Construction Prologue

The Consultant has been guided through the design phases of its project by the State University Construction Fund's three objectives ­ achieving quality architecture, on schedule and within budget limitations. The product of these efforts will be lost unless it continues to pursue these objectives during the construction of the project. Final achievement of these objectives depends not only on the Consultant's proper involvement during design but on its continued and proper involvement during construction. This document does not supersede any provisions of the Contract In achieving these objectives during design, the Fund has emphasized the Consultant's responsibility for project development and management. Therefore, it is imperative that the responsibility for the management of projects under construction rests with the Consultant. This manual is devoted to the design and construction phase procedures and requirements necessary to achieve the Fund's objectives during construction and to assist the Consultant in assuming its full responsibilities1. It is understood the purpose of this manual is to provide guidance in these procedures and does not supersede any provisions of the contracts. The Consultant is required to provide proper staffing capacity and resources for taking projects through design phases. It is equally important to properly organize and staff a project during construction. The Fund expects the Consultant to provide complete services during the construction phase with frequent inspections of the work at the job site by its office personnel and those of its Consultants. In addition, the Fund requires that the Consultant maintain, at the site, a field staff sufficient to provide for the daily administration of construction. Planning and organizing for the staffing of this field office should begin well before the project is put on the construction market. The number and composition of the field staff should be planned in consideration of the type and complexity of the construction project and with the aim of organizing the staff to meet the Fund's major objectives. ACTIVITIES PRIOR TO BIDDING: During the construction document phase, the Consultant is to develop a plan of organization for its field staff and submit the proposed plan to the Fund Assistant General Manager, Office of Construction Management, for approval. After approval of the plan, the Consultant and its Consultants shall conduct interviews to fill the authorized positions after bid. The nominations (with the proposed salaries and a resume of the candidates' experience) are to be sent to the Assistant General Manager, Office of Construction Management. Final interviews will be arranged and, upon consent of the Fund, a salary and starting date for employment will be established. THE BIDDING PERIOD: The most important role the Consultant plays during the bidding period is in attracting and interesting qualified Contractors to participate in the bidding for construction of SUCF projects. To best attract and interest qualified Contractors in Fund projects, the Consultant may have to begin these activities prior to putting a project on the market. This may require the Consultant to make an inventory of Contractors who have bid or

might be expected to bid on projects in its area and to seek out those Contractors to determine their willingness to bid on the project or to attempt to stimulate such interest. An assessment of Contractor interest is important for developing a final cost estimate for the project. During the bidding period, the Consultant shall report weekly, in writing, to the Fund's Design Project Coordinator2 the names, addresses and roles of all those requesting plans and specifications. In addition, the report should indicate its appraisal of the sincerity of potential bidders. It should describe the activity that it is engaging in to attempt to interest additional Contractors or subcontractors in bidding the project. The Consultant must also submit a final report, three days prior to the bid opening, which then currently identifies likely bidders. ADDENDA AND AMENDMENTS TO FUND DOCUMENTS: No addenda, revisions, deletions or additions will be made by the Consultant to the Fund's standard documents without prior approval by the Fund. All addenda issued by the Consultant during the bid period are to be approved by the Fund prior to being issued, and only in extreme cases will an addendum be issued during the last week of the bidding period. AFTER BID OPENING: With the opening of bids, responsibility for monitoring the bid project continues within the Design Section of the Office of Design. The Consultant's primary point of contact in the Fund remains the designated Design Project Coordinator. The Fund's Project Coordinator assignment, from design to construction, will be changed effective with award of the construction contract. BID ANALYSIS MEETING: After the bid opening there may be a Bid Analysis Meeting at the Fund offices with representatives of the Design Section of the Office of Design and Construction Management for the purpose of analyzing bids. This meeting must be attended by the Consultant and its principal Consultants. The Consultant chairs the meeting and must prepare minutes for distribution to the participants. The Consultant, Design Project Coordinator and Regional Director of Design are provided with one copy of all bid proposals for use in analyzing bids. There is a Post-Bid Checklist specimen included in the Appendix, which is to be followed. At the end of this meeting, the original copies of all bids must be deposited with the Fund for inclusion in the permanent record. Immediately after the three lowest bids have been identified, the Fund will notify these bidders via email, requesting each bidder name its principal subcontractors and provide all other qualifying data within the 48-hour time limit specified in Information for Bidders, Section 8, "Submission of Post-Bid Information". This may be an update of previously filed data in the case of Contractors who previously submitted this material. The request also emphasizes that submission must be prepared in duplicate, one copy to be submitted directly to the Consultant's main office and one copy directly to the Fund Assistant General Manager, Office of Construction Management. The necessary documents must be received no later than 2:00 P.M. of the second business day following opening of bids. PRE-AWARD MEETING: As soon as possible after the qualifying data has been reviewed, a Pre-Award Meeting may be scheduled and convened by the Consultant with the concurrence

