7.   BID AWARD:
     7.1. DOT/PF is required by law to award “to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder whose bid conforms
          in all MATERIAL respects to the requirements and criteria set out in the invitation to bid.” AS 36.30.170.
     7.2. All specifications in this ITB are important and bidders should carefully address each item. Deviation
          from a specification MAY result in rejection of a bid at the discretion of the Contracting Officer if the
          deviation is material. A material deviation is one that is significantly different from an essential aspect of
          a specification.
     7.3. The Contracting Officer may be justified in accepting a non-material deviation—it will be determined
          upon the facts, circumstances, and the proposal in the bid. If a bid deviation has a negligible effect on
          price, quality, performance, delivery or contract conditions, it is not material and may be waived or
          corrected by the Contracting Officer. The State reserves the right to waive minor informalities or
          technical defects, which are not material, when such waiver is in the best interest of the State.
     7.4. Nothing in this section shall be construed as depriving the State of its discretion in the matter of
          determining the lowest responsible bidder.
8.   BID FORMAT:
     8.1. NEW, FOR THIS ITB (As of 1/23/01): Bid submitted must contain, as a minimum:
         8.1.1.   SECTION III – SPECIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
         8.1.2.   SECTION IV – OFFER AND CONTRACT AWARD.
         8.1.3.   SECTION V – BID PRICE SCHEDULE.
         8.1.4.   SECTION VI – ASTERISKED (*) ITEM PAGES ONLY (AND/OR) LETTER OF
                  CLARIFICATION ADDRESSING ASTERISKED (*) ITEMS.
         8.1.5.   All pertinent amendments.
         8.1.6.   Failure to return all of the pages listed above will cause your bid to be rejected.
     8.2. Bids must conform to the requirements of the Invitation to Bid or Request for Proposal. All necessary
          attachments (bid bonds, Alaska business license, references, descriptive literature, etc.) must be submitted
          with the bid and in the required format. Failure to comply with all requirements may result in a non-
          responsive bid.
     8.3. Facsimile transmitted bids ARE NOT ACCEPTED.

9.   SIGNATURE ON BID: AN OFFICIAL OF THE BIDDING ORGANIZATION authorized to bind the bidder
     to its provisions MUST SIGN THE BID IN INK. Signature certifies that the bidder has read and fully
     understands and agrees to all bid specifications, terms and conditions.
10. PRODUCT LITERATURE:
     10.1. Product brochures, descriptive literature and other supporting documentation may be required in some
           solicitations. Descriptive literature is for the purpose of providing a reference to the product offered.
           While it is not practicable to require documentation to support every single item of a specification, it is
           sometimes necessary to require the bidder to provide product literature that will help the Contracting
           officer to determine the bidder's compliance with important specifications. Attached literature will not be
           considered as a counter offer.
     10.2. Requirements for product literature will vary from bid to bid. Section I - Overview and Instructions to
           Bidders will contain the requirements for a particular bid. Certain specification items may be marked with
           an asterisk (*) indicating that descriptive literature or supporting documentation (such as a letter of
           clarification) will be required.
     10.3. When product literature is required by the ITB, please provide a minimum of one (1) complete set to aid
           in bid review and evaluation.
     10.4. Failure to provide product literature or brochures when required WILL result in your bid being
           deemed non-responsive.
     10.5. A bidder's signature on the contract offer and award is taken as a promise to comply with the ITB
           specifications. In case of a difference between the literature and the specifications, the specifications will
           govern.
     10.6. Major discrepancies between specifications and product brochure literature should be explained in a letter
           of clarification or your bid may be deemed non-responsive.
     10.7. The State does not honor disclaimer statements often evident in manufacturer's published specification
           sheets or brochures. Such disclaimers will not release the successful bidder from providing the specified
           item, at the time of acceptance by the State.
11. CLARIFICATION OF OFFER:
     11.1. A letter of clarification is required to explain any major deviations from terms, conditions, or
           specifications of this ITB. Offers exceeding ITB specifications are regarded as deviations, which may
           require a letter of clarification if they are major.
     11.2. Letters of Clarification are to be on company (Bidder's) letterhead and be signed. The only information in
           the Letters of Clarification should be the explanation(s) of major deviation(s) and/or responses to
           asterisked (*) items. Asterisked (*) item explanations should refer to a particular specification and
           specification item, number.
     11.3. In order to prevent technical errors, following each asterisked is space that may be used to address all of
           the asterisked items. It is mandatory that a letter of clarification or the space behind the asterisked items
           be used to supply the required information.
     11.4. When using a letter of clarification, or the space provided within the ITB, to address an asterisked (*)
           item, the statement must indicate specifically what is being provided. Do not include statements such as
           "Complies To Spec" or "Meets or Exceeds Specifications". This will be considered a non-responsive bid.
     11.5. Letters of disclosure and clarification must be made part of the sealed bid and must be received before bid
           opening.
12. INDEPENDENT VERIFICATION: The State reserves the right to seek independent verification of apparent
    discrepancies or ambiguities in a bid.
13. DELIVERY: Delivery time must be shown in number of calendar days "After Receipt of Order" (ARO)
    unless otherwise specified in the ITB.




