                        precedence.

       16.15 Competition

              16.15.1 There are no Federal or State Laws that prohibit bidders from submitting a bid lower than a
                      price or bid given to the U.S. Government. Bidders may bid lower than U.S. Government
                      contract price without any liability as the State is exempt from the provisions of the
                      Robinson-Patman Act and other related laws. In addition, the U. S. Government has no
                      provisions in any of its purchasing arrangements with bidders whereby a lower price to the
                      State must automatically be given to the U.S. Government.

       16.16 Waiver

              16.16.1 The State reserves the right to waive any General Condition, Special Condition, or minor
                      specification deviation when considered to be in the best interest of the State.

       16.17 Cancellation

              16.17.1 Any Contract or item award may be canceled with or without cause by the State with the
                      giving of 30 days written notice of intent to cancel. Cause for the State to cancel may include,
                      but are not limited to, cost exceeding current market prices for comparable purchase request;
                      for increase in prices during the period of the Contract; or failure to perform to Contract
                      conditions. Cancellation by the State does not relieve the Contractor of any liability arising
                      out of a default or nonperformance. If a contract is canceled by the State due to a request for
                      increase in prices or failure to perform, that vendor may be removed from the Qualified
                      Bidders List for a period of 24 months. Contractor may cancel a contract for cause with the
                      giving of 30 days written notice of intent to cancel only in accordance with AIA Document
                      A201 Section 14.1.

       16.18 Substitutions During Contract

              16.18.1 During the term of a contract, if adequate documentation is provided that supports the claim
                      that the contract item(s) are not available, items which meet the minimum specifications may
                      be substituted if approved by the State/Owner and are deemed to be in the best interest of the
                      State.

       16.19 Application

              16.19.1 It is understood and agreed by the Vendor that the items contract is entered into solely for the
                      convenience of the state agencies and all purchases made by these agencies for products
                      included under the provisions of this contract shall be purchased from the vendor(s) receiving
                      the award.

       16.20 Addenda

              16.20.1 Addenda modifying plans and/or specifications may be issued if time permits. No addendum
                      will be issued within a period of two (2) working days prior to the time and date set for the
                      proposal/bid opening. Should it become necessary to issue an addendum within the two day
                      period prior to the bid opening, the bid date will be reset giving bidders ample time to answer
                      the addendum. When replying to a bid request on which an addendum has been issued, the bid
                      shall indicate that provisions of the addendum have been noted and that the bid is being offered
                      in compliance therewith. Failure to make this statement may result in the bid being rejected as
                      not being in accordance with the revised specifications or plans.

       16.21 Alternate Bids

              16.21.1 The base bid may be amplified by alternates. The award(s) may be made upon the best value
                      in consideration of the base bid and any combination of alternates that is determined to be in
                      the best interest of the State of Mississippi.

              16.22.1 It shall be incumbent upon all bidders to understand the provisions of the specifications and to
                      obtain clarification prior to the time and date set for the bid opening. Such clarification will be
                      answered only in response to a written request. No clarification will be offered as a response
                      to a telephone request.

       16.23 Proposal Opening

              16.23.1 The opening of proposals shall be conducted open to the public and will only serve to
                      acknowledge receipt of the proposals. No discussion will be entered into with any vendor as to
                      the quality or provisions of the specifications and no award will be made either stated or
                      implied at the bid/proposal opening.

       16.24 Primary and Alternative Bidding

                     management and security of a staging area, receipt of and documentation of all Modular
                     Homes arriving and leaving the staging area; Transport of the Modular Homes from the staging
                     area and installation of the Modular Homes ready for occupancy (RFO) at the sites provided by
                     MEMA‟s representative. The staging area must be located within 75 miles of the Mississippi
                     Coast line. Contractor is responsible for tracking location of and reporting to the State the
                     timeline and location of all Modular Homes from arrival at the Staging Area to the RFO
                     condition of said Modular Homes. Contractors must list capabilities and maintain adequate
                     distribution capabilities and adequate stock of all items to insure prompt delivery as required to

                     Plans and Specifications for Bid Base and Alternate information.

       16.25 Firm Bid Price

              16.25.1 Prices quoted shall be firm for the term of the contract.

       16.26 Assignment

              16.26.1 The Contractor shall not assign or subcontract in whole or in part, its right or obligations
                      under this agreement without prior written consent of the Owner/State.

       16.27 ALL BIDS SUBMITTED SHALL BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE GENERAL CONDITIONS
             SET FORTH HEREIN. THE BID PROCEDURES FOLLOWED BY THIS OFFICE WILL BE IN
             ACCORDANCE WITH THESE CONDITIONS. THEREFORE, ALL VENDORS ARE URGED TO
             READ AND UNDERSTAND THESE CONDITIONS PRIOR TO SUBMITTING A BID.

   17. Termination for Cause. The State may terminate the Contract if the Contractor fails to (1) deliver the product within the
       time specified in the Contract or any extension, (2) maintain adequate progress, thus endangering performance of the
       Contract, (3) honor any term of the Contract, or (4) abide by any statutory, regulatory, or licensing requirement. Rule
       60A-1.006(3), FAC., governs the procedure and consequences of default. The Contractor shall continue work on any work
       not terminated. Except for defaults of subcontractors at any tier, the Contractor shall not be liable for any excess costs if
       the failure to perform the Contract arises from events completely beyond the control, and without the fault or negligence,
       of the Contractor. If the failure to perform is caused by the default of a subcontractor at any tier, and if the cause of the
       default is completely beyond the control of both the Contractor and the subcontractor, and without the fault or negligence
       of either, the Contractor shall not be liable for any excess costs for failure to perform, unless the subcontracted products
       were obtainable from other sources in sufficient time for the Contractor to meet the required delivery schedule. If, after
       termination, it is determined that the Contractor was not in default, or that the default was excusable, the rights and
       obligations of the parties shall be the same as if the termination had been issued for the convenience of the Customer. The
       rights and remedies of the Customer in this clause are in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or
       under the Contract.

