Home I-Vision II-Preliminary Design III-Final Design IV-Pre-Construction V-Construction VI-Retrospect


Introduction

The construction phase of projects is very visible and generally there are travel/inconveniences and neighborhood disruptions. For this reason, it is the most important phase for City staff and Consultants to plan for the least possible construction time period.

A partnering or the team approach usually is recommended. The Contractor, utility companies, City staff and Consultant all work as a team to construct the project. The tasks in this and previous phases facilitates this partnering process.

In order to have a successful project, the following must occur:

  • Contract documents executed promptly.
  • Discuss/resolve relevant issues/problems at the pre-construction conference.
  • Review/approve shop drawings within the promised time period.
  • Pay the Contractor promptly.
  • Provide adequate inspection resources in order not to delay the Contractor.
  • Notify the Contractor if the submitted schedule is not maintained. Schedule bi-weekly meetings, if necessary, to keep the project on schedule.

Phase V Checklist

Task No. 1 - Prepare for Temporary Financing

The Law Department will prepare the documents for providing project temporary financing when required.

Task No. 2 - Submit Agency Cash Flow Projection

Top

Prior to Notice to Proceed, the Project Manager shall submit to the project funding agencies, if required, a project cash flow projection on their standard forms. Currently, Johnson County CARS, Johnson County SMAC and KDOT do not require a cash flow projection.

Task No. 3 - Submit Cash Flow Projection to City Finance Department

Top

Prior to Notice to Proceed, the Project Manager shall submit a cash flow for the project (update if applicable) to the City Finance Department.

See Phase II, Task No. 6 for standard cash flow form.

Task No. 4 - Distribute Executed Contract Documents

Top

Copies of the Contract Documents need to be prepared for the Contractor’s execution. The Agreement, Performance Bond, Maintenance Bond, Statutory Bond and/or Labor and Material Payment Bond, and Appointment of Service Agent are partially filled out by the Contract Specialist and provided to the Contractor for execution. The Appointment of Service Agent is not required if the Contractor’s business is located in the state of Kansas or if the Contractor is located outside of Kansas but is on file and in good standing with the State. The Contract Specialist will obtain this information through the Kansas Secretary of State’s office.

The Contractor is given ten (10) days to execute their part of the Contract Documents. The Contractor must have all insurance certificates, bonds and Appointment of Service Agent filled out, sealed, with Power of Attorneys attached. The Contract Specialist will review the insurance certificates to ensure compliance with the requirements set forth in the Instructions to Bidders.

After review by the Contract Specialist, the Contract Documents are submitted to the Law Department for review and "approval as to form." After Law Department review, they are submitted to the City Clerk's office for signature by the Mayor and attestation by the City Clerk.

Exhibit No. V-4a is a sample transmittal letter to the Contractor.

Upon return of the signed copies by the City Clerk, three fully executed sets are given to the Contractor (one is to be forwarded to the Contractor’s surety company and one to their insurance company), one is given to the consultant, one is kept in the Public Works file, and one goes to the City Clerk with the award/reject letters. The remaining sets are provided to various other agencies as needed (i.e.: for CARS projects the City must submit to the Johnson County Director of Infrastructure, one copy of the executed Contract Documents and a half size set of signed and sealed Construction Plans along with a CD containing a .pdf version of the executed Contract Documents and Construction Plans.) The County also requires a list of CARS non-participating items with the transmittal. The City must also request and receive a "Notice to Proceed" from the Johnson County Director of Infrastructure before initiating construction on a project. For a letter detailing the CARS requirements see Exhibit No. III-9c.

Exhibit No. V-4b is a sample Contract Document and Plans transmittal letter to CARS with request for "Notice to Proceed".
Exhibit No. V-4c is a distribution list of agencies and personnel that are to receive executed Contract Documents and Final Plans.

In addition to contract documents sent to BLP electronically, provide BLP PM with half-size set of construction plans.

Prior to issuing Notice to Proceed for KDOT projects, the Project Manager will request from the contractor copies of all subcontracts. The Project Manager will verify that each of these subcontracts contain FHWA 1273 documents.

Task No. 15 - On-Going Change Orders

Top

The Consultant/Project Manager shall prepare a change order to construct additional items of work, modify the contract time, or change the character and scope of the work. Each change order shall include a change to the contract time, or indicate that no change in the contract time is included. The change order shall be signed by the contractor prior to execution by the City. Refer to COP 247

A final change order shall be prepared at the end of each project indicating final quantities (overruns and underruns).

All changes must be listed on the Final Paid Items List, and units and unit prices must be the same as on the Bid Item List. For example, if the bid item is 1 LS $10,000, it can only be adjusted in $10,000 increments.

Change orders will be submitted using the unit prices from the original bid tabs when possible. If unit prices for the work area aren't included in the original paid items list, the City and the Contractor will negotiate a price. The City will conduct a cost analysis and submit the proposal from the contractor as backup documentation to BLP.

Line items shall never be completely removed from the original bid tabs/paid items list. If line items are deleted or zeroed out by change order, they must be listed at the bottom of the pay estimate in the change order section as negative amounts.

See an example of the Final Paid Items List (FPIL).

Non-participating items shall be clearly marked on the original bid tabs, plans, pay estimates and change orders. Email correspondence regarding the prior approval and determination of federal participation of the change order items between the City and KDOT shall be submitted as backup documentation with change orders. Once the determination of participation has been made, the items will be marked accordingly on the pay estimates.

When following these procedures, reimbursement of funds shall be accomplished on a monthly basis when the city submits a proper billing certification that the project is being constructed within compliance of approved plans and specifications. Billing shall be by CMS work phases which include Preliminary Engineering (PE), Right of Way (ROW), Utilities, Construction Engineering (CE) and Construction.

The City will conduct a cost analysis of all changes to the contract included in the change order request in accordance with the Contract General Conditions.

For KDOT projects - often changes occur during construction of a project that require adjusting the compensation paid to a contractor. All changes must be within the scope and limits of the project. All changes, including force account changes, must be accompanied by an independent estimate. Per KDOT's Standard Specifications for State Road and Bridge Construction Section 104.9a, all direct and indirect costs associated with the Contract Change, including labor, materials, equipment, overhead, profit, impact costs and other costs for which the Contractor claims compensation is owed, shall be included in the change order request. Do not include costs as listed in Subsection 104.9c.

When receiving Federal Aid for inspection, the City will submit requests for reimbursement to the Local Construction Manager with proper documentation.

All change orders require prior approval from the Local Construction Manager. All changes require approval/concurrence by BLP prior to any of the work being initiated, using KDOT Form 1314 (Contract Order Form).