Fund Project Coordinator will be designated for each project.

of the Fund. The purpose of the Pre- Award Meeting is to assess the capacity of the low-bid Contractor to perform the necessary work. The assessment considers the character and scope of the Contractor's past performance, financial capacity, availability of personnel, equipment, and the capability of the nominated subcontractors. In some instances it may be desirable to review the qualifications of Contractors other than the lowest bidder at this meeting to provide the Consultant with information necessary to permit a viable recommendation for the award of the Contract. Prior to this meeting the Consultant must review the experience and qualifications of the low bidder and its designated subcontractors with other Consultants, Contractors, and the Owner for whom they have previously performed work. Usually, the Pre-Award Meeting is held at the Fund office. The Consultant chairs the meeting and prepares the minutes. Attendees at this meeting should include the Consultant and its Principal Consultants, the low-bidding Contractor with, if special project conditions warrant, its proposed Principal Subcontractors and Fund representatives. On the basis of the qualifying data and any other information received and discussed at the Pre-Award Meeting, the Consultant will submit to the Design Regional Director, in writing, its recommendation on the award of a Contract. CONTRACT AWARD: The Bidding Period ends with an affirmative decision by the Fund regarding the award of the Contract. The successful low bidder will be sent a "Notice of Award" letter which serves as the Funds' formal letter of intent. Concurrently, the Fund's legal office will assemble the complete formal Contract for execution by the Contractor, and the Fund. The Contract will be forwarded to the Contractor for execution under cover of a separate Fund letter, as described in the next section of this manual titled "Construction Contracts". It is important that Contractors, Consultants and other involved parties recognize no payments may be made under the authority of the Notice of Award letter. Full execution of the Contract is required prior to physical work commencing on the site. Issue of the "Notice of Award" letter also marks, internal to the Fund, the transition of project coordination responsibility from the Design Section to the Construction Management Section. A construction phase Project Coordinator will be assigned who will monitor formal Contract execution status and, when nearly complete, contact the Consultant and Contractor to schedule a Pre-construction Orientation Meeting. BUILDING PERMITS: Building Permits will be issued by the Design Section of the Office of Pre-Construction Services. Prior to construction, the Fund will mail to the Contractor the building permit for the project or, if applicable, a waiver of the building permit. This document must be posted conspicuously on the construction site for the duration of the project.

Construction Contracts

CONTRACT DOCUMENTS: The Construction Contract is the agreement between the Fund and the Contractor for the construction of the Project. By the Bid Opening, the Project Consultant must have delivered to the Fund Assistant General Manager, Office of Construction Management six (5), unbound copies of the following documents: A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H. I. J. K. Covers and Cover Sheet Table of Contents Notice to Bidders Information for Bidders Agreement List of allowances included in bidding documents List of unit prices included in bidding documents (prices are to be left blank) Performance Bond Labor and Material Bond Division I of the Technical Specifications All Addenda

After the project is awarded, the Fund's legal office prepares the Contract (Agreement) and forwards the documents to the Contractor for execution. A copy of a letter of transmittal containing instruction for Contract execution is included as Item 2 of the Appendix. After the Contractor signs the Contract (Agreement) and returns to the Fund, the Fund will then sign and return one original Contract back to the contractor. When the Contractor receives the completed Contract, the Fund will issue the Notice to Proceed letter. The Contract start date is at receipt of the Notice to Proceed letter. REFERENCE TABLES: Table 1 is a Contract checklist indicating the items that must be completed in all Fund construction Contracts.

