CONTRACT                                                                              005000 - 25
12.    Permits and Licenses: The Contractor shall have full responsibility for identifying and
obtaining prior to the start of work under this Contract, and for maintaining throughout the term of
this Contract, any governmental permits or licenses which may be requested in order to carry out the
work.


13.     Inspection of Work: The County representatives shall have the right to enter freely and
inspect fully the work site to insure full compliance with this Contract and the Bidding Documents,
so long as such inspection does not interfere unreasonably with the Contractor's prosecution of the
work. The Contractor shall be responsible for keeping a competent and reliable supervisor on the
Work Site at all times during which work under this Contract is being performed. In the event the
Contractor is absent from the Work Site, the superintendent shall stand in the place of the Contractor
as his authorized representative and any notices or directions given by the County or its authorized
representatives to the superintendent which are pertinent to this Contract shall be binding on the
Contractor as if given to it.


14.    Termination:

       a. The provisions of paragraph 2 of this Contract notwithstanding, the County reserves the
          right to terminate work under this Contract if funds are not appropriated, budgeted, or
          otherwise made available for this Contract for any years subsequent to the current fiscal
          year. If the County terminates the Contract for this reason, the County and the Contractor
          shall be released from all obligations to perform work and make payments hereunder,
          except that the County shall be required to make payment for work which has been
          performed by the Contractor prior to the effective date of termination under this
          provision; and, conversely, the Contractor shall be required to complete any work for
          which the County has made payment prior to the effective termination date. Termination
          by the County under this provision shall be effective seven (7) days after the County
          provides notice to the Contractor pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 15, below.


       b.      If the Contractor defaults or persistently fails or neglects to carry out the work in
               accordance with the contract or Bid Documents, or fails to perform any provision of
               the Contract, the County, effective after seven (7) days' written notice to the
               Contractor pursuant to the provisions of paragraph 15, below, and without prejudice
               to any other remedy the County may have, may make good any resulting deficiencies
               in the work and may deduct the cost thereof from any payment then or thereafter due
               to the Contractor; or, at its option, the County may terminate the Contract upon the
               notice required hereunder, and, if the County deems appropriate, may take possession
               of the Work Site and of all materials, tools, and construction equipment and
               machinery located thereon and owned by the Contractor, and may finish the work by
               whatever method it deems expedient. If the unpaid balance outstanding for any work
               which has been performed adequately by the Contractor, exceeds the expense to the
               County of finishing or remedying work under this provision, the County shall pay

CONTRACT                                                                              005000 - 26
                    such excess to the Contractor, but if such expense, whatever its amount, if
                    reasonable, exceeds such unpaid balance, the Contractor shall pay the difference to
                    the County, and shall be liable for any such excess which the Contractor or his surety
                    is unable or unwilling to pay to the County.

   c.    The preceding provisions of this paragraph notwithstanding, performance of work under this Contract may be suspended or terminated,
   either in whole or in part, by the County, for any reason, whenever the County determines that such termination or suspension is in the best
   interests of the County. Such suspension or termination shall be effective after seven (7) days' written notice to the Contractor pursuant to the
   provisions of paragraph 15, below, unless a shorter effective period is specified pursuant to subparagraph d., below. The notice required for
   this purpose shall state the reasons for, and extent and duration of, such suspension or termination and the responsive action to be reasonably
   required by the County of the Contractor. Upon the effective date of such suspension or termination, the Contractor shall take the responsive
   action specified in the Notice, including, if the Notice so specifies, the cancellation or postponement of all outstanding commitments
   concerning the work. The Contractor shall be obligated to take any reasonably required responsive action as diligently and cost effectively as
   possible. The Contractor shall submit to the County a written claim for all outstanding amounts which the County owes the Contractor under
   the Contract, as soon as possible after the County exercises its right to take action under this provision.




        d.          In the event of any emergency or urgent situation related to the work being performed
                    under this Contract, the County, in its discretion, may shorten the effective notice
                    periods specified in subparagraphs a. through c. above. If the County exercises this
                    discretion it shall provide the required notice to the Contractor or his authorized
                    representative by hand-delivery, and shall clearly specify in the notice the effective
                    date of the suspension or termination.
        e.          In the event the County exercises any of the termination rights specified in
                    subparagraphs a. through d. above, this Contract shall cease to be of any further force
                    and effect, with the exception of all contract remedies which are specified herein and
                    may otherwise be available to the parties under law, and with the exception of any
                    rights or liabilities of these parties which may survive by virtue of paragraphs 6
                    through 14 of this Contract.