                               Section I – Overview and Instructions to Bidders
             SEF-850 – Motor Graders, Wheel Loaders, and Crawler Dozers, for Alaska Rural Airports
                                                 Page 3 of 4
14. PRODUCT IDENTIFICATION: Bidders must clearly identify all products bid. Brand name and model or
    number must be shown for the prime unit as well as attachments where applicable. The State reserves the right
    to reject any bid when the product information submitted with the bid is incomplete and/or is not easily
    ascertainable from the bid documents or through independent verification.
15. PRODUCT EQUIVALENT SUBSTITUTION: Bidders may submit bids for substantially equivalent
    products unless the Invitation to Bid provides that a specific brand is necessary because of compatibility
    requirements. In those instances where the ITB specifies "a name brand or State approved equivalent", bidders
    must request approval of a product equivalent substitution NO LATER THAN the formal workshop meeting.
    A written response will be provided by the Contracting officer within five (5) working days after the formal
    workshop. Any requests for product equivalent substitution after the Formal Workshop Meeting, in all
    likelihood, will not be considered.
16. BID MODIFICATION:
    16.1. Modifications or erasures made before bid submission should be initialed in ink by the person signing the
          bid. A bid may be rejected if it contains a material alteration or erasure which is not initialed by the signer
          of the bid and the intent of the bidder is not reasonably ascertainable from the bid as submitted.
    16.2. Bids, once submitted, may be modified in writing before the time and date set for bid opening. Any
          modifications shall be prepared on company letterhead, signed by an authorized representative, and state
          that the new document supersedes or modifies the prior bid. Modification must be submitted in a sealed
          envelope clearly marked "Bid Modification" and identifying the bid number and closing date and time.
          Bidders may not modify bids after bid opening time.
17. BID WITHDRAWALS: Bids may be withdrawn in writing on company letterhead signed by an authorized
    representative and received by the Procurement Office prior to bid closing time. Bids may also be withdrawn
    in person before bid opening time upon presentation of appropriate identification.
18. NON-RESPONSIVE BIDS:
    18.1. Bids will be considered non-responsive and shall be rejected for the following:
    18.2. Failure to sign the bid.
    18.3. Failure to return all pages (as listed in the Bid Format paragraph 8.0 above) of the bid document and
          any/all pertinent amendments.

    Disabilities Act of 1990 and the regulations issued thereunder by the federal government.

1.0   ACCESSORIES: When accessories are supplied, they must be certified to be compatible with the rest of the
      equipment. Certification will be written evidence satisfactory to the State that the accessories are compatible.
      The bidders failure to supply this evidence within the time required by the State will cause the State to
      consider the bid non-responsive and reject the bid.
2.0   ALASKA VENDOR AND PRODUCT PREFERENCES: NOT APPLICABLE TO THIS ITB
3.0   ALTERATIONS: The contractor must obtain the written approval from the contracting officer prior to
      making any alterations to the specifications contained in this ITB. The State will not pay for alterations that

      prior written approval of the Contracting officer.
5.0   ANNOTATED LITERATURE: Bidders must annotate their product literature to identify for the State the
      location of the supporting information regarding each product specification set out in this ITB. A bidder's
      failure to comply with this clause, within the time set by the State, will cause the State to consider the offer

6.0   ASSIGNMENT: A bidder may not assign any portion of a contract unless authorized in advance and in
      writing by the Contracting officer.
7.0   AUTHORITY: This solicitation is written in accordance with Alaska statutes AS 36.30 and 2 AAC 12.

