The responses to bidder's inquiries, unless incorporated into a formal addendem 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 availability or use of information provided in the responses to bidder's 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. Bidders are cautioned that subsequent responses or contract addenda may affect or vary a response previously given.
Q1) At the pre-bid meeting, pictures were shown of the culverts. Is it possible to obtain copies of these pictures?
A1) Copies will not be made available for bidders. If needed after Award, the Contractor may request copies from the Engineer. 4Feb11.
Q2) We are concerned with the number of working days for the cured-in-place lining operations. Can the contract days be extended? Or can pre-cleaning and pre-CCTV inspection occur prior to NTP to allow sufficient time for procurement of materials? The other option is to stop the contract days to allow procurement of materials.
A2) Please refer to Addendum No. 2, dated February 3, 2011. 4Feb11.
