    Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements of the Department of Labor. If
there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the

higher wage rate. The Department will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the
Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes "helper" (or other classifications based on hours of
experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal
wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the
Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal
minimum wage rate which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question.

subcontract and any lower-tier contracts exceeding $100,000. All disclosure forms, but not certifications,
shall be forwarded from tier to tier until received by the Engineer.

    The Contractor, subcontractors and any lower-tier contractors shall file a disclosure form at the end of
each calendar quarter in which there occurs any event that requires disclosure or that materially affects the
accuracy of the information contained in any disclosure form previously filed by the Contractor,
subcontractors and any lower-tier contractors. An event that materially affects the accuracy of the
information reported includes:
        (1) A cumulative increase if $25,000 or more in the amount paid or expected to be paid for

2-1.02 DISADVANTAGED BUSINESS ENTERPRISE (DBE)
    This contract is subject to Part 26, Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations entitled "Participation by
Disadvantaged Business Enterprises in Department of Transportation Financial Assistance Programs." The
Regulations in their entirety are incorporated herein by this reference.
    The UDBE requirements are specified in Section 2-1.02B of these special provisions. Bidders shall be
fully informed respecting the requirements of the Regulations and Caltrans’ Disadvantaged Business
Enterprise (DBE) program developed pursuant to the Regulations; particular attention is directed to the
following matters:
   A. A DBE must be a small business concern as defined pursuant to Section 3 of the U.S. Small business Act
       and relevant regulations promulgated pursuant thereto.
   B. UDBE is a firm meeting the definition of a DBE as specified in 49 CFR and is one of the following
       groups:
       1. Black American
       2. Asian-Pacific American
       3. Native American
       4. Women
   C. A DBE may participate as a prime contractor, subcontractor, joint venture partner with a prime or
       subcontract, vendor of material or supplies, or as a trucking company.
   D. A UDBE bidder, not bidding as a joint venture with a non-DBE, will be required to document one or a
       combination of the following:
       1. The bidder is a UDBE and will meet the goal by performing work with its own forces.
       2. The bidder will meet the goal through work performed by UDBE subcontracts, suppliers or trucking
           companies.
       3. The bidder, prior to bidding, made adequate good faith efforts to meet the goal.
   E. A DBE joint venture partner must be responsible for specific contract items of work, or clearly defined
       portions thereof. Responsibility means actually performing, managing and supervising the work with its
       own forces. The DBE joint venture partner must share in the capital contribution, control, management,
       risks and profits of the joint venture commensurate with its ownership interest;
   F. A DBE must perform a commercially useful function, i.e., must be responsible for the execution of a
       distinct element of the work and must carry out its responsibility by actually performing, managing and
       supervising the work;
   G. DBEs must be certified by California Unified Certification Program (CUCP). Listings of DBEs certified
       by the CUCP are available from the following sources:
       1. The Caltran’s “Civil Rights” web site at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/bep
       2. The Caltran's DBE Directory. This Directory may be obtained from the Department of Transportation,
           Materiel Operations Branch, Publication Distribution Unit, 1900 Royal Oaks Drive, Sacramento,
           California 95815, Telephone: (916) 445-3520.
   H. Credit for materials or supplies purchased from DBEs will count towards DBE credit, and if a DBE is also
       a UDBE, purchases will count towards the UDBE goal under the following conditions:
       1. If the materials or supplies are obtained from a DBE manufacturer, count 100 percent of the cost of the
           materials or supplies. A DBE manufacturer is a firm that operates or maintains a factory or
           establishment that produces, on the premises, the materials, supplies, articles, or equipment required
           under the contract and of the general character described by the specifications.
       2. If the materials or supplies are purchased from a DBE regular dealer, count 60 percent of the cost of
           the materials or supplies. A DBE regular dealer is a firm that owns, operates or maintains a store,
           warehouse, or other establishment in which the materials, supplies, articles or equipment of the
           general character described by the specifications and required under the contract are bought, kept in
           stock, and regularly sold or leased to the public in the usual course of business. To be a DBE regular
           dealer, the firm must be an established, regular business that engages, as its principal business and
           under its own name, in the purchase and sale or lease of the products in question. A person may be a
           DBE regular dealer in such bulk items as petroleum products, steel, cement, gravel, stone, or asphalt
                                                       5
            without owning, operating, or maintaining a place of business as provided in this paragraph, if the
            person both owns and operates distribution equipment for the products. Any supplementing of regular
            dealers' own distribution equipment shall be by a long-term lease agreement and not on an ad hoc or
            contract-by-contract basis. Packagers, brokers, manufacturers' representatives, or other persons who
            arrange or expedite transactions are not DBE regular dealers within the meaning of this paragraph.
        3. If the DBE is neither a manufacturer nor a regular dealer, count only the entire amount of fees or
            commissions charged for assistance in the procurement of the materials and supplies, or fees or
            transportation charges for the delivery of materials or supplies required on a job site, provided the fees
            are reasonable and not excessive as compared with fees charged for similar services.
    I. Credit for DBE trucking companies will be as follows:
        1. The DBE must be responsible for the management and supervision of the entire trucking operation for
            which it is responsible on a particular contract.
        2. The DBE must itself own and operate at least one fully licensed, insured, and operational truck used
            on the contract.
        3. The DBE receives credit for the total value of the transportation services it provides on the contract
            using trucks it owns, insures, and operates using drivers it employs.
        4. The DBE may lease trucks from another DBE firm including an owner-operator, who is certified as a
            DBE. The DBE who leases trucks from another DBE receives credit for the total value of the
            transportation services the lessee DBE provides on the contract.
        5. The DBE may also lease trucks from a non-DBE firm including from an owner-operator. The DBE
            who leases trucks from a non-DBE is entitled to credit only for the fee or commission it receives as a
            result of the lease arrangement. The DBE does not receive credit for the total value of the
            transportation services provided by the lessee, since these services are not provided by a DBE;
        6. For the purposes of this paragraph, a lease must indicate that the DBE has exclusive use of and control
            over the truck. This does not preclude the leased truck from working for others during the term of the
            lease with the consent of the DBE, so long as the lease gives the DBE absolute priority for use of the
            leased truck. Leased trucks must display the name and identification number of the DBE.
    J. Bidders are encouraged to use services offered by financial institutions owned and controlled by DBEs.