      are used to specify the type and quality of the goods desired, bidders must clearly indicate the brand names
      and model numbers they intend to provide. The bidder’s failure to identify the brand and model offered will
      cause the State to consider the offer nonresponsive and reject the bid.
10.0 COMPLIANCE WITH ALL GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS: The bidder must comply with all
      applicable federal, state, and borough regulations, codes, and laws, and pay all applicable federal, state, and
      borough taxes, and is liable for all required insurance, licenses, permits, and bonds. Failure to comply with

      Damages or costs resulting from noncompliance shall be the sole responsibility of the bidder.
11.0 CONFLICT OF INTEREST: A person employed by the State of Alaska may not seek to acquire, be a
      party to, or possess a financial interest in, this contract if they are an employee of the administrative unit that

      contract.
12.0 DEFAULT: In case of bidder default, the State may procure the goods or services from another source and
      hold the bidder responsible for any resulting excess costs and may seek other remedies under law or equity.

      the discontinued item.
15.0 DISPUTES: Any disputes arising out of this solicitation shall be resolved under the laws of Alaska. An
      appeal or any original action to enforce any provision of this agreement must be in the superior court for the
      First Judicial District of Alaska.
16.0 FIRM, UNQUALIFIED AND UNCONDITIONAL OFFER: Bidders must provide enough information
      with their bid to constitute a definite, firm, unqualified and unconditional offer. To be responsive a bid must

      terms are those, which are clearly identified in the ITB and which, for reasons of policy, must be complied
      with at risk of bid rejection for nonresponsiveness.
17.0 FORCE MAJEURE (Impossibility to perform): Neither party to this contract shall be held responsible
      for delay or default caused by acts of God and/or war, which is beyond that party's reasonable control. The
      State may terminate this contract upon written notice after determining such delay or default will reasonably
      prevent successful performance of the contract.
18.0 INDEMNIFICATION: The Contractor shall indemnify, hold harmless, and defend the contracting agency
      from and against any claim of, or liability for error, omission or negligent act of the Contractor under this
      agreement. The Contractor shall not be required to indemnify the contracting agency for a claim of, or
      liability for, the independent negligence of the contracting agency. If there is a claim of, or liability for, the
      joint negligent error or omission of the Contractor and the independent negligence of the Contracting
      agency, the indemnification and hold harmless obligation shall be apportioned on a comparative fault basis.
      “Contractor” and “Contracting agency”, as used within this and the following article, include the employees,
      agents and other contractors who are directly responsible, respectively, to each. The term “independent
      negligence” is negligence other than in the Contracting agency’s selection, administration, monitoring, or
      controlling of the Contractor and in approving or accepting the Contractor’s work.
19.0 INSPECTIONS: Goods furnished under this contract are subject to inspection and test by the State at times
      and places determined by the State. If the State finds goods furnished to be incomplete or not in compliance
      with bid specifications, the State may reject the goods and require bidder to either correct them without
      charge or deliver them at a reduced price, which is equitable under the circumstances. If bidder is unable or
      refuses to correct such goods within a time deemed reasonable by the State, the State may cancel the order in
      whole or in part. Nothing in this paragraph shall adversely affect the State's rights as buyer, including all
      remedies and rights granted by Alaska statutes.

      under AS 21.
      20.1      Proof of insurance is required for the following:

21.0 ITEM UPGRADES: The State reserves the right to accept upgrades to models on the basic contract when
      the upgrades improve the way the equipment operates or improve the accuracy of the equipment. Such

      22.2      The State reserves the right to reject any and all bids, to waive non-material (minor) deviations from
                the specifications, and to waive any informality in bids received, whenever such rejection or waiver
                is reasonable and in the best interest of the State.
      22.3      The State reserves the right to make an award by line item, by lot, by region, or by total proposal,
                whichever is in the best interest of the State.
      22.4      A Notice of Intent to Award (ITA) will be issued for all solicitations in accordance with regulations.
                The notice of intent to award does not constitute a formal award of a contract. Formal award is

      been used for any purpose, other than display (not demonstration), prior to its sale to the State. The State
      will not accept remanufactured, used or reconditioned equipment. It is the contractor’s responsibility to
      ensure that each piece of equipment delivered to the State complies with this requirement. A contract’s
      failure to comply with this requirement will cause the State to seek remedies under breach of contract.