The Consultant shall furnish general administration for each construction Contract awarded for the project until final completion and acceptance by the Fund for construction of the project, including services throughout the guarantee period. Pre-Construction Orientation Meeting: The Orientation Meeting is held to review the purpose, goals, organization and Contract requirements as related to the project. The meeting affords an opportunity for those individuals who will be working together to become familiar with each other, clarifying the responsibilities of each party. The meeting will be chaired by the Consultant and is usually held at the project site. Attendees will include Fund personnel, Consultant's representative, General Contractor (designed mechanical, electrical, and other proposed principal subcontractors as required), and a representative of the University/College if applicable. A representative of the Federal Government (or any other relevant potential sponsor) may be present if a Federal project is included. The purpose of the meeting will be to review: · · The administrative aspects of the construction phase. An overview of the project, drawing attention to any particular aspect or special condition associated with the project, along with a generic discussion of the Contractors proposed overall construction schedule. Special attention is to be given to contractual phasing requirements.

This meeting is also for the implementation of solutions to the coordination of issues related to maintenance and control of pedestrian and vehicular traffic, construction fencing (long and short duration), safety, Contractor's control to the site, parking, temporary utilities, etc. Correspondence, Reports Construction Phase Submittals COMMUNICATION BETWEEEN FUND, CONSULTANTS, AND CONTRACTOR: The Consultant and the Contractor will communicate directly with each other unless directed otherwise. Copies of all correspondence are to be issued to the Fund Project Coordinator on all matters. The Consultant, as the Fund's Representative, will provide determinations of the content/intent of the technical plans and specifications. The Consultant has the sole responsibility for receiving and acting upon all technical submittals of all types, including samples, shop drawings, catalog cuts, brochures, test data, etc. For interpretation affecting Contract cost and/or material substitution, prior concurrence of the interpretation must be obtained from the Fund. It is the Consultant's responsibility to monitor the Contractor's scheduling of submissions.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 11 Payments and Reimbursements

There are particular items for which the Consultant should instruct the Contractor to submit, simultaneously to the Fund Project Coordinator at the time the originals are sent to the Consultant: These items are as follows: 1. PROJECT SCHEDULE: An initial project schedule in the form of a suitable chart, diagram or bar graph is required to be submitted for approval within 15 days after receipt of Notice to Proceed, showing sufficient detailed information to reflect the first 90 days of Contract activity. Since the Fund strives to hold the initial project orientation meeting as soon as possible after award, the 90-day schedule should be available for review at this meeting. Within 60 days after receipt of Notice to Proceed, the Contractor shall submit a Working Plan Schedule, which shall be a critical path method schedule. The Contractor's provided schedule is reviewed for constructability and conformity to the Contract requirements. Therefore, if the Contractor chooses to accelerate the project's completion date from the contractual completion date, the Fund realizes that it is everyone's benefit to progress a project schedule as efficient and timely as the Contractor deems appropriate. It should be noted that the Contractor's schedule does not change the contractual completion date. The project schedule is to be reviewed by the Consultant and forwarded to the Fund with comments. The Fund will respond to the Consultant with the Fund's review prior to responding to the Contractor. The Project schedule is not to be approved, only returned to the Contractor with comments. The project schedule must indicate the Contract completion date. Both of these items must be submitted and reviewed before the Contractor may receive its initial payment and that said date should be shown on the project schedule, along with any early targeted completion date. 2. CONTRACT BREAKDOWN (Fund Form CF-C2): Prior to submitting an initial payment, the Contractor must obtain an approved Contract breakdown (Schedule of Values) for the purpose of tracking Contract completion and payment. The breakdown shall provide sufficient detail on one page, as required by both the Consultant and the Fund, to have a full understanding of Contract progress. If the scope and size of the project does not allow enough detail to be provided on the CF-C2 (Appendix Item 6), supplemental details shall be shown on Fund Form DC-5 (Appendix Item 9). In general, the Fund only pays for work in place, and the Contract breakdown should only reflect these types of activities, with the exception of bonds. Bonds should be listed as Item 1 on the Contract Breakdown Sheet (CF-C2); proper proof of payment of the bonds as required by the Fund shall be provided before payment of said item. The guarantee item, if required by the Contract, shall be listed as the last item. Any deviations to this format as requested by the Contractor, shall have the approval of both the Consultant and the Fund. The Contract breakdown should be forwarded to the Fund with recommendations. The Consultant must have the Fund's concurrence of the Contract breakdown prior to approval.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 12 Construction Phase

