conditions to be encountered as to the character, quality, and quantities of work to be performed and materials to
be furnished, and as to the requirements of the specifications, the general and special provisions, and the contract.
 It is mutually agreed that submission of a proposal shall be considered prima facie evidence that the bidder has
made such examination.

proposals.

check, certified check, or bidder's bond is enclosed therewith.

                                         B. CONTRACT AWARD AND EXECUTION

days after the opening of the bids. All bids will be compared on the basis of the Engineer's Estimate of quantities
of work to be done.

    (b) Execution of Contract. The contract shall be signed by the successful bidder and returned, together with
the contract bonds, within ten (10) days, not including Sundays, after the bidder has received notice that the
contract has been awarded. No proposal shall be considered binding upon the City until the execution of the
contract.

        Failure to execute a contract and file acceptable bonds, as provided herein within ten (10) days, not
including Sundays, after the bidder has received notice that the contract has been awarded, shall be just cause for
the annulment of the award and the forfeiture of the proposal guaranty.

least "B," or in the alternative, an unlicensed surety having an "A" rating. Each of the said bonds shall be executed
in a sum equal to the contract price. One of the said bonds shall guarantee the faithful performance of the said
contract by the Contractor; and the other of the said bonds shall be furnished as required by the terms of an act
entitled:

         "An act to secure the payment of the claims of persons employed by contractors upon public works, and
the claims of persons who furnish materials, supplies, teams, implements, or machinery used or consumed by
such contractors in the performance of such works, and prescribing the duties of certain public officers with
respect thereto:, approved May 10, 1919, as amended.

         Form of bond required may be examined at the office of the Capital Project Services Director or copies will
be furnished, if desired, to prospective bidders.

         Whenever any surety or sureties on any such bonds, or on any bonds required by law for the protection of
the claims of laborers and material men, become insufficient, or the Capital Project Services Director has cause to
believe that such surety or sureties have become insufficient, a demand in writing may be made of the Contractor
for such further bond or bonds or additional surety not exceeding that originally required, as is considered
necessary, considering the extent of the work remaining to be done. Thereafter no payment shall be made upon
such contract to the Contractor or any assignee of the Contractor until such further bond or bonds or additional
surety has been furnished.

                                                      C. SCOPE OF WORK

    (a) Work to be Done. The work to be done consists of furnishing all labor, methods and processes,
implements, tools, machinery, and materials, except as otherwise specified, which are necessary and required to
construct and put in complete order for use the portion of the street, road, public right of way, or public property
designated in the contract, and to leave the grounds or property in a neat condition.

     (b) Alterations. The City of Chico reserves the right to increase or decrease the quantity of any item or portion
of the work or to omit portions of the work as may be deemed necessary or expedient by the Engineer, also to
make such alterations or deviations, increases or decreases, additions or omissions, in the plans and
specifications, as may be determined during the progress of the work to be necessary and advisable.

    (c) Extra Work. New and unforeseen work will be classed as extra work when such work cannot be covered
by any of the various items or combinations of items for which there is a bid price.

       The Contractor shall do no extra work except upon written order from the Engineer. For such extra work,
the Contractor shall receive payment as previously agreed upon in writing, or he shall be paid on force account.

        Upon receipt of a written order for extra work from the Engineer the Contractor shall provide a
written response in no more that five (5) working days detailing the work and the costs for same.

    (d) Removal of Obstructions. The Contractor shall remove and dispose of all structures, debris, or other
obstructions of any character to the construction of the street or road, if and as required by the Engineer.

        The Contractor shall remove and dispose of all trees designated by the Engineer as obstructions to the
proper completion of the work.

    (e) Final Cleaning Up. Before acceptance and final payment, the Contractor shall clean the street or road,
borrow pits, and all ground occupied by him in connection with the work, of all rubbish, excess
materials, temporary structures, and equipment; and all parts of the work shall be left in a neat and presentable
condition.

                                                 D. CONTROL OF THE WORK




R:\FORMS\CAFORMS\DPW STD\Provisions\Gen Prevailing $1-2M.wpd
CA Std Form 08/06/09                                           GP2
     (a) Authority of the Engineer. The Engineer shall decide all questions which may arise as to the quality or
acceptability of materials furnished and work performed, and as to the manner of performance and rate of progress
of the work; all questions which arise as to the interpretation of the plans and specifications; all questions as to the
acceptable fulfillment of the contract on the part of the Contractor; and all questions as to claims and
compensation.

       The Engineer's decision shall be final and he shall have executive authority to enforce and make effective
such decisions and orders as the Contractor fails to carry out promptly.