   18. Force Majeure, Notice of Delay, and No Damages for Delay. The Contractor shall not be responsible for delay resulting

[Type text]
       from its failure to perform if neither the fault nor the negligence of the Contractor or its employees or agents contributed
       to the delay and the delay is due directly to acts of God, wars act of public enemies, strikes fires, floods or other similar
       cause wholly beyond the Contactor‟s control, or foe for any of the foregoing that affect subcontractors or suppliers if no
       alternate source of supply is available to the Contractor. In case of any delay the Contactor believes is excusable, the
       Contractor shall notify the State in writing of the delay or potential delay and describe the cause of the delay either (1)
       within (10) days after the cause that creates or will create the delay first arose, if the Contractor could reasonably foresee
       that a delay could occur as a result, or (2) if delay is not reasonably foreseeable, within five (5) days after the date the
       Contractor first had reason to believe that a delay could result. THE FOREGOING SHALL CONSTITUTE THE

       CONTRACTOR‟S SOLE REMEDY OR EXCUSE WITH RESPECT TO DELAY. Providing notice in strict accordance
       with this paragraph is a condition precedent to such remedy. No claim for damages, other than for an extension of time,
       shall be asserted against the State. The Contract shall not be entitled to an increase in the Contract price or payment of
       any kind from the State for direct or indirect, consequential impact or other costs, expenses, or damages, including but not
       limited to costs of acceleration or inefficiency, arising because of delay, disruption, interference, or hindrance from any
       cause whatsoever. If performance is suspended or delayed, in whole or in part, due to any of the causes described in this
       paragraph, after the causes have ceased to exist the Contractor shall perform at no increase cost, unless the State
       determines, in its sole discretion, that the delay will significantly impair the value of the Contract to the State , in which
       case the State (1) accept allocated performance or deliveries from the Contractor, provided that the Contractor grants
       preferential treatment to Owner with respect to products subjected to allocation, or (2) purchase from other sources
       (without recourse to and by the Contractor for the related costs and expenses) to replace all or part of the products that are
       the subject of the delay which purchases may be deducted from the Contract quantity, or (3) terminate the Contract in
       whole or in part.

   19. Scope Changes. The State may unilaterally require, by written order, changes altering, adding to, or deducting from the
       Contract specifications, provided that such changes are within the general scope of the Contract. The State may make an
       equitable adjustment in the Contract price or delivery date if the change affects the cost or time of performance. Such
       equitable adjustments require the written consent of the Contractor, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. If unusual
       quantity requirements arise, the State may solicit separate bids to satisfy them.

   20. Renewal. Upon mutual agreement, the state and the Contractor may renew the Contract, in whole, or in part, for a period
       that may not exceed 6 months or the term of the contract, whichever period is longer. Any renewal shall specify the
       renewal price, as set forth in the solicitation response. The renewal must be in writing and signed by both parties, and is
       contingent upon satisfactory performance evaluations and subject to availability of funds.

   21. Advertising. The Contractor shall not publicly disseminate any information concerning the Contract without prior written
       approval from the Customer (State), including, but not limited to mentioning the Contract in a press release or other
       promotional material, identifying the State as a reference, or otherwise linking the Contractor‟s name and either a
       description of the Contract or the name of the State in any material published, either in print or electronically, to any entity
       that is not a party to Contract, except potential or actual authorized distributors, dealers, resellers, or service
       representative.

   22. Dispute Resolution. Any dispute concerning performance of the Contract shall be decided by the State‟s designated
       contract manager, who shall reduce the decision to writing and serve a copy on the Contractor. The decision shall be final
       and conclusive unless within ten (10) days from the date of the receipt, the Contractor files with the State a petition for
       administrative hearing. The State‟s decision on the petition shall be final, subject to the Contractor‟s right to review
       pursuant to Mississippi Statutes. Exhaustion of administrative remedies is an absolute condition precedent to the
       Contractor‟s right to review pursuant to ability to pursue any other form of dispute resolution.

       Without limiting the foregoing, the exclusive venue of any legal or equitable action that arises out of or relates to the
       Contract shall be the appropriate state court in Rankin County Mississippi, in any such action, Mississippi law shall apply
       and the parties waive any right to jury trial.

   23. Employees, Subcontractors, and Agents. All Contractor employees, subcontractors, or agents performing work under the
       Contract shall be properly trained technicians who meet or exceed any specified training qualifications. Upon request,
       Contractor shall furnish a copy of technical certification or other proof of qualification. All employees, subcontractors, or
       agents performing work under the Contract must comply with all security and administrative requirements of the State.
       The state may conduct, and the Contractor shall cooperate in, a security background check or otherwise assess any
       employee, subcontractor, or agent furnished by the Contractor. The State may refuse access to, or require replacement of,

[Type text]
       any personnel for cause, including, but not limited to, technical or training qualifications, quality of work, change in
       security status, or other requirements. Such approval shall not relieve the Contractor of its obligation to perform all work,
       change in security status, or non-compliance of the Contract. The State may reject and bar from any facility for cause any
       of the Contractor‟s employees, subcontractors, or agents.

