Notice is hereby given that the Board of Trustees of the Vacaville Unified School District (“District”) will receive sealed Bids for the Bid Package # 18-05: Jepson MS Soil Stockpile Relocation Project (“Project”).

 

The Project consists of relocating contaminated soil, covering the soil with 4” of existing clean top soil, and hydroseeding the disturbed areas.  (Refer to Exhibit F to Form of Contract, Section 1.03 Scope of Work)

 

Required Contractors License Classification:  A or B or C12

 

Any questions concerning this Invitation To Bid should be directed to Patrick Neelan - (916) 553-4400 PatrickN@CapitalPM.com.

 

Notice is hereby given that the Project is a public works project within the requirements of Division 2, Part 7, Chapter 1 of the California Labor Code, and that each bidder and listed subcontractor is required to be registered pursuant to Labor Code section 1725.5 at the time of bidding.  Failure of the bidder or a listed subcontractor to be registered at the time of bidding shall render the bid non-responsive and unavailable for award.

 

The successful Bidder shall be required to pay its workers on this Project a sum not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages and not less than the general prevailing rate for holiday and overtime work for work of a similar character in the locality in which the Project is performed, as provided under California Labor Code sections 1720 through 1861. Copies of the prevailing rate of per diem wages are on file at the District, 401 Nut Tree Road, Vacaville, CA 95687, and shall be made available to any interested party upon request. They may also be obtained on the Internet at http://dir.ca.gov/OPRL/DPreWageDetermination.htm.  The Project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations.

 

Every Bid shall set forth information on subcontractors required by California Public Contract Code sections 4100 to 4114, inclusive.  Failure to list a subcontractor for a portion of work, if required, is a representation that the Bidder will perform that portion of work itself.

 

Proposals are due:

 

Location:          Vacaville Unified School District

                                    401 Nut Tree Road, Vacaville, CA 95687

 

Bid Date/Time: Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 1:00 PM                              

 

Untimely Bids will not be accepted or opened.

 

It shall be the responsibility of each prospective Bidder, upon discovery of any ambiguity or discrepancy in the bid form, specifications, or drawings, to bring such ambiguity or discrepancy to the attention of the District prior to the Bid date and time.  Failure to raise any such ambiguity or discrepancy prior to the Bid deadline shall waive the Bidder’s right to object to the ambiguity or discrepancy after bidding.

 

Bids shall be completed and submitted in a sealed envelope. On the face of the envelope, clearly write “Bid Proposal - Do Not Open” and indicate the Contractor’s Name and Address, and Bid Package # and Description. Failure to fully complete and submit all pages of the Bid Form may result in the Bid being rejected as non-responsive.

 

By submitting a bid, and in compliance with the Invitation to Bid, the Bidder agrees to furnish all labor, material, equipment, transportation, tax (including sales and use tax) and services for the work described in the Bid Documents for the price specified.  All costs for Bid Bonds, Labor and Material (Payment) Bonds and Performance Bonds shall be included in the Bid price.

 

An optional site visit will occur on March 28, 2018 at 3:00 PM to allow prospective Bidders to become familiar with the site.  Bidders should meet at Jepson Middle School Administration Office.  By submitting a Bid, the Bidder represents that it has visited the Project site and is familiar with the local conditions under which the Work will be performed.  Failure to visit the site will not relieve the Bidder of the responsibility for observing and considering those conditions which a contractor would have observed and considered during a site visit, estimating properly the difficulty and cost of successfully performing the Work or proceeding to perform the Work without additional cost to the District.

 

With its Bid, the Bidder must submit a Cashier’s Check, Certified Check or Bid Bond for ten percent (10%) of the total amount of the bid, made payable to the Vacaville Unified School District.  Failure to submit required bid security will result in the Bid being rejected as non-responsive.

 

Bids will be opened publicly and read aloud at the time and date established above. Bids shall not expire for 30 days after the Bid due date.

 

If awarded, the Contract will be awarded to the lowest responsive, responsible Bidder.  The District reserves the right to waive any irregularity in any Bid, and reserves the right to reject all Bids.  The successful Bidder will be notified via Notice of Intent to Award, and shall submit a Labor and Material (Payment) Bond and Performance Bond, each in the amount of 100% of the Contract Price, prior to issuance of the Notice to Proceed.

 

Any Bidder may file a protest against the award of the Contract to any other Bidder.  The protest must be in writing, filed within five (5) calendar days after the opening of bids, and must set forth all grounds for the protest.  Untimely protests and/or grounds not set forth in the protest will not be considered.  Failure to comply with these protest requirements waives the right to challenge the bidding process or the award in any administrative or judicial tribunal and forever bars the Bidder from bringing such a challenge.  The District will provide a written response to any timely bid protest.