    (b) Plans. All authorized alterations affecting the requirements and information given on the approved plans
shall be in writing. No changes shall be made of any plan or drawing after the same has been approved by the
Engineer, except by direction of the Engineer.

         Working drawings or plans for any structure not included in the plans furnished by the Engineer, shall be
approved by the Engineer before any work involving these plans shall be performed, unless approval be waived in
writing by the Engineer.

         It is mutually agreed, however, that approval by the Engineer of the Contractor's working plans does not
relieve the Contractor of any responsibility for accuracy of dimensions and details, and that the Contractor shall be
responsible for agreement and conformity of his working plans with the approved plans and specifications.

    (c) Conformity with Plans and Allowable Deviation. Finished surfaces in all cases shall conform with the lines,
grades, cross-sections, and dimensions shown on the approved plans. Deviations from the approved plans, as
may be required by the exigencies of construction, will be determined in all cases by the Engineer and authorized
in writing.

     (d) Interpretation of Plans and Specifications. Should it appear that the work to be done, or any matter
relative thereto, is not sufficiently detailed or explained in these specifications, plans, and the special provisions,
the Contractor shall apply to the Engineer for such further explanations as may be necessary, and shall conform to
such explanation or interpretation as part of the contract, so far as may be consistent with the intent to the original
specifications. In the event of doubt or question relative to the true meaning of the specifications, reference shall
be made to the Engineer, whose decision thereon shall be final.

        In the event of any discrepancy between any drawing and the figures written thereon, the figures shall be
taken as correct.

    (e) Superintendence. Whenever the Contractor is not present on any part of the work where it may be
desired to give direction, orders will be given by the Engineer in writing, and shall be received and obeyed by the
superintendent or foreman in charge of the particular work in reference to which orders are given.

   (f) Lines and Grades. All distances and measurements are given and will be made in a horizontal plane.
Grades are given from the top of stakes or nails, unless otherwise noted on the plans.

         Three consecutive points shown on the same rate of slope must be used in common, in order to detect
any variance from a straight grade, and in case any such discrepancy exists, it must be reported to the Engineer.
If such a discrepancy is not reported to the Engineer, the Contractor shall be responsible for any error in the
finished work.

    (g) Inspection. The Engineer shall at all times have access to the work during construction, and shall be
furnished with every reasonable facility for ascertaining full knowledge respecting the progress, workmanship, and
character of materials used and employed in the work.

         Whenever the Contractor varies the period during which work is carried on each day, he shall give due
notice to the Engineer, so that proper inspection may be provided. Any work done in the absence of the Engineer
will be subject to rejection.

CA Std Form 08/06/09                                           GP3
         The inspection of the work shall not relieve the Contractor of any of his obligations to fulfill the contract as
prescribed. Defective work shall be made good, and unsuitable materials may be rejected, notwithstanding the
fact that such defective work and unsuitable materials have been previously overlooked by the Engineer and
accepted or estimated for payment.

the authorized representatives of the agencies involved.

any of the requirements of these specifications shall be remedied, or removed and replaced by the Contractor in
an acceptable manner, and no compensation will be allowed for such correction.

        Any work done beyond the lines and grades shown on the plans or established by the Engineer, or any
extra work done without written authority, will be considered as unauthorized and will not be paid for.

and replaced, and unauthorized work to be removed, and to deduct the costs thereof from any moneys due or to

    (a) Samples and Tests. At the option of the Engineer, the source of supply of each of the materials shall be
approved by the Engineer before delivery is started and before such materials are used in the work.
Representative preliminary samples of the character and quality prescribed shall be submitted by the Contractor or
producer of all materials to be used in the work, for testing or examination as desired by the Engineer.

        All tests of materials furnished by the Contractor shall be made in accordance with commonly recognized
standards of national organizations, and such special methods and tests as are prescribed in these specifications.

       The Contractor shall furnish such samples of materials as are requested by the Engineer, without charge.
No material shall be used until it has been approved by the Engineer. Samples will be secured and tested
whenever necessary to determine the quality of material.

    (b) Defective Materials. All materials not conforming to the requirements of these specifications shall be
considered as defective, and all such materials, whether in place or not, shall be rejected. They shall be removed
immediately from the site of the work unless otherwise permitted by the Engineer. No rejected material, the
defects of which have been subsequently corrected, shall be used until approved in writing by the Engineer.

        Upon failure on the part of the Contractor to comply with any order of the Engineer made under the
provisions of this article, the Engineer shall have the authority to remove and replace defective material and to
deduct the cost of removal and replacement from any moneys due to become due the Contractor.

