688.3 CONSTRUCTION —
Furnish microcomputer for Department use no later than 3 working days after the Notice to Proceed date or 3 days prior to the scheduled start of work. Provide the type of microcomputer specified for Type A & Type B microcomputers and install in the Inspector's Field Office. Maintain the system from installation until at least 30 days after physical work has been satisfactorily completed unless released earlier by the Engineer. The Engineer may direct that the system be maintained for more than 30 days after physical work has been satisfactorily completed, as necessary, to allow time for Department personnel to process outstanding project records. Remove and properly dispose of all dispensable items for the life of the Project and upon release by the Engineer.
688.4 MEASUREMENT AND PAYMENT —
Paid in three payments, in accordance with the following schedule:
Whenever the requirements of Section 688.2(a) have been met and compatibility satisfactorily demonstrated to the Engineer, 80% of the amount bid for this item will be paid.
Whenever work representing 40% of the total contract price is completed, excluding the bid price for this item, 10% of the amount bid for this item will be paid.
Whenever work representing 80% of the total contract price is completed, excluding the bid price for this item, the remaining 10% of the amount bid for this item will be paid.
(a) Price Adjustments.
Adjustments to the lump sum price for the indicated type microcomputer, when applicable, will be made when the final adjustment of contract time has been approved and as follows:
1. Time Extensions and Reductions.
In the event contract time for completion of all work on the project is adjusted, in accordance with the provisions of Section 108.06, to be more than A or less than B of the original contract time, where A and B are as specified in Table B, an appropriate adjustment will be made to the lump sum price, for that portion of adjusted contract time in excess of A (payment to Contractor) or less than B (rebate to Department) of the original contract time, at the following daily rate:
Daily Price Adjustment Rate =
75% x Lump Sum Contract Price
Original Contract Time in Days
Original Contract Time in Days
2. System Maintained More Than 30 Days After Physical Completion.
In the event the Engineer directs that the system be maintained for more than 30 days after physical completion, as specified in Section 688.3, an appropriate adjustment will be made to the lump sum price, for the days in excess of 30 until release by the Engineer, in accordance with the Daily Price Adjustment Rate specified in Section 688.4(a)1.