15.     Notices: For purposes of the notices required to be provided under paragraphs 10 and 14,
above, all such notices shall be in writing, and shall be either sent by Certified US Mail, return
receipt requested, or hand-delivered to the following representatives of the parties at the following

                                                                   P.O. Box 471

commence to run on the day after the postmarked date of mailing.




CONTRACT                                                                                                                     005000 - 27
16.     Acceptance and Final Payment: Within ten days after the Contractor's declaration of
completion of the work, the County will make a final inspection thereof to determine whether the
work has been completed in accordance with the contract. If any list of deficiencies results from
such final inspection, the Contractor shall promptly rectify all items appearing thereon, before final
payment will be made. When the owner indicates acceptance of the work, the Contractor may
requisition final payment, including retainage, on account of the purchase order contract price.



17.    Guaranty and Warranties:

       a.      The Contractor shall promptly correct any Work rejected by the County as defective
               or as failing to conform to the Contract Documents whether observed before or after
               Substantial Completion and whether or not fabricated, installed or completed, and
               shall correct any Work found to be defective or nonconforming within a period of
               one year from the Date of Substantial Completion of the Contract or within such
               longer period of time as may be prescribed by law or by the terms of any applicable
               special warranty required by the Contract Documents. The provisions of this Article
               apply to Work done by Subcontractors or Support Services as well as to Work done
               by direct employees of the Contractor. Corrections shall be made at no expense to
               the County.

       b.      The Contractor shall furnish the County with all guarantees and warranties required
               under the specifications. Unless specifically stated in the specifications, such
               warranties and guarantees shall run from the date of installation, not from the date of
               purchase by the Contractor. Unless stated elsewhere in the Specifications, warranties
               and guarantees shall be for one (1) year.


18.     Post-Completion: Final payment made to the Contractor on account of the work shall not
operate to relieve the Contractor of responsibility for faulty material or workmanship, and unless
otherwise provided, the Contractor shall remedy any defect due thereto and pay for any damages
resultant therefrom which shall appear within one (1) year from the date of the final acceptance of
the work.


19.     Benefit to Successors and Assigns: This Contract, during its term as specified herein, shall
inure and benefit and shall be binding upon the successors, heirs, and assigns of the parties hereto.


20.    Severability: Any provision of this contract which may be rendered null and void shall not
invalidate the remainder of this Contract to the extent the Contract is capable of execution.



CONTRACT                                                                              005000 - 28
21.    This Contract shall be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado and shall be effective
upon execution by both parties. Any litigation between these parties involving this contract shall be
pursued in the District Court in Boulder County, Colorado.



22.     Independent Contractor. The Parties recognize and agree that the Contractor is an
independent contractor for all purposes, both legal and practical, in performing services under this
Agreement, and that the Contractor and its agents and employees are not agents or employees of
Boulder County for any purpose. As an independent contractor, the Contractor shall be responsible
for employing and directing such personnel and agents as it requires to perform the services
purchased hereunder, shall exercise complete authority over its personnel and agents, and shall be
fully responsible for their actions.

        Contractor acknowledges that it is not entitled to unemployment insurance benefits nor
worker's compensation benefits from Boulder County, its elected officials, agents, or any program
administered or funded by Boulder County. Contractor shall be entitled to unemployment insurance
or worker's compensation insurance only if unemployment compensation coverage or worker's
compensation coverage is provided by Contractor, or some other entity that is not a party to this
contract. Contractor is obligated to pay federal and state income tax on any monies earned pursuant
to the contract relationship.


23.     Third-Party Beneficiary. The enforcement of the terms and conditions of this contract and all
rights of action relating to such enforcement, shall be strictly reserved to the County and the
Contractor, and nothing contained in this contract shall give or allow any claim or right of action
whatsoever by any other or third person. It is the express intent of the parties to this contract that any
other person receiving services or benefits under this contract shall be deemed an incidental
beneficiary only.