   24. Security and Confidentiality. The Contractor shall comply fully with all security procedures of the State in performance
       of the Contract. The Contractor shall not divulge to third parties any confidential information obtained by the Contractor
       or its agents, distributors, resellers, subcontractors, officers or employees in the course of performing Contract work,
       including, but not limited to, security procedures, business operations information, or commercial proprietary information
       in the possession of the State. The Contractor shall not be required to keep confidential information or material that is
       publicly available through no fault of the Contractor, material that the Contractor developed independently without relying
       on the State‟s confidential information or material that is otherwise obtainable under State law as a public record. To
       insure confidentiality, the Contractor shall take appropriate steps as to its personnel, agents, and subcontractors. The
       warranties of this paragraph shall survive the Contract.

   25. Insurance Requirements. During the Contract term, the Contractor at its sole expense shall provide commercial insurance
       of such a type and with such terms and limits as may be reasonably associated with the contract. Providing and
       maintaining adequate insurance coverage is a material obligation of the Contractor. Upon request, the Contractor shall not
       be interpreted as limiting the Contractor‟s liability and obligations under the Contract. All insurance policies shall be
       through insurers authorized and licensed to write policies in Mississippi. See enclosed minimum insurance coverage
   forms.

   26. Warranty of Authority. Each person signing the Contract warrants that he or she is duly authorized to do so and to bind
       the respective party to the Contract.

   27. Notices. All notices required under the Contract shall be delivered by certified mail, return receipt requested, by reputable
       air courier service, or by personal delivery to the agency designee identified in original solicitation, or as otherwise
       identified by the State. Notices to the Contractor shall be delivered to the person who signs the Contract. Either
       designated recipient may notify the other, in writing if someone else is designated to receive notice.

   28. Modification of Terms. The Contract contains all the terms and conditions agreed upon by the parties, which terms and
       conditions shall govern all transactions between the Customer and the Contractor. The Contract may only be modified or
       amended upon mutual written agreement of the State and the Contractor. No oral agreements or representations shall be
       valid or binding upon the Customer or the Contractor. No alteration or modification of the Contract terms, including
       substitution of product shall be valid or binding against the State. The Contractor may not unilaterally modify the terms
       of the Contract by affixing additional terms to product upon delivery (e.g., attachment or inclusion of standard preprinted
       forms, product literature, “shrink wrap” terms accompanying or affixed to a product, whether written or electronic) or by
       the Contractor for payment. The State‟s acceptance of product or processing of documentation on forms furnished by the
       Contactor for approval or payment shall not constitute acceptance of the proposed modification to terms and conditions.

   29. Waiver. The delay or failure by the State to exercise or enforce any of its rights under this Contract shall not constitute or
       be deemed a waiver of the Customer‟s (State‟s) right thereafter to enforce those rights, nor shall any single or partial
       exercise of any such right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right.

   30. Appropriations. The State‟s performance and obligation to pay under this contract are contingent upon an annual
       appropriation by the Legislature or by Federal Funding Limitations.

   31. Execution in Counterparts. The Contract may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of
       which shall constitute but one and the same instrument.

   32. Severability. If a court deems any provision of the Contract void or unenforceable, that provision shall be enforced only
       to the extent that is not in violation of law or is not otherwise unenforceable and all other provisions shall remain in full
       force and effect.

   33. Performance and Payment Bond. Contractor is required to provide concurrently with executed contract a performance
       and Payment bond in the minimum amount of One Hundred Percent (100%) of the contract together with all amendments
       thereto, and to maintain said bond throughout the term of the contract awarded hereunder to ensure its timely and
       complete performance of the scope of work under the contract. MEMA shall have the exclusive right to file against said

[Type text]
       bond.

   34. Bid Security Bond. Bidders must enclose a certified check or a bid bond made payable to the Mississippi Emergency
       Management Agency in an amount equal to at least five percent (5%) of the total of the BASE BIDS, guaranteeing
       execution and delivery of a contract within 10 days as required by the contract documents.

       become the property of MEMA. Any material submitted in response to RFP will become a public document, including

       The contractor‟s current certificate of insurance shall contain a provision that the insurance will not be canceled or
       modified for any reason except after a thirty (30) day written notice to the MEMA Contract Administrator.

   38. Conflict-of-Interest. The respondent covenants that neither it nor any of its principals presently has any interest and will
       not acquire any interest which would conflict in any manner or degree with the performance of services required
       hereunder.

       contract, or in any wise connected herewith, the bidder shall refer the discovery of inventions to the Division (State) to
       determine whether patent projection will be sought in the name of the State of Mississippi. Any and all patent rights

       If the bidder brings to the performance of this contract a pre-existing patent or copyright, the bidder shall retain all rights

       Concurrent with execution of the contract, the bidder shall disclose all intellectual properties relevant to the
       performance of this contract which it knows or should know could give rise to a patent or copyright. The bidder shall
       retain all rights and entitlements to any pre-existing intellectual property which is so disclosed. Failure to disclose will
       indicate that no such property exists. The State shall then have the right to all patents and copyrights which occur
       during performance, or as a result, of the contract.

                                      SCOPE OF WORK
ADDENDA:
For Clarification: This RFP references Temporary to Permanent modification of HUD-Code 3285 in
achieving State and Local floodplain compliance. It should be noted that this statement in no way infers that
the HUD-Code design bears any similarity to a floodplain-compliant design and that the reference merely
intends to reflect the fact that those Cottages now on HUD-Code foundations must be modified to whatever
extent necessary to meet State and Local Codes.


   Purpose
   The Mississippi Alternative Housing Program is a pilot program implemented by FEMA and
   administered by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency. The mission of the program is to
   develop, produce and test a safer and more comfortable temporary housing unit for use in future disasters.
   Additionally the mission is to assist homeowners with their transition from travel trailers and mobile
   homes to long-term housing they may also opt to purchase. The program is time-sensitive; specific goals
   must be accomplished within the timeline defined by FEMA in order for mission success to occur.