                                               F. LEGAL RELATIONS AND
                                            RESPONSIBILITIES TO THE PUBLIC

officers, boards and commissions and members thereof, its employees and agents, and shall indemnify them for

     (k) Contractor's Responsibility for Work. Except as provided above, until the formal acceptance of the work
by the City of Chico, the Contractor shall have the charge and care thereof and shall bear the risk of injury or
damage to any part thereof by the action of the elements or from any other cause, whether arising from the

company or companies with an "A" rating, which provides coverage for bodily injury, personal injury and property
damage liability in the amount of at least $1,000,000 per occurrence, and $2,000,000 in the aggregate, with a

         Contractor acknowledges and agrees that City of Chico, its officers, boards and commissions, and
members thereof, its employees and agents, are covered as additional insureds with respect to any liability arising

policy endorsement executed by an authorized official of the insurer(s). A blanket endorsement which provides
additional insured status to any person or organization with whom Contractor, as named insured, has entered into
a written contract, such as this Agreement, shall satisfy this requirement.

          The insurance coverage required herein shall be primary insurance with respect to the City of Chico, its

                                                       G. PROSECUTION

    (a) Subletting and Assignment. The Contractor shall give his personal attention to the fulfillment of the
contract and shall keep the work under his control.

         Subcontractors will not be recognized as such, and all persons engaged in the work of construction will be
considered as employees of the contractor, and their work shall be subject to the provisions of the contract and
specifications.

         Where a portion of the work sublet by the Contractor is not being prosecuted in a manner satisfactory to
the City Engineer, the subcontractor shall be removed immediately on the requisition of the City Engineer and shall
not again be employed on the work.

         The contract may be assigned only upon written consent of the City Engineer.

     (b) Character of Workmen. If any subcontractor or person employed by the Contractor shall fail or refuse to
carry out the directions of the Engineer or shall appear to the Engineer to be incompetent or to act in a disorderly
or improper manner, he shall be discharged immediately on the requisition of the Engineer, and such person shall
not again be employed on the work.

     (c) Temporary Suspension of Work. The Engineer shall have the authority to suspend the work wholly or in
part, for such period as he may deem necessary, due to unsuitable weather, or to such other conditions as are
considered unfavorable for the suitable prosecution of the work, or for such time as he may deem necessary, due
to the failure on the part of the Contractor to carry out orders given, or to perform any provisions of the work. The
Contractor shall immediately obey such order of the Engineer and shall not resume the work until ordered in
writing by the Engineer.

     (d) Time of Completion and Liquidated Damages. It is agreed by the parties to the contract that in case all the
work called for under the contract is not completed before or upon the expiration of the time limit as set forth in
these specifications, damage will be sustained by the City of Chico, and it is and will be impracticable to determine
the actual damage which the City of Chico will sustain in the event of and by reason of such delay; and it is
therefore agreed that the Contractor will pay to the City of Chico the sum of Five Hundred Dollars ($500) per day
for each and every day's delay beyond the time prescribed to complete the work; and the Contractor agrees to pay
such liquidated damages as herein provided, and in case the same are not paid, agrees that the City of Chico may
deduct the amount thereof from any money due or that may become due the Contractor under the contract.

        It is further agreed that in case the work called for under the contract is not finished and completed in all
parts and requirements within the time specified, the City of Chico shall have the right to extend the time for
completion or not, as may seem best to serve the interest of the City; and if it decides to extend the time limit for
the completion of the contract, it shall further have the right to charge to the Contractor, his heirs, assigns, or
sureties, and to deduct from the final payment for the work, all or any part, as it may deem proper, of the actual

R:\FORMS\CAFORMS\DPW STD\Provisions\Gen Prevailing $1-2M.wpd
CA Std Form 08/06/09                                           GP7
cost of engineering, inspection, superintendence, and other overhead expenses which are directly chargeable to
the contract and which accrue during the period of such extension, except that the cost of final surveys and
preparation of final estimate shall not be included in such charges.

         The Contractor shall not be assessed with liquidated damages nor the cost of engineering and inspection
during any delay in the completion of the work caused by acts of God or of the public enemy, acts of the City, fire
floods, epidemics, quarantine restrictions, strikes, freight embargoes, and unusually severe weather or delays of
subcontractors due to such causes; provided, that the Contractor shall within ten (10) days from the beginning of
any such delay notify the Engineer in writing of the causes of delay, who shall ascertain the facts and the extend of
delay, and his findings of the facts thereon shall be final and conclusive.

