        asbestos on the surfaces above the control room and the removal of ~ 250 linear feet of
        50 – 80% chrysotile asbestos HVAC duct insulation located above the ceiling on the
        mezzanine level that runs the entire length of the powerplant.
        1.      The 8% chrysotile asbestos containing trowel-on material condition ranges from
                damaged, cracked, poor to good. It is located directly above the control room and
                will require the containment to be set on temporary flooring above the functional
                control room. Leakage of any/all dust, water or debris into the control room is
                strictly prohibited. There is one ¾ size access door/hatch located ~7’ above the
                floor in the adjacent room on a 3’ x 4’ metal platform. The Contractor will have
                to submit a plan acceptable to Reclamation to utilize this access that would

SECTION E – INSPECTION AND ACCEPTANCE

E.1      52.236-05        MATERIAL AND WORKMANSHIP                                                            APRIL 1984

(a) All equipment, material, and articles incorporated into the work covered by this contract shall be new and of the
most suitable grade for the purpose intended, unless otherwise specifically provided in this contract. References in the
specifications to equipment, material, articles, or patented processes by trade name, make, or catalog number, shall be
regarded as establishing a standard of quality and shall not be construed as limiting competition. The Contractor may, at
its option, use any equipment, material, article, or process that, in the judgment of the Contracting Officer, is equal to
that named in the specifications, unless otherwise specifically provided in this contract.

(b) The Contractor shall obtain the Contracting Officer's approval of the machinery and mechanical and other
equipment to be incorporated into the work. When requesting approval, the Contractor shall furnish to the Contracting
Officer the name of the manufacturer, the model number, and other information concerning the performance, capacity,
nature, and rating of the machinery and mechanical and other equipment. When required by this contract or by the
Contracting Officer, the Contractor shall also obtain the Contracting Officer's approval of the material or articles which
the Contractor contemplates incorporating into the work. When requesting approval, the Contractor shall provide full
information concerning the material or articles. When directed to do so, the Contractor shall submit samples for
approval at the Contractor's expense, with all shipping charges prepaid. Machinery, equipment, material, and articles
that do not have the required approval shall be installed or used at the risk of subsequent rejection.

(c) All work under this contract shall be performed in a skillful and workmanlike manner. The Contracting Officer may
require, in writing, that the Contractor remove from the work any employee the Contracting Officer deems incompetent,
careless, or otherwise objectionable.

E.2      52.246-12        INSPECTION OF CONSTRUCTION                                                       AUGUST 1996

(a) Definition. "Work" includes, but is not limited to, materials, workmanship, and manufacture and fabrication of
components.

(b) The Contractor shall maintain an adequate inspection system and perform such inspections as will ensure that the
work performed under the contract conforms to contract requirements. The Contractor shall maintain complete
inspection records and make them available to the Government. All work shall be conducted under the general direction
of the Contracting Officer and is subject to Government inspection and test at all places and at all reasonable times
before acceptance to ensure strict compliance with the terms of the contract.

(c) Government inspections and tests are for the sole benefit of the Government and do not--

(1) Relieve the Contractor of responsibility for providing adequate quality control measures;

(2) Relieve the Contractor of responsibility for damage to or loss of the material before acceptance;

(3) Constitute or imply acceptance; or

(4) Affect the continuing rights of the Government after acceptance of the completed work under paragraph (i) of this
section.

(d) The presence or absence of a Government inspector does not relieve the Contractor from any contract requirement,
nor is the inspector authorized to change any term or condition of the specification without the Contracting Officer's
written authorization.

(e) The Contractor shall promptly furnish, at no increase in contract price, all facilities, labor, and material reasonably
needed for performing such safe and convenient inspections and tests as may be required by the Contracting Officer.
The Government may charge to the Contractor any additional cost of inspection or test when work is not ready at the
time specified by the Contractor for inspection or test, or when prior rejection makes reinspection or retest necessary.
The Government shall perform all inspections and tests in a manner that will not unnecessarily delay the work. Special,
full size, and performance tests shall be performed as described in the contract.

                                                            E-1

(f) The Contractor shall, without charge, replace or correct work found by the Government not to conform to contract
requirements, unless in the public interest the Government consents to accept the work with an appropriate adjustment
in contract price. The Contractor shall promptly segregate and remove rejected material from the premises.

(g) If the Contractor does not promptly replace or correct rejected work, the Government may--

(1) by contract or otherwise, replace or correct the work and charge the cost to the Contractor; or
(2) terminate for default the Contractor's right to proceed.

(h) If, before acceptance of the entire work, the Government decides to examine already completed work by removing it
or tearing it out, the Contractor, on request, shall promptly furnish all necessary facilities, labor, and material. If the
work is found to be defective or nonconforming in any material respect due to the fault of the Contractor or its
subcontractors, the Contractor shall defray the expenses of the examination and of satisfactory reconstruction. However,
if the work is found to meet contract requirements, the Contracting Officer shall make an equitable adjustment for the
additional services involved in the examination and reconstruction, including, if completion of the work was thereby
delayed, an extension of time.

(i) Unless otherwise specified in the contract, the Government shall accept, as promptly as practicable after completion
and inspection, all work required by the contract or that portion of the work the Contracting Officer determines can be
accepted separately. Acceptance shall be final and conclusive except for latent defects, fraud, gross mistakes amounting
to fraud, or the Government's rights under any warranty or guarantee.

E.3      52.246-21        WARRANTY OF CONSTRUCTION                                                MARCH 1994

(a) In addition to any other warranties in this contract, the Contractor warrants, except as provided in paragraph (i) of
this clause, that work performed under this contract conforms to the contract requirements and is free of any defect in
equipment, material, or design furnished, or workmanship performed by the Contractor or any subcontractor or supplier
at any tier.

(a) Definitions.

IRCA - Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986
INA - Immigration and Nationality Act
INS - Immigration and Naturalization Service
SSA - Social Security Administration
INS SAVE Program - The INS Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements Program
ESA - Employment Standards Administration (Department of Labor)

(a) Authority. Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (8 USC 1101 as amended) and the Immigration and
Nationality Act, Section 274A.

(b) Who is Covered. INA includes provisions addressing employment eligibility, employment verification, and
nondiscrimination. These provisions apply to all employers, including government contractors.

(c) Basic Provisions/Requirements. Under IRCA, employers may hire only persons who may legally work in the U.S.,
i.e., citizens and nationals of the U.S. and aliens authorized to work in the U.S. The employer must verify the identity
and employment eligibility of anyone to be hired, which includes completing the Employment Eligibility Verification
Form (I-9). Employers must keep each I-9 on file for at least three years, or one year after employment ends, whichever
is longer. Detailed guidance on the I-9 is available at the INS web site: http://www.uscis.gov/i-9

(d) Employment Verification Pilot Programs. The INS and the SSA are conducting the following programs that provide
employers a way to confirm the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees. Any employer located in a pilot
state may volunteer to participate in a pilot program. If employers are not located in a pilot state, they would verify
employment eligibility by following the procedures currently in place, i.e., by completing Form I-9.

         (1) The Basic Pilot is a joint pilot being conducted by the INS and SSA in the States of California, Florida,
         Illinois, Nebraska, New York, and Texas. This pilot involves verification checks of the SSA and INS databases
         of all newly hired employees, regardless of citizenship. To receive information on the Basic Pilot program
         please call the INS SAVE Program toll free at 1-888-464-4218, or fax your request for information to (202)
         514-9981, or write to USINS, SAVE Program, 425 I Street, NW, ULLICO Building 4th Floor, Washington,

         (3) The INS and the SSA are conducting the Machine-Readable Document Pilot in the State of Iowa. The
         Machine-Readable Document Pilot is identical to the Basic Pilot in all respects, except for the geographic
         scope of the pilot and for one additional feature. If an employee presents an Iowa's driver's license or
         identification card containing a machine-readable SSN, the employer will make an inquiry through the
         confirmation system by using the machine-readable feature. To receive information on the Machine-Readable

         ULLICO-4th Floor, Washington, DC 20536.

(e) Employee Rights. The INA protects U.S. citizens and aliens authorized to accept employment in the U.S. from
discrimination in hiring or discharge on the basis of national origin and citizenship status.

(f) Compliance Assistance. More detailed information, including copies of explanatory brochures and regulatory and
interpretative materials, may be obtained from local offices of the Department of Labor's Employment Standards
Division, Wage and Hour Division, and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.

(g) Penalties/Sanctions. Employers who fail to complete and/or retain the I-9 forms are subject to penalties. The INS
enforces the INA requirements on verification of employment eligibility. The Justice Department enforces the anti-
discrimination provisions. As part of their ongoing enforcement efforts, the ESA's Wage and Hour Division and Office
of Federal Contract Compliance Programs conduct inspections of the I-9 forms. They report their findings to the INS
and to the Department of Justice when they find cases of disparate treatment or unauthorized employment. A debarring
official may debar a contractor, based on a determination by the Attorney General of the United States, or designee, that
the contractor is not in compliance with the INA. The Attorney General's determination is not reviewable in the
debarment proceedings

H.3      DIAPR            CONTRACTOR PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT REPORTING SYSTEM                                       JULY 2010
         2010-14

(a) FAR 42.1502 directs all Federal agencies to collect past performance information on contracts. The Department of
the Interior (DOI) has implemented the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to comply
with this regulation. One or more past performance evaluations will be conducted in order to record your contract
performance as required by FAR 42.15.

(b) The past performance evaluation process is a totally paperless processing using CPARS. CPARS is a web-based
system that allows for electronic processing of the performance evaluation report. Once the report is processed, it is
available in the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) for Government use in evaluating past
performance as part of a source selection action.

(c) We request that you furnish to Contracting Officer with the name, position title, phone number, and email address
for each person designated to have access to your firms's past performance evaluation(s) for the contract no later than 30
days after award. Each person granted access will have the ability to provide comments in the Contractor portion of the
report and state whether or not the Contractor agrees with the evaluation, before returning the report to the Assessing
Official. The report information must be protected as source selection sensitive information not releasable to the public.

(d) When your Contractor Representative(s) (Past Performance Points of Contact) are registered in CPARS, they will
receive an automatically-generated email with detailed login instructions. Further details, system requirements, and
training information for CPARS is available at http://www.cpars.csd.disa.mil/. The CPARS User Manual, registration
for On Line Training for Contractor Representatives, and a practice application may be found a t this site.

(e) Within 60 days after the end of a performance period, the Contracting Officer will complete an interim or final past
performance evaluation and the report will be accessible at http://www.cpars.csd.disa.mil/.. Contractor Representatives
may then provide comments in response to the evaluation, or return the evaluation without comment. Comments are
limited to the space provided in Block 22. Your comments should focus on objective facts in the Assessing Official's
narrative and should provide your views on the causes and ramifications of the assessed performance. In addition to the

ratings and supporting narratives, block 1 - 17 should be reviewed for accuracy, as these include key fields that will be
used by the Government to identify your firm in future source selection actions. If you elect not to provide comments,
please acknowledge receipt of the evaluation by indicating "No comment" in Block 22, and then signing and dating
Block 23 of the form. Without a statement in Block 22, you will be unable to sign and submit the evaluation back to the
Government. If you do not sign and submit the CPAR within 30 days, it will automatically be returned to the
Government and will be annotated: "The report was delivered/received by the contractor on (date). The contractor
neither signed nor offered comment in response to this assessment." Your response is due within 30 calendar days after
receipt of the CPAR.

(f) The following guidelines apply concerning your use of the past performance evaluation:

         (1) Protect the evaluation as "source selection information." After review, transmit the evaluation by
         completing and submitting the form through CPARS. If for some reason you are unable to view and/or submit
         the form through CPARS< contact the Contracting Officer for instructions.

         (2) Strictly control access to the evaluation within your organization. Ensure the evaluation is never released
         to persons or entities outside of your control.

         (3) Prohibit the use of or reference to evaluation data for advertised, promotional material, preaward surveys,
         responsibility determinations, production readiness reviews, or other similar purposes.

(g) If you wish to discuss a past performance evaluation, you should request a meeting in writing to the Contracting
Officer no later than seven days following your receipt of the evaluation. The meeting will be held in person or via
telephone or other means during your 30 - day review period.

(h) A copy of the completed past performance evaluation will be available in CPARS for your viewing and for
Government use supporting source selection actions after it has been finalized.

(2) Any award resulting from this solicitation will be made to a small business concern.

(c) Agreement. A small business concern submitting an offer in its own name shall furnish, in performing the contract,
only end items manufactured or produced by small business concerns in the United States or its outlying areas. If this

construction or service contracts.

I.8      52.225-09         BUY AMERICAN ACT - CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS                                             SEPTEMBER 2010

(a) Definitions. As used in this clause-

"Commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) item"--

         (1) Means any item of supply (including construction material) that is--

                  (i) A commercial item (as defined in paragraph (1) of the definition at FAR 2.101);

                  (ii) Sold in substantial quantities in the commercial marketplace; and

                  (iii) Offered to the Government, under a contract or subcontract at any tier, without modification, in
                  the same form in which it is sold in the commercial marketplace; and

         (2) Does not include bulk cargo, as defined in section 3 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (46 U.S.C. App. 1702),
         such as agricultural products and petroleum products.

"Component" means an article, material, or supply incorporated directly into a construction material.

"Construction material" means an article, material, or supply brought to the construction site by the Contractor or a
subcontractor for incorporation into the building or work. The term also includes an item brought to the site
preassembled from articles, materials, or supplies. However, emergency life safety systems, such as emergency lighting,
fire alarm, and audio evacuation systems, that are discrete systems incorporated into a public building or work and that
are produced as complete systems, are evaluated as a single and distinct construction material regardless of when or
how the individual parts or components of those systems are delivered to the construction site. Materials purchased
directly by the Government are supplies, not construction material.

"Cost of components" means--

         (1) For components purchased by the Contractor, the acquisition cost, including transportation costs to the
         place of incorporation into the construction material (whether or not such costs are paid to a domestic firm),
         and any applicable duty (whether or not a duty free entry certificate is issued); or

         (2) For components manufactured by the Contractor, all costs associated with the manufacture of the
         component, including transportation costs as described in paragraph (1) of this definition, plus allocable
         overhead costs, but excluding profit. Cost of components does not include any costs associated with the
         manufacture of the construction material.

                                                             I-4
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

"Domestic construction material" means--

         (1) An unmanufactured construction material mined or produced in the United States;

         (2) A construction material manufactured in the United States, if--

                  (i) The cost of its components mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States exceeds 50
                  percent of the cost of all its components. Components of foreign origin of the same class or kind for
                  which nonavailability determinations have been made are treated as domestic; or

                  (ii) The construction material is a COTS item.