2-1.02A UDBE GOAL

    The Underutilized Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (UDBE) goal for this project is 5.4 percent.

    It is the bidder’s responsibility to verify that the firm is certified as of the date of bid opening. Listings of
DBEs certified by the CUCP are available at http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/bep. Click the “Find a Certified
Firm” link.

2-1.02B UDBE AND DBE COMMITMENT SUBMITTALS
    Bidders shall submit UDBE information on the “LOCAL AGENCY BIDDER/PROPOSER – UDBE
COMMITMENT” form included in the bid. If the form is not submitted with the bid, remove the form from
the bid package before submitting the bid.
    If the UDBE commitment is not submitted with the bid, the apparent successful bidder (low bidder), the
second low bidder, and the third low bidder must complete and submit UDBE commitment to the County of
Humboldt, Department of Public Works, 1106 Second Street, Eureka, CA 95501. The UDBE commitment
must be received by the County of Humboldt no later than 4:00 p.m. on the 4th business day after bid
opening. Other bidders do not need to submit UDBE commitment unless requested to do so by the County of
Humboldt.
    It is the bidder’s responsibility to make enough work available to UDBEs and to select those portions of
the work or material needs consistent with the available UDBEs to meet the goal for UDBE participation or
to provide information to establish that, prior to bidding, the bidder made adequate good faith efforts to do
so.



                                                          6
    Bidders shall submit written confirmation from each UDBE stating that it is participating in the contract.
Bidders shall include confirmation with the UDBE commitment submittal. A copy of a UDBE’s quote will
serve as written confirmation that the UDBE is participating in the contract.
    Failure of the bidder to submit the required UDBE commitment within the time specified herein will be
grounds for finding the bid nonresponsive.
    If the bidder has not met the UDBE goal, the bidder must submit good faith efforts (GFE) documentation
with the bid to establish that, before the bid, the bidder made adequate GFE to meet the goal. Only GFE
directed towards obtaining participation by UDBEs will be considered. If the bidder does not submit GFE
documentation with the bidder’s bid, this documentation must be received by the County of Humboldt no
later than 4:00 p.m. on the 4th business day after bid opening.
    Bidders are cautioned that even though their “LOCAL AGENCY BIDDER – UDBE COMMITMENT”
form indicates they will meet the UDBE goal, they should also submit their GFE documentation, within the
time specified herein, to protect their eligibility for award of the contract in the event the County finds that
the goal has not been met.
    If it is determined that GFE documentation is needed to determine a bidder’s eligibility for award, failure
of the bidder to have submitted the GFE documentation by the time specified herein will be grounds for
finding the bid or proposal nonresponsive.
    The GFE documentation must include the following information and supporting documents, as
necessary:
    A. Items of work the bidder has made available to UDBE firms. Identify those items of work the bidder might
         otherwise perform with its own forces and those items that have been broken down into economically
         feasible units to facilitate UDBE participation. For each item listed, show the dollar value and percentage
         of the total contract. It is the bidder’s responsibility to demonstrate that sufficient work to meet the goal
         was made available to UDBE firms.
    B. The names of certified UDBEs and the dates on which they were solicited to bid on the project. Include
         the items of work offered. Describe the methods used for following up initial solicitations to determine
         with certainty if the UDBEs were interested, and the dates of the follow up. Attach supporting documents
         such as copies of letters, memos, facsimiles sent, telephone logs, telephone billing statements, and other
         evidence of solicitation. Bidders are reminded to solicit certified UDBEs through all reasonable and
         available means and provide sufficient time to allow UDBEs to respond.
    C. For each item of work made available, the UDBEs that provided quotes, the selected firm and its status as
         a UDBE, the price quote for each firm, and the name, address and telephone number for each firm. If the
         firm selected for the item is not a UDBE, provide the reasons for the selection.
    D. The names and dates of each publication in which a request for UDBE participation for the project was
         placed by the bidder. Attach copies of the published advertisements.
    E. The names of agencies and the dates on which they were contacted to provide assistance in contacting,
         recruiting and using UDBE firms. If the agencies were contacting in writing, provide copies of
         supporting documents.
    F. Descriptions of the efforts made to provide interested UDBEs with adequate information about the plans,
         specifications, and requirements of the contract to assist them in responding to a solicitation. If the bidder
         has provided information, identify the name of the UDBE assisted, the nature of the information
         provided, and date of contact. Provide copies of supporting documents, as appropriate.
    G. Descriptions of efforts made to assist interested UDBEs in obtaining bonding, lines of credit, insurance,
         necessary equipment, supplies and materials (excluding supplies and equipment which the UDBE
         subcontractor purchases or leases from the prime contractor or its affiliate). If such assistance was
         provided by the bidder, identify the name of the UDBE assisted, nature of the assistance offered, and
         date. Provide copies of supporting documents, as appropriate.
    H. Any additional data to support a demonstration of GFE.