24.     Prohibitions on Public Contract for Services: Pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute (C.R.S.),
§ 8-17.5-101, et. seq., as amended 5/13/08, the Contractor shall meet the following requirements
prior to signing this Agreement (public contract for service) and for the duration thereof:

        a.      The Contractor shall certify participation in the E-Verify Program (the electronic employment
                verification program that is authorized in 8 U.S.C. § 1324a and jointly administered by the United
                States Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration, or its successor
                program) or the Department Program (the employment verification program established by the
                Colorado Department of Labor and Employment pursuant to C.R.S. § 8-17.5-102(5)) on the attached
                certification.

        b.      The Contractor shall not knowingly employ or contract with an illegal alien to perform work under this
                public contract for services.




CONTRACT                                                                                           005000 - 29
         c.    The Contractor shall not enter into a contract with a subcontractor that fails to certify to the Contractor
               that the subcontractor shall not knowingly employ or contract with an illegal alien to perform work
               under this public contract for services.


    d. At the time of signing this public contract for services, the Contractor has confirmed the employment eligibility
                 of all employees who are newly hired for employment to perform work under this public contract for
                 services through participation in either the E-Verify Program or the Department Program.


    e.         The Contractor shall not use either the E-Verify Program or the Department Program procedures to
               undertake pre-employment screening of job applicants while this public contract for services is being
               performed.


    f.         If Contractor obtains actual knowledge that a subcontractor performing work under this public contract
               for services knowingly employs or contracts with an illegal alien, the Contractor shall: notify the
               subcontractor and the County within three days that the Contractor has actual knowledge that the
               subcontractor is employing or contracting with an illegal alien; and terminate the subcontract with the
               subcontractor if within three days of receiving the notice required pursuant to the previous paragraph,
               the subcontractor does not stop employing or contracting with the illegal alien; except that the
               contractor shall not terminate the contract with the subcontractor if during such three days the
               subcontractor provides information to establish that the subcontractor has not knowingly employed or
               contracted with an illegal alien.


    g.         Contractor shall comply with any reasonable requests by the Department of Labor and Employment
               (the Department) made in the course of an investigation that the Department is undertaking pursuant to
               the authority established in C.R.S. § 8-17.5-102(5).


    h.         If Contractor violates any provisions of this Section of this Agreement, the County may terminate this
               Agreement for breach of contract. If the Agreement is so terminated, the Contractor shall be liable for
               actual and consequential damages to the County.




         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have signed this Contract.

                                GENERAL CONDITIONS TO
                 BOULDER COUNTY BUILDING CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT
                COURTHOUSE PLAZA FLAGSTONE PAVING REPAIR PROJECT
     ______________________________________________________________________________


A.      COUNTY'S (OWNER'S) RESPONSIBILITIES

        1.    Information on services under the control of the County (hereinafter referred to also as the
              Owner) shall be furnished by the County with reasonable promptness to avoid delay in the
              orderly progress of the Work.

        2.    Based on the observations of the County's Representative and an evaluation of the
              Contractor's Applications for Payment, the County will determine the amounts owing to the
              Contractor and will issue Certificates for Payment in accordance with the General
              Conditions on Progress Payments and Final Payments.

        3.    The Owner's Representative will be the interpreter of the requirements of the Contract
              Documents. He will make decisions on all claims, disputes or other matters in question
              between the Contractor and the Owner but he will not be liable for the results of any
              interpretation or decision rendered in good faith. Decisions of the Architect will be final, if
              consistent with the intent of the Contract Documents.

        4.    The Owner's Representative will have authority to reject Work which does not conform to
              the Contract Documents.

        5.    The Owner's Representative will have the authority to contact any regulatory agency
              concerning any alleged regulatory violation and to secure regulatory ruling or suspend work
              until such ruling is obtained. Such delays if confirmed to be an infraction or variance may
              give rise to charges against the Contractor by the County for delay of timely completion of
              contract work.

        6.    The Owner's Representative will review and approve or take other appropriate action upon
              the Contractor's submittals, such as Shop Drawings, Product Data, and Samples, but only
              for conformance with the design concept of the Work and with the information given in the
              Contract Documents.


B.      CONTRACTOR'S RESPONSIBILITIES

        1.    The Contractor shall supervise and direct the Work, using his best skill and attention and he
              shall be solely responsible for all construction means, methods, techniques, sequences and
              procedures and for coordinating all portions of the Work under the Contract.