"Foreign construction material" means a construction material other than a domestic construction material.

"United States" means the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and outlying areas.

(b) Domestic preference. (1) This clause implements the Buy American Act (41 U.S.C. 10a - 10d) by providing a
preference for domestic construction material. In accordance with 41 U.S.C. 431, the component test of the Buy
American Act is waived for construction material that is a COTS item (See FAR 12.505(a)(2)). The Contractor shall use
only domestic construction material in performing this contract, except as provided in paragraphs (b)(2) and (b)(3) of
this clause.

         (2) This requirement does not apply to information technology that is a commercial item or to the construction
         materials or components listed by the Government as follows: ______ [Contracting Officer to list applicable
         excepted materials or indicate ``none'']

         (3) The Contracting Officer may add other foreign construction material to the list in paragraph (b)(2) of this
         clause if the Government determines that--

                  (i) The cost of domestic construction material would be unreasonable. The cost of a particular
                  domestic construction material subject to the requirements of the Buy American Act is unreasonable
                  when the cost of such material exceeds the cost of foreign material by more than 6 percent;

                  (ii) The application of the restriction of the Buy American Act to a particular construction material
                  would be impracticable or inconsistent with the public interest; or

                  (iii) The construction material is not mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States in
                  sufficient and reasonably available commercial quantities of a satisfactory quality.

(c) Request for determination of inapplicability of the Buy American Act.

                  (1)(i) Any Contractor request to use foreign construction material in accordance with paragraph (b)(3)
                  of this clause shall include adequate information for Government evaluation of the request, including

                           (A) A description of the foreign and domestic construction materials;

                           (B) Unit of measure;

                           (C) Quantity;

                           (D) Price;

                           (E) Time of delivery or availability;

                           (F) Location of the construction project;

                           (G) Name and address of the proposed supplier; and

                                                           I-5
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                     Solicitation No. R11PS60022



                           (H) A detailed justification of the reason for use of foreign construction materials cited in
                           accordance with paragraph (b)(3) of this clause.

                  (ii) A request based on unreasonable cost shall include a reasonable survey of the market and a
                  completed price comparison table in the format in paragraph (d) of this clause.

                  (iii) The price of construction material shall include all delivery costs to the construction site and any
                  applicable duty (whether or not a duty free certificate may be issued).

                  (iv) Any Contractor request for a determination submitted after contract award shall explain why the
                  Contractor could not reasonably foresee the need for such determination and could not have requested
                  the determination before contract award. If the Contractor does not submit a satisfactory explanation,
                  the Contracting Officer need not make a determination.

         (2) If the Government determines after contract award that an exception to the Buy American Act applies and
         the Contracting Officer and the Contractor negotiate adequate consideration, the Contracting Officer will
         modify the contract to allow use of the foreign construction material. However, when the basis for the
         exception is the unreasonable price of a domestic construction material, adequate consideration is not less than
         the differential established in paragraph (b)(3)(i) of this clause.

         (3) Unless the Government determines that an exception to the Buy American Act applies, use of foreign
         construction material is noncompliant with the Buy American Act.

(d) Data. To permit evaluation of requests under paragraph (c) of this clause based on unreasonable cost, the Contractor
shall include the following information and any applicable supporting data based on the survey of suppliers:

(a) Failure to furnish a bid guarantee in the proper form and amount, by the time set for opening of bids, may be cause
for rejection of the bid.

(b) The bidder shall furnish a bid guarantee in the form of a firm commitment, e.g., bid bond supported by good and
sufficient surety or sureties acceptable to the Government, postal money order, certified check, cashier's check,
irrevocable letter of credit, or, under Treasury Department regulations, certain bonds or notes of the United States. The
Contracting Officer will return bid guarantees, other than bid bonds--

(1) to unsuccessful bidders as soon as practicable after the opening of bids; and

(2) to the successful bidder upon execution of contractual documents and bonds (including any necessary coinsurance or
reinsurance agreements), as required by the bid as accepted.-

(c) The amount of the bid guarantee shall be 20% of the bid price or $3.0 Million, whichever is less.-


                                                            I-6

(d) If the successful bidder, upon acceptance of its bid by the Government within the period specified for acceptance,
fails to execute all contractual documents or furnish executed bond(s) within 10 days after receipt of the forms by the
bidder, the Contracting Officer may terminate the contract for default.-

(e) In the event the contract is terminated for default, the bidder is liable for any cost of acquiring the work that exceeds
the amount of its bid, and the bid guarantee is available to offset the difference.

I.10     52.228-15         PERFORMANCE AND PAYMENT BONDS--CONSTRUCTION                                              OCTOBER 2010

(a) Definitions. As used in this clause-

"Original contract price" means the award price of the contract; or, for requirements contracts, the price payable for the
estimated total quantity; or, for indefinite-quantity contracts, the price payable for the specified minimum quantity.
Original contract price does not include the price of any options, except those options exercised at the time of contract
award.

(b) Amount of required bonds. Unless the resulting contract price is $150,000 or less, the successful offeror shall furnish
performance and payment bonds to the Contracting Officer as follows:

         (1) Performance bonds (Standard Form 25). The penal amount of performance bonds at the time of contract
         award shall be 100 percent of the original contract price.

         (2) Payment Bonds (Standard Form 25-A). The penal amount of payment bonds at the time of contract award
         shall be 100 percent of the original contract price.

         (3) Additional bond protection. (i) The Government may require additional performance and payment bond
         protection if the contract price is increased. The increase in protection generally will equal 100 percent of the
         increase in contract price.

                  (ii) The Government may secure the additional protection by directing the Contractor to increase the
                  penal amount of the existing bond or to obtain an additional bond.

(c) Furnishing executed bonds. The Contractor shall furnish all executed bonds, including any necessary reinsurance
agreements, to the Contracting Officer, within the time period specified in the Bid Guarantee provision of the
solicitation, or otherwise specified by the Contracting Officer, but in any event, before starting work.

(d) Surety or other security for bonds. The bonds shall be in the form of firm commitment, supported by corporate
sureties whose names appear on the list contained in Treasury Department Circular 570, individual sureties, or by other
acceptable security such as postal money order, certified check, cashier 's check, irrevocable letter of credit, or, in
accordance with Treasury Department regulations, certain bonds or notes of the United States. Treasury
Circular 570 is published in the Federal Register or may be obtained from the:

                            U.S. Department of Treasury
                            Financial Management Service
                            Surety Bond Branch

(e) Notice of subcontractor waiver of protection (40 U.S.C. 3133(c)). Any waiver of the right to sue on the payment
bond is void unless it is in writing, signed by the person whose right is waived, and executed after such person has first
furnished labor or material for use in the performance of the contract.

I.11     52.232-05         PAYMENTS UNDER FIXED-PRICE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS                                       SEPTEMBER 2002

(a) Payment of price. The Government shall pay the Contractor the contract price as provided in this contract.


                                                             I-7

(b) Progress payments. The Government shall make progress payments monthly as the work proceeds, or at more
frequent intervals as determined by the Contracting Officer, on estimates of work accomplished which meets the
standards of quality established under the contract, as approved by the Contracting Officer.

(1) The Contractor's request for progress payments shall include the following substantiation:

(i) An itemization of the amounts requested, related to the various elements of work required by the contract covered by
the payment requested.

(ii) A listing of the amount included for work performed by each subcontractor under the contract.

(iii) A listing of the total amount of each subcontract under the contract.

(iv) A listing of the amounts previously paid to each such subcontractor under the contract.

(v) Additional supporting data in a form and detail required by the Contracting Officer.

(2) In the preparation of estimates, the Contracting Officer may authorize material delivered on the site and preparatory
work done to be taken into consideration. Material delivered to the Contractor at locations other than the site also may
be taken into consideration if--

(i) Consideration is specifically authorized by this contract; and

(ii) The Contractor furnishes satisfactory evidence that it has acquired title to such material and that the material will be
used to perform this contract.

(c) Contractor certification. Along with each request for progress payments, the Contractor shall furnish the following
certification, or payment shall not be made: (However, if the Contractor elects to delete paragraph (c)(4) from the
certification, the certification is still acceptable.)

I hereby certify, to the best of my knowledge and belief, that--

(1) The amounts requested are only for performance in accordance with the specifications, terms, and conditions of the
contract;

(2) All payments due to subcontractors and suppliers from previous payments received under the contract have been
made, and timely payments will be made from the proceeds of the payment covered by this certification, in accordance
with subcontract agreements and the requirements of chapter 39 of Title 31, United States Code;

(3) This request for progress payments does not include any amounts which the prime contractor intends to withhold or
retain from a subcontractor or supplier in accordance with the terms and conditions of the subcontract; and

(4) This certification is not to be construed as final acceptance of a subcontractor's performance.

(d) Refund of unearned amounts. If the Contractor, after making a certified request for progress payments, discovers
that a portion or all of such request constitutes a payment for performance by the Contractor that fails to conform to the
specifications, terms, and conditions of this contract (hereinafter referred to as the "unearned amount"), the Contractor
shall--

(1) Notify the Contracting Officer of such performance deficiency; and

                                                             I-8

(2) Be obligated to pay the Government an amount (computed by the Contracting Officer in the manner provided in
paragraph (j) of this clause) equal to interest on the unearned amount from the 8th day after the date of receipt of the
unearned amount until--

(i) The date the Contractor notifies the Contracting Officer that the performance deficiency has been corrected; or

(ii) The date the Contractor reduces the amount of any subsequent certified request for progress payments by an amount
equal to the unearned amount.

(e) Retainage. If the Contracting Officer finds that satisfactory progress was achieved during any period for which a
progress payment is to be made, the Contracting Officer shall authorize payment to be made in full. However, if
satisfactory progress has not been made, the Contracting Officer may retain a maximum of 10 percent of the amount of
the payment until satisfactory progress is achieved. When the work is substantially complete, the Contracting Officer
may retain from previously withheld funds and future progress payments that amount the Contracting Officer considers
adequate for protection of the Government and shall release to the Contractor all the remaining withheld funds. Also, on
completion and acceptance of each separate building, public work, or other division of the contract, for which the price
is stated separately in the contract, payment shall be made for the completed work without retention of a percentage.

(f) Title, liability, and reservation of rights. All material and work covered by progress payments made shall, at the time
of payment, become the sole property of the Government, but this shall not be construed as--

(1) Relieving the Contractor from the sole responsibility for all material and work upon which payments have been
made or the restoration of any damaged work; or

(2) Waiving the right of the Government to require the fulfillment of all of the terms of the contract.

(g) Reimbursement for bond premiums. In making these progress payments, the Government shall, upon request,
reimburse the Contractor for the amount of premiums paid for performance and payment bonds (including coinsurance
and reinsurance agreements, when applicable) after the Contractor has furnished evidence of full payment to the surety.
The retainage provisions in paragraph (e) of this clause shall not apply to that portion of progress payments attributable
to bond premiums.

(h) Final payment. The Government shall pay the amount due the Contractor under this contract after--

(1) Completion and acceptance of all work;

(2) Presentation of a properly executed voucher; and

(3) Presentation of release of all claims against the Government arising by virtue of this contract, other than claims, in
stated amounts, that the Contractor has specifically excepted from the operation of the release. A release may also be
required of the assignee if the Contractor's claim to amounts payable under this contract has been assigned under the
Assignment of Claims Act of 1940 (31 U.S.C. 3727 and 41 U.S.C. 15).

(i) Limitation because of undefinitized work. Notwithstanding any provision of this contract, progress payments shall
not exceed 80 percent on work accomplished on undefinitized contract actions. A "contract action" is any action
resulting in a contract, as defined in FAR Subpart 2.1, including contract modifications for additional supplies or
services, but not including contract modifications that are within the scope and under the terms of the contract, such as
contract modifications issued pursuant to the Changes clause, or funding and other administrative changes.

(j) Interest computation on unearned amounts. In accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3903(c)(1), the amount payable under
subparagraph (d)(2) of this clause shall be--

(1) Computed at the rate of average bond equivalent rates of 91-day Treasury bills auctioned at the most recent auction
of such bills prior to the date the Contractor receives the unearned amount; and

(2) Deducted from the next available payment to the Contractor.

I.12     52.232-27        PROMPT PAYMENT FOR CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS                                             OCTOBER 2008

Notwithstanding any other payment terms in this contract, the Government will make invoice payments under the terms
and conditions specified in this clause. The Government considers payment as being made on the day a check is dated
or the date of an electronic funds transfer. Definitions of pertinent terms are set forth in sections 2.101, 32.001, and
32.902 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. All days referred to in this clause are calendar days, unless otherwise
specified. (However, see paragraph (a)(3) concerning payments due on Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays.)

(a) Invoice payments—

         (1) Types of invoice payments. For purposes of this clause, there are several types of invoice payments that
         may occur under this contract, as follows:

                  (i) Progress payments, if provided for elsewhere in this contract, based on Contracting Officer
                  approval of the estimated amount and value of work or services performed, including payments for
                  reaching milestones in any project.

                           (A) The due date for making such payments is 14 days after the designated billing office
                           receives a proper payment request. If the designated billing office fails to annotate the
                           payment request with the actual date of receipt at the time of receipt, the payment due date is
                           the 14th day after the date of the Contractor’s payment request, provided the designated
                           billing office receives a proper payment request and there is no disagreement over quantity,
                           quality, or Contractor compliance with contract requirements.

                           (B) The due date for payment of any amounts retained by the Contracting Officer in
                           accordance with the clause at 52.232-5, Payments Under Fixed-Price Construction Contracts,
                           is as specified in the contract or, if not specified, 30 days after approval by the Contracting
                           Officer for release to the Contractor.

                  (ii) Final payments based on completion and acceptance of all work and presentation of release of all
                  claims against the Government arising by virtue of the contract, and payments for partial deliveries
                  that have been accepted by the Government (e.g., each separate building, public work, or other
                  division of the contract for which the price is stated separately in the contract).

                           (A) The due date for making such payments is the later of the following two events:

                                    (1) The 30th day after the designated billing office receives a proper invoice from
                                    the Contractor.

                                    (2) The 30th day after Government acceptance of the work or services completed by
                                    the Contractor. For a final invoice when the payment amount is subject to contract
                                    settlement actions (e.g., release of claims), acceptance is deemed to occur on the
                                    effective date of the contract settlement.