    Submit the DBE Information on the “Local Agency Bidder – DBE Information” form included with the
bid. If the form is not submitted with the bid, remove the form from the Proposal before submitting the bid.
The purpose of the form is to collect data required under 49 CFR 26. Even if no DBE participation will be
reported, the successful bidder must complete and return the form.

                                                          7
    If the DBE Information is not submitted with the bid, the apparent successful bidder (low bidder), the
second low bidder, and the third low bidder must complete and submit the DBE Information to:

Humboldt County
Department of Public Works
1106 Second Street
Eureka, CA 95501

    The DBE Information must be received by the Agency no later than 4:00 p.m. on the 4th business day
after bid opening. Other bidders do not need to submit DBE Information unless requested to do so by the
Agency. If requested by the Agency, the DBE Information of the other bidders must be received by the
Agency within 4 business days of the request unless a later time is authorized by the Agency.
    The bidder's "LOCAL AGENCY BIDDER - DBE INFORMATION" form should include the names,
addresses and phone numbers of DBE firms that will participate, with a complete description of work or
supplies to be provided by each, and the dollar value of each DBE transaction. When 100 percent of a
contract item of work is not to be performed or furnished by a DBE, a description of the exact portion of that
work to be performed or furnished by that DBE should be included in the DBE information, including the
planned location of that work. A bidder certified as a DBE should describe the work it has committed to
performing with its own forces as well as any other work that it has committed to be performed by DBE
subcontractors, suppliers and trucking companies.
    The bidder is encouraged to provide written confirmation from each DBE that is participating in the
contract. A copy of a DBE's quote will serve as written confirmation that the DBE is participating in the
contract. If a DBE is participating as a joint venture partner, the bidder is encouraged to submit a copy of the
joint venture agreement.

    It is the policy of the County of Humboldt to ensure that DBEs, as defined in 49 CFR Part 26, have
an equal opportunity to receive and participate in DOT-assisted contracts. It is also our policy:

       To ensure nondiscrimination in the award and administration of DOT-assisted contracts;

       To create a level playing field on which DBEs can compete fairly for DOT-assisted contracts;

       To ensure that the DBE Program is narrowly tailored in accordance with applicable law;

       To ensure that only firms that fully meet 49 CFR Part 26 eligibility standards are permitted to
       participate as DBEs;

       To help remove barriers to the participation of DBEs in DOT-assisted contracts; and

         To assist the development of firms that can compete successfully in the market place outside the
         DBE Program.

3-1.01A AWARD OF CONTRACT
    The award of contract, if it be awarded, will be to the lowest responsible Bidder whose proposal
complies with all the requirements prescribed.

specified above within which the award of contract may be made shall be subject to extension for such
further period as may be agreed upon in writing between the Department and the bidder concerned. All bids
will be compared on the basis of the Engineer's Estimate of the quantities of work to be done.

     The proposal guaranties accompanying the proposals of the first, second, and third lowest responsible
bidders will be retained until the contract has been fully executed, after which all such proposal guaranties,
except bidder's bonds and any guaranties which have been forfeited, will be returned to the respective
bidders whose proposals they accompany. The proposal guaranties, other than bidder's bonds, submitted by
all other unsuccessful bidders will be returned upon determination, by the Public Works Department, of the
first, second, and third lowest responsible bidders.

    Any addenda or bulletins issued during the time of bidding, or forming a part of the documents issued to
the Bidder for the preparation of his bid, shall be covered in the bid, and shall become a part of the
Agreement.

    No person, firm or corporation shall be allowed to make or file, or be interested in, more than one bid for
the same work, unless alternate bids are called for. A person, firm, or corporation who has submitted a
subproposal to a Bidder, or who has quoted prices on materials to a Bidder, is not thereby disqualified from
submitting a subproposal or quoting prices to other Bidders.

3-1.02 EXECUTION OF CONTRACT
    The form of Agreement which the successful Bidder, as Contractor, will be required to execute, is
included in the contract documents and should be carefully examined by the bidder. The agreement and

Payment Bond shall comply with Section 3248 of the Civil Code of the State of California. The Payment
Bond and the faithful Performance Bond shall each be in a form which is satisfactory to the County Counsel
of the County of Humboldt. A copy of an acceptable format is attached to the Agreement forms included in
the proposal section of these specifications.