After review of the Contractor's Contract Breakdown and the Consultant's recommendation, the Fund will advise, in writing, the Consultant of its decision. This decision will be communicated, in writing, by the Consultant to the Contractor. 3. LIST OF PROPOSED SUBCONTRACTORS AND VENDORS: All subcontractors are approved by the Consultant but only with Fund's concurrence with the exception of the subcontractors designated by the Fund in the Notice of Award. The General Contractor is responsible to submit a complete subcontractor's listing with qualification within 30 days of Notice of Award. 4. COST PROPOSALS: (See Change Order / Field Order Section for more detailed information). 5. CLAIMS: (See Claims and Disputes). When a Contractor reserves his rights and submits a claim, the Consultant must then review the claim and provide comments and recommendations to the Fund. No copy of this correspondence is sent to the Contractor or the Campus. The Fund will review the Consultant's recommendations and respond. COMMUNICATION WITH BONDING COMPANY: No communication should be sent by the Consultant employed by the Fund to a Contractor's Bonding Company unless such a letter has been approved, in writing, by either the Fund's Counsel or Assistant General Manager, Office of Construction Management. REPORTS TO THE FUND: The Consultant must submit the following reports to the Fund: · Log of shop drawings and sample submittals (Substitutions and equivalents must be identified) - Monthly Daily Field Reports - As Requested Open Item Log at Project Meetings RFI Log at Project Meetings Log of required tests ­ At onset of project, updated as requested O&M Training and Commissioning Requirements ­ As requested

· · · · ·

The format for each respective report shall be submitted by the Consultant within the first 30 days to the Fund for approval. CONSTRUCTION PHASE REVIEW OF SUBMITTALS: For all Fund projects which include a liquidated damages clause, every effort is to be made to avoid situations that would stimulate claims for delay or impact to be made against the Fund. Such claims nullify the effectiveness of the liquidated damages clause and cause untenable delays in construction. During the construction phase, shop drawings and other submittals of the Contractor are to be reviewed and, when acceptable, approved promptly. Shop drawings are to be reviewed as quickly as possible after their receipt and approval letters sent to the Contractor immediately when such drawings and other submittals are acceptable.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 13 Construction Phase

When shop drawings and other submittals are found unacceptable or incorrect, their rejection should be prompt, complete and documented. Whenever shop drawings and other submittals do not meet Contract requirements, the Consultant is to notify the Contractor immediately, in writing, with a copy of the notification to the Fund. FULL-TIME SUPERINTENDENT: Section 2.06 of the Contract requires a full-time superintendent. In his absence, an individual must be named, acceptable to the Consultant and Fund, having authority to receive and execute instructions given by the Consultant or its representative. The full-time superintendent with qualifications must be submitted to the Consultant and the Fund for acceptance. JOB MEETINGS: Job meetings are to be scheduled and conducted by the Consultant at least bi-weekly and more frequently, if deemed necessary. The Consultant representative, subconsultants (as stipulated in the Consultant's Agreement), the Fund Project Coordinator, the Contractor and subcontractor or subcontractors (as requested) are to attend. A representative of the University/College may also participate, as an observer. Meeting minutes are to be issued by the Consultant. BACKCHARGE: When a Contractor fails to perform what the Consultant considers Contract work, the Consultant must direct the Contractor, in writing, to perform the work prior to taking any other action to complete the work. The Consultant must obtain prior approval from the Fund before such a letter is transmitted to the Contractor (see Item 20 of Appendix for sample letter). ASBESTOS ABATEMENT: The Contractor will be required to provide substantial documentation, in duplicate, for Asbestos Abatement work. Appendix Item 21 is an Asbestos Material Removal Fact Sheet that must be completed and submitted to the Fund prior to any work commencing on asbestos abatement. In addition to this Fact Sheet, the Contractor will be required to provide documentation relative to the required notification, tests, licenses, approvals, certifications, etc., that are required by specifications for the project. Prior to the commencement of work involving asbestos demolition, removal and/or renovation, the Contractor must submit to the Fund the name of its on-site asbestos supervisor responsible for such operations, together with documentation that such supervisor has completed an Environmental Protection Agency approved training course for asbestos supervisors. A Pre-Abatement Meeting will be held prior to commencement of work. This information must be recorded on the Asbestos Material Removal Fact Sheet (Appendix Item 21). PCB TRANSFORMERS AND CONTAMINATED MATERIAL: Projects that require the removal and disposal of regulated material such as PCB Transformers, contaminated duct work, hazardous and non-hazardous contaminated material, etc. will require detailed record keeping. Appendix Item 22 is a fact sheet for record keeping on these types of projects. The actual records that should be kept in the project files will vary, depending on the project and type of material removed. The fact sheet should be completed by the Fund Project Coordinator from information supplied by the Contractor and the Consultant.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 14 Construction Phase

