contract Price. Any unused portion of the Contingency Allowance will be deducted from the Final Payment. 20.3

Modifications for which a Change Order is Required

All changes in the scope of the Work, the Contract Sum and/or the Contract Time shall be documented by a Change Order. Change Orders are the exclusive method for modifying the Contract Sum or Contract Time. Neither the Architect/Engineer, nor the ODR or any other party may change the scope of the Work, the Contract Sum or the Contract Time by any method, expressed or implied, other than a Change Order. 20.3.1. Notice. Any direction, instruction, interpretation, or determination from the Architect/Engineer or Owner shall not be considered for a Change Order under this clause unless the Contractor gives the Owner written notice within 15 days requesting a change order and stating the date, circumstances, and source of the directive. 20.4

Agreed and Unilateral Change Orders

A Change Order may be either an Agreed Change Order or a Unilateral Change Order. 20.4.1. Agreed Change Orders. An Agreed Change Order is a Change Order jointly executed by the Owner and the Contractor, in which each agrees to all of the terms of the amendment. 20.4.2. Effect of An Agreed Change Order. The execution of an Agreed Change Order by the Owner and the Contractor constitutes the full, final and complete settlement of all claims with regard to the modifications contained in the Change Order, provided however, that an Agreed Change Order may be reformed by a written modification signed by the Contractor and the ODR, for the limited purpose of correcting an error in computation. 20.4.3. Unilateral Change Order (ULCO). A Unilateral Change Order is a Change Order issued by the Owner without the agreement of the Contractor. 20.4.4. Effect of a Unilateral Change Order; conversion to an Agreed Change Order. The issuance of a ULCO does not prejudice any of the Contractor’s rights to relief otherwise available under the Contract Documents. The Contractor may preserve such rights by submitting to the Owner and the Architect/Engineer a written objection to the ULCO setting forth in detail the reasons for its objections and the Contract provisions on which the objection is based within 30 days of receipt of the ULCO. If the Contractor does not submit a written objection within that time, Contractor shall be deemed to have accepted the terms of the ULCO and waived all claims related to the ULCO and the ULCO shall have the full force and effect of any Agreed Change Order. 20.5

Who May Request Change Orders

Change Order Requests may be initiated by the Owner or by the Contractor as provided in §§20.6 and 20.7.

20.6

Type I Change Orders

A Type I Change Order adjusts the Contract Sum and/or Contract Time because of an actual or constructive change in the scope or character of the Work, which originates from the Owner or Architect/Engineer. Type I Change Orders are initiated in one of two ways: 20.6.1. Owner-Initiated Changes. The Owner, without invalidating the Contract and without approval of the Surety, may order changes in the Work within the general scope of the Contract consisting of additions, deletions, or other revisions. 20.6.2. Contractor-Initiated Changes. If the Contractor claims that it will incur additional cost or time because of any writing containing a written interpretation of the Contract Documents, or instruction concerning the execution of the Work, issued by the Owner or the Architect/Engineer, and constituting a constructive change in the scope or character of the Work, the Contractor may request a Change Order pursuant to this Article and, if appropriate, a Time Extension Request as provided by Article XXIV. 20.6.3. Commencement of Work. The Contractor shall not commence Work on a Type I change Work prior to receipt of an approved –Change Order, or a Interim Change Authorization when and where appropriate, as set out in §§21.3.3 and 21.4, respectively. 20.7

Type II (Claim) Change Orders

A Type II Change Order adjusts the Contract Sum or Contract Time because of a change in the conditions of performance of the Work that changes the cost or time required for performance without changing the scope of the Work to be performed under the Contract Documents and which are not otherwise resolved as a Type I change. The Contractor may request a Type II Change Order under the following circumstances only: a. The occurrence of excusable delays as designated in §24.1.3; b. Reasonably-unanticipated and unknown physical conditions at the Site, pursuant to §19.2, which the Architect/Engineer addresses by means of changes in the Drawings and Specifications, or unanticipated conditions at the Site as described in §§2.8 and 9.4; c. The existence of material errors, omissions and imperfections in the design documents that the Architect/Engineer corrects by means of changes in the Drawings and Specifications; d. The failure of the Owner or the Architect/Engineer to take timely actions required under the Contract Documents or to provide information required by the Contractor to proceed with the Work; e. The failure of the Owner to provide reasonable access to the Site; and f. The failure of the Owner to timely provide materials which are to be furnished by the Owner under the Contract Documents. 20.8

Contractor’s Risk of Performance

Except as expressly provided in this Article XX, the Contractor shall not be entitled to an increase in the Contract Sum or the Contract Time and shall bear full responsibility for all risks affecting the Contractor’s cost of performance. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article XXI – Administration of Change Order Requests 21.1

Requests for Changes

21.1.1. Time Extension Requests. All relief related to excusable delays shall be governed by the provisions of Article XXIV, and any time extension granted be made pursuant to that Article. A single Change Order may be issued, adjusting both Contract Time and Contract Sum, where both arise from the same claim. 21.1.2.

Requests for Cost Adjustment. All requests for adjustment in the Contract Sum shall be made as follows:

21.1.2.1. Type I Change Orders. (a) Owner-Initiated Changes. When the Owner wished to order changes in the Work, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall submit to the Contractor a Change Order Request (COR), consisting of a description of the request, including such Drawings and Specifications as are reasonably necessary to inform the Contractor of the nature of the change. Within 30 days of receipt of the Owner’s COR, the Contractor shall submit a Change Order Proposal Evaluation (CPE) to the ODR and the Architect/Engineer, stating that the proposed change is a no-cost change, or proposing an adjustment in the Contract Sum, as provided under Article XXII. Following resolution of impact of cost and/or time for the change, the Architect/Engineer shall recommend acceptance of the CPE by completing the Architect’s Reason and Justification and the Owner shall execute a Change Order documenting the change in scope of the Work. The Owner may process formal Change Orders that accumulate several separate change actions. (b) Contractor-initiated Changes. When the Contractor considers that any written instruction or interpretation of the Contract Documents issued by the Owner or the Architect/Engineer constitutes a change in the Work affecting the Contract Sum, the Contractor shall so notify the Owner and Architect/Engineer in writing as soon as possible, but not later than 15 days after receipt of the instruction or interpretation, and shall submit a CPE to the ODR and Architect/Engineer as soon as possible thereafter, but not later than 30 days after issuance of the notice. The Contractor’s failure to meet either of these time requirements shall constitute waiver of any and all claims related to such instruction, interpretation, or notice. This CPE shall contain a proposal for an adjustment in the Contract Sum, as provided under Article XXII. The CPE shall be accompanied by a copy of the writing containing the instruction or interpretation, evidence of the date Contractor received the writing and an explanation of how the writing creates the need for a change under terms of the Contract. 21.1.2.2. Type II Change Orders. (a) Notice of Claim. If the Contractor claims that additional cost or time is involved because of the occurrence of one or more of the circumstances set forth in §20.7, the Contractor shall give the ODR and the Architect/Engineer written notice of its intent to submit a claim and shall proceed immediately to document all increased costs or time delays actually incurred as a result. Such notice shall be given as soon as the Contractor becomes aware that such circumstances exist, but not later than thirty (30) days after the onset of the circumstance giving rise to the claim. This notice shall identify the circumstances giving rise to the additional cost or time delay, the elements of cost affected, and the claimed contractual basis for entitlement to relief. The Contractor shall certify that the claim is made in good faith and that the supporting data is current, accurate, and complete to the best of its knowledge and belief, and that the amount requested accurately reflects the contract adjustment for which the Contractor believes the Owner is liable. Failure to certify a claim will result in a determination that no claim has been filed. Such notices shall be accompanied by sufficient written evidence to document the occurrence of a an estimated cost impact, but the full amount of the claim need not be stated at the time the initial claim notice is given to the ODR and the Architect/Engineer. This notice shall include the following additional elements: (1) an analysis of the relevant contract provisions; (2) with description of the facts; and (3) the statement of why the particular facts warrant compensation under the terms of the Contract. The Contractor and Owner recognize and agree that it is beneficial to each other to identify factors affecting the Contractor’s cost of performance, and to take prompt action to control them. Therefore, it is agreed that the Contractor shall not be entitled to request a Type II cost adjustment unless the required notice is submitted timely and the Contractor hereby waives all claims for which such notice is not given.