     (e) Suspension of Contract. If at any time in the opinion of the City of Chico, the Contractor has failed to
supply an adequate working force, or material of proper quality, or has failed in any other respect to prosecute the
work with the diligence and force specified and intended in and by the terms of the contract, notice thereof in
writing will be served upon him, and should he neglect or refuse to provide means for a satisfactory compliance
with the contract, as directed by the Engineer, within the time specified in such notice, the City Council in any such
case shall have the power to suspend the operation of the contract. Upon receiving notice of such suspension, the
Contractor shall discontinue said work, or such parts of it as the City of Chico may designate.

        Upon such suspension, the Contractor's control shall terminate, and thereupon, the City of Chico or its
duly authorized representative may take possession of all or any part of the Contractor's materials, tools,
equipment, and appliances upon the premises, and use the same for the purpose of completing said contract, and
hire such force and buy or rent such additional materials and supplies at the Contractor's expense as may be
necessary for the proper conduct of the work and for the completion thereof; or may employ other parties to carry
the contract to completion, employ the necessary workmen, substitute other machinery or materials, and purchase
the materials contracted for, in such manner as the City of Chico may deem proper; or the City of Chico may annul
and cancel the contract and relet the work or any part thereof.

         Any excess of cost arising therefrom over and above the contract price will be charged against the
Contractor and his sureties, who will be liable therefor. In the event of such suspension, all money due the
Contractor or retained under the terms of this contract shall be forfeited to the City of Chico, but such forfeiture will
not release the Contractor or his sureties from liability or failure to fulfill the contract. The Contractor and his
sureties will be credited with the amount of money so forfeited toward any excess of cost over and above the
contract price, arising from the suspension of the operations of the contract and the completion of the work by the
City of Chico as provided above, and the Contractor will be so credited with any surplus remaining after all just
claims for such completion have been paid. In the determination of the question whether there has been any
such non-compliance with the contract as to warrant the suspension or annulment thereof, the decision of the City
of Chico shall be binding on all parties to the contract.

     (f) Right of Way. The right of way for the work to be constructed will be provided by the City. The Contractor
shall make his own arrangements, and pay all expenses for additional area required by him outside of the limits of
right of way, unless otherwise provided in the Special Provisions.

                                             H. MEASUREMENT AND PAYMENT

    (a) Extra and Force Account Work. Extra work as hereinbefore defined, when ordered and accepted, shall be
paid for under a written work order in accordance with the terms therein provided. Payment for extra work will be
made at the unit price or lump sum previously agreed upon by the Contractor and the Engineer; or by force
account.

         If the work is done on force account, the Contractor shall receive the actual cost of all materials furnished
by him as shown by his paid vouchers, plus fifteen percent (15%), and for all labor, equipment and terms that are
necessary, he shall receive the current prices in the locality, which shall have been previously determined and
agreed to in writing by the engineer and by the Contractor, plus fifteen percent (15%) provided, however, that the
City of Chico reserves the right to furnish such materials required as it deems expedient, and the Contractor shall
have no claims for profit on the cost of such materials. The price paid for labor shall include any compensation
insurance paid by the Contractor.

R:\FORMS\CAFORMS\DPW STD\Provisions\Gen Prevailing $1-2M.wpd
CA Std Form 08/06/09                                           GP8
        All extra work and force account shall be adjusted daily upon report sheets, prepared by the Engineer,
furnished to the Contractor and signed by both parties, which daily reports shall thereafter be considered the true
record of extra work or force account work done.

       (b) Progress Payment. The City of Chico shall, once in each month, cause an estimate in writing to be made
by the City Engineer of the total amount of work done and the acceptable materials furnished and delivered by the
Contractor on the ground and not used, to the time of such estimate, and the value thereof. The City of Chico
shall retain ten percent (10%) of such estimated value of the work done and fifty percent (50%) of the value of the
materials so estimated to have been furnished and delivered and unused as aforesaid as part security for the
fulfillment of the contract by the Contractor, and shall monthly pay to the Contractor, while carrying on the work,
the balance not retained as aforesaid, after deducting therefrom all previous payments and all sums to be kept or
retained under the provisions of the contract. No such estimate or payment shall be required to be made when, in
the judgment of the City Engineer, the work is not proceeding in accordance with the provisions of the contract, or
when in his judgment, the total value of the work done since the last estimate amounts to less than three hundred
dollars ($300).

         The Contractor may elect to receive 100 percent of payments due under the contract from time to time,
without retention of any portion of the payment by the City of Chico, by depositing securities of equivalent value
with the City in accordance with the provisions of Section 4590 of the Government Code. Such securities, if
deposited by the Contractor, shall be valued by the City, whose decision on valuation of the securities shall be
final.