SALES AND USE TAXES AND EXEMPTIONS: Under the Fund's lump-sum contract, all supplies and materials incorporated into the project are exempt from all local and State sales and compensating use taxes, unless stated otherwise by the Fund. No sales tax exemption certificate or other certificate is required to be issued by the Fund for such exemption. However, under the requirements of the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (518-457-5431 or www.tax.ny.gov), each Contractor must file a request for Tax Exemption Certificate (Form ST-120.1) which it will be required to supply to its vendors and subcontractors. CHANGE AND FIELD ORDERS: Fund procedures are intended to minimize the number of change and field orders. All change and field orders must be authorized by the Fund in writing. No action should be taken by the Consultant to solicit proposals for changed work from the Contractor without prior approval of the Fund. Whenever feasible, changes must be priced before work is authorized. In the case of emergency or under conditions where the scope of work cannot be determined in advance without causing unacceptable impact to the progress of the work, the Fund will direct the Consultant to issue an Authorization to Proceed letter. Proceed Orders are issued only when time is of the essence and proper staffing of an anticipated change will materially impact the completion of a project or result in additional costs to the Fund. The accepted form for such a letter appears in the Appendix of this document (Item 19). Prompt payment for all work satisfactorily completed is Fund policy. Therefore, timely processing of change and field orders is required so as to not impede job progress. This necessitates the Contractor to submit a complete package with breakdowns for processing. Information copies of all correspondence between the Consultant and the Contractor regarding change orders and field orders are to be furnished concurrently to the designated Fund Project Coordinator and the field office. After a change has been authorized in principle by the Fund, the Consultant must request the Contractor to present a proposal showing a detailed breakdown of items of work including an overall value for labor and material and the portions of work to be done by the Contractor and/or Subcontractors. Unsupported lump-sum quotations are not acceptable. Where appropriate, Contract unit prices should be utilized and identified as such. The Consultant must review the Contractor's proposal for reasonableness of the itemization, quantities and prices and for Contract compliance. If the proposal is acceptable, the Consultant should submit the proposal together with their review and recommendations, to the Fund's Project Coordinator to obtain authorization to either prepare a formal change order/ Field Order approval. The Letter of Recommendation should include the following items: a. b. c. Statement describing the change. The reason for the change. A copy of the detailed quotation (proposal) submitted by the Contractor, suppliers, and subcontractors.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

d. e. f. g. h. i.

The Consultant's stated evaluation of the reasonableness of quantities and price in accordance with Sections 2.04, 2.05 and 4.02 through 4.05A of the Contract. Attachment of, or reference to, supplementary data such as descriptive literature, sketches, revised drawings, etc The Consultant's recommendation for an extension of time (which the Contractor must have explicitly requested in writing for a specific period). An indication as to whether the change will require work of other trades and if so, whether work will involve additional costs, changes or credits. Recitation of form, agent and date of advance authorization by the Fund. Any other pertinent data.

The Contractor is not to be copied with the Consultant's letter of recommendation to the Fund. The Fund will electronically transmit change orders, Form CF-C9, to the Consultant. The Consultant will sign three (3) copies and transmit same to the Contractor directing same to sign all three (3) copies and to return all originals to the Change Order Section of the Fund. Upon approval of the change order, approved copies will electronically be transmitted. For Field Orders, the Fund will electronically transmit the authorization letter to the Contractor. The Contractor can then request payment for any completed work via the Contract allowance. The change/field order form contains the cost and a description of the work with reference to applicable drawings. Necessary deletions from and/or additions to the specifications should appear in the body of the change/field order under the "Description of Change" portion or on a separate attached sheet. The total amount shown on the body of each change/field order, including those computed on the basis of unit prices, is to be a lump sum. After a change order has been processed by the Fund, the Fund will forward two copies to the Consultant, who, in turn must retain one copy and deliver one to the Contractor. The Contractor's Monthly Application for Payment should list all executed change orders on SUCF Form CF-C3 with the summation of additive and deductive change orders posted on Form CF-C2 (see Appendix Items 6 and 7). All approved field orders will be listed on SUCF Form CF-C11 (see Appendix Item 8). CLAIMS AND DISPUTES: If a Contractor maintains that any work being performed is extra work to the Contract and the Consultant does not agree with the Contractor's position, the Contractor must follow the procedures outlined in Article 11, Section 2.03 of the Contract. The Contractor must also follow these procedures if he believes any action by the Consultant or the Fund is contrary to terms and conditions of the Contract. When a Contractor fails to perform what the Consultant considers Contract work, the Consultant must direct the Contractor, in writing, to perform the work prior to taking any other action to complete the work. The Consultant must obtain prior approval from the Fund before such a letter is transmitted to the Contractor (see Item 20 of Appendix for sample letter).