      •   the supplies or services being procured are no longer required;
      •   ambiguous or otherwise inadequate specifications were part of the solicitation;
      •   the solicitation did not provide for consideration of all factors of significance to the State;
      •   prices exceed available money and it would not be appropriate to adjust quantities to accommodate
          available money;
      •   all otherwise acceptable bids or proposals received are at unacceptable prices;
      •   there is reason to believe that the bids or proposals may not have been independently arrived at in open

33.0 SUCCESSORS IN INTEREST: This contract shall be binding upon successors and assigns.
34.0 SUITABLE MATERIALS: All materials, supplies or equipment offered by a bidder shall be new, unused,
       of recent manufacture, and suitable for the manufacturer's intended purpose unless the specifications allow
       for used, rebuilt or remanufactured equipment.
35.0 SUPPORTING INFORMATION:
       35.1      The State strongly desires that bidders submit all required technical, specification, and other
                 supporting information with their bid, so that a detailed analysis and determination can be made, by
                 the contracting officer that the product offered meets the ITB specifications and that other
                 requirements of the ITB have been met. However, provided a bid meets the requirements for a
                 definite, firm, unqualified, and unconditional offer, the State reserves the right to request
                 supplemental information from the bidder, after the bids have been opened, to ensure that the
                 products offered completely meet the ITB requirements. The requirement for such supplemental
                 information will be at the reasonable discretion of the State and may include the requirement that a
                 bidder will provide a sample product(s) so that the State can make a first-hand examination and
                 determination.
       35.2      A bidder's failure to provide this supplemental information or the product sample(s), within the time
                 set by the State, will cause the State to consider the offer non-responsive and reject the bid.
36.0 TAXES: Prices quoted in bids must be exclusive of federal, state, and local taxes. If the bidder believes that
       certain taxes are payable by the State, the bidder may list such taxes separately, directly below the bid price
       for the affected item. The State is exempt from Federal Excise Tax because articles purchased are for the
       exclusive use of the State of Alaska.
37.0 USE OF BRAND OR TRADE NAMES: Brand or trade names used by the State in bid specifications are
       for the purpose of describing and establishing the standard of quality, performance and characteristics
       desired and are not a statement of preference nor are they intended to limit or restrict competition. Bidders
       may submit bids for substantially equivalent products to those designated unless the Invitation to Bid
       provides that a specific brand is necessary because of compatibility requirements. All such brand
       substitutions shall be subject to the State's approval.
38.0 WARRANTY: Unless otherwise stated, all equipment shall be new and current model and shall carry full
       factory warranties. Bidder warrants all goods delivered to be free from defects in labor, material and
       manufacture and to be in compliance with bid specifications. All implied or expressed warranty provisions
       of the Uniform Commercial Code apply. All warranties shall be for and benefit the State.

               and continued use upon delivery.
      1.2      Delivery Receipt:
               1.2.1      A delivery receipt will be required for each unit delivered. This form can be of the
                          vendor's own design, but must include the following minimum information: your
                          delivery receipt number, the State Purchase Order (Delivery Order) number (reference
                          the line item number of the vehicle as listed on the Purchase Order, followed by the

                          and properly identify the vehicle delivered.
               1.2.2      Vendors are cautioned and advised that such delivery forms or other receiving type
                          documents will not in any way be construed to mean the state has formally and fully
                          accepted unit(s) referenced thereon as complete and meeting every specification set forth.
                          Regional Equipment Managers are to be contacted regarding delivery coordination and
                          contacts.

2.0   LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR LATE DELIVERY:
      2.1      Time is of the essence in this contract. The Bidder is expected to deliver goods that conform in all
               material respects to the contract specifications on or before the date provided therein, as may be
               amended by written agreement of the parties).
      2.2      In the event that the goods are delivered late or in the event that the goods do not conform in all
               material respects to the contract specifications, the State shall be entitled to offset against the
               Contract Price, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, an amount equal to 0.1% (0.001) of the
               total price of non-conforming goods multiplied by the number of days elapsing between the
               delivery date provided in the specifications and the date that conforming goods are delivered to the
               State. The number of days for which liquidated damages shall apply shall include, in the case of
               non-conforming goods, the time reasonably necessary for the State to inspect the goods.
      2.3      These liquidated damages represent a reasonable estimate of amounts necessary to compensate the
               State for loss of use of the goods during the period in which the goods would have been available to
               the State if conforming goods had been timely delivered.

