Inquiry #1: Questions regarding the Contractor-Supplied Biologist (CSB)
Question 1:
Can you provide clarification regarding the following conflicting requirements?
-The Bid Item List indicates that 45 days are allotted for the CSB.
-Section 14-6.03A paragraph item 3 indicates that the CSB will be on-site daily.
-The contractor has 75-days to complete the work.
If the project exceeds 45-days then the existing CSB price cannot be calculated accurately. Should a daily price be listed rather than a 45-day price?

Question 2:
Because the total cost has to also pay for Precon Surveys and a BRIP should this be reflected in the daily price used in the 45-day calculation or should these be separate line items?