After a payment request has been submitted to the Fund, a button to print the Payment Certification Page will appear. (The certification page can also be printed at a later date from the reports tab.) Once printed, the Certification Page must be signed by the Contractor's authorized representative (and notarized) and then signed by the Consultant. (It is not acceptable for someone to sign "on behalf of" or "for" the authorized representative of the Contractor or the Consultant.) After the necessary signatures have been obtained, the signed Certification Page, along with any supporting documentation (see SUCF Project Coordinator for details) should be forwarded to the SUCF Project Coordinator. Last and Final Payment ­ if the application is the last payment, an additional section is printed on the certification. (Consult your SUCF Project Coordinator for additional information).

CONTRACTOR'S MONTHLY REQUESTS: At the joint review sessions, both the Contractor's and Consultant's representative must have authority to commit their firms in reference to approval of monthly payment applications. For the review session, the Contractor should prepare the draft requisition in such a way that all items have necessary backup data and all computations are accurate. A thorough understanding of Fund procedures and adherence to them will avoid delay in the processing of requisitions by the Fund Controller, and in subsequent payment by the State Comptroller. INITIAL REQUEST: Three approvals are required before a Contractor's first monthly request for payment may be processed. They are: (1) approval of the Contract by the Fund, and assignment by it of a Contract number, (2) acceptance by the Fund of the Contractor's Contract breakdown and job progress schedule, and (3) MBE/WBE Program. These should be approved before the first payment meeting. In addition, before a first monthly request for

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects Page 27 Payments and Reimbursements

payment may be processed, proof of required Contractor's insurance must have been received and approved by the Fund. The Contract breakdown must include an item for the one-year guarantee obligation and the amount thereof is to be $5,000 or one-half of one percent of the original Contract award, whichever is the lesser amount. REGULAR MONTHLY PAYMENT MEETINGS: In general, monthly payment meetings are held at approximately the same time each month at the jobsite. It is encouraged that a payment meeting be held in conjunction with a bi-weekly project meeting. Approximately five working days prior to the monthly payment meeting the Contractor shall prepare and review on site a draft copy of the payment application with the Consultant/Site Representative. Draft copy is to include Contract Breakdown CF-2, listing of Change Orders and Field Orders, and any appropriate Requisition Work Sheet DC-5's. Initial comments and questions by the Consultant should be addressed at this time. At the ensuing monthly payment meeting a final review of the application will be performed by the Fund and the Consultant(s). The Contractor will have prepared three copies of its payment application which is to include all pertinent payment forms. The Contractor prepares the Monthly Application as follows: The CF-C1, CF-C2; CF-C3, CFC8, CF-C11 and DC'5's where applicable will be filled in and signed, as verification, by the Consultant and Contractor before the meeting is adjourned. The Fund Project Coordinator should leave the payment meeting with two executed Payment Forms that will be returned to the Fund's main office for processing. It is not the intent for payment applications to be mailed back and forth from Contractor to Consultant to the Fund. The hard copy of the CF-C1 Form is to be signed, notarized, dated and submitted the Fund.

The following outlines the final certification and reporting procedures required to implement Chapter 698, Laws 1988 (Labor Affidavits) for all public improvement contracts. 1. The Prime Contractor must provide each subcontractor with a copy of the schedule of wages and supplements specified in the Contract before the subcontractor's work is started. 2. The Prime Contractor must immediately obtain the subcontractor's certification. Such certification must be submitted by the prime contractor prior to or with the final payment, see form CF-C4A2 - Subcontractor's Certification - appendix item 12. 3. If a sub-subcontractor is involved, it is the subcontractor's responsibility to obtain the certification from the sub-subcontractor that he/she has in fact received the wage rates contained in the subject project. The Prime Contractor must immediately obtain the sub-subcontractor's certification from the subcontractor which must be submitted by the Prime Contractor with the final payment. See CF-C4A3 - Subcontractors Certification ­ appendix item 13. 4. If revised schedules of wages and supplements are published, the Prime Contractor must provide each subcontractor with such revised schedules and obtain a revised subcontractor's certification, and the subcontractor must follow the same procedure with each sub-subcontractor. Revised schedules must be obtained for each updated wage rate period when the respective contractor is working on site. 5.

