Section 1.03  Overall coordination of the Project will be the responsibility of the District Representative.  All inquiries regarding the bid are to be directed to District Representative, Windy Buller, windyb@capitalpm.com.

All Project procedures and documents are designed to facilitate delivery of the Project through prime construction contracts. The District's forms shall be used for all documents. Bidders shall read and review the Bidding Documents carefully, and shall familiarize themselves thoroughly with all requirements.

 

Section 1.05  Each bid proposal shall conform to the requirements of the Contract Documents.  The bid documents may be obtained at bidder’s expense from Signature Reprographics, (916) 454-0800 or electronically at signaturerepro.com.

If a Bidder is unable to obtain the full 3% participation by one or more DVBEs, then the bid may be found responsive only if it establishes “good faith efforts” to meet the goal.  The requirements for good faith efforts are set forth in Special Provisions Section 00 8000, Article 4 and the attachments thereto.

 

Section 1.09  The successful Bidder shall be required to pay its workers on this Project a sum not less than the general prevailing rate (applicable at time of bid advertisement date) 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 1726-1861. Copies of the prevailing rate of per diem wages are on file at the Vacaville Unified School 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://www.dir.ca.gov/OPRL/DPreWageDetermination.htm  Refer to General Conditions Section 00 7000, Article 7.  The Project is subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Industrial Relations.

 

Section 1.10  The governing board of the District reserves the right to reject any and all proposals and to waive any irregularity in any proposals received.

 

Section 1.11  At the request and expense of the successful Bidder, eligible securities shall be accepted in lieu of retention payments to insure performance under the Contract, pursuant to California Public Contract Code Section 22300. Refer to Exhibit H and General Conditions Section 00 7000, Article 12, Section 12.05.