CONTRACTOR is not entitled to any rights, unless certificates of insurance, or other sufficient proof that
the following provisions have been complied with, and such certificate(s) are filed with the Clerk of the
Humboldt County Board of Supervisors.

    II. Without limiting Contractor’s indemnification provided herein, Contractor shall and shall require
any of its subcontractors to take out and maintain, throughout the period of this Agreement, the following
policies of insurance placed with insurers with a current A.M. Bests rating of no less than A:VII or its
equivalent against injury/death to persons or damage to property which may arise from or in connection with
the activities hereunder of Contractor, its agents, employees or subcontractors:

Services Office Commercial General Liability coverage (occurrence from CG 0001), in an amount of
$1,000,000 per occurrence. If work involves explosive, underground or collapse risks, XCU must be
included. If a general aggregate limit is used, either the general aggregate limit shall apply separately to this

endorsed with, the following provisions:

                  (1)     The County, its officers, employees and agents, are covered as additional insured for

                (2)     The policy shall not be canceled or materially reduced in coverage without thirty (30)
days prior written notice (10 days for non-payment of the premium) to County by certified mail.

                 (3)     The inclusion of more than one insured shall not operate to impair the rights of one
insured against another insured, and the coverage afforded shall apply as though separate policies had been
issued to each insured, but the inclusion of more than one insured shall not operate to increase the limits of
the insurer’s liability.

                (4)    For claims related to this project, the Contractor’s insurance is primary coverage to
the County, and any insurance or self-insurance programs maintained by the County are excess to
Contractor’s insurance and will not be called upon to contribute with it.

               (5)      Any failure to comply with reporting or other provisions of the parties, including
breach of warranties, shall not affect coverage provided to County, its officers, employees, and agents.

coverage without thirty(30) days prior written notice (10 days for non-payment of premium) to County by
certified mail.

approved by the County’s Risk Manager or County Counsel. Any deductible or self-insured retention over
$100,000 shall be disclosed to and approved by County. If Contractor does not keep all required policies in
full force and effect, County may, in addition to other remedies under this Agreement, take out the necessary
insurance, and Contractor agrees to pay the cost of said insurance.

   The County may elect to treat a failure to maintain the requisite insurances as a breach of
contract/agreement and terminate the contract/agreement as provided herein.

3-1.04 HOLD HARMLESS / INDEMNIFICATION CLAUSE
        Contractor shall indemnify and hold harmless County and its Board, officers, officials, employees,
and volunteers from and against all claims, damages, losses, and expenses including attorney fees arising out

SECTION 4. BEGINNING OF WORK, TIME OF COMPLETION AND LIQUIDATED
DAMAGES

   Attention is directed to the provisions in Section 8-1.03, "Beginning of Work", Section 8-1.06, "Time of

                                              30        WORKING DAYS

Tabulation of working days shall begin on the fifteenth calendar day after execution of the contract by the

Liquidated Damages are based on the estimated cost of field construction engineering. The sum is
calculated as 15 percent of the Engineer’s Estimate divided by the number of working days.

    Neither the Contract, nor any moneys due or to become due under the Contract, may be assigned by the
Contractor without the prior consent of the Contractor's surety or sureties, unless such surety or sureties have
waived their right to notice of assignment. The performance of the Contract may not be assigned without
prior written consent of the County of Humboldt.

of Supervisors has accepted the project, the Contractor shall be entitled to the balance due for all work
performed under the contract, provided that all claims for Labor and Materials have been paid, and that no
                                                     11

       4. Excavations parallel to the lane for the purpose of pavement widening or reconstruction.
       5. Excavations in side slopes, where the slope is steeper than 4:1 (horizontal:vertical).
       6. Excavations protected by existing barrier or railing.

   B. Temporarily Unprotected Permanent Obstacles-The work includes the installation of a fixed
      obstacle together with a protective system, such as a sign structure together with protective
      railing, and the Contractor elects to install the obstacle prior to installing the protective system;
      or the Contractor, for the Contractor's convenience and with permission of the Engineer, removes

                                                     12

      provisions.

     The approach end of temporary railing (Type K), installed in conformance with the provisions in this
section "Public Safety" and in Section 7-1.09, "Public Safety," of the Standard Specifications, shall be
offset a minimum of 15 feet from the edge of the traffic lane open to public traffic. The temporary
railing shall be installed on a skew toward the edge of the traffic lane of not more than one foot
transversely to 10 feet longitudinally with respect to the edge of the traffic lane. If the 15-foot minimum
offset cannot be achieved, the temporary railing shall be installed on the 10 to 1 skew to obtain the
maximum available offset between the approach end of the railing and the edge of the traffic lane, and
an array of temporary crash cushion modules shall be installed at the approach end of the temporary
railing.
     Except for installing, maintaining and removing traffic control devices, whenever work is performed
or equipment is operated in the following work areas, the Contractor shall close the adjacent traffic lane
unless otherwise provided in the Standard Specifications and these special provisions:

          Approach Speed of Public Traffic                             Work Areas
                  (Posted Limit)
                 (Miles Per Hour)
       Over 45                                       Within 6 feet of a traffic lane but not on a