Updated February 4, 2014 Page 46

(b) Submission of Claim. Claims for adjustment of the Contract Sum for Type II Change Orders shall be made in the form of a CPE submitted to the ODR and Architect/Engineer no later than 30 days after the cessation of the circumstances giving rise to the claim. The CPE shall set forth the Contractor’s proposed cost adjustment, computed pursuant to Article XXII, together with the Contractor’s documentation of costs incurred. Within thirty (30) days after completion of the work in question, the Contractor shall submit in writing to the Owner and the Architect/Engineer the additional following elements of the claim: (4) supporting cost or pricing data; (5) legal analysis, if appropriate; (6) an expert’s opinion, if appropriate; (7) certification; and (8) a formal request for decision. No such claim shall be valid unless these additional elements are so submitted, and the Contractor hereby waives all such invalid claims. 21.1.2.3. Bar to Claims. No claim shall be allowed for an adjustment under this or any other provision of the Contract if asserted after the Owner makes or tenders final payment under this Contract. 21.2

Processing Requests for Change

21.2.1. Response to CPE. As soon as practical allowing for consultant review after receipt of any CPE submitted by the Contractor, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall respond either directly to the Contractor in writing or verbally at a project meeting the outcome of which is committed to the written record as to the Owner’s response being by either (1) accepting the Contractor’s proposal, (2) rejecting the same, (3) initiating negotiations with the Contractor concerning the proposed cost adjustment, or (4) requesting additional information. 21.2.2.

T HIS P ROVISION IS DELETED.

21.2.3. Change Authorization. When agreement has been reached concerning the adjustment of cost, the ODR shall accept the Contractor’s CPE, or any subsequently revised CPE issued pursuant to negotiation, by endorsing the CPE “Accepted”, with the date, and returning it to the Contractor. A CPE that has been accepted is a Change Authorization (CA). A CA is effective upon receipt and constitutes the Contractor’s notice to proceed with the changed Work, entitles the Contractor to prepare to submit the adjusted cost of the Work to be incorporated into the approved Schedule of Values on succeeding Pay Applications, as it is completed. The Owner reserves the right to forego this procedure in favor of issuing a formal Change Order in accordance with Section 21.2.5 herewith. 21.2.3.1 The Owner may, in writing, issue a notice to proceed for any portion of the Work in a Change Order for which final adjustment in Contract Sum and/or Contract Time has not been finalized. The Notice to Proceed letter may have a not-to-exceed cost amount for any or all portions of the Change Order. This amount is not to be exceeded without prior written approval by the Owner. 21.2.4.

T HIS P ROVISION IS DELETED.

21.2.5. Execution and Processing of Change Order. The Owner will undertake to issue Owner-Contractor agreed Change Order for signatures within 30 days of agreement, unless otherwise agreed to, provided the Contingency Allowance is not exceeded. In those cases where Change Order Work causes the Contingency Allowance to be exceeded, approval of higher authority may be necessary and, if such approvals are necessary, the Owner will have up to 90 additional days to issue such agreed Change Order. 21.2.5.1. The ODR will authorize the Architect/Engineer to prepare Side A Change Order Request to include specific change items for which time and cost impacts have been agreed, and will state whether the Change Order is to be funded by the Owner’s budget Contingency. 21.2.5.2. The Architect/Engineer shall affix seal and signatures on the COR and distribute directly to the Contractor. The Contractor shall complete Side B – Change Order Proposal Evaluation and submit to the ODR and Architect/Engineer with the required back up documentation within fifteen (15) days of receipt and return it directly to the Architect/Engineer for review. 21.2.5.3. After resolution of pricing, and upon receipt of a completed Side C Architect’s Reason and Justification from the Architect/Engineer the ODR will obtain signatures of Owner, normally within ten (10) days of receipt of Sides A, B and C and will make final distribution to all parties.

21.3

Unilateral Change Orders

21.3.1. For any Type I or Type II change, the ODR may issue a Unilateral Change Order (ULCO), establishing such adjustment of cost or time, if any, as the Owner deems fair and reasonable, under the following circumstances: 1. If the Contractor fails to submit a CPE within the time required under §§21.1.2.1 or 21.1.2.2 above. 2. If negotiations fail to achieve an agreed price. 3. If, in the Owner’s judgment based on the Progress Schedule, a failure to authorize the Contractor to proceed with a change in the Work may adversely affect the timely completion of the Work. 4. In addition to the above, the ODR shall issue a ULCO on any CPE that remains unresolved sixty (60) days after Substantial Completion of the Project unless otherwise agreed to by the parties or barred by tender of final payment. 21.3.2. A ULCO is effective on receipt by the Contractor. The ULCO obligates the Contractor to perform the Work according to its terms, and authorizes the Contractor to submit the adjusted cost of the Work as allowed in the ULCO on succeeding Pay Applications. 21.3.3. When a Unilateral Change Order has been issued, it will have the full force and effect of a contract modification. It will be included in schedules, payment estimates, reports, and all official records of the Contract. The issuance of a Unilateral Change Order will not prejudice any of the Contractor’s rights to make claims or to appeal disputed matters under other provisions of this Contract. 21.4