    (c) Final Payment. The Engineer shall, after the completion of the contract, make a final estimate of the
amount of work done thereunder, and the value of such work and file a Notice of Completion in the County
Recorder's Office; and the City of Chico shall pay the entire sum as found to be due after deducting therefrom all
previous payments and all amounts to be retained under the provisions of the contract. All prior partial estimates
and payments shall be subject to correction in the final estimate and payment. The final payment shall not be due
and payable until the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date of recording of the Notice of Completion in the
County Recorder's Office.

        It is mutually agreed between the parties to the contract that no certificate given or payments made under
the contract, except the final certificate or final payment, shall be conclusive evidence of the performance of the
contract, either wholly or in part, against any claim of the party of the first part, and no payment shall be construed
to be an acceptance of any defective work or improper materials.

        And the Contractor further agrees that the payment of the final amount due under the contract, and the
adjustment and payment for any work done in accordance with any alterations of the same, shall release the City
of Chico, the City Council and the Engineer from any and all claims or liability on account of work performed under
the contract or any alteration thereof.

     (d) Complete and Operable Facility. Regardless of any and all specific details in the plans, specifications and
contract documents, a complete and operable facility is contemplated and required. All questions, clarifications,
comments, reservations and other indeterminate factors affecting his execution of the work will be raised by the
Contractor prior to his submittal of his bid to do the work and submittal of such bid will be accepted as evidence
that he has done so.

         All bid items include all labor, materials, tools, transportation, equipment, services and facilities required
for the complete, proper and substantial installation of all work shown on the plans and outlined in these
specifications. The work shall include all materials, appliances and apparatus not specifically mentioned herein or
noted on the plans, but which are necessary to make a complete working installation of systems shown on the
plans or described herein.

       Items of work shown on the Plans or required in order to complete the work shown on the Plans but for
which no separate Bid Item is shown shall be included in the bid price for various items shown and no separate
payment therefore shall be made.

                                                 (State Project Number)


TO THE CITY OF CHICO

        The undersigned declares that he/she has carefully examined the location of the proposed work, that

he/she has examined the contract plans and specifications, and read the accompanying General and Special

Provisions, and hereby proposed to furnish all materials and do all the work required to complete the said work in

accordance with said contract plans, if any, and specifications, and General and Special Provisions, for the unit

prices or lump sum set forth in the following attached schedules.

        The undersigned further agrees that in case of default in executing the required contract, with necessary

bonds within ten (10) days, not including Sunday, after having received notice that the contract is ready for

signature, the proceeds of the Bidder's guaranty accompanying his or her bid shall become the property of the

CITY OF CHICO.

        In case of discrepancy between the unit price and the total set forth for a unit basis item, the unit price shall

prevail, except as provided in (a) or (b), as follows:

        (a) If the amount set forth as a unit price is unreadable or otherwise unclear, or is omitted, or is the same

        as the amount as the entry in the item total column, then the amount set forth in the item total column for

        the item shall prevail and shall be divided by the estimated quantity for the item and the price thus obtained

        shall be the unit price:

        (b) (Decimal Errors) If the product of the entered unit price and the estimated quantity is exactly off by a

        factor of ten, one hundred, etc., or one-tenth, or one-hundredth, etc. from the entered total, the discrepancy

        will be resolved by using the entered unit price or item total, whichever most closely approximates

        percentagewise the unit price or item total in the Department’s Final Estimate of cost.

        If both the unit price and the item total are unreadable or otherwise unclear, or are omitted, the bid may be

deemed irregular. Likewise if the item total for a lump sum item is unreadable or otherwise unclear, or is omitted,

the bid may be deemed irregular unless the project being bid has only a single item and a clear, readable total bid

                                                           PF-1
is provided.

         Symbols such as commas and dollar signs will be ignored and have no mathematical significance in

establishing any unit price or item total or lump sums. Written unit prices, item totals and lump sums will be

interpreted according to the number of digits and, if applicable, decimal placement. Cents symbols also have no

significance in establishing any unit price or item total since all such figures are assumed to be expressed in dollars

and/or decimal fractions of a dollar. Bids on lump sum items shall be item totals only; if any unit price for a lump

sum item is included in a bid and it differs from the item total, the items total shall prevail.

         The foregoing provisions for the resolution of specific irregularities cannot be so comprehensive as to cover

every omission, inconsistency, error or other irregularity which may occur in a bid. Any situation not specifically

provided for will be determined in the discretion of the Department, and such discretion will be exercised in the

manner deemed by the Department to best protect the public interest in the prompt and economical completion of

the work. The decision of the Department respecting the amount of a bid, or the existence or treatment of an

irregularity in a bid shall be final.