    The lane closure provisions of this section shall not apply if the work area is protected by permanent
or temporary railing or barrier.
    When traffic cones or delineators are used to delineate a temporary edge of a traffic lane, the line of
cones or delineators shall be considered to be the edge of the traffic lane, however, the Contractor shall
not reduce the width of an existing lane to less than 10 feet without written approval from the Engineer.
    When work is not in progress on a trench or other excavation that required closure of an adjacent
lane, the traffic cones or portable delineators used for the lane closure shall be placed off of and adjacent
to the edge of the traveled way. The spacing of the cones or delineators shall be not more than the
spacing used for the lane closure.
    Suspended loads or equipment shall not be moved nor positioned over public traffic or pedestrians.
    Full compensation for conforming to the provisions in this section "Public Safety," including
furnishing and installing temporary railing (Type K) and temporary crash cushion modules, shall be
considered as included in the contract prices paid for the various items of work involved and no
additional compensation will be allowed therefor.

5-1.04 BUY AMERICA REQUIREMENTS
    Attention is directed to the “Buy America” requirements of the Title 23 United States Code, Section 313
and the regulations adopted pursuant thereto. In accordance with said law and regulations, all manufacturing
processes for steel and iron materials furnished for incorporation into the work on this project shall occur in
the United States; with the exception that pig iron and processed, pelletized and reduced iron ore
manufactured outside of the United States may be used in the domestic manufacturing process for such steel
and iron materials. The application of coatings, such as epoxy coating, galvanizing, painting, and any other

                                                      13
coating that protects or enhances the value of such steel or iron materials shall be considered a
manufacturing process subject to the “Buy America” requirements.
    A Certificate of Compliance, conforming to the provisions in Section 6-1.07, Certificates of Compliance,
of the Standard Specifications, shall be furnished for steel and iron materials. The certificates, in addition to
certifying that the materials comply with the specifications, shall also specifically certify that all
manufacturing processes for the materials occurred in the United States, except for the exceptions allowed
herein. The requirements imposed by said law and regulations do not prevent a minimal use of foreign steel
and iron materials if the total combined cost of such materials used does not exceed one-tenth of one percent
(0.1%) of the total contract cost or $2,500, whichever is greater. The Contractor shall furnish the Engineer
acceptable documentation of the quantity and value of any foreign steel and iron prior to incorporating such
materials into the work.

5-1.05 REMOVAL OF ASBESTOS AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
    When the presence of asbestos or hazardous substances are not shown on the plans or indicated in
the specifications and the Contractor encounters materials which the Contractor reasonably believes to
be asbestos or a hazardous substance as defined in Section 25914.1 of the Health and Safety Code, and
the asbestos or hazardous substance has not been rendered harmless, the Contractor may continue work
in unaffected areas reasonably believed to be safe. The Contractor shall immediately cease work in the
affected area and report the condition to the Engineer in writing.

   In conformance with Section 25914.1 of the Health and Safety Code, removal of asbestos or hazardous
substances including exploratory work to identify and determine the extent of the asbestos or hazardous
substance will be performed by separate contract.

    If delay of work in the area delays the current controlling operation, the delay will be considered a right
of way delay and the Contractor will be compensated for the delay in conformance with the provisions in
Section 8-1.09, "Right of Way Delays," of the Standard Specifications.

5-1.06 SUBCONTRACTOR AND DBE RECORDS
    The Contractor shall maintain records showing the name and business address of each first-tier
subcontractor. The records shall also show the name and business address of every DBE subcontractor, DBE
vendor of materials and DBE trucking company, regardless of tier. The records shall show the date of
payment and the total dollar figure paid to all of these firms. DBE prime contractors shall also show the date
of work performed by their own forces along with the corresponding dollar value of the work.
    Upon completion of the contract, a summary of these records shall be prepared on “Final Report –
Utilization of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises - (DBE), First-Tier Subcontractors” (Exhibit 17-F/Form
CEM-2402) and certified correct by the Contractor or his authorized representative, and shall be furnished to
the Engineer. The form shall be furnished to the Engineer within 90 days from the date of contract
acceptance. The amount of $10,000 will be withheld from payment until a satisfactory form is submitted.
    Prior to the fifteenth of each month, the Contractor shall submit documentation to the Engineer showing
the amount paid to DBE trucking companies. The Contractor shall also obtain and submit documentation to
the Engineer showing the amount paid by DBE trucking companies to all firms, including owner-operators,
for the leasing of trucks. If the DBE leases trucks from a non-DBE, the Contactor may count only the fee or
commission the DBE receives as a result of the lease arrangement.
    The Contractor shall also obtain and submit documentation to the Engineer showing the truck number,
owner's name, California Highway Patrol CA number, and if applicable, the DBE certification number of the
owner of the truck for all trucks used during that month. This documentation shall be submitted on "Monthly
DBE Trucking Verification" Form CEM-2404(F).