                           (B) If the designated billing office fails to annotate the invoice with the date of actual receipt
                           at the time of receipt, the invoice payment due date is the 30th day after the date of the
                           Contractor’s invoice, provided the designated billing office receives a proper invoice and
                           there is no disagreement over quantity, quality, or Contractor compliance with contract
                           requirements.

         (2) Contractor's invoice. The Contractor shall prepare and submit invoices to the designated billing office
         specified in the contract. A proper invoice must include the items listed in paragraphs (a)(2)(i) through
         (a)(2)(xi) of this clause. If the invoice does not comply with these requirements, the designated billing office
         must return it within 7 days after receipt, with the reasons why it is not a proper invoice. When computing any
         interest penalty owed the Contractor, the Government will take into account if the Government notifies the
         Contractor of an improper invoice in an untimely manner.

                 (i) Name and address of the Contractor.

                 (ii) Invoice date and invoice number. (The Contractor should date invoices as close as possible to the
                 date of mailing or transmission.)

                 (iii) Contract number or other authorization for work or services performed (including order number
                 and contract line item number).

                 (iv) Description of work or services performed.

                 (v) Delivery and payment terms (e.g., discount for prompt payment terms).

                 (vi) Name and address of Contractor official to whom payment is to be sent (must be the same as that
                 in the contract or in a proper notice of assignment).

                 (vii) Name (where practicable), title, phone number, and mailing address of person to notify in the
                 event of a defective invoice.

                 requested and certification in accordance with the requirements of the clause at 52.232-5, Payments
                 Under Fixed-Price Construction Contracts.

                 (ix) Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). The Contractor shall include its TIN on the invoice only
                 if required elsewhere in this contract.

                 (x) Electronic funds transfer (EFT) banking information.

                          (A) The Contractor shall include EFT banking information on the invoice only if required
                          elsewhere in this contract.

                          (B) If EFT banking information is not required to be on the invoice, in order for the invoice
                          to be a proper invoice, the Contractor shall have submitted correct EFT banking information
                          in accordance with the applicable solicitation provision (e.g., 52.232-38, Submission of
                          Electronic Funds Transfer Information with Offer), contract clause (e.g., 52.232-33, Payment
                          by Electronic Funds Transfer—Central Contractor Registration, or 52.232-34, Payment by
                          Electronic Funds Transfer—Other Than Central Contractor Registration), or applicable
                          agency procedures.

                          (C) EFT banking information is not required if the Government waived the requirement to
                          pay by EFT.

                 (xi) Any other information or documentation required by the contract.

        from the Contractor, if payment is not made by the due date and the conditions listed in paragraphs (a)(3)(i)
        through (a)(3)(iii) of this clause are met, if applicable. However, when the due date falls on a Saturday,
        Sunday, or legal holiday, the designated payment office may make payment on the following working day
        without incurring a late payment interest penalty.

                 (i) The designated billing office received a proper invoice.

                 (ii) The Government processed a receiving report or other Government documentation authorizing
                 payment and there was no disagreement over quantity, quality, Contractor compliance with any
                 contract term or condition, or requested progress payment amount.




                                                           I-11
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                 Solicitation No. R11PS60022

                 (iii) In the case of a final invoice for any balance of funds due the Contractor for work or services
                 performed, the amount was not subject to further contract settlement actions between the Government
                 and the Contractor.

        (4) Computing penalty amount. The Government will compute the interest penalty in accordance with the
        Office of Management and Budget prompt payment regulations at 5 CFR Part 1315.

                 (i) For the sole purpose of computing an interest penalty that might be due the Contractor for
                 payments described in paragraph (a)(1)(ii) of this clause, Government acceptance or approval is
                 deemed to occur constructively on the 7th day after the Contractor has completed the work or services
                 in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract. If actual acceptance or approval occurs
                 within the constructive acceptance or approval period, the Government will base the determination of
                 an interest penalty on the actual date of acceptance or approval. Constructive acceptance or
                 constructive approval requirements do not apply if there is a disagreement over quantity, quality, or
                 Contractor compliance with a contract provision. These requirements also do not compel Government
                 officials to accept work or services, approve Contractor estimates, perform contract administration
                 functions, or make payment prior to fulfilling their responsibilities.

                 (ii) The prompt payment regulations at 5 CFR 1315.10(c) do not require the Government to pay
                 interest penalties if payment delays are due to disagreement between the Government and the
                 Contractor over the payment amount or other issues involving contract compliance, or on amounts
                 temporarily withheld or retained in accordance with the terms of the contract. The Government and
                 the Contractor shall resolve claims involving disputes, and any interest that may be payable in
                 accordance with the clause at FAR 52.233-1, Disputes.

        (5) Discounts for prompt payment. The designated payment office will pay an interest penalty automatically,
        without request from the Contractor, if the Government takes a discount for prompt payment improperly. The
        Government will calculate the interest penalty in accordance with the prompt payment regulations at 5 CFR
        Part 1315.

        (6) Additional interest penalty.

                 (i) The designated payment office will pay a penalty amount, calculated in accordance with the
                 prompt payment regulations at 5 CFR Part 1315 in addition to the interest penalty amount only if—

                          (A) The Government owes an interest penalty of $1 or more;

                          (B) The designated payment office does not pay the interest penalty within 10 days after the
                          date the invoice amount is paid; and

                          (C) The Contractor makes a written demand to the designated payment office for additional
                          penalty payment, in accordance with paragraph (a)(6)(ii) of this clause, postmarked not later
                          than 40 days after the date the invoice amount is paid.

                 (ii)(A) The Contractor shall support written demands for additional penalty payments with the
                 following data. The Government will not request any additional data. The Contractor shall—

                          (1) Specifically assert that late payment interest is due under a specific invoice, and request
                          payment of all overdue late payment interest penalty and such additional penalty as may be
                          required;

                          (2) Attach a copy of the invoice on which the unpaid late payment interest was due; and

                          (3) State that payment of the principal has been received, including the date of receipt.

                 (B) If there is no postmark or the postmark is illegible—


                                                          I-12

                           (1) The designated payment office that receives the demand will annotate it with the date of
                           receipt provided the demand is received on or before the 40th day after payment was made;
                           or

                           (2) If the designated payment office fails to make the required annotation, the Government
                           will determine the demand’s validity based on the date the Contractor has placed on the
                           demand, provided such date is no later than the 40th day after payment was made.

(b) Contract financing payments. If this contract provides for contract financing, the Government will make contract
financing payments in accordance with the applicable contract financing clause.

 (c) Subcontract clause requirements. The Contractor shall include in each subcontract for property or services
(including a material supplier) for the purpose of performing this contract the following:

         (1) Prompt payment for subcontractors. A payment clause that obligates the Contractor to pay the
         subcontractor for satisfactory performance under its subcontract not later than 7 days from receipt of payment
         out of such amounts as are paid to the Contractor under this contract.

         (2) Interest for subcontractors. An interest penalty clause that obligates the Contractor to pay to the
         subcontractor an interest penalty for each payment not made in accordance with the payment clause—

                  (i) For the period beginning on the day after the required payment date and ending on the date on
                  which payment of the amount due is made; and

                  (ii) Computed at the rate of interest established by the Secretary of the Treasury, and published in the
                  Federal Register, for interest payments under section 12 of the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (41
                  U.S.C. 611) in effect at the time the Contractor accrues the obligation to pay an interest penalty.

         (3) Subcontractor clause flowdown. A clause requiring each subcontractor to—

                  (i) Include a payment clause and an interest penalty clause conforming to the standards set forth in
                  paragraphs (c)(1) and (c)(2) of this clause in each of its subcontracts; and

                  (ii) Require each of its subcontractors to include such clauses in their subcontracts with each lower-
                  tier subcontractor or supplier.

(d) Subcontract clause interpretation. The clauses required by paragraph (c) of this clause shall not be construed to
impair the right of the Contractor or a subcontractor at any tier to negotiate, and to include in their subcontract,
provisions that—

         (1) Retainage permitted. Permit the Contractor or a subcontractor to retain (without cause) a specified
         percentage of each progress payment otherwise due to a subcontractor for satisfactory performance under the
         subcontract without incurring any obligation to pay a late payment interest penalty, in accordance with terms
         and conditions agreed to by the parties to the subcontract, giving such recognition as the parties deem
         appropriate to the ability of a subcontractor to furnish a performance bond and a payment bond;

         (2) Withholding permitted. Permit the Contractor or subcontractor to make a determination that part or all of
         the subcontractor’s request for payment may be withheld in accordance with the subcontract agreement; and

         (3) Withholding requirements. Permit such withholding without incurring any obligation to pay a late payment
         penalty if—

                  (i) A notice conforming to the standards of paragraph (g) of this clause previously has been furnished
                  to the subcontractor; and

                  pursuant to paragraph (d)(3)(i) of this clause.

(e) Subcontractor withholding procedures. If a Contractor, after making a request for payment to the Government but
before making a payment to a subcontractor for the subcontractor’s performance covered by the payment request,
discovers that all or a portion of the payment otherwise due such subcontractor is subject to withholding from the
subcontractor in accordance with the subcontract agreement, then the Contractor shall—

        (1) Subcontractor notice. Furnish to the subcontractor a notice conforming to the standards of paragraph (g) of
        this clause as soon as practicable upon ascertaining the cause giving rise to a withholding, but prior to the due
        date for subcontractor payment;

        (2) Contracting Officer notice. Furnish to the Contracting Officer, as soon as practicable, a copy of the notice
        furnished to the subcontractor pursuant to paragraph (e)(1) of this clause;

        (3) Subcontractor progress payment reduction. Reduce the subcontractor’s progress payment by an amount not
        to exceed the amount specified in the notice of withholding furnished under paragraph (e)(1) of this clause;

        (4) Subsequent subcontractor payment. Pay the subcontractor as soon as practicable after the correction of the
        identified subcontract performance deficiency, and—

                 (i) Make such payment within—

                          (A) Seven days after correction of the identified subcontract performance deficiency (unless
                          the funds therefor must be recovered from the Government because of a reduction under
                          paragraph (e)(5)(i)) of this clause; or

                          (B) Seven days after the Contractor recovers such funds from the Government; or

                 (ii) Incur an obligation to pay a late payment interest penalty computed at the rate of interest
                 established by the Secretary of the Treasury, and published in the Federal Register, for interest
                 payments under section 12 of the Contracts Disputes Act of 1978 (41 U.S.C. 611) in effect at the time
                 the Contractor accrues the obligation to pay an interest penalty;

        (5) Notice to Contracting Officer. Notify the Contracting Officer upon—

                 (i) Reduction of the amount of any subsequent certified application for payment; or

                 (ii) Payment to the subcontractor of any withheld amounts of a progress payment, specifying—

                          (A) The amounts withheld under paragraph (e)(1) of this clause; and

                          (B) The dates that such withholding began and ended; and

        (6) Interest to Government. Be obligated to pay to the Government an amount equal to interest on the withheld
        payments (computed in the manner provided in 31 U.S.C. 3903(c)(1)), from the 8th day after receipt of the
        withheld amounts from the Government until—

                 (i) The day the identified subcontractor performance deficiency is corrected; or

                 (ii) The date that any subsequent payment is reduced under paragraph (e)(5)(i) of this clause.

(f) Third-party deficiency reports—

        (1) Withholding from subcontractor. If a Contractor, after making payment to a first-tier subcontractor,
        receives from a supplier or subcontractor of the first-tier subcontractor (hereafter referred to as a “second-tier
        subcontractor”) a written notice in accordance with the Miller Act (40 U.S.C. 3133), asserting a deficiency in
        such first-tier subcontractor’s performance under the contract for which the Contractor may be ultimately
        liable, and the Contractor determines that all or a portion of future payments otherwise due such first-tier


                                                           I-14

         subcontractor is subject to withholding in accordance with the subcontract agreement, the Contractor may,
         without incurring an obligation to pay an interest penalty under paragraph (e)(6) of this clause—

                  (i) Furnish to the first-tier subcontractor a notice conforming to the standards of paragraph (g) of this
                  clause as soon as practicable upon making such determination; and

                  (ii) Withhold from the first-tier subcontractor’s next available progress payment or payments an
                  amount not to exceed the amount specified in the notice of withholding furnished under paragraph
                  (f)(1)(i) of this clause.

         (2) Subsequent payment or interest charge. As soon as practicable, but not later than 7 days after receipt of
         satisfactory written notification that the identified subcontract performance deficiency has been corrected, the
         Contractor shall—

                  (i) Pay the amount withheld under paragraph (f)(1)(ii) of this clause to such first-tier subcontractor; or

                  (ii) Incur an obligation to pay a late payment interest penalty to such first-tier subcontractor computed
                  at the rate of interest established by the Secretary of the Treasury, and published in the Federal
                  Register, for interest payments under section 12 of the Contracts Disputes Act of 1978 (41 U.S.C.
                  611) in effect at the time the Contractor accrues the obligation to pay an interest penalty.

(g) Written notice of subcontractor withholding. The Contractor shall issue a written notice of any withholding to a
subcontractor (with a copy furnished to the Contracting Officer), specifying—

         (1) The amount to be withheld;

         (2) The specific causes for the withholding under the terms of the subcontract; and

         (3) The remedial actions to be taken by the subcontractor in order to receive payment of the amounts withheld.

(h) Subcontractor payment entitlement. The Contractor may not request payment from the Government of any amount
withheld or retained in accordance with paragraph (d) of this clause until such time as the Contractor has determined
and certified to the Contracting Officer that the subcontractor is entitled to the payment of such amount.

(i) Prime-subcontractor disputes. A dispute between the Contractor and subcontractor relating to the amount or
entitlement of a subcontractor to a payment or a late payment interest penalty under a clause included in the subcontract
pursuant to paragraph (c) of this clause does not constitute a dispute to which the Government is a party. The
Government may not be interpleaded in any judicial or administrative proceeding involving such a dispute.

(j) Preservation of prime-subcontractor rights. Except as provided in paragraph (i) of this clause, this clause shall not
limit or impair any contractual, administrative, or judicial remedies otherwise available to the Contractor or a
subcontractor in the event of a dispute involving late payment or nonpayment by the Contractor or deficient subcontract
performance or nonperformance by a subcontractor.

(k) Non-recourse for prime contractor interest penalty. The Contractor’s obligation to pay an interest penalty to a
subcontractor pursuant to the clauses included in a subcontract under paragraph (c) of this clause shall not be construed
to be an obligation of the Government for such interest penalty. A cost-reimbursement claim may not include any
amount for reimbursement of such interest penalty.