   Now that the program is nearing completion, MEMA is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) and is
   hereby accepting competitive sealed proposals for deactivation and transportation of cottage units. An
   additional, integral component of this RFP is the section regarding land and facilities anticipated to
   support the operations herein described.

   Furthermore, as the program has been determined by the state to be a solution to long-term housing needs
   by disaster victims along the Gulf Coast, this proposal will include sections specific to various levels of
   rehabilitation of the temporary housing units such as:
        Reactivation of the temporary housing units into permanent residency.
        Transportation of the housing units to their permanent location and the affixation of the housing
           units to their permanent foundations.
        Elevation of up to 5 feet, 7 inches of some units from their temporary installation to a permanent
           installation, depending upon flood map requirements.

   The housing units used to support the program are the two and three bedroom Mississippi Cottages, one
   bedroom Park Models, or one or two bedroom Eco Cottages, and shall be referred to as units or cottages
   in this document.

   At this time, it is anticipated that the units used to support the program will be deactivated and disposed
   of by methods determined by MEMA. This SOW provides technical requirements for the deactivation of
   temporary units used to support the program, as administered by MEMA and requirements for permanent
   installation of such units. As such, the SOW describes the actions required to deactivate the temporary
   units in a safe and secure manner, and includes a specific listing of criteria to follow during the
   deactivating and disposition processes. Inclusive as well is the transportation of units at any phase on a
   per-mile basis. It further includes reactivation procedures to be followed in the permanent installation of
   such units as well as a section requesting proposals for various types of foundations.

      Contract Officer Technical Representative (COTR) – name will be announced at later date.
   b. Coverage Area: George, Hancock, Harrison, Jackson, Stone and Pearl River counties.
2. DEFINITIONS
   a. Transition Site: A tract of adequate, drainable land and roadways, land to be used for purposes of
      staging and storing the units as they arrive from and await final disposition. This site is also to be
      utilized as necessary as a compound for the repair and rehabilitation of the units or for their complete
      demolition. This location may also be utilized as a public auction place for the disposition of the
      units. Such facilities shall not be located in any floodplain or floodway.
   b. Base of Operations (BoO): The Contractor shall maintain at the transition site a BoO containing an
      office, adequate storage area(s), and shop facilities to meet requirements and obligations safely,
      efficiently, effectively and in a timely manner.
   c. Deactivation: The process as described within TASK 300 whereby any unit is taken out of
      residential service, made ready for transport and becomes ready for a disposition assessment. Final
      disposition is to be based solely on a determination by MEMA. This task category will also include
      the process of clean-up and restoration of the temporary site the unit is deactivated from.
   d. Disposition: As used herein, disposition may mean unit reactivation into permanent residency,
      outright sale or auction of units, demolition or scrapping of units. This typically is the path by which
      units become the property of others or are legally removed from status as State property.

      meant to convert the certification of units from manufactured housing labeling to modular home
      labeling (the 2006 IRC must be followed in its construction). This foundation may also be used in
      floodplains where higher elevations are required by local jurisdictions and as determined by MEMA.
   i. Wood Pylon: A foundation system of treated wooden posts properly set in concrete. This design may
      typically be utilized in floodplains where elevations up to 96 inches are required by local jurisdictions
      and as determined by MEMA.
   j. HUD’-Set: The „dry-stack‟ block pier system designed for use in the temporary phase of the
      MAHPP which further utilizes an „auger-system‟ tie-down feature. Associated with the “Model
       Manufactured Home Installation Standards; Proposed Rule,” (HUD, 24CFR3280& 24CFR3285, April 26,
       2005). This foundation design cannot be utilized in any floodplain whereby a jurisdiction requires elevation.
   k. Rehabilitation: With regard to this contract, optional, MEMA-specified work with which the
      Contractor may be tasked to renovate deactivated units prior to reactivation.
   l. Miscellaneous Tasks: Tasks approved by the COTR, which cannot be associated with a specific task
      category under the contract. „Miscellaneous‟ Tasks are generally minor in nature and monetary
      amount and do not require Change Order.
   m. NFIP: National Flood Insurance Plan.
   n. Transportation or Transport: The movement of a unit from one site to another. A specific part of
      the Deactivation or Reactivation process.

   s. Plumbing System: The plumbing system includes all water and sewer lines, fixtures and tanks inside
      the temporary unit, as well as external lines running from the temporary unit to the utility meter or the
      commercial park‟s connection (where applicable).
   t. Electrical System: The electrical system includes all wiring and associated parts from the power
      company‟s connection on the meter loop pole or pedestal, to and throughout the manufactured unit,
      and including the underground entrance cable. When disconnecting from an approved power source,
      the responsibility shall include all installed components up to the approved power source.
   u. HVAC: The Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system includes all major components and
      ducts. It also includes fixtures, wiring and associated parts and accessories (inclusive of Freon).
   v. Right-of-Entry (ROE) Form: A legally-binding form authorizing the Contractor, MEMA and its
      representatives the right to enter upon private property to perform specific tasks associated with this
      contract. The authorization is conveyed and executed by the legal owner(s) of the property to be
      entered. This authorization is to be witnessed by a Notary Public. The document may also be
      executed by those representatives of the owner(s) bearing Power-of-Attorney. All such forms,
      excepting the Contractor‟s Transition Site ROE, shall be those authorized by MEMA for use in this
      project.