5-1.07 DBE CERTIFICATION STATUS
    If a DBE subcontractor is decertified during the life of the project, the decertified subcontractor shall
notify the Contractor in writing with the date of decertification. If a subcontractor becomes a certified DBE
during the life of the project, the subcontractor shall notify the Contractor in writing with the date of
certification. The Contractor shall furnish the written documentation to the Engineer.
    Upon completion of the contract, “Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) Certification Status
Change” Form CEM-2403(F) indicating the DBE’s existing certification status shall be signed and certified
correct by the Contractor. The certified form shall be furnished to the Engineer within 90 days from the date
of contract acceptance.

5-1.08 PERFORMANCE OF UDBES
    The UDBEs listed by the Contractor in response to the provisions in Section 2-1.02B, “UDBE and DBE
Commitment Submittals,” and Section 3, “Award and Execution of Contract,” of these special provisions,
which are determined by the Agency to be certified DBEs, shall perform the work and supply the materials
for which they are listed, unless the Contractor has received prior written authorization to perform the work
with other forces or to obtain the materials from other sources.
    Authorization to use other forces or sources of materials may be requested for the following reasons:
    A. The listed UDBE, after having had a reasonable opportunity to do so, fails or refuses to execute a
         written contract, when such written contract, based upon the general terms, conditions, plans and
         specifications for the project, or on the terms of such subcontractor’s or supplier’s written bid, is
         presented by the Contractor.
    B. The listed UDBE becomes bankrupt or insolvent.
    C. The listed UDBE fails or refuses to perform the subcontract or furnish the listed materials.
    D. The Contractor stipulated that a bond was a condition of executing a subcontract and the listed UDBE
         subcontractor fails or refuses to meet the bond requirements of the Contractor.
    E. The work performed requires a contractors license and the UDBE does not have a valid contractors
         license under Contractors License Law.
    F. The work performed by the listed UDBE subcontractor is substantially unsatisfactory and is not in
         substantial conformance with the plans and specifications, or the subcontractor is substantially
         delaying or disrupting the progress of the work.
    In conformance with the Federal DBE regulations Sections 26.53(f)(1) and 26.53(f)(2) Part 26, Title 49
CFR:
    A. The Contractor shall not terminate for convenience a UDBE subcontractor listed in response to
         Section 2-1.02B, “UDBE Commitment Submittal,” of these special provisions and then perform that
         work with its own forces, or those of an affiliate without the prior written consent of the Engineer.
    B. If a UDBE subcontractor is terminated or fails to complete its work for any reason, the Contractor
         will be required to make good faith efforts to substitute another UDBE subcontractor for the original
         UDBE subcontractor, to the extent needed to meet the contract goal. Good faith efforts must adhere
         to Section 2-1.02B, “UDBE Commitment Submittal” of these special provisions.
    The requirement in Section 2-1.02A, “UDBE Goal,” of these special provisions that UDBEs must be
certified on the date bids are opened does not apply to UDBE substitutions. However, replacement UDBEs
must be certified at the time the Contractor requests substitution.
    The Contractor shall not be entitled to any payment for such work or material unless it is performed or
supplied by the listed UDBE or by other forces (including those of the Contractor) pursuant to prior written
authorization of the Engineer.

5-1.09 PERFORMANCE OF SUBCONTRACTORS AND SUPPLIERS
    The subcontractors listed by the Contractor in conformance with Section 2-1.054, “Required Listing of
Proposed Subcontractors,” of the Standard Specifications, shall perform the work and supply the materials
for which they are listed, unless the Contractor has received prior written authorization to perform the work
with other forces or to obtain the materials from other sources.

                                                     15
    The Contractor should notify the Engineer in writing of any changes to its anticipated subcontractor
participation. This notice should be provided prior to the commencement of that portion of the work.

5-1.10 SUBCONTRACTING
     Attention is directed to the provisions in Section 8-1.01, "Subcontracting," and Section 2, "Proposal
Requirements and Conditions," and Section 3, "Award and Execution of Contract," of the Standard
Specifications, and these special provisions.
     Pursuant to the provisions in Section 1777.1 of the Labor Code, the Labor Commissioner publishes and

    The provisions in the third paragraph of Section 8-1.01, "Subcontracting," of the Standard
Specifications, that the Contractor shall perform with the Contractor's own organization contract work
amounting to not less than 50 percent of the original contract price, (is or is not) changed by the Federal Aid
requirement specified under "Required Contract Provisions Federal-Aid Construction Contracts" in Section
14 of these special provisions that the Contractor perform not less than 30 percent of the original contract
work with the Contractor's own organization.
    Each subcontract and any lower tier subcontract that may in turn be made shall include the "Required
Contract Provisions Federal-Aid Construction Contracts" in Section 14 of these special provisions.
Noncompliance shall be corrected. Payment for subcontracted work involved will be withheld from progress
payments due, or to become due, until correction is made. Failure to comply may result in termination of the
contract.