      2.4      These liquidated damages for late delivery are not the exclusive remedy available to the State, but
               are in addition to all other actual damages that the State may incur by reason of late delivery or by
               reason of delivery of nonconforming goods.
3.0   WARRANTY: (Note: Language on warranty may vary from one item to another depending on the

                          comes first) from the date the unit is placed into service at the assigned location.
               3.1.2      Full Warranty Coverage includes all cost of labor, parts, freight, transportation, per diem,
                          travel, lubricants, miscellaneous cost, etc., to place the unit in like-new condition.
               3.1.3      Should the manufacturer’s standard warranty exceed the minimum State warranty
                          requirements, the manufacturer’s warranty will run in conjunction with and enhance the
                          State’s warranty, then continue for the remainder of its term.
      3.2      GENERAL WARRANTY REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL EQUIPMENT:

                          3.2.1.1      For clarification, warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear or

                                       special equipment, or due to seasonal usage or other delay, shall be
                                       warranted from the date the vehicle is placed in service. The receiving
                                       agency shall notify the vendor/manufacturer in writing of the actual "in
                                       service" date. Notification of the requirement for delayed warranty will be

                          shown in this ITB, Section V - Bid Price Schedule. Because of the remote
                          location of some equipment it is not always practical to deliver equipment
                          to authorized warranty repair facilities. In these cases, the vendor may
                          perform warranty work at the state's location or, the State of Alaska, at its
                          discretion, reserves the right to perform the warranty work and be
                          reimbursed by the vendor.
             3.2.6.2      The State of Alaska has established a warranty procedure whereby the
                          vendor is to be notified via letter, telex, fax, telegram, etc. that warranty
                          work needs to be performed. If time is of the essence, a telephone call
                          confirmed by one of the above written procedures may be utilized. The
                          vendor must notify the state immediately that it will begin to perform the
                          warranty work at the equipment location within 48 hours from receipt of
                          written notification. The State may, at its discretion, proceed to make
                          warranty repairs with its own work force in the case of emergency situation
                          or to preclude excessive downtime (greater than 48 hours).
             3.2.6.3      Failure to notify the State, that the vendor intends to begin to perform
                          warranty work promptly under this paragraph, by the end of the business
                          day following the states notification that work is required to be performed,
                          is considered a contractual breach and will be remedied per Paragraph 8
                          under this section.
   3.2.7     The vendor will be invoiced for required warranty work performed by the state. The
             shop rate to be charged for warranty work performed by the state will be $73.00 per
             hour. Labor hours to be charged will be in accordance with appropriate flat rate manuals.
             If flat rate manuals do not cover the labor operation, actual repair time will be used.
             Warranty work performed by state shop personnel at locations where no shop personnel
             are permanently stationed may be subject to travel expenses incurred involving those
             warranty repairs.
   3.2.8     Factory Recall:
             3.2.8.1 Nationwide factory recall or product update programs are the responsibility of
                         the vendor and/or manufacturer. The State will attempt to bring affected
                         equipment to an authorized repair facility. However, because of the
                         remoteness of some equipment this is not always practicable or economical.
                         In such cases, factory recall and modification work will be handled the
                         same as warranty work. Factory recall notices sent to the state should, in
                         addition to serial number, include model, year, and dealer from whom
                         purchased.

       7.3      Price adjustments, increases or decreases, for subsequent model year orders, may be made by
                providing the Contracting Officer evidence, satisfactory to the State, that all of the following
                conditions exist:
                7.3.1      The increase is a result of the increased cost at the manufacturer’s level and not costs
                           under the contractor’s control, and that;
                7.3.2      The increase will not produce a higher profit margin for the contractor than that on the

                duties set out herein.
8.0    INSPECTIONS:

                 15.1.4    "Minority" includes:
                           15.1.4.1 Black (all persons having origins in any of the Black African racial groups not
                                        of Hispanic origin);
                           15.1.4.2 Hispanic (all persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central or South
                                        American, or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race);
                           15.1.4.3 Asian and Pacific Islander (all persons having origins in any of the original

                                        Pacific Island); and
                           15.1.4.4 American Indian or Alaska Native (all persons having origins in any of the

                                       affiliations through membership and participation or community
                                       identification.
       15.2      Whenever the Contractor, or any subcontractor at any tier, subcontracts a portion of the work
                 involving any construction trade, it shall physically include in each subcontract in excess of $10,000
                 the provisions of these Specifications.
       15.3      If the Contractor is participating (pursuant to 41 CFR 60-4.5) in a Hometown Plan approved by the
                 U.S. Department of Labor in the covered area either individually or through an association, its
                 affirmative action obligations on all work in the plan area (including goals and timetables) shall be