Interim Change Authorization

When the Owner determines than an Owner-initiated Type I change in the Work, or a written instruction or interpretation of the Contract Documents for which the Contractor has given notice of its intent to initiate a Type I claim or any other change implementation, must be made promptly in order to prevent damage to the Work in place, to prevent significant delay in the Project Schedule or to maintain safety or for any other reason as determined by the ODR, the ODR may issue an Interim Change Authorization (ICA) directing the Contractor to proceed with changed work before submitting or during the review of a CPE. The ICA shall authorize the Contractor to proceed with the Work on the basis of either (1) time and materials or (2) cost not to exceed a specified amount. Upon receipt of an ICA, the Contractor shall proceed immediately to document all increased costs actually incurred as a result of the Work required under the ICA. At any time prior to the completion of the changed Work, the Contractor may submit a CPE containing a lump sum proposal for the cost of the changed Work, which, if accepted, shall be administered as a Type I change; provided, however, that if the Work is completed prior to acceptance by the ODR of the Contractor’s CPE, the Contractor’s adjustment of the cost shall be limited to the actual cost of the Work. If the ODR or the Architect/Engineer determines that a Contractor-initiated Type I change is without merit, the ODR or the Architect/Engineer shall notify the Contractor to proceed according to the subject written interpretation or instruction. Such a notice to proceed shall have the same effect as a Unilateral Change Order pursuant to §20.4.4, and the Contractor’s rights shall be as set forth in §20.4.4. The Owner may issue ICA’s at its sole discretion for the Owner’s convenience. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article XXII – Pricing Change Order Work 22.1

Lump Sum Cost Proposals

All proposals for an adjustment in Contract Sum shall be made on a lump sum basis as outlined below, setting forth the Contractor’s estimated or actual costs attributable to the changed Work only. The proposed lump sum cost adjustment shall consist of a Base Cost, reflecting the Contractor’s actual or estimated cost of performing the changed Work, in the case of a Type I change, or the increased cost of performance in the case of a Type II change. The Base Cost of Type I changes may be marked up to cover the Contractor’s profit, general conditions costs, scheduling costs, bonding and insurance costs, and all other costs directly attributable to performance of the change Work. The markup also covers all impact costs on unchanged Work. These lump sum cost provisions also apply to Work performed by or claims submitted by Subcontractors as part of the Contractor’s CPE. 22.1.1 Base Cost Computation for Type I Changes. The Base Cost computation includes the following elements only, as relevant: a.

The total cost of materials and supplies, reflecting all available discounts, itemized by cost and quantity;

b. The total cost of all labor, including supervision up to the level of Project Superintendent, itemized to show manhours by trade and classification, burdened hourly rates, and total labor cost. Manhour totals for labor shall be based on the latest version of the “Means Facility Cost Data” as published by R. S. Means Company, or the Contractor’s actual or estimated hours, whichever is less. The Contractor shall provide the Owner (via the ODR) one copy of the current edition of the “Means Facility Cost Data” at no cost. The Owner’s copy shall be either a hard copy of the publication or an electronic CD version, at Owner’s option; c. The cost of additional supervision at and above the level of Project Superintendent, itemized by job function, manhours, and multiplied by the Contractor’s as-bid burdened unit cost for supervision as set out at Contractor’s Proposal; d. The reasonable equipment cost calculated for each type of equipment used in performing the changed Work, based on hours of use, and multiplied by the most recent version of the Rental Rate Blue Book for Construction Equipment (published by Primedia Information, Inc.) to yield total cost. Mobilization costs will not be allowed except when the Contractor demonstrates that the need to mobilize a piece of equipment arose solely because of the changed Work. The Contractor shall provide the Owner (via the ODR) one copy of the current edition of the “Rental Rate Blue Book for Construction Mobilization Costs” at no cost. The Owner’s copy shall be either a hard copy of the publication or an electronic CD version, at Owner’s option; e. All transportation costs for delivery and handling of materials, equipment and supplies, and the removal of waste or debris related solely and directly to the change Work; and f. Work.

All storage costs in excess of 30 days for materials and supplies, if necessitated solely by the changed

21.1.2. Markup on Type I Changes. The amounts a Contractor may add to the pricing of a change for profit and overhead are as follows: a. For Work Performed by it’s own employees. A Contractor (at any contractual level), performing work up to $10,000.00 may add up to 15%; for work between $10,000.01 and $20,000.00 a Contractor may add up to 10%; and for work greater than $20,000.00 a Contractor may add up to 7 ½ %, for any specific change. b. For Managing subcontracted Work. A Contractor (at any contractual level), managing subcontracted work up to $10.000.00 may add up to 10%; for work between $10,000.01 and $20,000.00 a Contractor may add up to 7 ½ %; and for work greater than $20,000.00 a Contractor may add up to 5 %, for any specific change. c. Only one percentage, referenced above, shall be used for the purpose of calculating the markup for a specific change amount. d. On changes involving both additions and deletions, the allowed markup will be allowed only on the net addition. Updated February 4, 2014 Page 49

e. The allowed markup shall cover all overhead expenses and profit, including all current management, supervision, drafting, cost estimating, material handling fees, as-built drawing preparation and submittal costs, apprenticeship program expenses, clean-up, warranty reserve, testing, small tools, insurance, bonds, and all bonuses, incentives, profit sharing or other rewards (both project and company wide). 21.1.3. Unit Prices. Unit prices bid by the Contractor, or subsequently agreed upon, shall include only those cost elements as those set out in §22.1.1, and shall be subject to markup pursuant to §22.1.2. 21.1.3.1. Each unit price bid by the Contractor shall include all costs applicable to the Work, including but not limited to mobilization, demobilization, labor, materials, equipment, supervision, delays, overhead at any level, and profit. 21.1.3.2. Either party may request an equitable adjustment. The equitable adjustment shall be based upon any increase or decrease in costs due solely to the variation above 115% or below 85% of the originally specified amount. If the quantity variation causes an increase in the time necessary for completion, the Owner, upon receipt of a written request for an extension of time within 30 days from the recognition of the variation or within such further period of time as may be granted by written agreement signed by the Owner, will ascertain the facts and make such adjustment for changing the completion date as in its judgment the findings justify. 22.2

Cost Computation for Type II Changes

22.2.1. Costs and Documentation. For a Type II change, the CPE shall include all information required by Section 21.2.2.2 including but not limited to a reasonably detailed narrative setting forth (1) the nature of the cost impact and its cause, (2) the contractual basis of the Contractor’s claim of entitlement to a cost adjustment, (3) description and documentation of steps taken by the Contractor to mitigate the claimed cost impact, and (4) such other information that is necessary to justify its claim. The Contractor hereby waives any such claim for which they cannot document steps taken to mitigate the claimed cost impact. The cost adjustment proposal for a Type II claim shall be based on itemized documented costs actually incurred. If and only if the actual cost claimed cannot be demonstrated with reasonable certainty, the Contractor may utilize mathematical formulas or models to compute the proposed cost adjustment, but no CPE will be valid unless accompanied by documentation showing that the increased costs claimed in fact resulted from the alleged cause and that the increased costs are compensable under terms of the Contract. 22.2.2. No Markup Authorized. No mark up is authorized on the Base Cost of a Type II claim for costs alleged by either the Contractor or its Subcontractors. 22.2.3. Certification. On CPEs for Type II changes, the Contractor shall certify in writing that all information contained in the CPE is true and correct, and that the costs claimed were incurred as a result of the alleged cause, and were reasonably necessary for the performance of the Work. In the case of Subcontractor pass-through claims, the Contractor shall further certify that the claim stated by the Subcontractor constitutes a legitimate claim against the Contractor, that it is not barred by the terms of the subcontract, and whether and to what extent the claim has been paid. The Contractor may not subsequently modify a claim that has been so certified except for the correction of errors. No Type II CPE shall be considered valid that is not certified and submitted within the time limits set forth in §21.1.2.2. 22.2.4. Cost Computations Under Interim Change Authorizations. Where the Owner issues an ICA authorizing the Contractor to proceed on a time and materials, or a cost not to exceed basis, the Contractor may submit the cost of the Work for payment, as authorized by the ICA, in succeeding Pay Applications once the Contractor has executed the Change Order that includes the particular change action. At any time after receipt of an ICA, the Contractor may submit a CPE proposing a lump sum cost for the change Work, which shall be processed as a Type I change under §22.1 above. The method of incorporating approved changes into the parameters of the accepted Schedule of Values must be coordinated and administered in a manner acceptable to the ODR.