5-1.11 PROMPT PROGRESS PAYMENT TO SUBCONTRACTORS
    A prime contractor or subcontractor shall pay to any subcontractor not later than 10 days of receipt of
each progress payment in accordance with the provision in Section 7108.5 of the California Business and
Professions Code concerning prompt payment to subcontractors. The 10-day period is applicable unless a
longer period is agreed to in writing. Any delay or postponement of payment over 30 days may take place
only for good cause and with the agency’s prior written approval. Any violation of Section 7108.5 shall
subject the violating contractor or subcontractor to the penalties, sanctions, and other remedies of that
Section. This requirement shall not be construed to limit or impair any contractual, administrative, or
judicial remedies, otherwise available to the contractor or subcontractor in the event of a dispute involving
late payment or nonpayment by the contractor, deficient subcontractor performance, and/or noncompliance
by a subcontractor. This clause applies to both DBE and non-DBE subcontractors.

5-1.12 PROMPT PAYMENT OF WITHHELD FUNDS TO SUBCONTRACTORS
    Attention is directed to Section 9-1.06, "Partial Payments," 9-1.065, “Payment of Withheld Funds,” and
9-1.07, "Payment After Acceptance," of the Standard Specifications and these special provisions.

    The agency shall hold retainage from the prime contractor and shall make prompt and regular
incremental acceptances of portions, as determined by the agency of the contract work and pay retainage to
the prime contractor based on these acceptances. The prime contractor or subcontractor shall return all
monies withheld in retention from all subcontractors within 30 days after receiving payment for work
satisfactorily completed and accepted including incremental acceptances of portions of the contract work by
the agency. Any delay or postponement of payment may take place only for good cause and with the
agency’s prior written approval. Any violation of these provisions shall subject the violating prime
contractor to the penalties, sanctions, and other remedies specified in Section 7108.5 of the California
Business and Professions Code. This requirement shall not be construed to limit or impair any contractual,
administrative, or judicial remedies, otherwise available to the contractor or subcontractor in the event of: a

                                                      16
dispute involving late payment or nonpayment by the contractor; deficient subcontractor performance;
and/or noncompliance by a subcontractor. This clause applies to both DBE and non-DBE subcontractors.

5-1.13 PAYMENTS
    Attention is directed to Section 9-1.06, "Partial Payments," and 9-1.07, "Payment After Acceptance," of
the Standard Specifications and these special provisions.

    No partial payment will be made for any materials on hand which are furnished but not incorporated in
the work.

      courses, watercourses, and storm drain inlets unless approved
   3. If outside the floodplain, at least 50 feet from concentrated flows of storm water, drainage
      courses, watercourses, and storm drain inlets unless approved

   Remove and dispose of deposited solids from sediment traps under "Solid Waste" of these special
provisions unless the Engineer approves another method.
   Liquid waste may require testing to determine hazardous material content before disposal.
   Drilling fluids and residue must be disposed of outside the highway right-of-way.
   If an approved location is available within the job site, fluids and residue exempt under California
Code of Regulations, Title 23, Section 2511(g) may be dried by evaporation in a leak proof container.
Dispose of remaining solid waste under "Solid Waste" of these special provisions.

                                         Non-Storm Water Management
   Water Control and Conservation
    Manage water used for work activities to prevent erosion or discharge of pollutants into storm drain
systems or watercourses. Obtain approval before washing anything at the job site with water that could
discharge into a storm drain system or watercourse. Report discharges immediately.
    If water is used at the job site, implement water conservation practices. Inspect irrigation areas.
Adjust watering schedules to prevent erosion, excess watering, or runoff. Shut off water source to
broken lines, sprinklers, or valves, and repair breaks within 24 hours. If possible, reuse water from
waterline flushing for landscape irrigation. Sweep and vacuum paved areas; do not wash them with
water.
    Direct job site water runoff, including water from water line repair, to areas where it can infiltrate
into the ground and not enter storm drain systems or watercourses. Do not allow spilled water to escape
water truck filling areas. If possible, direct water from off-site sources around the job site. Minimize the
contact of off-site water with job site water.

   Illegal Connection and Discharge Detection and Reporting
    Inspect the job site and the site perimeter before starting work for evidence of illegal connections,
discharges, or dumping. After starting work, inspect the job site and perimeter on a daily schedule.
    Whenever illegal connections, discharges, or dumping are discovered, notify the Engineer
immediately. Take no further action unless ordered by the Engineer. Assume unlabeled or
unidentifiable material is hazardous.
    Look for the following evidence of illegal connections, discharges, or dumping:

   1. Debris or trash piles
   2. Staining or discoloration on pavement or soils
   3. Pungent odors coming from drainage systems

   The WPC Manager must inspect vehicles and equipment at the job site for leaks and spills on a daily
schedule. Operators must inspect vehicles and equipment each day of use.
   If leaks cannot be repaired immediately, remove the vehicle or equipment from the job site.

   Material and Equipment Used Over Water
    Place drip pans and absorbent pads under vehicles or equipment used over water. Keep an adequate
supply of spill cleanup material with the vehicle or equipment. If the vehicle or equipment will be idle
for more than one hour, place drip pans or plastic sheeting under the vehicle or equipment on docks,
barges, or other surfaces over water.
    Furnish watertight curbs or toe boards on barges, platforms, docks, or other surfaces over water to
contain material, debris, and tools. Secure material to prevent spills or discharge into water due to wind.