3. INDEFINITE QUANTITY
   a. This is an indefinite quantity contract for the material and/or services specified and is effective for the
      period stated in the RFP. The quantities of material and services specified in the RFP are estimates
      only and are not purchasable by this contract.
   b. Delivery or performance shall be conducted only as authorized by orders issued in accordance with the
      applicable section(s) within the RFP and SOW. The Contractor shall furnish to MEMA (when and if
      ordered) the material or services specified within the RFP and SOW up to and possibly above the
      quantity designated in Section 10 herein (Summary of Work Tasks) as the “estimated” amount. It is
      MEMA‟s intent to order at least the quantity of supplies or services designated in the Summary of
      Work Tasks as the “estimated” amount, however, there is neither assurance nor guarantee that these
      total amounts will be ordered.
   c. MEMA desires further to make it clear within this RFP that the total number of units receiving those
      materials and/or services are strictly limited to the availability of grant funds that remain within the
      program budget for the deactivation and/or reactivation of the units. As the mission is to supply long-
      term housing to those storm victims still in need, the limitations on quantities of tasks shall be held to
      the remaining time in the project as defined by FEMA as well as the availability of those grant funds.
      Although MEMA does not have final figures of the number of cottages to be demobilized or set
      permanently, contractor(s) can plan on a minimum of 500 units and a maximum amount of 2,500 units.
   d. The Contractor shall complete all work during the effective period of this contract as defined herein as
      the “Period of Performance” as shown in Section 12.

       (6) The Contractor shall propose costing for the deactivation services in TASK 300 based on unit
           type, i.e., two and three-bedroom Mississippi Cottages and Park Models. Such pricing shall take
           into consideration anticipated variables at each unit location such as water & sewer line distance
           differences, ramp lengths, etc.

    d. TASK 400: Unit Transportation without Setup
       (1) The Contractor shall transport the unit to a MEMA-designated location or to the Contractor‟s
           Transition Site. As each and every unit will travel undetermined distances, the Contractor shall
           provide a fixed-fee, one-way, per-mile cost proposal. The Contractor may expect that units shall
           be delivered to and from any point within the project area, unless a different area is designated
           and negotiated by MEMA.
       (2) The Contractor shall ensure that the unit is transportable and meets all necessary requirements to
           be transported (i.e. towed) on public roads.
       (3) The Contractor shall be responsible for obtaining all required towing, hauling, or transporting
           permits, according to all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
       (4) The Contractor shall follow each manufacturer‟s recommendations regarding hitch-up and un-
           hitch of the units. The hitching tongue or coupling weight born shall be not less than 12 percent
           or more than 25 percent of the home‟s gross weight or manufacturer‟s requirements whichever is
           more conservative. (refer to H.U.D. standard reference 3280.904b4ii for other transport
           standards).
       (5) TASK 400 costing shall not include any foundation setups; the costing or pricing for this task is
           for haul, unload and safely secure at the Contractor‟s Transition Site, MEMA‟s designated
           destination for the unit(s), or from the transition site to MEMA‟s designated permanent
           installation location.
       (6) Support documentation associated with invoicing for transportation of units shall be by hauling
           vehicle beginning and ending readings, online or geographic positioning services and all mileage
           billings shall be verified by MEMA for the one-way billing.

    f. TASK 500: Transition Site Operation and Security
       (1) Contractor shall:
           (a) Provide appropriate office space, facilities and staff at the designated Transition area, in
               order to maintain tracking, personal safety of all personnel and visitors and security of onsite
               units.
           (b) Provide adequate space, utility hookup access, ingress-egress for PBS&J‟s Operations office
               module or trailer.


[Type text]
              (b) Maintain an electronic tracking system that inventories incoming and outgoing units,
                  including unit identification numbers, bar codes, MS property labels, type and manufacturer
                  of units, origins of units, and destinations of units.
              (c) Provide onsite security on a continuous (24 hour / 7 day per week) basis.
              (d) Provide an acceptable area for receipt and storage of items destined for salvage and/or
                  disposal, whether disposed of at a landfill or gleaned by charitable organizations (i.e., steps,
                  ramps, skirting, couches, mattresses, etc.)
              (e) Provide assurance in its proposal that any invoicing amounts proposed in this task category
                  bear no duplication of management, services or labor and associated billings within other
                  task categories.

    g. TASK 600: Unit Rehabilitation
       (1) The Contractor and MEMA shall jointly inspect each unit. A determination will be made by
       MEMA based on cost effectiveness as to the suitability of the unit for reactivation to meet ongoing
       long-term housing needs within the project area. The first assessment and joint inspection will be at
       deactivation and prior to the unit being loaded for transport; the second shall be conducted following
       the unloading of the unit at its destination.
       (2) Such assessment shall be conducted utilizing a standard form to be provided by MEMA to the
       Contractor for each unit. Both MEMA and the Contractor will jointly assess each line item
       simultaneously upon separate but identical forms. The forms are to be developed and provided by
       MEMA.
       (3) Inspection and assessment will include, but may not be limited to structural integrity, flooring and
       floor covering, sheetrock, siding, roofing, paint, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, electrical,
       lighting and accessories, cabinets, installation or re-installation of skirting (lattice skirting will be
       used optionally for units to be installed in floodplains), fixtures, windows and glazing and doors,
       including door accessories.
       (4) Rehabilitation shall NOT include replacement of appliances, without the written approval of
       MEMA; however, it shall include their disposal – the Contractor shall submit separate invoicing and
       support documentation for disposal of refrigerators (and air conditioners) requiring certification of the
       removal of Freon.
       (5) Upon written request by the COTR, the Contractor shall conduct an estimate of repair or
       rehabilitation of each unit and submit a written, itemized quotation for such proposed work in
       accordance with the line items proposed by the Contractor and to be included in the Schedule of
       Values. The line items shall include unit pricing in linear and square feet for sheetrock, carpet, tile or
       linoleum, paint work in square feet times the required coat application, per each on electrical,
       plumbing and other fixtures, including cabinets, doors and window units, etc.; Quote Item Z-3
       Provides instruction for pricing submittal. The Contractor shall establish within his proposal the
       complete, anticipated line items necessary for Cottage rehabilitation. MEMA shall reserve the right to
       solicit competitive quotations from other qualified contractors should funding for this optional task
       diminish.
       (6) The COTR and MEMA may reserve the right to negotiate the quotation or eliminate certain
       components or line items of the quotation.
       (7) The Contractor shall not proceed with rehabilitation work prior to the receipt of a work order
       from the COTR. Once a work order is received, the Contractor may, with the COTR‟s written
       approval, elect to conduct such work at the deactivation site or following permanent placement of the
       unit to its foundation.
       (8) Following completion of rehabilitation work the Contractor shall schedule another joint
       inspection with MEMA; included with the standard inspection form will be a copy of the Contractor‟s