Article XXIII – Time Allotted for Performance; Construction Schedules 23.1

Contract Time

The Contract Time will be measured from the date designated in the Notice to Proceed to the date specified for substantial completion by the Contract Documents, including any modification by Change Order. Failure to achieve Substantial Completion within the Contract Time or Final Completion within 30 days following Substantial Completion or as otherwise agreed to in writing will subject the Contractor to Liquidated Damages as provided in §24.3.1. 23.2

Work Progress Schedule

Within the period set forth in the Special Conditions and/or the Planning and Scheduling Specification Section of the Project Manual, the Contractor shall submit in duplicate to the Owner and the Architect/Engineer, for review and acceptance, a proposed Progress Schedule for the Work. The Progress Schedule shall show the dates for starting and completing the various component activities making up the Work, and the logical relationships between them, and shall be in a format and in sufficient detail to permit the Work to be competently managed and its progress monitored. Unless otherwise provided in the Special Conditions, the schedule should utilize the Critical Path Method. The Progress Schedule shall take account of the time required for the preparation and review of required Shop Drawings and submittals. The Contractor shall also submit a separate Submittal Schedule in accordance with §11.1.1, correlated with the Progress Schedule, which shows the dates the Contractor intends to make the required submittals. 23.2.1. Schedule Requirements. The Progress Schedule should be accurate and reliable representations of the progress of the Work to date, and of the Contractor’s actual plans for its completion. The Progress Schedules shall be capable of measuring and forecasting the effect of delaying events on completed and uncompleted activities. Submittal of a schedule, schedule revision or schedule update constitutes the Contractor’s representation to the Owner and Architect/Engineer that the Contractor will follow the schedule as submitted in performing all Work as yet not completed, and that all progress to date shown on the schedule is accurately depicted. 23.2.2. Schedule Updates. The Progress Schedule and Submittal Schedule shall be updated periodically, but no less than once a month, to reflect progress to date, and current plans for completing the Work. The form and contents of the updates, and the required update interval, shall be as specified in the Project Management and Coordination specification Section 01310 and/or the Special Conditions. The updated Progress Schedule shall be submitted to the Owner, and the Architect/Engineer for acceptance, and the Owner shall have no duty to make progress payments until the updated Progress Schedule has been timely submitted. The Contractor shall show the anticipated date of completion reflecting all extensions of time granted as of the date of the update. The Contractor may revise the Progress Schedule logic only with the Owner’s concurrence when in the Contractor’s judgment it becomes necessary for the management of the Work. The Contractor shall submit any schedule revision to Owner and Architect/Engineer for acceptance before it is implemented. 23.2.3. Effect of Schedule Submittal. Submittal of the Progress Schedule, and successive updates or revisions, is for the information of the Owner and Architect/Engineer, and to permit the coordination of their activities with those of the Contractor. Owner and AE shall accept or reject the submittal of a schedule within the same period allowed for review of other submittals. Acceptance of a schedule, schedule update, or revision constitutes the Owner’s agreement to coordinate their own activities with the Contractor’s activities as shown on the schedule. Acceptance of a Progress Schedule, update or revision does not indicate the approval of the Contractor’s proposed sequences and duration. Acceptance of a Progress Schedule update or revision indicating late completion does not constitute the Owner’s consent to a late finish, or waive either the Contractor’s responsibility for timely completion or the Owner’s right to damages for the Contractor’s failure to do so. The Contractor’s scheduled dates for completion do not constitute a change in terms of the Contract. The completion Date(s) can only be modified by Change Order. 23.2.4. Ownership of Float. Unless accepted otherwise by the Owner in writing, the Contractor shall develop its project execution plan to provide 10% total float at the project level, at submission of each Baseline Schedule, as specified. Float time contained in the Progress Schedule is not for the exclusive benefit of the Contractor or the Owner, but may be consumed by either as needed on a first-used basis. 23.2.5. Completion of Work. The Contractor will be held to account for the Work being completed in the time that is stated in the Contract, or any extension thereof.

Updated February 4, 2014 Page 51

23.2.5.1. If, in the judgment of the Owner, the Work is behind schedule and the rate of placement of Work is inadequate to regain scheduled progress so as to ensure timely completion of the entire Work or a separate portion thereof, the Contractor, when so informed by the Owner, shall immediately take action to increase the rate of work placement. This increase shall be accomplished by any one or a combination of the following or other suitable measures: 1. 2. 3. 4.

An increase in working forces. An increase in equipment or tools. An increase in hours of work or number of shifts and/or days including weekends and public holiday. Expedite delivery of materials.

23.2.5.2. The Contractor shall, within ten (10) days after being so informed, notify the Owner in writing of the specific measures taken and/or planned to increase the rate of progress together with an estimate as to when scheduled progress will be regained and an updated Work Progress Schedule illustrating the Contractor’s plan for achieving timely completion of the project. Should the plan of action be deemed inadequate by the Owner, the Contractor will take additional steps or make adjustments as necessary to its plan of action until it meets with the Owner’s approval. The increased rate of Work will continue until scheduled progress is regained. Scheduled progress will be established from the latest revised progress schedule for the job. Timely completion will be understood to be the Contract completion date as revised by all time extensions granted at the time acceleration is undertaken. The Contractor shall not be entitled to additional compensation for the additional effort it applies to the Work under the terms of this subparagraph. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