Final payment will not be made without these certifications and it is recommended that three originals be obtained promptly by the prime contractor at the time a subcontract is executed. Please note that sending the Fund a copy at the time of certification does not relieve the Prime Contractor from the responsibility of attaching all original certifications to the final payment. GUARANTEE (LAST) PAYMENT: For projects that include a guarantee payment, the term "Guarantee Payment" is the last payment application processed once the punch list and warranty items are completed and the guarantee period expires. When project completion has been verified, the Contractor must submit to the Consultant the guarantee application for payment including CF-C1, CF-C4A1 accompanied by C-5 - Release Form throughout the Fund's Electronic Payment Application.

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 35 Closeout of Construction Contract

GENERAL

Except where the Campus requires partial acceptance or possession prior to completion of the contract, the steps detailed in this section of this manual entitled "Final Payment" and "End of Guarantee Period" will apply. The following guidelines are intended to standardize Fund procedures for closeout of construction Contracts and are published for the information and guidance of Campuses Consultants, Contractors and the Fund. "Final Inspections" are made before turning over a project to Campus control. Guarantee inspections are made near the end of the guarantee period, normally just prior to one full year after formal acceptance of the project by the Fund and project turnover to Campus control.

COMPLETION AND ACCEPTANCE

SUBSTANTIALLY COMPLETE: When all Contract work is substantially complete and the project can be utilized for its intended purpose the Contractor must submit a letter to the Director of Construction, copied to the Consultant, stating that the project is ready for inspection. If a building permit has been issued on the project, see section Certificates of Occupancy below for required documentation. FACILITY READY: The Consultant and the Fund Project Coordinator have jointly determined that the facility is prepared for final inspection. INSPECTION AND PUNCH LIST DEVELOPMENT: The process of developing and issuing the punch list will vary depending on the scope, value and type of project. Projects with limited scope and value may condense process into fewer phases. Projects with vast scope and value may expand process into several phases. The following provides an outline for developing the punch list: 1. The Consultant must prepare a complete list with explicit descriptions of all uncompleted work for the project. Concurrently, the Consultant shall have all subconsultants prepare a complete list with explicit descriptions of all uncompleted work for the project. The list must be issued as a single uniform document from the Consultant incorporating items provided by all sub-consultants. The list of deficiencies will be utilized for a final inspection walk through by the Fund, Campus, Consultant, Subconsultants and Contractor. 2. The Campus, Consultant, Contractor and Fund must review the list independently or as a group prior to or while physically inspecting the project. 3. The inspection shall be performed as follows: · · · Roof Interior space Mechanical and electrical systems

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 36 Closeout of Construction Contract

· ·

Exterior Site work

4. After the inspection has been completed, any new items discovered during the inspection will be added to the list. The uncompleted work list, as amended during the inspection, should be reproduced by the Consultant and furnished to the Contractor, the Campus and the Fund. If necessary, the Campus, Consultant, Sub-consultants, Contractor, and Mechanical and Electrical Subcontractors will assemble for a meeting conducted by the Fund representatives. Questions will be addressed concerning incomplete or missing items and punch list completion schedule. The Fund will utilize the list of items as the basis for the final acceptance punch list. It shall be the prerogative of the Fund as the result of the inspection to make the decision to accept the facility from the Contractor. Additional punch list items shall not be added after the Fund has issued the punch list with the "Final Inspection and Acceptance" letters. The Contractor must complete the punch list prior to the end of guarantee and before receiving final payment. Items will not be added to the punch list after final inspection. In the event a defect develops or is discovered subsequent to final acceptance, the issue will be identified as a guarantee item. Guarantee items are to be resolved as soon as possible, during the guarantee period. The heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems of a building may not be effectively balanced until the building is fully occupied. Preliminary balancing may be required ahead of the final inspection, may be required. Final balancing of these systems may be considered to be a Contract requirement to be met after final acceptance. All equipment in the building must be running during the walk-through. The Campus will be given the opportunity to acknowledge the Final Inspection and Acceptance, but concurrence by the Campus is not required to close out a project. This procedure will be modified, as required, depending on scope and size of project. CONTRACT REQUIREMENTS: Conditional to the scope and value of the project, the Contract documents will require various forms of documentation and inspections required for final acceptance of a project. Therefore, each project will entail development of a unique process leading to final acceptance. The process may include, and not be limited to: · · · · · · · · Demonstration of equipment Development and review of operation manuals Testing Development and review of record drawings As built drawings Warranties Commissioning electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems Coordination of commissioning agent requirements