(l) Overpayments. If the Contractor becomes aware of a duplicate contract financing or invoice payment or that the
Government has otherwise overpaid on a contract financing or invoice payment, the Contractor shall—

         (1) Remit the overpayment amount to the payment office cited in the contract along with a description of the
         overpayment including the—

                  (i) Circumstances of the overpayment (e.g., duplicate payment, erroneous payment, liquidation errors,
                  date(s) of overpayment);

                                                           I-15

                  (ii) Affected contract number and delivery order number if applicable;

                  (iii) Affected contract line item or subline item, if applicable; and

                  (iv) Contractor point of contact.

         (2) Provide a copy of the remittance and supporting documentation to the Contracting Officer.

         (3) In the Government-furnished property or services; or

         (4) Directing acceleration in the performance of the work.

(b) Any other written or oral order (which, as used in this paragraph (b), includes direction, instruction, interpretation, or
determination) from the Contracting Officer that causes a change shall be treated as a change order under this clause;
provided, that the Contractor gives the Contracting Officer written notice stating--

         (1) The date, circumstances, and source of the order and

         (2) That the Contractor regards the order as a change order.

(c) Except as provided in this clause, no order, statement, or conduct of the Contracting Officer shall be treated as a
change under this clause or entitle the Contractor to an equitable adjustment.

(d) If any change under this clause causes an increase or decrease in the Contractor's cost of, or the time required for,
the performance of any part of the work under this contract, whether or not changed by any such order, the Contracting
Officer shall make an equitable adjustment and modify the contract in writing. However, except for an adjustment
based on defective specifications, no adjustment for any change under paragraph (b) of this clause shall be made for any
costs incurred more than 20 days before the Contractor gives written notice as required. In the case of defective
specifications for which the Government is responsible, the equitable adjustment shall include any increased cost
reasonably incurred by the Contractor in attempting to comply with the defective specifications.

(e) The Contractor must assert its right to an adjustment under this clause within 30 days after

         (1) receipt of a written change order under paragraph (a) of this clause or (2) the furnishing of a written notice
         under paragraph (b) of this clause, by submitting to the Contracting Officer a written statement describing the
         general nature and amount of the proposal, unless this period is extended by the Government. The statement of
         proposal for adjustment may be included in the notice under paragraph (b) above.

(f) No proposal by the Contractor for an equitable adjustment shall be allowed if asserted after final payment under this
contract.

(a) General. The Contractor is encouraged to develop, prepare, and submit value engineering change proposals
(VECP's) voluntarily. The Contractor shall share in any instant contract savings realized from accepted VECP's, in
accordance with paragraph (f) below.

(b) Definitions. "Collateral costs," as used in this clause, means agency costs of operation, maintenance, logistic
support, or Government-furnished property.

"Collateral savings," as used in this clause, means those measurable net reductions resulting from a VECP in the
agency's overall projected collateral costs, exclusive of acquisition savings, whether or not the acquisition cost changes.

"Contractor's development and implementation costs," as used in this clause, means those costs the Contractor incurs on
a VECP specifically in developing, testing, preparing, and submitting the VECP, as well as those costs the Contractor
incurs to make the contractual changes required by Government acceptance of a VECP.

"Government costs," as used in this clause, means those agency costs that result directly from developing and
implementing the VECP, such as any net increases in the cost of testing, operations, maintenance, and logistic support.
The term does not include the normal administrative costs of processing the VECP.

"Instant contract savings," as used in this clause, means the estimated reduction in Contractor cost of performance
resulting from acceptance of the VECP, minus allowable Contractor's development and implementation costs, including
subcontractors' development and implementation costs (see paragraph (h) below).

"Value engineering change proposal (VECP)" means a proposal that--

         (1) Requires a change to this, the instant contract, to implement; and

         (2) Results in reducing the contract price or estimated cost without impairing essential functions or
         characteristics; provided, that it does not involve a change--

                  (i) In deliverable end item quantities only; or

                  (ii) To the contract type only.

(c) VECP preparation. As a minimum, the Contractor shall include in each VECP the information described in
subparagraphs (1) through (7) below. If the proposed change is affected by contractually required configuration
management or similar procedures, the instructions in those procedures relating to format, identification, and priority
assignment shall govern VECP preparation. The VECP shall include the following:

         (1) A description of the difference between the existing contract requirement and that proposed, the
         comparative advantages and disadvantages of each, a justification when an item's function or characteristics are
         being altered, and the effect of the change on the end item's performance.

         (2) A list and analysis of the contract requirements that must be changed if the VECP is accepted, including
         any suggested specification revisions.

         (3) A separate, detailed cost estimate for (i) the affected portions of the existing contract requirement and (ii)
         the VECP. The cost reduction associated with the VECP shall take into account the Contractor's allowable
         development and implementation costs, including any amount attributable to subcontracts under paragraph (h)
         below.

         (4) A description and estimate of costs the Government may incur in implementing the VECP, such as test and
         evaluation and operating and support costs.

         (5) A prediction of any effects the proposed change would have on collateral costs to the agency.

         (6) A statement of the time by which a contract modification accepting the VECP must be issued in order to
         achieve the maximum cost reduction, noting any effect on the contract completion time or delivery schedule.

         (7) Identification of any previous submissions of the VECP, including the dates submitted, the agencies and
         contract numbers involved, and previous Government actions, if known.


                                                            I-17
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                    Solicitation No. R11PS60022

(d) Submission. The Contractor shall submit VECP's to the Resident Engineer at the worksite, with a copy to the
Contracting Officer.

(e) Government action. (1) The Contracting Officer shall notify the Contractor of the status of the VECP within 45
calendar days after the contracting office receives it. If additional time is required, the Contracting Officer shall notify
the Contractor within the 45-day period and provide the reason for the delay and the expected date of the decision. The
Government will process VECP's expeditiously; however, it shall not be liable for any delay in acting upon a VECP.

         (2) If the VECP is not accepted, the Contracting Officer shall notify the Contractor in writing, explaining the
         reasons for rejection. The Contractor may withdraw any VECP, in whole or in part, at any time before it is
         accepted by the Government. The Contracting Officer may require that the Contractor provide written
         notification before undertaking significant expenditures for VECP effort.

         (3) Any VECP may be accepted, in whole or in part, by the Contracting Officer's award of a modification to
         this contract citing this clause. The Contracting Officer may accept the VECP, even though an agreement on
         price reduction has not been reached, by issuing the Contractor a notice to proceed with the change. Until a
         notice to proceed is issued or a contract modification applies a VECP to this contract, the Contractor shall
         perform in accordance with the existing contract. The Contracting Officer's decision to accept or reject all or
         part of any VECP shall be final and not subject to the Disputes clause or otherwise subject to litigation under
         the Contract Disputes Act of 1978 (41 U.S.C. 601-613).

(f) Sharing.

         (1) Rates. The Government's share of savings is determined by subtracting Government costs from instant
         contract savings and multiplying the result by (i) 45 percent for fixed-price contracts or (ii) 75 percent for cost-
         reimbursement contracts.

         (2) Payment. Payment of any share due the Contractor for use of a VECP on this contract shall be authorized
         by a modification to this contract to--

                  (i) Accept the VECP;

                  (ii) Reduce the contract price or estimated cost by the amount of instant contract savings; and

                  (iii) Provide the Contractor's share of savings by adding the amount calculated to the contract price or
                  fee.

(g) Subcontracts. The Contractor shall include an appropriate value engineering clause in any subcontract of $65,000 or
more and may include one in subcontracts of lesser value. In computing any adjustment in this contract's price under
paragraph (f) above, the Contractor's allowable development and implementation costs shall include any subcontractor's
allowable development and implementation costs clearly resulting from a VECP accepted by the Government under this
contract, but shall exclude any value engineering incentive payments to a subcontractor. The Contractor may choose
any arrangement for subcontractor value engineering incentive payments; provided, that these payments shall not reduce
the Government's share of the savings resulting from the VECP.

(h) Data. The Contractor may restrict the Government's right to use any part of a VECP or the supporting data by
marking the following legend on the affected parts:

"These data, furnished under the Value Engineering--Construction clause of contract_____________, shall not be
disclosed outside the Government or duplicated, used, or disclosed, in whole or in part, for any purpose other than to
evaluate a value engineering change proposal submitted under the clause. This restriction does not limit the
Government's right to use information contained in these data if it has been obtained or is otherwise available from the
Contractor or from another source without limitations."

If a VECP is accepted, the Contractor hereby grants the Government unlimited rights in the VECP and supporting data,
except that, with respect to data qualifying and submitted as limited rights technical data, the Government shall have the


                                                            I-18

rights specified in the contract modification implementing the VECP and shall appropriately mark the data. (The terms
"unlimited rights" and "limited rights" are defined in Part 27 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.)

         1452.231-81

(a) Definitions. "Acquisition cost," as used in this clause means, the Contractor's original purchase price (including
sales tax less salvage value) of an item of equipment including any and all accessories and expendable components
required for utilization the item of equipment. For used equipment which is reconditioned and recapitalized,
"acquisition cost" shall mean the adjusted amount resulting from the recapitalized value of the equipment as determined
from the Contractor's accounting records.

"Equipment," as used in this clause, means equipment in sound workable condition at the construction work site, either
owned or controlled by the Contractor or its subcontractors at any tier, or obtained from a commercial rental source, and
furnished for use under this contract.

"Ownership cost," as used in this clause, means allowances for construction equipment depreciation and cost of
facilities capital.

"Operating cost," as used in this clause, means the cost of operating equipment such as operating crew labor, servicing
labor and equipment, labor and parts for all repairs and maintenance, fuel, oil, grease, supplies, tire wear and repair.

(b) Policy. (1) Equitable adjustments made in the price of this contract pursuant to the Changes, Differing Site
Condition, Suspension of Work, or other clause of the contract, may include allowable ownership and operating costs
for equipment. In accordance with FAR 31.105(d), allowable ownership and operating costs for each piece of

                                                            I-21
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                   Solicitation No. R11PS60022

equipment, or groups of similar serial or series equipment, shall be determined using actual cost data when such data are
available from the Contractor's accounting records. When actual costs cannot be so determined or when actual cost data
for a specific element of operating cost do not contain costs for individual pieces or types of equipment, the procedures
in paragraph (d) of this clause shall be used to determine allowable costs (provided, in the case of operating costs, that
the costs are reconciled to the Contractor's total cost for that operating element). For fully depreciated equipment, the
procedures in paragraph (e) of this clause shall be used to determine allowable costs.

(c) Required data. In any request made for an equitable adjustment, the Contractor shall furnish to the Contracting
Officer -

         (1) A complete description of each item of equipment (including all accessory equipment attached thereto) to
         be used in connection with the work to be performed listing the date of manufacture, date of acquisition, make,
         model, size, capacity, mounting, and type of power;

         (2) Evidence of the acquisition cost of new or used equipment to be used including all available current and
         historical supporting cost data. If evidence of acquisition cost is not provided by the Contractor or if the data
         provided are unacceptable to the Contracting Officer, the Contracting Officer may determine the acquisition
         cost by other appropriate means.

(d) Use of the predetermined rate schedule.

         (1) When the Contracting Officer determines that allowable ownership and operating costs cannot be
         determined from the Contractor's accounting records, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers pamphlet entitled
         "Construction Equipment Ownership and Operating Expense Schedule" (Schedule) for the State in which the
         construction site is located shall be used to calculate ownership and operating rates. Copies of the Schedules
         can be obtained, free of charge, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Publications Depot, 2803 52nd
         Avenue, Hyattsville, MD 20781-1102.

         (2) For the purpose of determination of the hourly rates to be applied under this contract, working conditions
         shall be considered average, unless otherwise determined by the Contracting Officer.

         (3) Rates for equipment not listed in the Schedule shall be calculated using the formulas in the Schedule.
         Alternatively, the Contracting Officer may determine to use rates in the Schedule for equipment comparable to
         the unlisted equipment, including horsepower and auxiliary features.

(e) Fully depreciated equipment. No depreciation or rental cost shall be allowed on equipment fully depreciated by the
Contractor or by any division, subsidiary, parent company, or affiliate under common control. However, a reasonable
rate for using fully depreciated equipment may be allowed by the Contracting Officer. Unless otherwise determined by
the Contracting Officer, such hourly rate shall not exceed a value computed by multiplying the depreciation rate for the
equipment (as shown in the Schedule table entitled "Construction Equipment Ownership and Operating Expense") by
the economic index for the year of equipment manufacture (as shown in the Schedule table entitled "Economic Indexes
for Construction Equipment"), divided by the economic index correspondingly with the year the Schedule is published.
The year used for the basis of the rates in the Schedule is indicated in the table entitled "Equipment Age Adjustment
Factors for Ownership Costs." Idle or standby time will not be paid for fully depreciated equipment.

(f) Idle or standby time. Equipment ownership costs for idle or standby time of equipment not fully depreciated shall
be determined as follows:

         (1) The allowable rate shall be made at 50 percent of the hourly rate for ownership costs if actual cost data are
         used. The maximum hours per week allowed shall not exceed 40 hours or the amount of hours regularly
         worked by the Contractor, whichever is less. No allowance shall be made for Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays,
         when work is not actually performed.

         (2) If actual cost data cannot be determined, the rate shall be computed in accordance with the Schedule.

         (3) No costs shall be allowed for time when the equipment would have been otherwise idle or was not in good
         operating condition.

         (4) Periods of time less than 2 hours on which equipment is down for normal and regular ser-vicing and for
         minor field repair or field maintenance shall be considered by the Contractor to be operating time rather than
         idle or standby time and such periods shall not be deducted from use or operating time.

         (5) No costs are allowable for fully depreciated equipment.

         (1) In accordance with paragraph (g) of the Payments under Fixed Price Construction Contracts clause of this
         contract and upon submission of a proper invoice, the Government will reimburse the Contractor for the total
         amount of premiums paid for performance and payment bonds as required by the Performance and Payment

I.24     WBR 1452.233-82              NOTICE OF PROPOSED PARTNERING                                         MAY 1994

Reclamation policy is to try to resolve all contractual issues in controversy by mutal agreement through the use of an
appropriate alternative disputes resolution process. Thus to most effectively complete the work required under the
future contract, the Bureau of Reclamation proposes to mutually form a voluntary Partnering arrangement with the
Contractor. This bilateral relationship would strive for mutual trust, dedication to common goals, and a understanding
of each other's individual expectations and values. The expected benefits would include improved efficiency, cost
effectiveness and innovation between all parties to ensure a quality deliveryable that is completed on time and within
budget. Any cost associated with implementing this Partnering arrangement will be agreed to by both parties and will
be shared equally, with no change in contract price. Additional information on Partnering and suggested
implementation procedures are contained in the Bureau of Reclamation "Partnering" guide book, that is available from
the contracting officer.