Article XXIV – Modification of the Contract Time 24.1

Delays of and Extension of Time

When a delay defined herein as excusable prevents the Contractor from completing the Work within the Contract Time, the Contractor shall be entitled to an extension of time, as set forth in §24.1.3. The Contract Time shall be extended by the number of calendar days lost by reason of excusable delay, as measured by the Contractor’s progress schedule (or current update). All extensions of time shall be given in calendar days. In no event, however, will an extension of time be granted for delays that merely extend the duration of non-critical activities, or which consume only float without delaying the project completion date. 24.1.1. Time Extension for Weather Days. A “Weather Day” is a day on which the Contractor’s current schedule indicates Work is to be done, on which inclement weather and related Site conditions prevented the Contractor from performing seven continuous hours of Work between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Weather days are excusable noncompensable delays. When weather conditions at the site prevent Work from proceeding, the Contractor shall immediately notify the ODR so conditions can be confirmed by the Owner. At the end of each calendar month, the Contractor shall submit to the Owner and Architect/Engineer a list of Weather Days occurring in that month. The Owner and Architect/Engineer shall meet with the Contractor to discuss and resolve any disagreements concerning the number of Weather Days that have directly impacted the Completion Date. Upon Owner and Contractor agreement, any time extension granted will be issued by Change Order. If the Contractor and Owner cannot agree on the amount of time extension, the Owner may issue a ULCO for fair and reasonable time extension. The requirements of §24.2 concerning requests for time extension shall not apply to requests for extensions of time for Weather Days, which are governed by this section alone. The Contractor’s sole relief for delay for Weather Days will be a time extension. 24.1.2. Non-Weather Excusable Noncompensable Delay. The Contractor shall be entitled only to an extension of time for unforeseeable delays not within the control of or arising from the fault of either the Contractor or the Owner caused by the following: a. Unusual delay in the delivery of materials, components, or equipment to be incorporated into the Work. Strikes and labor disputes (but not the availability of adequately skilled labor, unless such impact is caused solely by the conduct of the Owner); b. Physical damage to the Work caused by circumstances beyond the control of the Contractor; c. War, civil unrest or insurrection; d. Other unforeseeable causes beyond the control of either the Contractor or the Owner. 24.1.3. Excusable Delay. The Contractor shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment of cost and/or a time extension, issued via change order, for delays caused by the following: a. Failure of the Owner of the Architect/Engineer to take timely actions required under the Contract Documents, or to provide information required by the Contractor to proceed with the Work in a timely manner. b. Detrimental or obstructive actions of separate contractors employed by the Owner. c. Failure of the Owner to provide access to the Site of the Work. d. Failure of the Owner to provide materials that are to be furnished by the Owner under the Contract Documents, consistent with the Progress Schedule. e. Errors, omissions and imperfections in design that the Architect/Engineer corrects by means of changes in the drawings and specifications. f. Unanticipated physical conditions at the Site that the Architect/Engineer corrects by means of changes to the drawings and specifications. g. Changes in the Work ordered by the Owner or the Architect/Engineer. 24.1.3.1. No Damages for Delay. The Contractor shall have no claim for monetary compensation or damages for delay or hindrances to the Work from any cause including without limitation any act or omission of the Owner. The Contractor’s only claim for any such delay or hindrance shall be for an extension of time as provided in this Article XXIV. 24.1.4. Suspension of Work for Cause. The Owner may, at any time without prior notice, suspend all or any part of the Work, if, in the Owner’s sole discretion, it is considered reasonably necessary to do so to prevent or correct, any condition of the Work, which constitutes an immediate safety hazard, or which may reasonably be expected to impair the integrity, usefulness or longevity of the Work when completed. The Owner shall give the Contractor a written notice of Updated February 4, 2014 Page 53

suspension for cause, setting forth the reason for the suspension and identifying the Work to be suspended. Upon receipt after such notice, the Contractor shall immediately stop the Work so identified. As soon as practicable following the issuance of such a notice, the Owner, with assistance of the Architect/Engineer, shall initiate and complete an investigation of the circumstances giving rise to the suspension, and shall issue a written determination of their cause. The Contractor will not be entitled to an extension of time or compensation for delay resulting from a suspension if the Owner’s investigation determines that the cause was within the control of the Contractor. If the cause is determined not to have been within the control of the Contractor, and the suspensions prevents the Contractor from completing the Work within the Contract Time, the suspension is an Excusable Delay and a Time Extension shall be granted through a Change Order. Suspensions of Work under this provision shall be no longer than is reasonably necessary to identify and remedy the conditions giving rise to the suspension. 24.1.5. Suspension of Work for Owner’s Convenience. Upon seven days’ prior written notice to the Contractor, the Owner may at any time without breach of the Contract suspend all or any portion of the Work for a period of up to thirty days for its own convenience. The Owner shall give the Contractor a written notice of suspension for convenience, which shall set forth the number of days for which the Work, or any portion of it, will be suspended, and the date on which the suspension of Work shall cease. When such a suspension prevents the Contractor from completing the Work within the Contract Time, it is Excusable Delay. A notice of suspension for convenience may be modified by the Owner at any time on seven days’ prior written notice to the Contractor. If the Owner suspends the Work for its convenience for more than 60 consecutive days, the Contractor may elect to terminate the Contract pursuant to the provisions of Article XXV. 24.1.6. Concurrent Delay. When the completion of the Work is simultaneously delayed by an excusable delay and a delay arising from a cause not designated as excusable under the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall be entitled only to a time extension, and not to compensation, for the period of concurrent delay. When the completion of the Work is simultaneously delayed by an excusable delay and an excusable noncompensable delay, the Contractor shall be entitled to a time extension only, as provided under §24.1.3. 24.1.7. Except as expressly provided in this §24.1.2 and 24.1.3, the Contractor shall not be entitled to an extension of the Contract Time, and shall bear all responsibility for financial risks which may accrue from various causes of delay in the construction progress. 24.2

Time Extension Requests

If the Contractor believes that the completion of the Work has been delayed by a circumstance designated as excusable under §24.1.3, other than inclement weather, he shall give the Owner written notice, stating the nature of the delay and the activities potentially affected, within thirty (30) days after the onset of the event or circumstance giving rise to the excusable delay. Such claims should be accompanied by sufficient written evidence to document the delay. In the case of a continuing cause of delay, only one claim is necessary. Claims for extensions of time shall be stated in numbers of whole or half calendar days. All requests for extensions of time not submitted in connection with proposed costs for changed or added Work must be made in writing within thirty (30) days after the cessation of the delay. The Contractor and the Owner recognize and agree that it is beneficial to each to identify delays and make necessary schedule adjustments promptly, and that a Progress Schedule prepared and updated by the Contractor provides an effective tool for measuring and tracking the impact of delays. Therefore, it is agreed that no extension of time will be granted unless the required notice is submitted timely, the required Work Progress Schedule has been regularly updated and submitted as specified, and the notice includes sufficient documentation acceptable to the Owner and Architect/Engineer. All Changes to the Contract Time made as a result of such claims shall be by Change Order, as provided under Article XX. 24.2.1. No Release. No extension of time shall release the Contractor or the Surety furnishing a performance or payment bond from any obligations under the Contract or such a bond. Those obligations shall remain in full force until the discharge of the Contract. 24.2.2. Contents of Time Extension Requests. Each Time Extension Request shall be accompanied by a quantitative demonstration of the impact of the delay on the current Progress Schedule. Time Extension Requests shall include a reasonably detailed narrative setting forth (1) the nature of the delay and its cause, (2) the basis of the Contractor’s claim of entitlement to a time extension, (3) documentation of the actual impacts of the claimed delay on the Progress Schedule, and any concurrent delays, (4) description and documentation of steps taken by the Contractor to mitigate the effect of the claimed delay, including, when appropriate, the modification of the Progress Schedule, and (5) such other information that the Contractor and/or Owner and/or Architect/Engineer considers necessary to justify the claim for an extension of time. No time extensions shall be granted for delays that do not affect the Project Schedule. Updated February 4, 2014 Page 54