                 Contractors must be able to demonstrate their participation in and compliance with the provisions of
                 any such Hometown Plan. Each Contractor or subcontractor participating in an approved plan is

                 effort to achieve each goal under the plan in each trade in which it has employees. The overall good
                 faith performance by other contractors or subcontractors toward a goal in an approved plan does not
                 excuse any covered Contractors or subcontractors' failure to take good faith efforts to achieve the
                 plan goals and timetables.
       15.4      The Contractor shall implement the specific affirmative action standards provided in paragraphs
                 15.7.1 through 15.7.16 of these Specifications.
       15.5      Neither the provisions of any collective bargaining agreement nor the failure by a union with whom
                 the Contractor has a collective bargaining agreement to refer either minorities or women shall
                 excuse the Contractor's obligations under these Specifications, Executive Order 11246, as amended,
                 or the regulations promulgated pursuant thereto.
       15.6      In order for the nonworking training hours of apprentices and trainees to be counted in meeting the
                 goals, such apprentices and trainees must be employed by the Contractor during the training period
                 and the Contractor must have made a commitment to employ the apprentices and trainees at the
                 completion of their training, subject to the availability of employment opportunities. Trainees must
                 be trained pursuant to training programs approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.

15.7      The Contractor shall take specific affirmative actions to ensure EEO. The evaluation of the
          Contractor's compliance with these Specifications shall be based upon its effort to achieve
          maximum results from its actions. The Contractor shall document these efforts fully and shall
          implement affirmative action steps at least as extensive as the following:
          15.7.1    Ensure and maintain a working environment free of harassment, intimidation, and
                    coercion at all sites, and in all facilities at which the Contractor's employees are assigned
                    to work. The Contractor, here possible, will assign two or more women to each
                    construction project. The Contractor shall specifically ensure that all foremen,
                    superintendents, and other on-site supervisory personnel are aware of and carry out the
                    Contractor's obligation to maintain such a working environment, with specific attention
                    to minority or female individuals working at such sites or in such facilities.
          15.7.2    Establish and maintain a current list of minority and female recruitment sources, provide
                    written notification to minority and female recruitment sources and to community
                    organizations when the Contractor or its unions have employment opportunities
                    available, and maintain a record of the organizations' responses.
          15.7.3    Maintain a current file of the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of each minority
                    and female off-the-street applicant and minority or female referral from a union, a
                    recruitment source, or community organization and of what action was taken with respect
                    to each individual. If such individual was sent to the union hiring hall for referral and
                    was not referred back to the Contractor by the union or, if referred, not employed by the
                    Contractor, this shall be documented in the file with the reason therefore, along with
                    whatever additional actions the Contractor may have taken.
          15.7.4    Provide immediate written notification to the Director when the union or unions with
                    which the Contractor has a collective bargaining agreement has not referred to the
                    Contractor a minority person or women sent by the Contractor, or when the Contractor
                    has other information that the union referral process has impeded the Contractor's efforts
                    to meet its obligations.
          15.7.5    Develop on-the-job training opportunities and/or participate in training programs for the
                    area, which expressly includes minorities and women, including upgrading programs,
                    and apprenticeship and trainee programs relevant to the Contractor's employment needs,
                    especially those programs funded or approved by the Department of Labor. The

                    above.
          15.7.6    Disseminate the Contractor's EEO policy by providing notice of the policy to unions and
                    training programs and requesting their cooperation in assisting the Contractor in meeting
                    its EEO obligations; by including it in any policy manual and collective bargaining
                    agreement; by publicizing it in the company newspaper, annual report, etc.; by specific

                    of these items with on-site personnel such as superintendents, general foremen, etc., prior
                    to the initiation of construction work at any job site.
                    15.7.7.1      A written record shall be made and maintained identifying the time and