I.25     WBR 1452.236-84                 PRESERVATION OF CULTURAL RESOURCES                                  FEBRUARY 2000

(a) General. Federal legislation provides for the protection and preservation of cultural resources that may be impacted
or altered as a result of any Federal project, activity, or program or federally licensed or assisted project, activity, or
program.

(b) Discovery of Resources. Should the Contractor, or any of the Contractor's employees, subcontractors, or parties
operating or associated with the Contractor, in the performance of this contract discover evidence of possible cultural
resources, the Contractor shall immediately cease work at that location and provide oral notification to the Contracting

                                                           I-24
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                    Solicitation No. R11PS60022

Officer, giving location and nature of the findings. The Contractor shall forward a written report of findings to the
Contracting Officer within 48 hours.

         (1) If a cultural resource is determined by Reclamation to be a Native American cultural item, then the
         Contractor shall cease the activity in the area of the discovery, make a reasonable effort to protect the items
         discovered, and wait for written approval from the Contracting Officer before resuming activity. This
         requirement is prescribed under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA).
         Many States have "burial laws" that apply to non-Federal and non-Indian lands; the Contractor is responsible
         for complying with applicable state law when operating on non-Federal and non-Indian lands.

         (2) If the discovery occurs on tribal lands, the Contractor shall immediately orally notify the responsible tribal
         official and the Contracting Officer and follow with written confirmation within 2 days to the responsible tribal
         official and the Contracting Officer. (The Reclamation office will supply the name and phone number of the
         tribal official. This information also can be obtained at <http://web.cast.uark.edu/other/nps/nacd>.)

         (3) The Contractor shall exercise care so as not to disturb or damage any cultural resources discovered during
         the execution of this contract, and shall provide such cooperation and assistance as may be necessary to
         preserve the findings for removal or other disposition by Reclamation. The Contractor shall not resume work
         in the area of a discovery until written notice to proceed is received from the Contracting Officer.

(c) Destruction of Archaeological Resources. Any person who excavates, removes, damages, alters or defaces or
attempts to excavate, remove, damage, or otherwise alter or deface any archaeological resource located on public lands
or Indian lands is subject to a maximum of five years in prison and $250,000 fine, as prescribed under Sections 6 and 7
of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act. State law may provide other penalties on non-Federal lands.

d) Approval of Use Areas and Borrow Sources. If the Contractor proposes to use a location other than an approved
location (approved locations to be provided by the Contracting Officer), the location(s) must first be approved for use
by the Contracting Officer. When considering an unapproved use area or borrow source, the Contractor shall submit a
map showing the location to the Contracting Officer at least 45 calender days in advance of any proposed use. The
Contractor or his subcontractors shall take no action to use or alter the proposed location until written approval is
provided by the Contracting Officer.

(e) Compensation for Delays. Where appropriate by reason of discovery, the Contracting Officer may order changes in
the schedule or work. If such delays or changes are ordered, any equitable adjustment under the contract will be
provided in accordance with the applicable clauses of the contract.

(f) Subcontractors. The Contractor shall insert this clause in all subcontracts that involve performance of work on job
site terrain.

(g) Cost. Except as provided in subsection e above, the cost of complying with this contract clause shall be included in
the prices offered in the schedule for other items of work.

(h) Government Access. The Contractor's arrangement with landowners shall permit the Government or its
representatives access to the land to identify cultural resources and conduct appropriate inspections during the
Contractor's use of the area or during material procurement.

(i) Definitions.

         (1) "Cultural items" as defined by NAGPRA include Native American human remains, funerary objects, sacred
         objects, and objects of cultural patrimony.

         (2) "Cultural resources" is a broad term that includes prehistoric, historic, architectural, and traditional cultural
         properties; specific items include, but are not limited to, human skeletal remains, archaeological artifacts,
         records, and material remains related to such properties.




                                                             I-25
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

        (3) "Funerary objects" means Native American items that, as part of the death rite or ceremony of a culture, are
        reasonably believed to have been placed intentionally at the time of death or later with or near individual
        human remains.

        (4) "Human remains" means the physical remains of the body of a person.

        (5) "Native American" means of, or relating to, a tribe, people, or culture that is indigenous to the United
        States.

        (6) "Sacred objects" means Native American items that are specific ceremonial objects needed by traditional
        Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions by their present-day
        adherents. These items are specifically limited to objects that were devoted to a traditional Native American
        religious ceremony or ritual and which have religious significance or function in the continued observance or
        renewal of such ceremony.

        (7) "Objects of cultural patrimony" means Native American items having ongoing historical, traditional, or
        cultural importance central to the Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization itself, rather than property
        owned by an individual tribal or organization member. These objects are of such central importance that they
        may not be alienated, appropriated, or conveyed by any individual tribal or organization member.

I.26    WBR 1452.237-80                SECURITY REQUIREMENTS                                         OCTOBER 2006

(a) General Security Requirements:

        (1) This clause addresses security requirements, including general procedural requirements, information
        security requirements, contractor employee suitability requirements, identification card requirements, site
        security requirements, and information technology security requirements. Within this clause, COR means
        Contracting Officer's Representative. If there is no COR appointed and identified to the Contractor, the term
        instead will mean the Program Manager or any other authorized individual responsible for technical oversight
        under the contract. "Work site" means the Government facility, office, construction site, and any other area
        within the Government office or facility that the Contractor must access to accomplish work under this
        contract.

        (2) The work performed under this contract shall only be accomplished by individuals (in the employment of
        the Contractor or any subcontractors) whose conduct and behavior is consistent with the efficiency of the
        Federal Service and the requirements of this contract, and who are acceptable to the CO. If Reclamation finds
        a Contractor employee to be unsuitable or unfit for his or her assigned duties, the CO will direct the Contractor
        to remove the individual from the contract and access to the Federal facility at which the contract activities are
        occurring.

        (3) The Contractor's employees governed by this contract may need access to sensitive information and/or may
        need access to designated Controlled Access Areas (CAAs). The Federal Government (Government) reserves
        the right, in its sole discretion, to determine suitability of Contractor personnel and deny access to any sensitive
        information or project specific area to any personnel for any cause.

        (4) The Contractor is responsible for informing and ensuring compliance by its employees with any applicable
        security procedures of the Government facility where work may be performed under this contract.

        (5) Any Contractor employee that will have access to a Federally-controlled facility or information system will
        be required to have a Government-issued identification card consisting of either a Personal Identity
        Verification (PIV) Card, a temporary identification card, or a visitor badge. During performance of the
        contract, the Contractor shall keep the COR apprised of any changes in personnel, or changes in personnel
        access or duration, to ensure that performance is not delayed by compliance with credentialing processes.

        (6) A Contractor employee will not be provided access to a Government facility or information system until a
        Government PIV Card, temporary identification card, or visitor identification badge has been issued to the
        Contractor employee. For those individuals that will be receiving a PIV Card, the Government may, at its

                                                           I-26
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

        discretion, issue a temporary identification card or visitor identification badge after the background
        investigation forms have been received and the investigation is initiated.

        (7) All Contractor employees shall access the facility via the facility's entry screening system and visibly
        display the Government-issued PIV Card, temporary identification card, or visitor identification badge at all
        times. Contractor employees must visibly wear the Government-issued identification card at all times they are
        on Government facilities. Contractor employees are responsible for the safekeeping of all Government-issued
        identification cards, whether on-site or off-site. Cards that have been lost, damaged, or stolen must be reported
        to the COR within 24 hours. The Contractor shall return all identification cards and card keys and any other
        Government property and information upon completion of performance or when personnel depart permanently
        or for a period of 7 days or more. The Contractor may be required to turn in access control cards or
        identification cards on a daily basis.

        (8) Misuse or loss of access control or identification cards, or failure to comply with required surrender of such
        cards may, at Government discretion, result in Contractor personnel being denied access to the work site, at no
        cost to Government. The Contractor may be charged up to $500 for each occurrence for any required
        replacement of Government-issued access control or identification cards due to loss or misuse. At the end of
        contract performance, or when a Contractor employee is no longer working under this contract, the Contractor
        shall ensure that all access control and identification cards are returned to the COR.

        (9) All Contractor personnel, including subcontractor personnel, with access to the work site shall be U.S.
        citizens or foreign individuals legally residing in, or legally admitted to, the U.S. At the direction of the COR,
        the Contractor shall provide to the COR, in writing, the name and nationality of all non-U.S. citizens working
        under this contract. For those individuals with access to the work site, the Contractor shall also provide
        documentation that the foreign individual is legally residing in, or has been legally admitted to, the U.S.

        (10) The Contractor shall report all contacts with entities, individuals, and counsel/representatives (including
        foreign entities and foreign nationals) who seek in any way to obtain unauthorized access to sensitive
        information or areas. The Contractor shall report any violations of contract provisions, laws, executive orders,
        regulations, and guidance to the CO. The Contractor shall report any information raising a doubt as to whether
        an individual's eligibility for continued employment or access to sensitive information is consistent with the
        interests of National Security and the Public Trust.

        (11) Unsanctioned, negligent, or willful inappropriate action on the part of the Contractor (or its employees)
        may result in termination of the contract or removal of some Contractor employees from Reclamation facilities
        at no cost to the Government. These actions include, but are not limited to, exploration of a sensitive system
        and/or information, introduction of unauthorized and/or malicious software, or failure to follow prescribed
        access control policies and/or security procedures. Failure to comply with Reclamation policies, procedures, or
        other published security requirements may result in termination of the contract or removal of some contracted
        employees from Reclamation buildings and/or facilities at no cost to the Government.

        (12) All provisions of this clause shall equally apply to all subcontractors. The Contractor shall incorporate the
        substance of this clause in all subcontracts.

        (13) These security requirements apply to all sections of this Contract including Contract Drawings and other
        Contract Specifications as applicable. Related documents include other general provisions of Construction or
        Operations and Maintenance type Contracts, including FAR clauses by reference or as amended by related
        documents.

(b) Information Security Requirements.

        (1) The term "sensitive information" means any information which warrants a degree of protection and
        administrative control as defined by Reclamation or that meets the criteria for exemption from public
        disclosure set forth under Sections 552 and 552a of Title 5, United States Code: the Freedom of Information
        Act and the Privacy Act. Sensitive information is generally categorized as FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY
        (FOUO) information, but in some cases may include other unclassified information. (The protection of
        National Classified information is beyond the scope of this clause. If any work on classified information is

                                                           I-27
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

        required under this contract, it is addressed under other contract clauses.) The Contractor shall protect this type
        of information from unauthorized release into public domain, or to unauthorized persons, organizations, or
        subcontractors. Information which, either alone or in aggregate, is deemed sensitive by Reclamation shall be
        handled and protected in accordance with Reclamation Directives and Standards for Identifying and
        Safeguarding FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY (FOUO) Information, which is available at
        http://www.usbr.gov/recman/DandS.html#sle.

        (2) Any Government-furnished information/material does not become the property of the Contractor and may
        be withdrawn at any time. Upon expiration of the contract, all documents released to the Contractor and any
        material created using data from such documents shall be returned to the COR for final disposition. Only with
        prior authorization from the CO may the Contractor retain the material. The Contractor or subcontractor shall
        not disclose or release the materials provided to the Contractor to any individuals of the Contractor's
        organization not directly engaged in providing services under the contract or that do not have a valid need-to-
        know. All technical data provided to the Contractor by the Government shall be protected from public or
        private disclosure in accordance with the markings printed on them. All other information relating to the items
        to be delivered or the services to be performed under this contract shall not be disclosed by any means without
        prior approval of the CO. Prohibited dissemination or disclosure includes, but is not limited to: permitting
        access to such information by foreign nationals or by immigrant aliens who may be employed by the
        Contractor, publication of technical or scientific papers, advertising, and disclosure to Contractor staff not
        investigated and deemed acceptable at the appropriate contract/information sensitivity level, or any other
        proposed public release. The Contractor shall maintain, and furnish upon demand of the CO, records of the
        names of individuals who have access to sensitive material in its custody. All questions regarding information
        security, access, and control shall be referred to the COR.

        (3) The Contractor shall not release to anyone outside the Contractor's organization any sensitive, or otherwise
        protected information, regardless of medium in which it is contained (for example, film, tape, document,
        electronic), pertaining to any part of this contract or any Reclamation program or activity, unless the CO has
        given prior written approval. This includes, but is not limited to, news releases, marketing promotions, articles,
        interviews, reports, and any other media releases. Requests for approval shall identify the specific information
        to be released, the medium to be used, the purpose for the release, and a description of the need-to-know. The
        Contractor shall submit its request to the CO before the proposed date for release. Subcontractors shall submit
        requests for authorization to release through the prime Contractor to the CO.

        (4) The Contractor shall notify the COR immediately when known or suspected loss/compromise of sensitive
        information or other documents, notes, drawings, sketches, reports, photographs, exposed film or similar
        information which may affect the security interests of Government has occurred. This requirement extends to
        employees and other personnel working on behalf of the Contractor, and expands responsibility to include
        prompt reporting of security issues, including observed or subsequently discovered efforts by unauthorized
        persons to gain unauthorized access to sensitive information.

(c) Contractor Employee Suitability and Issuance of Government Identification Cards:

        (1) Performance of this contract requires Contractor personnel to have a Federal Government-issued Personal
        Identification Verification (PIV) Card before being allowed unsupervised access to a Federally-controlled
        facility or information system.

        (2) At the Government's sole discretion, the Government may issue a temporary identification card or visitor
        identification badge, in lieu of a PIV Card, under one of the following conditions:

                 (i) The individual will only be associated with Reclamation for a period of 180 days or less, will not
                 have access to sensitive information, and any access to a Controlled Access Area or Federal-
                 controlled information system will be fully supervised. The 180 calendar day period begins on the
                 first day of the individual's affiliation with Reclamation (in this case, the date that the individual's
                 contract performance begins) and ends exactly 180 days later, regardless of the number of times the
                 individual actually accesses a Government facility or information system.



                                                           I-28
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

                 (ii) The individual will only have sporadic access to Federal facilities and information systems and
                 will not have access to sensitive information or any Reclamation Controlled Access Area or Federal-
                 controlled information system will be fully supervised.

                 (iii) The individual will work exclusively outdoors, will not have access to sensitive information, and
                 any access to a Reclamation Controlled Access Area or Federal-controlled information system will be
                 fully supervised.