24.2.3. Owner’s Response. The Owner or the Architect/Engineer with the Owner’s concurrence shall respond to the Time Extension Request by providing to the Contractor written notice of the number of days granted, if any, and giving its reason if this number differs from the number of days requested by the Contractor. Such an extension of Time is effective on the date the Architect/Engineer or Owner’s notice is received by the Contractor, but a Change Order reflecting the Extension of Time shall be executed by the parties in accordance with Article XX. The Owner will respond to each properly submitted Time Extension Request within fifteen (15) days following its submittal; if the Owner and Architect/Engineer cannot reasonably make a determination about the Contractor’s entitlement to a time extension within that time, the Owner or Architect/Engineer shall so notify the Contractor in writing. Upon written agreement with the Contractor, the Owner shall then have not more than thirty (30) additional days to prepare a final response. 24.3

Failure to Complete Work Within the Contract Time

Time is of the essence of this Contract. The Contractor’s failure to substantially complete the Work within the Contract Time or to achieve final completion as required will cause damage to the Owner. These damages shall be liquidated by agreement of the Contractor and the Owner, as set forth in the Contract Documents. 24.3.1. Collection of Liquidated Damages. The Owner may collect Liquidated Damages due from the Contractor directly or indirectly by reducing the contract sum in the amount of Liquidated Damages in the RFP, Special Conditions, Section 27.2.3 herein, and the Contract.

Article XXV – Termination and Suspension of the Contract Prior to Completion 25.1

Termination by Owner for Cause

The Owner may, without prejudice to any right or remedy terminate the employment of the Contractor and take possession of the Site and of all materials, equipment, tools, construction equipment and machinery thereon owned by the Contractor, under the following circumstances: a. Persistent or repeated failure or refusal, except during complete or partial suspensions of Work authorized under the Contract Documents, to supply enough properly skilled workmen or proper materials; b. Persistent disregard of laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, or orders of any public authority having jurisdiction; c. Persistent failure to prosecute the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents, and to insure its completion within the time, or any extension thereof, specified in the Contract; d. Failure to remedy defective Work condemned by the ODR pursuant to Article XII; e. Failure to pay subcontractors, laborers, materialmen and suppliers pursuant to Texas Government Code Chapter 2251; f. Persistent endangerment, by the Contractor or its Subcontractors or other vendors, of the safety of labor or of the Work itself; g. Failure to supply or maintain statutory bonds, pursuant to Article V, or the supply or maintain required insurance, pursuant to Article VI; h. Any other material breach of the Contract; or i. The Contractor becomes insolvent, files for bankruptcy protection, makes a general assignment of its rights and obligations for the benefit of creditors or is, in the Owner’s estimation, otherwise financially incapable of performing the Work. The Owner reserves the right to terminate at any time for any of the above listed causes. Failure to exercise the right to terminate in any instance or for any proper reason shall not be construed as waiver of the right to do so in any other instance or for any other proper reason. 25.1.1. The ODR shall give the Contractor and its Surety thirty days’ prior written notice of its intent to terminate for any of the above reasons. If the Contractor or the Surety demonstrates, to the satisfaction of the Owner, that the condition or conditions upon which the notice of termination is based have been removed, corrected, or will not recur, then the Owner shall rescind the notice and the Contract shall continue unmodified, and the Contractor shall not be entitled an extension of time. 25.1.2. Should the Contractor or the surety fail to so demonstrate within thirty days following receipt of such notice, or fail to satisfy the Owner that the condition or conditions upon which the notice of termination is based have been removed, corrected, or will not recur, the Owner may arrange for completion of the Work and deduct the cost thereof from the unpaid Contract sum remaining, including the cost of additional Architect/Engineer services and of Owner contract administrative costs made necessary by such default or neglect, in which event no further payment shall then be made by the Owner until all costs of completing the Work have been paid. If the unpaid balance of the Contract Sum exceeds the costs of finishing the Work, including compensation for the Architect/Engineer’s additional services made necessary thereby, such excess shall be paid to the Contractor. If such costs exceed the unpaid balance, the Contractor or his surety shall pay the difference to the Owner. This obligation for payment shall survive the termination of the Contract. The Owner reserves the right, where the Contract is terminated for cause, to take assignment of any and all contracts between the Contractor and its Subcontractors, vendors and suppliers, and the ODR shall promptly notify the Contractor of the contracts the Owner elects to assume. Upon receipt of such notice, the Contractor shall promptly take all steps necessary to effect such assignment. 25.2

Termination for Convenience of Owner

The Owner reserves the right, without breach, to terminate the Contract prior to, or during the performance of the Work, for any reason. Upon such an occurrence, the following procedures will be adhered to: a. The Owner will immediately notify the Architect/Engineer and the Contractor in writing, specifying the reason for and the effective date of contract termination. Such notice shall also contain any instructions necessary for the protection, storage or decommissioning of incomplete work or systems, and for safety.

Updated February 4, 2014 Page 56

b. After receipt of the notice of termination, the Contractor shall immediately proceed with the following obligations, regardless of any delay in determining or adjusting any amounts due at that point in the Contract. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Stop all work. Place no further subcontracts or orders for materials or services. Terminate all subcontracts. Cancel all materials and equipment orders as applicable. Take action that is necessary to protect and preserve all property related to this Contract that is in the possession of the Contractor.

c. When the Contract is terminated for the Owner’s convenience, the Contractor may recover from the Owner payment for all Work executed, including any additional work required pursuant to the notice of termination, and for any provable loss and reasonable expenses attributable to the Work resulting from such termination. 25.3

Termination by Contractor

If the Work is stopped for a period of ninety (90) days under an order of any court or other public authority having jurisdiction, or as a result of an act of government, such as a declaration of a national emergency making materials unavailable, through no act or fault of the Contractor or a Subcontractor or their agents or employees or any other persons performing any of the Work under a contract with the Contractor, then the Contractor may, upon thirty (30) additional days’ written notice to the ODR, terminate the loss and reasonable expenses attributable to the Work resulting from such termination. If the cause of the work stoppage is removed prior to the end of the thirty (30) day notice period, the Contractor may not terminate the Contract. 25.4