          15.7.8    Disseminate the Contractor's EEO policy externally by including it in any advertising in
                    the news media, specifically including minority and female news media, and providing
                    written notification to and discussing the Contractor's EEO policy with other Contractors
                    and subcontractors with whom the Contractor does or anticipates doing business.
          15.7.9    Direct its recruitment efforts, both oral and written, to minority, female, and community
                    organizations, to schools with minority and female students; and to minority and female
                    recruitment and training organizations serving the Contractor's recruitment area and
                    employment needs. No later than one month prior to the date for the acceptance of
                    applications for apprenticeship or other training by recruitment source, the Contractor
                    shall send written notification to organizations, such as the above, describing the
                    openings, screening procedures, and tests to be used in the selection process.
          15.7.10   Encourage present minority and female employees to recruit other minority persons and
                    other women, and where reasonable, provide after school, summer, and vacation
                    employment to minority and female youth both on the site and in other areas of the
                    Contractor's work force.
          15.7.11   Validate all tests and other selection requirements where there is an obligation to do so
                    under 41 CFR Part 60-3.
          15.7.12   Conduct, at least annually, an inventory and evaluation, at least of all minority and
                    female personnel, for promotional opportunities and encourage these employees to seek
                    or to prepare for, through appropriate training, etc., such opportunities.
          15.7.13   Ensure that seniority practices, job classifications, work assignments, and other personnel
                    practices do not have a discriminatory effect by continually monitoring all personnel and
                    employment related activities to ensure that the EEO policy and the Contractor's
                    obligations under these Specifications are being carried out.
          15.7.14   Ensure that all facilities and company activities are nonsegregated except that separate or
                    single-user toilet and necessary changing facilities shall be provided to assure privacy
                    between sexes.
          15.7.15   Document and maintain a record of all solicitation of offers for subcontracts from
                    minority and female construction Contractors and suppliers, including circulation of
                    solicitations to minority and female Contractor associations and other business
                    associations.
          15.7.16   Conduct a review, at least annually, of all supervisors’ adherence to and performance
                    under the Contractor's EEO policies and affirmative action.
15.8      Contractors are encouraged to participate in voluntary associations, which assist in fulfilling one or
          more of their affirmative action obligations (15.7.1 through 15.7.16). The efforts of a Contractor
          association, join Contractor-union, Contractor-community, or other similar groups of which the
          Contractor is a member and participation, may be asserted as fulfilling any one or more of its
          obligations under 15.7.1 through 15.7.16 of these Specifications, provided that the Contractor
          actively participates in the group, makes every effort to assure that the group has a positive impact
          on the employment of minorities and women in the industry, ensures that the concrete benefits of
          the program are reflected in the Contractor's minority and female work force participation, makes a
          good faith effort to meet its individual goals an timetables, and can provide access to documentation
          which demonstrates the effectiveness of actions taken on behalf of the Contractor. The obligation
          to comply, however, is the Contractor's and failure of such a group to fulfill an obligation shall not
          be a defense for the Contractor's noncompliance.

                                           Page 9 of 17
       15.9      The Contractor is required to provide EEO and to take affirmative action for all groups, both
                 minority and non-minority. Consequently, the Contractor may be in violation of the Executive
                 Order if a particular group is employed in a substantially desperate manner.
       15.10     The Contractor shall not use the affirmative action standard to discriminate against any person
                 because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
       15.11     The Contractor shall not enter into any subcontract with any person or firm debarred from
                 Government contracts pursuant to Executive Order 11246, as amended.
       15.12     The Contractor shall carry out such sanctions and penalties for violation of these Specifications and
                 of the Equal Opportunity Clause, including suspension, termination, and cancellation of existing
                 subcontractors as may be imposed or ordered pursuant to Executive Order 11246, as amended, and
                 its implementing regulations, by the OFCCP. Any Contractor who fails to carry out such sanctions
                 and penalties shall be in violation of these Specifications and Executive Order 11246, as amended.
       15.13     The contractor, in fulfilling its obligations under these specifications, shall implement specific
                 affirmative action steps, at least as extensive as those standards prescribed in paragraph 7 of these
                 specifications, so as to achieve maximum results from it's efforts to ensure equal employment
                 opportunity. If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of the Executive Order, the
                 implementing regulations, or these specifications, the Director shall proceed in accordance with 41
                 CFR 60-4.8.
       15.14     The Contractor shall designate a responsible official to monitor all employment related activity to
                 ensure that the company EEO policy is being carried out, to submit reports relating to the provisions
                 hereof as may be required by the Government, and to keep records. Records shall at least include
                 for each employee, the name, address, telephone number, construction trade, union affiliation (if
                 any), employee identification number when assigned, social security number, race, sex, status (e.g.,
                 mechanic, apprentice, trainee, helper, or laborer), dates of changes in status, hours worker per week
                 in the indicated trade.
16.0   FOREIGN TRADE RESTRICTIONS:
       16.1      The contractor or subcontractor, by submission of an offer and/or execution of a contract, certifies
                 that it:
                 16.1.1     Is not owned or controlled by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country
                            included in the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms published by the
                            Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR);
                 16.1.2     Has not knowingly entered into any contract or subcontract for this project with a
                            contractor that is a citizen or national of a foreign country on said list, or is owned or
                            controlled directly or indirectly by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country
                            on said list.
                 16.1.3     Has not procured any product nor subcontracted for the supply of any product for use on
                            the project that is produced in a foreign country on said list
       16.2      Unless the restrictions of this clause are waived by the Secretary of Transportation in accordance
                 with 49 CFR 30.17, no contract shall be awarded to a contractor or subcontractor who is unable to
                 certify to the above. If the contractor knowingly procures or subcontracts for the supply of any
                 product or service of a foreign country on the said list for use on the project, the Federal Aviation
                 Administration may direct, through the sponsor, cancellation of the contract at no cost to the
                 Government.