        2.    Unless otherwise specifically provided in the Contract Documents, the Contractor shall
              provide and pay for all labor, materials, equipment, tools, construction equipment and
              machinery, transportation, and other facilities and services necessary for the proper

GENERAL CONDITIONS                                                                        007200 - 34
           execution and completion of the Work whether or not incorporated or to be incorporated in
           the Work.

     3.    The Contractor shall at all times enforce strict discipline and good order among his
           employees and shall not employ on the Work any unfit person or anyone not skilled in the
           task assigned to him.

     4.    The Contractor warrants to the County that all materials and equipment incorporated in the
           Work will be new unless otherwise specified, and that all Work will be of good quality, free
           from faults and defects and in conformance with the Contract Documents. All Work not
           conforming to these requirements may be considered defective.

GENERAL CONDITIONS                                                                  007200 - 38

          compensation due under this contract are subject to the provisions of Section 24-91-101, et.
          seq. CRS. If this contract exceeds Eighty Thousand Dollars ($80,000), partial payments

          work required by the contract has been performed. After fifty percent (50%) of the work
          has been performed, the County shall pay amounts which becomes due as work is
          completed, while continuing to hold amounts already retained, if, in the opinion of the
          County, satisfactory progress is being made. The withheld percentage of the contract price
          of any such work, improvement, or construction shall be retained until the contract is
          completed satisfactorily and finally accepted by the public entity. If the public entity finds
          that satisfactory progress is being made in all phases of the contract, it may, upon written
          request by the Contractor, authorize payment from the withheld percentage. Before such
          payment is made, the public entity shall determine that satisfactory and substantial reasons
          exist for the payment and shall require written approval from any surety furnishing bonds
          for the contract work. The Contractor shall make partial payments of the amount due to
          each his subcontractors in the same manner as the public entity is required to pay the

          under his contract with the Contractor.

          amounts owing the contractor, including the withheld percentage, shall be applied: First,
          toward the cost of completion of the contract; second, toward performance of the public
          entity's withholding requirement set forth in section 38-26-107, C.R.S.; third, to the surety

          expense in completing the contract work or made payments pursuant to section 38-26-106,
          C.R.S.; then, to the contractor. Such retained percentage as may be due any contractor shall
          be due and payable as provided by section 38-26-107,C.R.S.

             inspection of the Work to determine the status of completion.

     3.      If OWNER does not consider the Work substantially complete, OWNER will notify
             CONTRACTOR in writing giving the reasons therefore.
     4.      If OWNER considers the Work substantially complete, OWNER will prepare and deliver to
             CONTRACTOR a tentative certificate of Substantial Completion which shall fix the date
             of Substantial Completion. There shall be attached to the certificate a tentative list of items

                     OWNER'S aforesaid recommendation will be binding on OWNER and
                     CONTRACTOR until final payment.

       Contract Documents. See specifications and drawings for base bid scope of work.

       Item #1 –FLAGSTONE PAVING

       The water main for Courthouse was repaired recently, which required a portion of the Flagstone Plaza
       to be removed to expose the pipe work. The area that was deconstructed during this repair has been
       backfilled and a new 5” concrete bed poured and is now ready for Flagstone Paving.

       The Masonry Work consists of all labor and materials required for the installation of new Flagstone
       Paving to patch the area that was removed or damaged during the pipe repair.
       For Bidding purposes include a 6’ area outside of the Patch area to cover any damaged pavers from
       heavy equipment. Flagstone must be toothed into existing layout. Special care must be taken with
       expansion joints at various locations.
       After the Flagstone installation a Muriatic acid cleanup is required.
       Water wastes of any kind must be captured so that it does not drain out to the pedestrian Pearl Street
       Mall or get into surrounding storm sewers.

       Item #2 –REPOINTING OF EXISTING FLAGSTONE PAVING

       Over time the mortar joints in the existing flagstone plaza paving have deteriorated and are in
       various stages of disrepair.
       The existing mortar joints which are failing must be removed down to the bedding material
       cleaned completely and replaced with a modified polymer mortar compound.
       After the Flagstone installation a Muriatic acid cleanup is required.
       Water wastes of any kind must be captured so that it does not drain out to the pedestrian Pearl Street
       Mall or get into surrounding storm sewers. This portion of the project will be executed on a
       time and material basis which will be done at a later date; however, a lump sum total
       cost is required for this Bid.