[Type text]
       written quotation as well as a copy of MEMA‟s work order, noting any deviation or elected
       elimination.
       (9) Contractor shall use only materials identical or exceeding the type and quality as specified in the
       unit's original manufacture, including, but not limited to the presence of extremely low and acceptable
       levels of formaldehyde (all materials used must meet 24CFR3280.308). Furthermore, the contractor
       shall insure that the code required fresh air requirements (per 2006 IRC) be met at all times. The
       Contractor shall use due diligence when approaching manufacturers and vendors in stating these
       requirements. MEMA shall reserve the right to conduct testing through the state or any independent
       resource in order to assure compliance.
       (10) MEMA‟s inspecting representative shall either approve the work or submit via the COTR a
       „punch-list‟ of incomplete, missing, rejected or otherwise unsatisfactory work, also stating the
       reason(s) for such rejection.
       (11) All incomplete, missing or unsatisfactory work shall be corrected by the Contractor in an
       expeditious manner at no additional cost to MEMA. When it is discovered by MEMA that the
       contractor has not installed work according to code or manufacturers installation instructions the
       contractor shall be required at his expense to correct the installation, even when the nonconforming
       work has been covered.
       (12) The Contractor is reminded of requirements previously described herein regarding jurisdictional
       permits and licensing. In the absence of such authority, all work and materials will, at a minimum, be
       professionally carried out as per the 2003 IRC, the jurisdiction‟s adopted code and the 2006 IRC,
       when installing permanent foundations; MEMA reserves the right to inspect all work prior to it
       becoming hidden, covered or otherwise inaccessible.


  h. TASK 700: Permanent Site Preparation
       (1) MEMA, under ordinary circumstances will expect property owners to have the lot in such a
           condition as to safely and properly receive a permanent unit. MEMA‟s representative will pre-
           screen each site for suitability inclusive of an assessment of soil bearing conditions to
           determine if the minimum bearing of 1,200 psi is met for a “HUD-set foundation. „Push-Pull‟
           tests shall also be conducted to substantiate the site‟s soil-bearing capacity for the auger tie-
           down system.
       (2) As various and unique circumstances and conditions exist with the properties of the project
           area, differing permanent setups for the units will also exist, i.e., floodplains, varying soils
           conditions, properties both owned and rented by occupants (commercial parks), etc.
       (3) This SOW under TASK 900 will only address preparation necessary to promote proper
           drainage under the units and away from the unit out to a distance of 10 feet. Whether sod and
           soils are to be graded, removed or added in order to achieve this goal will be determined by
           the Contractor and approved by the COTR or his/her authorized representative.
               i. Swales or mild trenching away from the ten-foot drainage boundary to or toward a
                  natural drainage slope may be allowed at the discretion of the COTR or his/her
                  representative. Under no circumstances shall TASK 900 create an adverse „ponding‟ or
                  drainage problem to adjacent properties.
              ii. Slope correction or crowning beneath and away from the crawlspace to a minimum of 2
                  feet to allow proper drainage.
             iii. Prices Proposed shall be in units of cubic yards placed or „rearranged‟ or removed.
                  Contractor shall include within its proposal a method or procedure for confirmation and
                  verification by MEMA‟s inspecting representative to be used on site following such
                  work. (See Quote Items Z-4)

[Type text]
         (4) Installations of all utilities per jurisdictional code requirement; where no codes exist, refer to
             the latest International Residential Codes and National Electric Code. Base price shall include
             water, sewer and electrical lines installed past the „turn-downs‟ to a minimum of 5 feet. (Refer
             to Quote Items Y, Z & Z-1 regarding additional footages - This item includes some work that
             may not be able to be conducted prior to TASK 900).

