The responses to bidder' inquiries, unless incorporated into a formal addenda to the contract, are not a part of the contract and are provided for the bidder's convenience only. In some instances, the question and answer may represent a summary of the matters discussed rather than a word-for-word recitation. The responses may be considered along with all other information furnished to prospective bidders for the purpose of bidding on the project. The availability or use of information provided in the responses to bidder' inquiries is not to be construed in any way as a waiver of the provisions of Section 2-1.03 of the Standard Specifications or any other provision of the contract, the plans, Standard Specifications or Special Provisions, nor to excuse the contractor from full compliance with those contract requirements.

Question: Your answer ignores the fact that the other referenced contract
out for bid (11-261714) has no room for placement of leaded dirt in the
basic design. Room for leaded dirt is to be created by overexcavating
and exporting clean dirt, presumably to some place a lot closer and a
great deal less expensive than a Class I dump, and then placing the
leaded dirt in the void thus created. Why not do the same thing on this
project and save the taxpayers some money?