       16.3      Further, the contractor agrees that, if awarded a contract resulting from this solicitation, it will
                 incorporate this provision for certification without modification in each contract and in all lower tier
                 subcontracts. The contractor may rely upon the certification of a prospective subcontractor unless it
                 has knowledge that the certification is erroneous.
       16.4      The contractor shall provide immediate written notice to the sponsor if the contractor learns that its
                 certification or that of a subcontractor was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by
                 reason of changed circumstances. The subcontractor agrees to provide immediate written notice to
                 the contractor if at any time it learns that its certification was erroneous by reason of changed
                 circumstances.
       16.5      This certification is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when making
                 the award. If it is later determined that the contractor or subcontractor knowingly rendered an
                 erroneous certification, the Federal Aviation Administration may direct, through the sponsor,
                 cancellation of the contract or subcontract for default at no cost to the Government.
       16.6      Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of
                 records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by this provision. The knowledge
                 and information of a contractor is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a
                 prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.
       16.7      This certification concerns a matter within the jurisdiction of an agency of the United States of
                 America and the making of a false, fictitious, or fraudulent certification may render the maker
                 subject to prosecution under Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001.

20.0   BUY AMERICAN - STEEL AND MANUFACTURED PRODUCTS (JAN 1991):
       20.1      The Aviation Safety and Capacity Expansion Act of 1990 provides that preference be given to steel
                 and manufactured products produced in the United States when funds are expended pursuant to a
                 grant issued under the Airport Improvement Program. The following terms apply:
                 20.1.1    Steel and manufactured products. As used in this clause, steel and manufactured
                           products include (1) steel produced in the United States or (2) a manufactured product
                           produced in the United States, if the cost of its components mined, produced or
                           manufactured in the United States exceeds 60 percent of the cost of all its components
                           and final assembly has taken place in the United States. Components of foreign origin of
                           the same class or kind as the products referred to in subparagraphs 20.2.1 or 20.2.2 shall
                           be treated as domestic.
                 20.1.2    Components. As used in this clause, components means those articles, materials, and
                           supplies incorporated directly into steel and manufactured products.
                 20.1.3    Cost of Components. This means the costs for production of the components, exclusive
                           of final assembly labor costs.
       20.2      The successful bidder will be required to deliver only domestic steel and manufactured products,
                 except those –
                 20.2.1    that the U.S. Department of Transportation has determined, under the Aviation Safety
                           and Capacity Expansion Act of 1990, are not produced in the United States in sufficient
                           and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality;
                 20.2.2    that the U.S. Department of Transportation has determined, under the Aviation Safety
                           and Capacity Expansion Act of 1990, that domestic preference would be inconsistent
                           with the public interest; or
                 20.2.3    that inclusion of domestic material will increase the cost of the overall project contract by
                           more than 25 percent.
       20.3      The Contractor shall deliver only domestic steel and manufactured products under this contract as

                                         manufactured products include (1) those produced in the United State or (2)
                                         a manufactured product produced in the United States, if the cost of its
                                         components mined, produced or manufactured in the United States exceeds
                                         60 percent of the cost of all its components and final assembly has taken
                                         place in the United States.
                           20.3.1.2      Components. As used in this clause, components means those articles,
                                         materials, and supplies incorporated directly into steel and manufactured