Settlement on Termination

When the Contract is terminated for any reason, the Contractor shall, at any time prior to 180 days of the effective date of termination, submit a final termination settlement proposal to the Owner based upon recoverable costs as provided under §§25.1, 25.2 or 25.3. If the Contractor fails to submit the proposal within the time allowed, the Owner may determine the amount due to the Contractor because of the termination and shall pay the determined amount to the Contractor. All settlements on termination shall be administered as Type II Change Orders as provided under Article XX, XXI and XXII. The Contractor waives claims against Owner for consequential damages arising out of or relating to this Contract. This waiver includes damages incurred by the Contractor for principal office expenses including the compensation of personnel stationed there, for losses of financing, business and reputation, and for loss of profit except anticipated profit arising directly from the Work. 25.5

Force Majeure

Except with respect to the obligation of payments under this Contract, if either of the parties, after a good faith effort, is prevented from complying with any express or implied covenant of this Contract by reason of war; terrorism; rebellion; riots; strikes; acts of God; any valid order, rule, or regulation of governmental authority; or similar events that are beyond the control of the affected party (collectively referred to as a “Force Majeure”), then, while so prevented, the affected party’s obligation to comply with such covenant shall be suspended, and the affected party shall not be liable for damages for failure to comply with such covenant. In any such event, the party claiming Force Majeure shall promptly notify the other party of the Force Majeure event in writing and, if possible, such notice shall set forth the extent and duration thereof. The party claiming Force Majeure shall exercise due diligence to prevent, eliminate, or overcome such Force Majeure event where it is possible to do so and shall resume performance at the earliest possible date. However, if non-performance continues for more than thirty (30) days, the GLO may terminate this Contract immediately upon written notification to Contractor.

Article XXVI – Dispute Resolution 26.1

Generally

Except as provided in Chapter 114 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, the dispute resolution process provided for in Chapter 2260 of the Texas Government Code shall be used, as further described herein, by the Owner and the Contractor to attempt to resolve any claim for breach of contract made by the Contractor that is not resolved in the procedures described in §26.4: a) A Contractor’s claim for breach of this Contract that the parties cannot resolve in the ordinary course of business shall be submitted to the negotiation process provided in Chapter 2260, Subchapter B, of the Texas Government Code. To initiate the process, the Contractor shall submit written notice, as required by Subchapter B, to the ODR. Said notice shall specifically state that the provisions of Chapter 2260, Subchapter B are being invoked. A copy of the notice shall also be given to all other representatives of Owner and the Contractor otherwise entitled to notice under the parties’ Contract. Compliance by the Contractor with Subchapter B is a condition precedent to the filing of a contested case proceeding under Chapter 2260, Subchapter C, of the Texas Government Code. b) The contested case process provided in Chapter 2260, Subchapter C, of the Government Code is the Contractor’s sole and exclusive process for seeking a remedy for any and all alleged breaches of contract by the Owner if the parties are unable to resolve their disputes under subparagraph (a) of the article. c) Compliance with the contested case process provided in Subchapter C is a condition precedent to seeking consent to sue from the Legislature under Chapter 107 of the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code. Neither the execution of the Contract by the Owner nor any other conduct of any representative of the Owner relating to the Contract shall be considered a waiver of sovereign immunity to suit. 26.2

Procedure

Except as provided in Chapter 114 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, the submission, processing and resolution of the Contractor’s claim is governed by the published rules adopted by the Owner pursuant to Chapter 2260, as currently effective, hereafter enacted or subsequently amended. 26.3

Continuing Performance

Neither the occurrence of an event nor the pendency of a claim constitutes grounds for the suspension of performance by the Contractor, in whole or in part. 26.4

Administrative Remedy

Before submitting any matter not resolved in the ordinary course of business to the dispute resolution process described in §26.1, the Contractor shall make a written request to the ODR for a determination of the matter in dispute. The written request shall clearly state the disputed issue and include or incorporate by specific reference all information or documents that the Contractor wants the ODR to consider in reaching his determination. The ODR shall issue a written notice of decision on the request, which shall be final and conclusive, unless appealed in writing to the Deputy Commissioner for the program area, within 30 days of the notice. The notice of appeal shall particularly state the factual and legal basis for the Contractor’s objections to the ODR’s decision. The Deputy Commissioner will review the decision of the ODR based on the written notice of appeal and the written record that was the basis of the ODR’s decision and issue a written notice of decision on appeal. The Deputy Commissioner’s written notice of decision on appeal shall be final and conclusive on all matters except for claims of breach of contract which are then subject to the dispute resolution process described in §26.1. 26.5

Non-Waiver

Nothing herein shall hinder, prevent or be construed as a waiver of Owner’s right to seek redress on any disputed matter in a court of competent jurisdiction. REMAINDER OF THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

The body of each wage determination lists the classification and wage rates that have been found to be prevailing for the cited type(s) of construction in the area covered by the wage determination. The classifications are listed in alphabetical order of "identifiers" that indicate whether the particular rate is a union rate (current union negotiated rate for local), a survey rate (weighted average rate) or a union average rate (weighted union average rate). Union Rate Identifiers A four letter classification abbreviation identifier enclosed in dotted lines beginning with characters other than "SU" or "UAVG" denotes that the union classification and rate were prevailing for that classification in the survey. Example: PLUM0198-005 07/01/2014. PLUM is an abbreviation identifier of the union which prevailed in the survey for this classification, which in this example would be Plumbers. 0198 indicates the local union number or district council number where applicable, i.e., Plumbers Local 0198. The next number, 005 in the example, is an internal number used in processing the wage determination. 07/01/2014 is the effective date of the most current negotiated rate, which in this example is July 1, 2014. Union prevailing wage rates are updated to reflect all rate changes in the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) governing this classification and rate. Survey Rate Identifiers Classifications listed under the "SU" identifier indicate that no one rate prevailed for this classification in the survey and the published rate is derived by computing a weighted average rate based on all the rates reported in the survey for that classification. As this weighted average rate includes all rates reported in the survey, it may include both union and nonunion rates. Example: SULA2012-007 5/13/2014. SU indicates the rates are survey rates based on a weighted average calculation of rates and are not majority rates. LA indicates the State of Louisiana. 2012 is the year of survey on which these classifications and rates are based. The next number, 007 in the example, is an internal number used in producing the wage determination. 5/13/2014 indicates the survey completion date for the classifications and rates under that identifier. Survey wage rates are not updated and remain in effect until a new survey is conducted. Union Average Rate Identifiers Classification(s) listed under the UAVG identifier indicate that no single majority rate prevailed for those classifications; however, 100% of the data reported for the classifications was union data. EXAMPLE: UAVG-OH-0010 08/29/2014. UAVG indicates that the rate is a weighted union average rate. OH indicates the state. The next number, 0010 in the example, is an internal number used in producing the wage determination. 08/29/2014 indicates the survey completion date for the classifications and rates under that identifier. A UAVG rate will be updated once a year, usually in January of each year, to reflect a weighted average of the current negotiated/CBA rate of the union locals from which the rate is based. ----------------------------------------------------------------

