Two alternative versions of the paragraph below are presented; delete the version not used. 1) The first version is for a Project that has a single prime construction contract. 2) The second version is for a multiple-prime contract project. Edit the example language in the paragraph below to describe the type of Bid required. For additional guidance, see EJCDC® C-001, Commentary. Edit to suit the Project and Owner’s requirements.
Bids will be received for a single prime Contract. Bids shall be on a lump sum and unit price basis as indicated in the Bid Form.
The purpose of the paragraphs below is to identify the Issuing Office and other locations (if any) where the Bidding Documents may be examined and obtained. The paragraph should also contain information on charges or deposits and refunds for the Bidding Documents, and information on the availability of partial sets of the Bidding Documents. Edit the paragraphs below as required for the Project.
In the first paragraph below, identify the Issuing Office. The term “Issuing Office” (with initial capital letters) is defined in Article 1 of the Instructions to Bidders. It is typically appropriate to have only one Issuing Office for a given project. In the typical case the Engineer serves as the Issuing Office, although other entities such as the Owner, a construction manager, or a third-party reproduction firm can alternatively be the Issuing Office.
In the second paragraph below, identify other locations where the Bidding Documents may be examined. Supplement the list as needed; and make revisions to avoid redundancy with the Issuing Office that has been identified in the first paragraph below.
Information and Bidding Documents for the Project can be obtained at the following designated website:
eBidDoc/Project # 7770753
Bidding Documents may be downloaded from the designated website for $15.00. Prospective Bidders are urged to register with the designated website as a Bidding Documents holder, even if Bidding Documents are obtained from a third-party plan room or source other than the designated website in either electronic or paper format. The designated website will be updated periodically with Addenda, lists of registered Bidding Document holders, and other information relevant to submitting a Bid for the Project. All official notifications, Addenda, and other documents will be offered only through the designated website. Neither Owner nor Engineer will be responsible for Bidding Documents, including Addenda, if any, obtained from sources other than the designated website.
The Issuing Office for the Bidding Documents is:
1917 South 67th Street
Omaha NE 68106
Contact: Mr. Hayden DeLay, phone: 402-926-7075, email: .
Prospective Bidders may examine the Bidding Documents at the Issuing Office on Mondays through Fridays between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. Central Time and may obtain paper copies of the Bidding Documents as described below.
The paragraphs below address the details of obtaining copies of the Bidding Documents.
When compact disc or printed copies of the Bidding Documents are furnished, the Advertisement should indicate the amount charged per set, whether the charge is fully, partially, or non-refundable, and the time frame for returning the Bidding Documents for refunds if applicable. Such provisions may be governed by statute.
Three alternative versions of the paragraph below are presented; delete the versions not used. Note that variations on these three options are possible. (a) The first version is for use when only printed copies of the Bidding Documents will be available and when the document deposit charge is fully or partially refundable. (b) The second version is for use when the principal mode of transmitting the Bidding Documents will be in electronic format on a compact disc (CD) with printed Bidding Documents also available as an alternative; the second version includes language that the document charge is non-refundable. (c) The third version is for use when the Bidding Documents are to be obtained from a third-party (such as an outside reproduction firm) that serves as the Issuing Office, and includes alternative language for downloading the Bidding Documents from a website, and printed Bidding Documents. Document charges from third-party reproduction firms are typically non-refundable.
In addition to Bidding Documents, all prospective Bidders will receive access to PDF Drawings of portions of the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant and available reports identified in the Supplementary Conditions.
The following is example language. Third-party reproduction firms vary significantly in their approaches to distributing Bidding Documents. Discuss carefully with the prospective Issuing Office the procedures, costs, and alternatives available for distributing Bidding Documents, and edit the following paragraph to suit the Issuing Office and the Project.
The paragraphs above are based on electronic Bidding Documents being distributed as PDF files. If other types of files will be available, such as native CAD files or building information models (BIM), edit the Advertisement accordingly, and review the provisions of EJCDC® C-001, Narrative Guide, regarding file formats other than PDFs.
Coordinate the paragraph below with Article 6 of the Instructions to Bidders; to reduce the potential for conflicts, avoid specifying the information in both documents.
When attendance at the pre-bid conference is mandatory (e.g., if Owner instructs that it will not accept a Bid from a Bidder that did not attend the pre-bid conference), edit the paragraph below accordingly. Coordinate with the provisions of Article 6 of the Instructions to Bidders, as required.
A pre-bid conference will be held at 1:00 p.m. local time on April 27, 2021 at the City of Fremont, 400 E. Military Avenue, Fremont NE. Attendance at the pre-bid conference is highly encouraged but is not mandatory. A site visit will be completed following the pre-bid conference.
In the paragraphs below, edit to conform to the Bidding Documents for this Contract. See Instructions to Bidders.
Bid security shall be furnished in accordance with the Instructions to Bidders.
When applicable, include a provision to the effect of, “Bids will be accepted only from Bidders prequalified by the Owner. Contact [insert Owner contact person name and contact information] to obtain prequalification requirements.” Edit to suit the Project, or use alternative language when other qualifications requirements are sufficiently important to warrant including them in the Advertisement.
Bidders shall submit proof of qualifications to perform the Work as described in the Instructions to Bidders.
For all further requirements regarding bid submittal, qualifications, procedures, and contract award, refer to the Instructions to Bidders that are included with the Bidding Documents.