                 (iv) In paragraphs (i) through (iii), supervised access means the individual's access to, and movement
                 within, a facility is monitored and controlled sufficiently to prevent access to any unauthorized areas,
                 equipment, or information; and the individual's access to an information system is monitored and
                 controlled sufficiently to ensure appropriate use of the system and information, and to prevent access
                 to any unauthorized systems or information. Supervision must be performed by an individual with an
                 active Government-issued PIV Card.

        (3) The Contractor shall furnish to the COR an alphabetical list of contract personnel, to include
        subcontractors, who will require access to a Government facility or information system. The list shall provide
        the full name, social security number, date of birth, place of birth, purpose or job title, and the estimated
        duration of access. If the Contractor believes an individual should be issued a temporary identification card or
        visitor identification badge in lieu of a PIV Card based on the conditions in paragraph (4), then the Contractor
        must also submit a sufficient written justification as to why the specific individual or individuals will not need
        a PIV Card. The Contractor shall provide this information before the start of contract performance or before
        the start of an individual's performance when there is a change or addition of personnel, with sufficient time to
        ensure that performance is not delayed by compliance with credentialing processes.

        (4) Any contract employees that will be issued a temporary identification card or visitor identification badge, in
        lieu of a PIV Card, at the Government's sole discretion, will be subject to the following credentialing
        procedures:


        (5) Any contract employees that will be issued a PIV Card will be subject to the following credentialing
        procedures:

                 (i) For Contractor employees needing a PIV Card, as determined by the Government, the CO or COR
                 will provide the appropriate background investigation forms to the Contractor, or initiate the
                 electronic background investigation process, and give the Contractor instructions for completing the
                 background investigation, fingerprinting, and PIV Card process. After the background investigation
                 forms are completed, each Contractor employee shall be required to appear in person before a
                 Government PIV Registrar to submit the background investigation forms, have personal identity
                 verification documents verified, have a photograph taken, and sign the PIV Card Request Form. The
                 Contractor must make its personnel available at the place and time specified by the COR in order to
                 initiate this process. The following forms shall be used to initiate the background investigation and
                 PIV process: OPM Standard Form 85, 85P, or 86; OF 306; Fingerprint Card FD-258; Fair Credit
                 Reporting Act Authorization Form; and PIV Card Request Form (paper or web-based).

                 (ii) The cost of completing and submitting the above forms, including any charges for obtaining
                 fingerprints, shall be borne by the Contractor. The cost of the background investigation shall be borne
                 by Reclamation.

                 (iii) Contractor employees are required to give, and to authorize others to give, full, frank, and truthful
                 answers to relevant and material questions needed to reach a suitability determination. Refusal or
                 failure to furnish or authorize provision of information may constitute grounds for denial or
                 revocation of credentials. Government personnel may contact the Contractor personnel being
                 investigated in person, by telephone, or in writing, and the Contractor agrees to make them available
                 for such contact.

Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

                 (iv) For each Contractor employee that will be issued a PIV Card, the Government will conduct a
                 background investigation. The level of background investigation for each Contractor employee will be
                 determined by the Government based on the risk and sensitivity levels as described in Reclamation's
                 Personnel Security and Suitability Directives and Standards," SLE 01-01, which is available at
                 http://www.usbr.gov/recman/DandS.html#sle. At a minimum, each Contractor employee that will be
                 issued a PIV Card will receive a National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (NACI) Background
                 Investigation. The minimum standards which will be used in suitability determinations are contained
                 in the DOI Departmental Manual Part 441, Chapter 5, which is available at
                 http://elips.doi.gov/app_DM/act_getfiles.cfm?relnum=3862.

                 (v) Each Contractor employee in a position designated as higher than Low Risk Non-Sensitive shall
                 be reinvestigated on a periodic basis as described in Reclamation's Personnel Security and Suitability
                 Directives and Standards. A reinvestigation may also be initiated when the Contractor or the
                 Government believes that a particular individual's continued ability to meet the contract's minimum
                 standards is in question.

                 (vi) If a Contractor employee has worked under a Federal agency contract within the past two years,
                 and that contract required a successfully-adjudicated background investigation at the same risk level
                 as (or higher than) this contract, further investigation may not be necessary. The Contractor shall
                 provide the COR with documentation that supports the individual's previous contract work and any
                 information, including name and social security number, date of birth, and place of birth, needed for
                 Government verification of previous background investigation.

                 (vii) If the final adjudication is unfavorable on a Contractor employee, or if Reclamation finds a
                 Contractor employee to be unsuitable or unfit for his or her assigned duties, the CO will direct the
                 Contractor to remove the individual from the contract and access to the Federal facility at which the
                 contract activities are occurring. In the event of a disagreement between the Contractor and the
                 Government concerning the suitability of a particular employee to perform work under this contract,
                 the Government shall have the right of final determination. Determinations under this requirement are
                 subject to the Disputes Clause. Failure of the Contractor to comply with the requirements of this
                 clause could constitute grounds for termination for default.

                 (viii) Reclamation will not allow a Contractor employee access to their investigation files. An
                 individual may request, under the provisions of the Privacy Act and/or Freedom of Information Act,
                 copies of their files from the investigative agency (Office of Personnel Management). Reclamation
                 will not release a copy of any investigative file, in whole or part, to the Contractor or any Contractor
                 representative.

                 (ix) Upon completion of a favorably-adjudicated background investigation, Contractor employees will
                 be issued a Government PIV Card. When the PIV Card is printed, each Contractor employee shall be
                 required to appear in person before the Reclamation PIV Card Issuer for identity verification, to sign
                 the PIV Request Form, and receipt of the PIV Card.

(d) Site Security Requirements

        (1) General Description. This section provides provisions to ensure the full security integrity of the facility and
        personnel working at the facility. The work of this section may involve interfaces with a number of
        Government security personnel, normally coordinated through the designated COR. The Contractor is
        responsible for ensuring that activities are accomplished in a manner that complies fully with applicable
        security statutes, regulations, policies, directives, and standards.

        (2) Government Security Personnel. When and where applicable, security personnel may be assigned to control
        access, secure materials or activities at the work site, or escort Contractor personnel in CAAs or other sensitive
        areas. Personnel may include security managers, security guards, security contractors acting as agents of the
        Government, law enforcement personnel, or others. These individuals may be used to ensure the overall
        security and integrity of the site or building and may provide controlled access to designated CAAs. These
        individuals may conduct inspection of all workers, vehicles, equipment, or materials entering, or re-entering

                                                           I-30
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

        the work site. The inspection may be done with walk-through and/or hand-held metal detectors or by other
        means as may be deemed necessary by Reclamation.

        (3) Contractor Guard Force. At the Contractor's sole discretion, and at the Contractor's own expense, with prior
        written Government approval, a Contractor may be authorized to hire its own guards to secure Contractor-
        owned equipment and/or to protect Contractor employees or subcontractors. If such a relationship is permitted,
        the Contractor shall be exclusively liable for all guard activities to include action or inaction of Contractor's
        guard personnel. The Government will not offer nor provide any indemnification. Contractor shall be solely
        responsible for guards at all times to include any supervision, oversight, and for the development of local guard
        orders and or procedures. The Contractor shall be responsible for coordinating all guard activities with the
        COR and shall develop and submit to the COR, for advance approval, any guard orders and/or guard
        procedures.

        (4) Additional Security-Related Submittals

                 (i) Visitor List. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR, in advance, notification of visit of any
                 Contractor-sponsored visitor to a Government-controlled facility. This notification should be in
                 writing and must include the purpose or nature of the visit, the full name of the visitor, and the full
                 name and phone number of the designated sponsor who will be physically responsible for escorting
                 the visitor for the duration of the scheduled visit.

                 (ii) Delivery Schedule. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR, in advance, a schedule for all
                 deliveries. This list shall include estimated delivvery date, time, nature of the materials being
                 delivered, and - where available - the name of delivery company and type of vehicle.

                 (iii) Explosive Security Plan. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR for approval, in advance, an
                 explosive security plan at any work site where explosives will be stored or used.

        (5) General Provisions.

                 (i) General. The Contractor shall comply with the Government's site security procedures as specified,
                 and as requested subsequent to award of Contract. Failure of the Contractor to comply with required
                 access controls, information handling procedures, or any other security controls or procedures, may
                 result in revocation of Contractor personnel access to the work site. The Government reserves the
                 right to modify or clarify security provisions of this contract based on changing political and civil
                 circumstances, and perceived threats to personnel or the facility.

                 (ii) Security Facilities and Equipment. The Contractor shall use security facilities and equipment only
                 for the purposes intended and as directed by the COR. The Contractor shall comply with the
                 Government's instructions for use of secure storage areas, site enclosure and gates, temporary security
                 lighting, building space enclosure, and lockup devices and systems established for detection,
                 monitoring, signaling, and alarming field office facilities. Measures necessary to secure the integrity
                 of materials, equipment, and tools installed or used in furtherance of this contract shall be at no cost to
                 the Government.

                 (iii) Security Personnel Availability/Work Schedules. The Contractor shall notify the COR at least 24
                 hours in advance of any projected work which might impact on security or require the scheduling of
                 extended security personnel support. The Contractor shall provide a weekly work schedule which may
                 have security implications, such as anticipated delivery of materials, use of explosives or heavy
                 machinery, and extra time needed for continuous or inherently lengthy construction or project specific
                 operations (such as concrete placement).

                 (iv) Deliveries. The Contractor shall provide at least one day's advance notice of major deliveries,
                 including time of arrival and trucks/carriers/documentation to be expected for arrival at work site. The
                 Contractor shall provide reasonable advanced notice of deliveries which must be
                 accommodated/accepted at times other than the Government's established working hours. Failure to
                 provide adequate advanced notice may result in delivery delays at the Contractor's expense.

Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                 Solicitation No. R11PS60022



                (v) Site Access. All Contractor personnel will be issued appropriate identification and must comply
                with all local access control procedures. The Government reserves the exclusive right to refuse or
                disallow any vehicular or pedestrian access to any Government-controlled facility or for any
                deliveries to the work site, regardless if access was scheduled or unscheduled.

                (vi) Inspections and Searches. The Government reserves unqualified and unlimited right at any time to
                conduct security-related inspections or searches of work, material, equipment, personnel, and
                temporary facilities at the work site. The Contractor shall afford unrestricted access to work and allow
                surveillance and inspection by any Government personnel as authorized by the COR. The
                Government reserves the right to conduct searches of articles and personal effects of all Contractor
                personnel, both at point of entry and exit from the work site or Government facility. All Contractor
                personnel entering and leaving the work site may be required to pass through a Walk-Through-Metal-
                Detector device and/or other detection devices.

                (vii) After Duty Hours. No Contractor personnel shall be permitted access to the work site after the
                Government's established working hours without prior authorization from the Government. All
                personnel seeking access to the site after the Government's established working hours may be required
                to sign in and out in a visitor's log that may be maintained by the on duty security personnel (if any).

                (viii) Access Procedures at CAAs. In some instances, the Contractor may be required to erect
                temporary security barriers and doors to isolate a CAA, as instructed by the Government. The
                Contractor may be required to install locks and thereafter control access. The Contractor shall comply
                with the Government's requirement for limited and escorted access to a CAA. The Contractor shall
                notify the COR at least one day prior to each requested access to a CAA that is outside of the
                Government's established working hours.

                (ix) Reported Violations. Where an indication, report, or observation of unauthorized access or
                performance of unauthorized work has occurred, the Government reserves the right to stop work and
                deny access until the circumstance and work can be investigated, inspected, tested, and resolved. The
                entire cost of such stoppages and resolutions shall be borne by Contractor, except when alleged
                violations of established security requirements, after investigation, are found not to be the fault of the
                Contractor.

                (x) Briefings. Contractor personnel who will be assigned to this project, and who will have access to
                the work site, may be required to attend Government-conducted security briefings. The Government
                reserves the right to conduct security briefings for Contractor personnel and visitors at all levels of
                involvement in performance of work and maintenance of security. Required briefings may include,
                but are not limited to, the following: Information Security, Site Security Requirements and
                Procedures, Delivery Methods and Inspections, Storage Requirements, Reporting Requirements,
                Supervisory Procedures, Contractor Employee Conduct, Visitor Control, and Threats.

                (xi) Key Control. Control of keys/access codes and lock combinations is essential for the
                Government's project security. The Contractor shall not allow keys or access codes to be duplicated or
                removed from the work site, nor allow lock combinations to be divulged without specific written
                advanced authorization from the COR. Such loss of control, observed or suspected, may result in a
                requirement to change locks involved at the Contractor's expense. At the direction of the COR, the
                Contractor shall provide duplicate keys and lock combinations to Government security personnel
                when requested for the purpose of security inspections and emergency actions, including
                keys/combinations/access codes needed for unrestricted access to every area and element of the
                project. The Contractor may be required to establish a key control program that is acceptable to the
                Government for Government-issued keys and for heavy machinery parked at the construction site (if
                this is a construction contract).

                (xii) Vehicle Control. In general, parking of vehicles on the work site shall not be permitted, except
                for tractors, cranes, and similar equipment used directly in performance of work, for delivery of
                materials/supplies, and for removal of waste and surplus material. The Government may designate an

                                                          I-32
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

                  approved contractor employee parking area. Upon entering the work site, vehicles and drivers may be
                  subject to search and inspection. The Contractor shall obtain authorization from the COR to park the
                  Contractor's official vehicles and motorized vehicular construction equipment that are
                  required/desired to be parked on the work site. Vehicles in violation may be towed off the work site at
                  the Contractor's expense. Where Government-designated employee parking is not available, parking
                  of construction employees' automobiles and similar transportation vehicles may be excluded from the
                  work site. It is the Contractor's responsibility to arrange for suitable accommodation for these
                  vehicles.

                  (xiii) Prohibited/Restricted Items. Prohibited/restricted items and activities on the work site include
                  but are not limited to the following: firearms and other weapons, except as specifically authorized by
                  the COR; drugs, including narcotics, barbiturates, marijuana, alcoholic beverages, and similar
                  substances, except for use with valid medical prescription; and explosives.

                  (xiv) Exceptions for Explosives. When needed for use in specifically limited amounts and controlled
                  circumstances for construction work, explosives may be brought onsite with written prior
                  authorization from the COR. As a hazardous material, the Contractor shall treat the use of explosives
                  in accordance with regulations and guidance provided by Federal, State, and local authorities. The
                  storage of explosives shall be in accordance with requirements of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
                  and Firearms or the State in which they are stored. If onsite storage of explosives is necessary,
                  explosives shall be stored at a pre-designated, secure site approved by the COR. Prior to Government
                  approval of storage, the Contractor shall develop and submit to the COR a complete
                  storage/security/retrieval plan for approval. The storage/security plan can be included in a "Blasting
                  Safety Plan." The plan shall make accommodations for surveillance, detection, and response.
                  Explosives firing systems shall be stored off-site and under no circumstances shall be stored together
                  with explosives.