PARTIAL ACCEPTANCE: Contracts which include multiple buildings, phased construction, rehabilitation of limited areas of buildings, or site utility work may be partially accepted using

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects Page 37 Closeout of Construction Contract

the procedure described above for each building, phase, building segment or specific utility individually. When a project is ready for final inspection in the winter and the exterior and site work cannot be properly inspected. The Fund will follow the above procedure, excluding exterior and site work for later inspection and turnover. CERTIFICATES OF COMPLETION OR OCCUPANCY: A project for which a building permit has been issued requires a Certificate of Completion or Certificate of Occupancy to be issued by the Office of Design and Construction Management - appendix item 30. A Temporary Certificate of Completion or Occupancy may be issued for a partial acceptance ­ appendix item 31. Prior to issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy, the following forms and letters must be completed: · · · · · Completion letter from the Contractor ­ appendix Item A-27 Acceptance letter from the Consultant with uncompleted work list ­ appendix Item A-28 The Construction Inspection Report ­ appendix item A-32 The Final Inspection Report ­ appendix item A-33 The Fact Sheet ­ appendix item A-34

A project for which a Building Permit Waiver has been issued will not require a Certificate of Completion or Occupancy. The Construction Inspection Report, Final Inspection Report, and Fact Sheet are not required for projects with Building Permit Waivers. PROJECT DELAYS: Timely acceptance and turnover to the Campus and timely execution of project documentation is important. A memo must be included in the project close out documentation for any project which has been accepted more than 6 months after the Contract completion date as indicated in the bid documents. Likewise, a memo must be included in the project close out documentation for any project which is being accepted effective more than 6 months prior to the date of the Final Inspection and Acceptance letters. The Project Delay Memo should detail the extent of and reasons for the delay. TURNOVER TO THE CAMPUS: The turnover is documented by formal letters of "Final Inspection and Acceptance," to the Campus President and the Contractor from the Assistant General Manager, Office of Design and Construction Management or the Director of Construction. Turnover of a portion of the project shall be documented similarly. Prior to issuing formal letters of Final Inspection and Acceptance, all projects require the following documents to be completed and submitted for inclusion in the Contract file. · · · · · Completion letter from the Contractor ­ appendix Item A-27 Acceptance letter from the Consultant with uncompleted work list ­ appendix Item A-28 Campus Sign-off ­ appendix Item A-35 Building Permit Waiver as previously issued or Certificate of Completion or Occupancy and related documents Project Delay Memo, if required

Office of Construction Management Management of Construction Projects

Page 38 Closeout of Construction Contract

END OF ONE-YEAR GUARANTEE PERIOD

The one-year guarantee normally starts with the jointly agreed upon date of turnover for each portion of a facility. Approximately, thirty days prior to end of the one-year guarantee period, the Fund shall request the Campus to submit a list of items, in writing, to be considered for inclusion in the Consultant's formal "guarantee list" to be transmitted to the Contractor. The Fund will provide this listing to the Consultant who in turn will notify the Campus and the Fund of items that are not considered covered by the guarantee and issue the final list to the Contractor. Additional items will not be added once the final consultant/campus guarantee list has been generated. The Campus will be given the opportunity to acknowledge the End of One Year Guarantee Period, but concurrence by the Campus is not required to execute an End of One Year Guarantee Period. The Consultant or the Fund will, after the Contractor corrects all guarantee deficiencies, schedule the End of Guarantee inspection after coordinating with the Campus and the Fund. If any guarantee items are still not completed at the time of inspection, the Contractor will have to complete all guarantee items before a guarantee payment is made. Timely completion of work and timely execution of project documentation is important. A memo must be included in the project close out documentation for any project for which End of One Year Guarantee Period letters are dated more than 18 months after the effective date of project acceptance. The Project Delay Memo should detail the extent of and reasons for the delay. The end of the one year guarantee period will be documented by formal letters to the Campus and the Contractor. Prior to issuing formal End of One Year Guarantee letters, all projects require the following documents to be completed and submitted for inclusion in the Contract file. · · · · Campus Sign-off ­ appendix item A-38 End of One Year Guarantee Period letter to Campus ­ appendix item A-39 End of One Year Guarantee Period letter to Contractor ­ appendix item A-40 Delay Memo, if required