   Structure Removal Over or Adjacent to Water
   Do not allow demolished material to enter storm water systems or watercourses. Use approved
covers and platforms to collect debris. Use attachments on equipment to catch debris on small
demolition activities. Empty debris catching devices daily and handle debris under "Waste
Management" of these special provisions.
   The WPC Manager must inspect demolition sites within 50 feet of storm water systems or

    The work for which this proposal is submitted is for construction in accordance with the special provisions
(including the payment of not less than the State general prevailing wage rates or Federal minimum wage rates),
the project plans described above, including any addenda thereto, the contract annexed hereto and also in
accordance with the California Department of Transportation Standard Plans dated MAY, 2006, the Standard
Specifications dated MAY, 2006, and the Labor Surcharge and Equipment Rental Rates in effect at the time the
work is performed.

    Bids are to be submitted for the entire work. The amount of the bid for comparison purposes will be the
total of all items.

    The bidder shall set forth for each unit basis item of work a unit price and a total for the item, and for each
lump sum item a total for the item, all in clearly legible figures in the respective spaces provided for that
purpose. In the case of unit basis items, the amount set forth under the "Item Total" column shall be the product
of the unit price bid and the estimated quantity for the item.
    In case of discrepancy between the unit price and the total set forth for a unit basis item, the unit price shall
prevail, except as provided in (a) or (b), as follows:

    (a) If the amount set forth as a unit price is unreadable or otherwise unclear, or is omitted, or is the same as
        the amount as the entry in the item total column, then the amount set forth in the item total column for
        the item shall prevail and shall be divided by the estimated quantity for the item and the price thus
        obtained shall be the unit price;

    (b) (Decimal Errors) If the product of the entered unit price and the estimated quantity is exactly off by a
        factor of ten, one hundred, etc., or one-tenth, or one-hundredth, etc. from the entered total, the
        discrepancy will be resolved by using the entered unit price or item total, whichever most closely
        approximates percentagewise the unit price or item total in the County of Humboldt’s Final Estimate of
        cost.



                                                                  72
    If both the unit price and the item total are unreadable or otherwise unclear, or are omitted, the bid may be
deemed irregular. Likewise if the item total for a lump sum item is unreadable or otherwise unclear, or is
omitted, the bid may be deemed irregular unless the project being bid has only a single item and a clear, readable
total bid is provided.

    Symbols such as commas and dollar signs will be ignored and have no mathematical significance in
establishing any unit price or item total or lump sums. Written unit prices, item totals and lump sums will be
interpreted according to the number of digits and, if applicable, decimal placement. Cents symbols also have no
significance in establishing any unit price or item total since all figures are assumed to be expressed in dollars
and/or decimal fractions of a dollar. Bids on lump sum items shall be item totals only; if any unit price for a
lump sum item is included in a bid and it differs from the item total, the items total shall prevail.

    The foregoing provisions for the resolution of specific irregularities cannot be so comprehensive as to cover
every omission, inconsistency, error or other irregularity which may occur in a bid. Any situation not
specifically provided for will be determined in the discretion of the County of Humboldt, and that discretion will
be exercised in the manner deemed by the County of Humboldt to best protect the public interest in the prompt
and economical completion of the work. The decision of the County of Humboldt respecting the amount of a
bid, or the existence or treatment of an irregularity in a bid, shall be final.

    If this proposal shall be accepted and the undersigned shall fail to enter into the contract and furnish the
2 bonds in the sums required by the State Contract Act, with surety satisfactory to the County of Humboldt,
within 8 days, not including Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays, after the bidder has received notice from the
County of Humboldt that the contract has been awarded, the County of Humboldt may, at its option, determine
that the bidder has abandoned the contract, and thereupon this proposal and the acceptance thereof shall be null
and void and the forfeiture of the security accompanying this proposal shall operate and the same shall be the
property of the County of Humboldt.

    The undersigned, as bidder, declares that the only persons or parties interested in this proposal as principals
are those named herein; that this proposal is made without collusion with any other person, firm, or corporation;
that he has carefully examined the location of the proposed work, the annexed proposed form of contract, and
the plans therein referred to; and he proposes, and agrees if this proposal is accepted, that he will contract with
the County of Humboldt, in the form of the copy of the contract annexed hereto, to provide all necessary
machinery, tools, apparatus and other means of construction, and to do all the work and furnish all the materials
specified in the contract, in the manner and time therein prescribed, and according to the requirements of the
Engineer as therein set forth, and that he will take in full payment therefor the following prices, to wit:

        CONTRACTOR'S CERTIFICATE REGARDING WORKER'S COMPENSATION


   Labor Code Section 3700.

   "Every employer except the State and all political subdivisions or institutions thereof, shall secure the
payment of compensation in one or more of the foregoing ways:

         A.   By being insured against liability to pay compensation by one or more insurers duly
              authorized to write compensation insurance in this State.

         B.   By securing from the Director of Industrial Relations a certificate of consent of self-

              Industrial Relations of ability to self-insure and to pay any compensation that may
              become due to his employees."

    I am aware of the provisions of Section 3700 of the Labor Code which requires every employer to be insured
against liability for worker's compensation or to undertake self-insurance in accordance with the provisions of
that code, and that I will comply with such provisions before commencing the performance of the work of this