                  (xv) Photography. The use of photographic equipment and taking of photographs shall only be
                  allowed as authorized by the COR.

(e) Information Technology Security - Basic Security Requirements:

         (1) The Contractor shall ensure that its employees, in performance of the contract, receive annual IT security
         training in Reclamation IT Security policies, procedures, computer ethics, and best practices in accordance
         with Reclamation Directive IRM 08-09, September 21, 2001, Subject: Reclamation Information Technology
         (IT) Security Program (ITSP): IT Security Awareness and Training Requirements. This document is available,
         upon request, from the CO. The Contractor may use web-based training available from Reclamation to meet
         this requirement.

         (2) The Contractor shall afford Reclamation, including the Department of the Interior Office of Inspector
         General, access to the Contractor's and subcontractors' facilities, installations, operations, documentation,
         databases, and personnel used in performance of the contract. Access shall be provided to the extent required
         to carry out a program of IT inspection, investigation, and audit to safeguard against threats and hazards to the
         integrity, availability, and confidentiality of Reclamation data or to the function of computer systems operated
         on behalf of Reclamation, and to preserve evidence of computer crime. If the Contractor has a question
         regarding the access rights or identity of Government employees requesting access to Contractor-operated IT
         facilities, it should be referred to the COR for resolution before access is granted.

         (3) In addition to the notification requirements (b)(4), the Contractor shall immediately notify the COR, of all
         cyber-related incidents (including the compromise of Contractor- or Government-owned systems for which the
         Contractor bears operational or management responsibility), regardless of location.

operation to which welding is incidental.
================================================================

Unlisted classifications needed for work not included within
the scope of the classifications listed may be added after
award only as provided in the labor standards contract clauses
(29CFR 5.5 (a) (1) (ii)).

----------------------------------------------------------------

In the listing above, the "SU" designation means that rates
listed under the identifier do not reflect collectively
bargained wage and fringe benefit rates. Other designations
indicate unions whose rates have been determined to be
prevailing.

----------------------------------------------------------------

             WAGE DETERMINATION APPEALS PROCESS

1.) Has there been an initial decision in the matter? This can
be:

*   an existing published wage determination
*   a survey underlying a wage determination
*   a Wage and Hour Division letter setting forth a position on
    a wage determination matter
*   a conformance (additional classification and rate) ruling

On survey related matters, initial contact, including requests
for summaries of surveys, should be with the Wage and Hour
Regional Office for the area in which the survey was conducted
because those Regional Offices have responsibility for the
Davis-Bacon survey program. If the response from this initial
contact is not satisfactory, then the process described in 2.)
and 3.) should be followed.

With regard to any other matter not yet ripe for the formal
process described here, initial contact should be with the
Branch of Construction Wage Determinations. Write to:

         Branch of Construction Wage Determinations
         Wage and Hour Division
         U.S. Department of Labor
         200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
         Washington, DC 20210

2.) If the answer to the question in 1.) is yes, then an
interested party (those affected by the action) can request
review and reconsideration from the Wage and Hour Administrator
(See 29 CFR Part 1.8 and 29 CFR Part 7). Write to:

         Wage and Hour Administrator
         U.S. Department of Labor
         200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
         Washington, DC 20210

The request should be accompanied by a full statement of the
interested party's position and by any information (wage
payment data, project description, area practice material,
etc.) that the requestor considers relevant to the issue.

3.) If the decision of the Administrator is not favorable, an
interested party may appeal directly to the Administrative
Review Board (formerly the Wage Appeals Board). Write to:

                                                                                         Page 4 of 4

        U.S. Department of Labor
        200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
        Washington, DC 20210

4.) All decisions by the Administrative Review Board are final.

        E                       EXCEPTIONAL The contractor’s performance meets the contractual
                                requirements and exceeds many requirements.

        VG                      VERY GOOD The contractor’s performance meets contractual requirements
                                and exceeds some requirements.

        S                       SATISFACTORY No problems exist or only minor problems for which
                                solutions are in hand.

        M                       MARGINAL Problem exist for which there is doubt whether the identified
                                solution is adequate but the problem appears to be within the contractor’s
                                ability to solve.

        U                       UNSATISFACTORY Serious problems exist which may be outside the

                                satisfy contractual requirements and timely recovery is not likely.

         have the right to use the information to the extent provided in the contract."

(c) The offeror shall also specifically identify trade secret information and confidential commercial and financial
information on the pages of the proposal on which it appears and shall mark each such page with the following legend:

         "This page contains trade secrets or confidential commercial and financial information which the offeror
         believes to be exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act and which is subject to the legend
         contained on the cover page of this proposal."

(d) Information in a proposal identified by an offeror as trade secret information or confidential commercial and
financial information shall be used by the Government only for the purpose of evaluating the proposal, except that (i) if
a contract is awarded to the offeror as a result of or in connection with submission of the proposal, the Government shall
have the right to use the information as provided in the contract, and (ii) if the same information is obtained from
another source without restriction it may be used without restriction.

(e) If a request under the Freedom of Information Act seeks access to information in a proposal identified as trade
secret information or confidential commercial and financial information, full consideration will be given to the offeror's
view that the information constitutes trade secrets or confidential commercial or financial information. The offeror will
also be promptly notified of the request and given an opportunity to provide additional evidence and argument in
support of its position, unless administratively unfeasible to do so. If it is determined that information claimed by the
offeror to be trade secret information or confidential commercial or financial information is not exempt from disclosure
under the Freedom of Information Act, the offeror will be notified of this determination prior to disclosure of the
information.

(f) The Government assumes no liability for the disclosure or use of information contained in a proposal if not marked
in accordance with paragraphs (b) and (c) of this provision. If a request under the Freedom of Information Act is made
for information in a proposal not marked in accordance with paragraphs (b) and (c) of this provision, the offeror
concerned shall be promptly notified of the request and given an opportunity to provide its position to the Government.
However, failure of an offeror to mark information contained in a proposal as trade secret information or confidential

commercial or financial information will be treated by the Government as evidence that the information is not exempt
from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, absent a showing that the failure to mark was due to unusual or
extenuating circumstances, such as a showing that the offeror had intended to mark, but that markings were omitted
from the offeror's proposal due to clerical error.

(b) Offers based on the use of foreign construction materials other than those listed in (a) above may be acceptable if the
Government determines that U.S. construction material is not available, would be impracticable or constitute an
unreasonable price. Please contact the Contracting Officer with questions or comments concerning non-availability or
impracticability of U.S. material.

(c)      (1) Offers based upon use of foreign construction material for cost savings will be considered reasonable if the
         cost of each foreign construction material, plus 6 percent, is less than the cost of comparable U.S. construction
         material. The Contracting Officer shall compute the cost of each foreign construction material to include all
         delivery costs to the construction site, and any applicable duty (whether or not a duty-free entry certificate is
         issued). This evaluation shall be made for each foreign construction material included in the offer but not
         listed in subparagraph (a) above in this clause.

         (2) Any contractor cost savings from post award approval to substitute foreign construction material for U.S.
         construction material shall be passed on to the Government.

(d)      (1) This offer is based on the use of foreign construction material not listed in (a) above. For each foreign item
         proposed the offeror shall furnish the following information for the foreign material offered: item description,
         supplier, unit of measure, quantity, unit price, duty (even if a duty free certificate is issued), delivery costs, and
         total price and shall also identify information on a U.S. item comparable to the foreign item including:
         supplier, unit of measure, quantity, unit price, delivery costs and total price.

                  (2) If the Government rejects the use of foreign construction material listed under paragraph (d)(1)
         above, the Government will evaluate the Contractor's offer using the offeror's stated price for the comparable
         U.S. construction material, and the offeror shall be required to furnish such domestic construction material at
         the Contractor's originally offered price. In preaward situations, an offer which does not state a price for a
         comparable U.S. construction material will be rejected by the Government. In postaward situations an offer
         proposing foreign material which does not state the price for the comparable U.S. construction material will be
         rejected by the Government. The Contractor shall use comparable U.S. material for the project and any
         additional cost for the use of this U.S. material shall be absorbed by the Contractor.

(a) Definitions. As used in this provision--

"Discussions" are negotiations that occur after establishment of the competitive range that may, at the Contracting
Officer's discretion, result in the offeror being allowed to revise its proposal.

"In writing," "writing," or "written" means any worded or numbered expression that can be read, reproduced, and later
communicated, and includes electronically transmitted and stored information.

"Proposal modification" is a change made to a proposal before the solicitation's closing date and time, or made in
response to an amendment, or made to correct a mistake at any time before award.

"Proposal revision" is a change to a proposal made after the solicitation closing date, at the request of or as allowed by a
Contracting Officer as the result of negotiations.

"Time," if stated as a number of days, is calculated using calendar days, unless otherwise specified, and will include
Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. However, if the last day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, then the
period shall include the next working day.

(b) Amendments to solicitations. If this solicitation is amended, all terms and conditions that are not amended remain
unchanged. Offerors shall acknowledge receipt of any amendment to this solicitation by the date and time specified in
the amendment(s).

(c) Submission, modification, revision, and withdrawal of proposals. (1) Unless other methods (e.g., electronic
commerce or facsimile) are permitted in the solicitation, proposals and modifications to proposals shall be submitted in
paper media in sealed envelopes or packages (i) addressed to the office specified in the solicitation, and (ii) showing the
time and date specified for receipt, the solicitation number, and the name and address of the offeror. Offerors using
commercial carriers should ensure that the proposal is marked on the outermost wrapper with the information in
paragraphs (c)(1)(i) and (c)(1)(ii) of this provision.

         (2) The first page of the proposal must show--

                  (i) The solicitation number;

                  (ii) The name, address, and telephone and facsimile numbers of the offeror (and electronic address if
                  available);

                                                            L-5
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                     Solicitation No. R11PS60022



                 (iii) A statement specifying the extent of agreement with all terms, conditions, and provisions
                 included in the solicitation and agreement to furnish any or all items upon which prices are offered at
                 the price set opposite each item;

                 (iv) Names, titles, and telephone and facsimile numbers (and electronic addresses if available) of
                 persons authorized to negotiate on the offeror's behalf with the Government in connection with this
                 solicitation; and

                 (v) Name, title, and signature of person authorized to sign the proposal. Proposals signed by an agent
                 shall be accompanied by evidence of that agent's authority, unless that evidence has been previously
                 furnished to the issuing office.

        (3) Submission, modification, revision, and withdrawal of proposals. (i) Offerors are responsible for submitting
        proposals, and any modifications, revisions, or withdrawals, so as to reach the Government office designated in
        the solicitation by the time specified in the solicitation. If no time is specified in the solicitation, the time for
        receipt is 4:30 p.m., local time, for the designated Government office on the date that proposal or revision is
        due.

                 (ii)(A) Any proposal, modification, revision, or withdrawal received at the Government office
                 designated in the solicitation after the exact time specified for receipt of offers is ''late'' and will not be
                 considered unless it is received before award is made, the Contracting Officer determines that
                 accepting the late offer would not unduly delay the acquisition; and-

                                    (1) If it was transmitted through an electronic commerce method authorized by the
                                    solicitation, it was received at the initial point of entry to the Government
                                    infrastructure not later than 5:00 p.m. one working day prior to the date specified for
                                    receipt of proposals; or

                                    (2) There is acceptable evidence to establish that it was received at the Government
                                    installation designated for receipt of offers and was under the Government's control
                                    prior to the time set for receipt of offers; or

                                    3) It is the only proposal received.

                          (B) However, a late modification of an otherwise successful proposal that makes its terms
                          more favorable to the Government, will be considered at any time it is received and may be
                          accepted.

                 (iii) Acceptable evidence to establish the time of receipt at the Government installation includes the
                 time/date stamp of that installation on the proposal wrapper, other documentary evidence of receipt
                 maintained by the installation, or oral testimony or statements of Government personnel.

                 (iv) If an emergency or unanticipated event interrupts normal Government processes so that proposals
                 cannot be received at the office designated for receipt of proposals by the exact time specified in the
                 solicitation, and urgent Government requirements preclude amendment of the solicitation, the time
                 specified for receipt of proposals will be deemed to be extended to the same time of day specified in
                 the solicitation on the first work day on which normal Government processes resume.

                 (v) Proposals may be withdrawn by written notice received at any time before award. Oral proposals
                 in response to oral solicitations may be withdrawn orally. If the solicitation authorizes facsimile
                 proposals, proposals may be withdrawn via facsimile received at any time before award, subject to the
                 conditions specified in the provision at 52.215-5, Facsimile Proposals. Proposals may be withdrawn
                 in person by an offeror or an authorized representative, if the identity of the person requesting
                 withdrawal is established and the person signs a receipt for the proposal before award.



                                                            L-6
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                  Solicitation No. R11PS60022

         (4) Unless otherwise specified in the solicitation, the offeror may propose to provide any item or combination
         of items.

         (5) Offerors shall submit proposals in response to this solicitation in English, unless otherwise permitted by the
         solicitation, and in U.S. dollars, unless the provision at FAR 52.225-17, Evaluation of Foreign Currency
         Offers, is included in the solicitation.

         (6) Offerors may submit modifications to their proposals at any time before the solicitation closing date and
         time, and may submit modifications in response to an amendment, or to correct a mistake at any time before
         award.

         (7) Offerors may submit revised proposals only if requested or allowed by the Contracting Officer.

         (8) Proposals may be withdrawn at any time before award. Withdrawals are effective upon receipt of notice
         by the Contracting Officer.

(d) Offer expiration date. Proposals in response to this solicitation will be valid for the number of days specified on the
solicitation cover sheet (unless a different period is proposed by the offeror).

(e) Restriction on disclosure and use of data. Offerors that include in their proposals data that they do not want
disclosed to the public for any purpose, or used by the Government except for evaluation purposes, shall--

         (1) Mark the title page with the following legend: This proposal includes data that shall not be disclosed
         outside the Government and shall not be duplicated, used, or disclosed--in whole or in part--for any purpose
         other than to evaluate this proposal. If, however, a contract is awarded to this offeror as a result of--or in
         connection with-- the submission of this data, the Government shall have the right to duplicate, use, or disclose
         the data to the extent provided in the resulting contract. This restriction does not limit the Government's right
         to use information contained in this data if it is obtained from another source without restriction. The data
         subject to this restriction are contained in sheets [insert numbers or other identification of sheets]; and

         (2) Mark each sheet of data it wishes to restrict with the following legend: Use or disclosure of data contained
         on this sheet is subject to the restriction on the title page of this proposal.