Example: PLUM0198-005 07/01/2014. PLUM is an abbreviation identifier of the union which prevailed in the survey for this classification, which in this example would be Plumbers. 0198 indicates the local union number or district council number where applicable, i.e., Plumbers Local 0198. The next number, 005 in the example, is an internal number used in processing the wage determination. 07/01/2014 is the effective date of the most current negotiated rate, which in this example is July 1, 2014. Union prevailing wage rates are updated to reflect all rate changes in the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) governing this classification and rate. Survey Rate Identifiers Classifications listed under the "SU" identifier indicate that no one rate prevailed for this classification in the survey and the published rate is derived by computing a weighted average rate based on all the rates reported in the survey for that classification. As this weighted average rate includes all rates reported in the survey, it may include both union and nonunion rates. Example: SULA2012-007 5/13/2014. SU indicates the rates are survey rates based on a weighted average calculation of rates and are not majority rates. LA indicates the State of Louisiana. 2012 is the year of survey on which these classifications and rates are based. The next number, 007 in the example, is an internal number used in producing the wage determination. 5/13/2014 indicates the survey completion date for the classifications and rates under that identifier. Survey wage rates are not updated and remain in effect until a new survey is conducted. Union Average Rate Identifiers Classification(s) listed under the UAVG identifier indicate that no single majority rate prevailed for those classifications; however, 100% of the data

reported for the classifications was union data. EXAMPLE: UAVG-OH-0010 08/29/2014. UAVG indicates that the rate is a weighted union average rate. OH indicates the state. The next number, 0010 in the example, is an internal number used in producing the wage determination. 08/29/2014 indicates the survey completion date for the classifications and rates under that identifier. A UAVG rate will be updated once a year, usually in January of each year, to reflect a weighted average of the current negotiated/CBA rate of the union locals from which the rate is based.

---------------------------------------------------------------WAGE DETERMINATION APPEALS PROCESS 1.) Has there been an initial decision in the matter? This can be: * * * *

an existing published wage determination a survey underlying a wage determination a Wage and Hour Division letter setting forth a position on a wage determination matter a conformance (additional classification and rate) ruling

On survey related matters, initial contact, including of surveys, should be with the Wage and Hour Regional which the survey was conducted because those Regional responsibility for the Davis-Bacon survey program. If initial contact is not satisfactory, then the process 3.) should be followed.

Write to: Branch of Construction Wage Determinations Wage and Hour Division U.S. Department of Labor 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20210 2.)

Write to: Wage and Hour Administrator U.S. Department of Labor 200 Constitution Avenue, N.W. Washington, DC 20210 The request should be accompanied by a full statement of the interested party's position and by any information (wage payment data, project description, area practice material, etc.) that the requestor considers relevant to the issue.

SITE PHYSICAL DATA Information furnished below is for the Contractor’s review. However, it is expressly understood that the Owner and Engineer are not responsible for any interpretation or conclusion drawn by the Contractor. The Owner and Engineer also are not responsible for any lack of information herein pertaining to physical conditions at the site. The Contractor shall make every effort possible to familiarize himself with and research the conditions to be expected at the site. A. Tidal Conditions: Under ordinary conditions, the tidal range is about 0.6 ft. However, the tide elevation is largely dependent on the speed, direction, and duration of the wind. Strong winds may raise or lower the water surface by as much as, and in some instances more than, 2.5 ft. B. Marine Conditions and Currents: In addition to tidal fluctuations and current velocities mentioned herein, the water at the project site may at times be rough. The site is also subjected to significant drawdown and surge of the water level as well as strong currents from vessels in the nearby highly utilized ship channel. Again, the contractor should familiarize himself with the daily and extreme conditions that might be expected throughout the duration of this project. Impact and rework of partially completed work components (i.e. excavations, filled areas, etc.) shall not be just cause for increased compensation. C. Groundwater: Subsurface groundwater conditions and elevations may change. Changes in groundwater elevations shall not be just cause for increased compensation. D. Surface Debris: Areas of Work may be cluttered with debris, trash, etc. washed ashore. Prior to commencement of the Work, Contractor shall remove debris from the footprint of all Work areas. Debris shall not be covered up, buried, pushed into adjacent areas, or incorporated into the earthwork of the project. Debris shall be hauled away from the project site and disposed of 01000-Page 4 of 6

in accordance with applicable federal, state, and municipal laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances. 1.14

PROTECTION OF SITE A. The Contractor is notified that construction will occur adjacent to active public recreational facilities, private property, and environmentally sensitive areas. The Contractor is hereby notified that adverse Working conditions may exist, and the necessary allowances and precautions shall be made to avoid damaging public and private property and sensitive vegetation. Unauthorized damage to any existing utilities, building facilities, structures, or plant life shall be repaired by the Contractor at no expense to the Owner. B. Utility locations have not been field verified. Pipelines and/or other existing underground installations and structures in the vicinity of the Work may be present. The Contractor shall make every effort to locate all underground obstacles and/or pipelines by prospecting in advance of all trench excavation. Any damage to pipelines, including any resulting environmental contamination, caused by the construction activities shall be repaired/cleaned-up by the Contractor. Any delay or extra cost to the Contractor shall not constitute a claim for extra Work, additional payment, or damages. C. The Contractor shall protect all vegetation adjacent to and within the construction site. If Contractor's Work will require removal of vegetation, the Contractor shall obtain approval of Owner prior to removal. The Contractor shall be held liable for removal of vegetation without Owner's prior approval. D. The plans show the locations of all known surface structures pertinent to the Work. The locations of surface and subsurface features shown on the plans are not exact. In the case of underground or underwater obstructions such as existing water, sewer, storm sewer, gas, electrical lines, piling, debris, or partial structures that are not shown on the plans, their location is not guaranteed. The Owner assumes no responsibility for failure to show any or all these structures on the plans or to show them in their exact location. Failure to show will not be considered sufficient basis for claims for additional compensation for extra Work in any manner whatsoever, unless the obstruction encountered is such as to necessitate substantial changes in the lines or grades, or requires the building of special Work for which no provision is made. Minor changes and variations of the Work specified and shown on the plans shall be expected by the Contractor and allowed for as incidental to the satisfactory completion of a whole and functioning Work or improvement.

1.15

MISPLACED MATERIAL Should the Contractor, during the progress of the construction, lose, dump, throw overboard, sink, or misplace any material, plant, machinery or appliance outside of the project template/work area, which in the opinion of the Engineer may be dangerous and/or obstruct navigation, the Contractor shall recover and remove the same with the utmost dispatch. The Contractor shall give immediate notice, with description and location of such obstructions, until the same are removed. Should the Contractor refuse, neglect or delay compliance with the above requirements, such obstructions may be removed by the Owner, and the cost of such removal may be deducted from any money due or to become due to the Contractor, or may be recovered under his bond. The liability of the Contractor for the removal of a vessel wrecked or sunk without fault or negligence shall be limited to that provided in Sections 15, 19, and 20 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of March 3, 1899 (33 U.S.C 410 et seq).