  i. TASK 800: Foundations and Setup
       (1) The final phase of MAHP is to transition from the temporary, emergency housing portion of
           the program into permanent housing for those displaced families yet to find other means of
           long-term housing. In order to achieve this final mission of the program, offerings of
           homeownership will first be given the unit occupants, then others still displaced, whether by
           outright sale or via non-profits, local governments and state agencies desiring to assist those
           victims.
       (2) The purpose of this Task is to allow the temporary units to become permanent units for both
           renters and homeowners, on properties owned by the occupants or leased by others, and to
           meet all local regulations.
       (3) The Contractor shall include within its proposal, the full treatment by a reputable
           exterminator, of termites. Such service shall include certificate coverage transferrable to the
           unit‟s long-term occupants and renewable annually with transferability to any subsequent
           owners.
       (4) Some temporary units may be left in place as they were originally installed on a temporary
           basis; others cannot be relocated to other areas unless they are converted from manufactured,
           HUD-labeled housing to modular housing; others may be in certain flood zones that require a
           foundation or elevation specified by the local jurisdiction or FEMA. (Many temporary units
           were installed with above-ground sewer and hence must be reinstalled).
       (5) As various and unique circumstances and conditions exist with the properties of the project
           area, differing permanent setups for the units will also exist, i.e., floodplains, varying soils
           conditions, properties both owned and rented by occupants (private lots, commercial parks),
           etc.
       (6) The Contractor, in making written proposals for TASK 900 shall choose from two options in
           making those proposals:
               i. OPTION 1 - Accept and submit pricing proposals for MEMA‟s engineered designs and
                  specification for each type of foundation and unit type as described herein and labeled
                  as “Attachment „A‟, „B‟ and „C‟”, or (See item (5) iii)
              ii. OPTION 2 - As an alternate, Contractor may elect to engage a professional engineer
                  (PE) or architect possessing the proper discipline, who is registered within the State of
                  Mississippi to specify and design each type of foundation mentioned in (8)i.(7), for each
                  type of unit. Such proposal shall meet or exceed that of the manufacturers, if any and
                  shall further meet with the manufacturers‟ written approval.
                      1. All proposed designs submitted shall bear the „live‟ signature and seal of the
                          professional engineer or architect.
                      2. The Contractor‟s design must take into account any variable dissimilarity
                          between manufacturers of each unit type, particularly when designing the
                          „HUD-Set‟ as described.
                      3. All foundation designs submitted shall be assessed and reviewed by MEMA‟s
                          Engineer-of-Record for manufacturer compatibility as well as structural
                          soundness and wind loadings; the Engineer-of-Record will, within five working
                          days following the opening date and time complete his/her review. Should

[Type text]
                             nonconformances be found the set shall be returned to the submitting
                             Contracting firm for correction. The Contractor shall be required to re-submit
                             within a maximum of five working days from the time MEMA receives the
                             revisions. Contractor‟s engineer or architect‟s sealed and stamped calculations
                             shall also be included for all design elements of stress and/or loading factors.
                             The Alternate design(s) shall be based on the loads noted on MEMA‟s
                             recommended design(s) and further meet all applicable codes and jurisdictional
                             requirements.
                        4. Proposals and/or bids shall be submitted that comply with designs meeting 150
                             mph wind loadings in 3-second bursts.
                        5. Each design specification and drawing shall be labeled by unit type and
                             foundation type. Where applicable, name of manufacturer shall also be included.
                        6. Proposals and/or bids shall include the setup of the units upon the permanent
                             completed foundations and the proposal shall briefly describe the method chosen
                             to transfer and affix the units upon the permanent foundations. No skirting may
                             be required for units installed within a floodplain and Contractor‟s invoicing
                             shall not reflect such material & labor unless the COTR opts to use wooden
                             lattice.
                        7. As two of MEMA‟s foundation types may be utilized within certain floodplains,
                             Contractor shall submit add-on pricing for „HUD-Set‟ including design
                             modifications and requirements necessary to meet local and State floodplain
                             regulations.
                        8. No permanent installation within the MAHP will be set in Coastal High-Hazard
                             areas of the floodplain (V-Zones, floodways, etc.).
         (7) The Contractor shall propose and specify in writing the following three foundation types with
             alternates pricing to address the variable conditions set forth in (8)i.(9) when choosing
             OPTION 2:
                 i. “HUD Set” – The foundation design typically used in the temporary phase of the
                    MAHP. This type of foundation is to be used on rental properties, commercial parks and
                    may also be used upon properties owned by the occupants. This design is associated
                    with the “Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards 24 CFR 3280,
                    November 30, 2005 and Model Manufactured Home Installation Standards 24 CFR
                    3285, October 19, 2007”. This foundation design cannot be utilized in any floodplain
                    whereby a jurisdiction requires elevation unless additional design modifications and
                    requirements per local and State jurisdictions are met. The Contractor shall address
                    those requirements and submit a separate proposal for floodplain installations. This
                    foundation is not designed to elevate the units higher than 5 feet, 7 inches. All
                    foundations shall be affixed with „auger-type‟ anchoring straps to meet a minimum of
                    150 mph wind-loads in 3-second bursts.
                ii. “Chain Wall” – This typical, continuous concrete wall foundation design will be
                    specified in areas requiring conventional „stick-built‟ wood-framed homes or modular
                    housing as a result of zoning regulations, private covenants or other circumstances. If
                    other NFIP requirements are met, this design may also be utilized within flood zones
                    whereby a jurisdiction requires elevation. The contractor shall use the design loads that are
                    present on the (Attachment „B‟) State Fire Marshal approved manufacturers‟ drawings
                    to resist loads (i.e. point loads at the foundation where the shear walls are located when
                    addressing those requirements and submit a separate proposal for floodplain
                    installations. This foundation, shown in Attachment „B‟ is designed to elevate the units

