 Category E - Example 1
• The value of all Structure work for the project is
  computed as follows:
  –   Retaining Wall (LS)                $2,769,000.00
  –   Fabricated Structural Steel       ($ 872,467.20)

  – Total Value                        $2,031,532.80
• The Total Value of all Structure work exceeds
  $1,000,000
  – Payments made under the above items, excluding the
    Fab Steel component item, are subject to price
    adjustment under Category E.
                                             www.dot.state.pa.us

 – If Class 1 Excavation operation is the first of
   these items to be initiated and work begins
   in August 2012:
   • Initial Adjustment Quarter: August thru October
     2012
   • New Adjustment Quarters would begin in
     November 2012, February 2013, May 2013, etc.

                                       www.dot.state.pa.us