[Type text]
                     no higher than 16 inches. For expediency in addressing the needs of the program, the
                     proposals requested shall specify a height of 16 inches with alternate design proposals
                     given in 8 inch intervals, up to a maximum of 48 inches. The 2006 IRC must be
                     followed in this design to allow the unit(s) to become modular compliant by definition
                     of the State Fire Marshal‟s Office.
               iii. “Wood Pile” – As the name implies, this foundation utilizes a series of wooden posts;
                     This foundation design typically is used within flood zones and is describe in
                     Attachment „C.‟
         (8) The intention of MEMA in funding this phase of the MAHP is that no unit shall be placed
             higher than 6 feet from the average ground level beneath the unit, without the expressed and
             written approval of MEMA. Requirements for floodplains other than mentioned involving
             utilities involve openings beneath the units to offset the hydrostatic pressure of floodwaters;
             the Contractor‟s proposals shall also include a deduction for skirting for all invoicing
             associated with the „HUD-Set‟ installations within floodplains.
         (9) Costing proposed by the Contractor for its engineered design shall be based upon the
             following variables:
                 i. Type and manufacturer of unit (Base costing for 1, 2 or 3 Bedroom Cottages at base
                     height specified), for new, HUD Code 3285 foundations, Temporary to Permanent in-
                     place of Floodplain-Modified “concrete block” foundations, “Chain Wall” or
                     „continuous concrete wall foundation” and the “Wood-Piling” foundations and all
                     Floodplain-compliant foundations requested. The base price quotation shall include all
                     labor, materials, permits, testing, utilities, drainage requirements and other incidentals
                     relative to the drawings and specifications set forth in this RFQ and within Attachments
                     „A‟, „B‟ and „C‟. Foundation depths below grade shall be as follows (Contractor shall
                     take into consideration in its proposals that uneven terrain may exist at some locations
                     and, although a base-price foundation may be ordered by MEMA, Contractor may
                     experience some sites where one or more portions of a foundation exceed the minimum;
                     in these cases, MEMA shall only pay for the base-price installation):
                         1. Base Foundation (pad) Depth below finish grade for new HUD Code
                             foundations shall be below removed organic material & loose soil or the depth
                             required by the regulating jurisdiction, whichever is ever more stringent
                         2. Base Foundation Depth below finish grade for “Chain-Wall” foundations shall
                             be twelve inches (12”) minimum below organic material & loose soil present or
                             the depth required by the regulating jurisdiction, whichever is ever more
                             stringent
                         3. Base Foundation Depth below undisturbed finish grade for “Wood-Piling”
                             foundations shall be as shown on attached plan set or the depth required by the
                             regulating jurisdiction, whichever ever more stringent
                         4. Base Foundation Depths for all proposed floodplain installations shall be
                             according to State and Local codes
                         5. In the event MEMA actually issues an order for deeper depths, MEMA and the
                             Contractor shall negotiate an adjusted price
                ii. Type of unit (1, 2 or 3 Bedroom Cottages specified), for transportation - Fixed-Fee per-
                     mile Pricing.
               iii. Elevation of unit, as determined by MEMA or required by floodplain regulations (this
                     variable is to be quoted including steps, utilities, and their elevation, etc.). This
                     variable addresses the height above the „Base-Price crawl-space‟ elevation in 8”
                     increments. Contractor shall perform all computations in writing, using manufacturer‟s

[Type text]
                     plans as well as measuring devices. MEMA‟s representative will then inform the COTR
                     of the average pier height required for unit leveling and/or in conformance with the
                     required Elevation Certificate and request the Work Order.
                         1. Elevation for the HUD Code installation shall be determined as the average
                              distance from the bottom of the below-grade footer pad to the bottom of the
                              metal I-Beam where each of the four outside corner piers will be located in
                              order to achieve the proper floor elevation.
                         2. Elevation for the “Chain-Wall” installation shall be determined as the average
                              distance from the bottom of the below-grade foundation wall to the bottom of the
                              lowest horizontal member of the Cottage at each of the four outside Cottage
                              corners will be located in order to achieve the proper floor elevation.
                              Contractor is reminded that the attached „Chain-Wall” plan set is engineered
                              for a sixteen inch 16” crawlspace (intended for an 18” sub-grade
                              crawlspace)and that the Contractor‟s base-price shall reflect same. An „add-on‟
                              alternate quote-item is provided an additional engineered proposal to bring the
                              foundation wall to an elevation allowing an 18” crawlspace area „at finished-
                              grade.‟
                         3. Elevation for the “Wood-Piling” installation shall be determined as the average
                              distance from the bottom of the lowest horizontal member of the Cottage at each
                              of the four outside corner where each of the four outside Cottage corners will be
                              located in order to achieve the proper floor elevation.
                         4. Elevations for all proposed floodplain installations shall be also determined
                              using benchmarks provided onsite by MEMA‟s surveying representatives for the
                              elevation certification process.
              iv.    The manufacturer's recommended designs (Attached to this RFP as „A‟, „B‟ & „C‟)
                     provided to MEMA, approved by the State Fire Marshal's office, includes notes stating
                     that if the developer would like to deviate from the recommended design that they are
                     allowed under certain conditions, which include but not limited to the following:
                         1. The alternate design must be sealed a Professional Engineer or Architect.
                         2. The alternate design must be based on the loads noted on the recommended
                              design.
                         3. The alternate design must be in accordance with the state and local codes.
               v.    Contractor‟s invoice related to the elevation shall reflect the base quote plus each 8”
                     increment above that base and remaining few inches, if any; it is understood by MEMA
                     and the COTR that the invoice may reflect several inches above the order due to the fact
                     the prices quoted are fixed in 8” increments. These potential discrepancies may be
                     allowed and payable, following on-site verification of the elevation by MEMA‟s
                     representative, following construction.
              vi.    UFAS-compliant handicap ramp for base installations or elevated installations is
                     required as opposed to steps quoted in base price (one ramp per cottage where
                     applicable.)
              vii.   As skirting is to be part of the Base-Price installation on the HUD Code foundation, it
                     should be noted a quote item is to be shown as an alternate item. The purpose is that
                     should any skirting be ordered for Cottages elevated higher than the Base installation,
                     the Contractor shall invoice by the total square footage necessary to install variable
                     skirting heights per Cottage type. Waste skirting material shall not be used in this
                     calculation nor shall it be billable.