(f) Contract award. (1) The Government intends to award a contract or contracts resulting from this solicitation to the
responsible offeror(s) whose proposal(s) represents the best value after evaluation in accordance with the factors and
subfactors in the solicitation.

         (2) The Government may reject any or all proposals if such action is in the Government's interest.

         (3) The Government may waive informalities and minor irregularities in proposals received.

         (4) The Government intends to evaluate proposals and award a contract without discussions with offerors
         (except clarifications as described in FAR 15.306(a)). Therefore, the offeror's initial proposal should contain
         the offeror's best terms from a cost or price and technical standpoint. The Government reserves the right to
         conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. If the Contracting
         Officer determines that the number of proposals that would otherwise be in the competitive range exceeds the
         number at which an efficient competition can be conducted, the Contracting Officer may limit the number of
         proposals in the competitive range to the greatest number that will permit an efficient competition among the
         most highly rated proposals.

         (5) The Government reserves the right to make an award on any item for a quantity less than the quantity
         offered, at the unit cost or prices offered, unless the offeror specifies otherwise in the proposal.

         (6) The Government reserves the right to make multiple awards if, after considering the additional
         administrative costs, it is in the Government's best interest to do so.



                                                            L-7
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                    Solicitation No. R11PS60022

         (7) Exchanges with offerors after receipt of a proposal do not constitute a rejection or counteroffer by the
         Government.

         (8) The Government may determine that a proposal is unacceptable if the prices proposed are materially
         unbalanced between line items or subline items. Unbalanced pricing exists when, despite an acceptable total
         evaluated price, the price of one or more contract line items is significantly overstated or understated as
         indicated by the application of cost or price analysis techniques. A proposal may be rejected if the Contracting
         Officer determines that the lack of balance poses an unacceptable risk to the Government.

         (9) If a cost realism analysis is performed, cost realism may be considered by the source selection authority in
         evaluating performance or schedule risk.

         (10) A written award or acceptance of proposal mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within
         the time specified in the proposal shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party.

         (11) If a post-award debriefing is given to requesting offerors, the Government shall disclose the following
         information, if applicable:

(i) The agency's evaluation of the significant weak or deficient factors in the debriefed offeror's offer.

(ii) The overall evaluated cost or price and technical rating of the successful and the debriefed offeror and past
performance information on the debriefed offeror.

(iii) The overall ranking of all offerors, when any ranking was developed by the agency during source selection.

(iv) A summary of the rationale for award.

as defined in paragraph (a)(1)(ii) of the FAR clause at 52.222- 6, Davis-Bacon Act, of this solicitation.

         (2) If the offeror is unsure if a planned work site satisfies the criteria for a secondary site of the work, the
         offeror shall request a determination from the Contracting Officer.

(b)(1) If the wage determination provided by the Government for work at the primary site of the work is not applicable
to the secondary site of the work, the offeror shall request a wage determination from the Contracting Officer.

         (2) The due date for receipt of offers will not be extended as a result of an offeror's request for a wage
         determination for a secondary site of the work.

                       EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR CONSTRUCTION

(a) The offeror's attention is called to the Equal Opportunity clause and the Affirmative Action Compliance
Requirements for Construction clause of this solicitation.

(b) The goals for minority and female participation, expressed in percentage terms for the Contractor's aggregate
workforce in each trade on all construction work in the covered area, are as follows:

                        Goals for Minority Participation              Goals for Female Participation
                                     6.9%                                         6.9%

These goals are applicable to all the Contractor's construction work performed in the covered area. If the Contractor
performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, the Contractor shall apply the
goals established for the geographical area where the work is actually performed. Goals are published periodically in the
Federal Register in notice form, and these notices may be obtained from any Office of Federal Contract Compliance
Programs office.

(c) The Contractor's compliance with Executive Order 11246, as amended, and the regulations in 41 CFR 60-4 shall be
based on (1) its implementation of the Equal Opportunity clause, (2) specific affirmative action obligations required by
the clause entitled "Affirmative Action Compliance Requirements for Construction,'' and (3) its efforts to meet the
goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length
of the contract, and in each trade. The Contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly
on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from Contractor to Contractor, or from
project to project, for the sole purpose of meeting the Contractor's goals shall be a violation of the contract, Executive
Order 11246, as amended, and the regulations in 41 CFR 60-4. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the
total work hours performed.

(d) The Contractor shall provide written notification to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Federal Contract Compliance,
U.S. Department of Labor, within 10 working days following award of any construction subcontract in excess of
$10,000 at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from this solicitation. The notification shall list the

(1) Name, address, and telephone number of the subcontractor;

(2) Employer's identification number of the subcontractor;

(3) Estimated dollar amount of the subcontract;

                                                             L-9

                          MATERIALS

(a) Definitions. "Commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) item," "construction material," "domestic construction
material," and "foreign construction material," as used in this provision, are defined in the clause of this solicitation
entitled "Buy American Act-Construction Materials" (Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause 52.225-9).

(b) Requests for determinations of inapplicability. An offeror requesting a determination regarding the inapplicability of
the Buy American Act should submit the request to the Contracting Officer in time to allow a determination before
submission of offers. The offeror shall include the information and applicable supporting data required by paragraphs
(c) and (d) of the clause at FAR 52.225-9 in the request. If an offeror has not requested a determination regarding the
inapplicability of the Buy American Act before submitting its offer, or has not received a response to a previous request,
the offeror shall include the information and supporting data in the offer.

(c) Evaluation of offers. (1) The Government will evaluate an offer requesting exception to the requirements of the Buy
American Act, based on claimed unreasonable cost of domestic construction material, by adding to the offered price the
appropriate percentage of the cost of such foreign construction material, as specified in paragraph (b)(3)(i) of the clause
at FAR 52.225-9.

         (2) If evaluation results in a tie between an offeror that requested the substitution of foreign construction
         material based on unreasonable cost and an offeror that did not request an exception, the Contracting Officer
         will award to the offeror that did not request an exception based on unreasonable cost.

(d) Alternate offers. (1) When an offer includes foreign construction material not listed by the Government in this
solicitation in paragraph (b)(2) of the clause at FAR 52.225-9, the offeror also may submit an alternate offer based on
use of equivalent domestic construction material.

         (2) If an alternate offer is submitted, the offeror shall submit a separate Standard Form 1442 for the alternate
         offer, and a separate price comparison table prepared in accordance with paragraphs (c) and (d) of the clause at
         FAR 52.225-9 for the offer that is based on the use of any foreign construction material for which the
         Government has not yet determined an exception applies.

         (3) If the Government determines that a particular exception requested in accordance with paragraph (c) of the
         clause at FAR 52.225-9 does not apply, the Government will evaluate only those offers based on use of the
         equivalent domestic construction material, and the offeror shall be required to furnish such domestic
         construction material. An offer based on use of the foreign construction material for which an exception was
         requested--

                  (i) Will be rejected as nonresponsive if this acquisition is conducted by sealed bidding; or

                  (ii) May be accepted if revised during negotiations.

L.16     WBR 1452.211-80        NOTICE OF INTENT TO ACQUIRE METRIC PRODUCTS                            MARCH 1993
                                AND SERVICES

(a) Metric Transition Plan. The Department of the Interior on December 6, 1991, issued a Metric Transition Program
(Part 758 Department Manual Chapter 1) to establish and describe the program's policies and responsibilities. The
Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), has developed a Metric Transition Plan to implement metrication in
Reclamation. This plan describes Reclamation's overall strategy for using the metric system, defines general
requirements and procedures for carrying out the transition, and details the tasks with milestones for Reclamation
offices to complete.

(b) The Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (Trade Act).

         (1) Section 5164 of Public Law 100-418, the Trade Act, amended the Metric Conversion Act of 1975 and
         designated the metric system of weights and measures for United States trade and commerce.

         (2) The Trade Act establishes September 30, 1992, as the implementation date (to the extent economically
         feasible) for Federal agencies to use the metric system of measurement in its procurements, grants, and other
         business-related activities.

         (3) The Trade Act permits exceptions to the use of the metric system to the extent that such use is impractical
         or is likely to cause significant inefficiencies or loss of markets to United States firms, such as when foreign
         competitors are producing competing products in non-metric units.

         (4) As a result of the Trade Act, the President issued Executive Order 12770 dated July 25, 1991, to implement
         the congressional designation of the metric system as the preferred system of weights and measures for United
         States trade and commerce.

(c) Bureau of Reclamation Implementation. As a result of the Trade Act, Reclamation will, to the maximum extent
practicable, use hard conversion and soft conversion metric systems in designing its construction projects, eventually
phasing out use of the soft conversion metric system. Exceptions to this policy will only be made when such use is
impractical, produces inefficiencies or market losses, or is not economically feasible.

(d) Expected Results. Reclamation expects its support of the metric system to result in increased use of the metric
system by U.S. contractors, thereby increasing their ability to compete in the international marketplace. Increasing use
of the metric system by U.S. contractors will eliminate possible restrictions on their bidding in the international
marketplace and will eliminate any impact of economic blocks by metric countries restricting the acceptance of non-
metric products.

L.17     WBR              SOURCE EVALUATION AND SELECTION PROCEDURES                                      MAY 2005
         1452.215-80

The Government intends to evaluate proposals submitted under this solicitation and select a source for contract
award without discussions (unless the contracting officer later determines discussions to be necessary) in accordance
with the following provision: FAR 52.215-1 Instructions to Offerors -- Competitive Acquisition (JAN 2004). Source
selection shall be in accordance with procedures contained in FAR Part 15, Department of the Interior Acquisition
Regulation (DIAR) Part 1415 (48 CFR 1415) and Bureau of Reclamation Acquisition Regulation WBR Part 1415.
These procedures are summarized as follows:

 (a) Technical evaluation. Technical proposals are being requested in order to obtain information to be used in the
evaluation process. A Technical Proposal Evaluation Committee has been established to objectively evaluate technical
proposals in accordance with the Evaluation Factors for Award -- Bureau of Reclamation provision in Part IV, Section
M of this solicitation. Technical proposals shall be submitted in accordance with the Technical Proposal Instructions --
Bureau of Reclamation provision in Part IV, Section L of this solicitation.

(b) Past Performance Evaluation. In addition to any other past performance information required under the solicitation,
the Contracting Officer (C0) shall use past performance information available from the Past Performance Information
Retrieval System (PPIRS.GOV) in the source selection process on offerors competing for awards in excess of $100,000,
unless the CO has documented an exception from past performance consideration in accordance with FAR
15.304(c)(2)(iv).

(c) Cost or price evaluation. An objective cost or price evaluation of contract pricing proposals will be made in
accordance with the Evaluation Factors for Award provision in Part IV, Section M of this solicitation. Pricing proposals
shall be submitted in accordance with the Contract Pricing Proposal Instructions -- Bureau of Reclamation provision in
Part IV, Section L of this solicitation. Pursuant to FAR 15.404-1 , cost or price evaluation will be used to determine
cost/price reasonableness and the offeror's understanding of, and ability to perform, the prospective contract.

(d) Clarifications. Clarifications are limited exchanges, between the Government and offerors that may occur when
award without discussions is contemplated. If award will be made without conducting discussions, offerors may be
given the opportunity to clarify certain aspects of proposals (e.g., the relevance of an offeror's past performance
information and adverse past performance information to which the offeror has not previously had an opportunity to
respond) or to resolve minor or clerical errors.

(e) Communications. Communications are exchanges, between the Government and offerors, after receipt of proposals,
leading to establishment of the competitive range. Communications may be conducted to enhance Government
understanding of proposals, allow reasonable interpretation of the proposal, or facilitate the Government's evaluation
process. Such communications may not be used to cure proposal deficiencies or material omissions, materially alter the
technical or cost elements of the proposal, and/or otherwise revise the proposal. Communications are for the purpose of
addressing issues that must be explored to determine whether a proposal should be placed in the competitive range.
They shall not provide an opportunity for the offeror to revise its proposal, but may address ambiguities in the proposal
or other concerns and information relating to past performance.

(f) Competitive range. If discussions are to be conducted, the contracting officer shall establish the competitive range
based on the ratings of each proposal against all evaluation criteria. The competitive range shall comprise all the most
highly rated proposals, unless the range is further reduced for purposes of efficiency. The contracting officer may
determine that the number of most highly rated proposals that might otherwise be included in the competitive range
exceeds the number at which an efficient competition can be conducted. The contracting officer may then limit the
number of proposals in the range to the greatest number that will permit an efficient competition among the most highly
rated proposals. If, after discussions have begun (see paragraph (g) below), an offeror originally in the competitive
range is no longer considered to be among the most highly rated offerors being considered for award, that offeror may

                                                          L-12
Estes Powerplant Asbestos Abatement                                                   Solicitation No. R11PS60022

be eliminated from the range whether or not all material aspects of the proposal have been discussed, or whether or not
the offeror has been afforded an opportunity to submit a proposal revision.

(g) Preaward debriefing of offerors. Offerors excluded from the competitive range or otherwise excluded from further
consideration prior to the final source selection decision may request a debriefing before award. The process for
requesting and conducting preaward debriefings may be found at FAR 15.505.

(h) Discussions. Discussions are exchanges between the Government and offerors, after establishment of the
competitive range that are undertaken with the intent of allowing the offeror to revise its proposal. These discussions
may include bargaining, including persuasion, alteration of assumptions and positions, give-and-take, and may apply to
price, schedule, technical requirements, type of contract, or other terms of a proposed contract. Discussions are tailored
to each offeror's proposal, and shall be conducted by the contracting officer with each offeror within the competitive
range. The primary objective of discussions is to maximize the Government's ability to obtain best value, based on the
requirement and the evaluation factors set forth in the solicitation.

(i) Proposal revisions. The contracting officer may request or allow proposal revisions to clarify and document
understandings reached during negotiations. At the conclusion of discussions, each offeror in the competitive range
shall be given an opportunity to submit a final proposal revision. The contracting officer is required to establish a
common cut-off date only for receipt of final proposal revisions. Requests for final proposal revisions shall advise
offerors that the final proposal revisions shall be in writing and that the Government intends to make award without
obtaining further revisions.

(j) Preaward survey. A Government survey activity may contact an offeror, or visit its facility, to obtain information for
determining its financial resources and/or its technical capabilities to perform the work when available information is
not sufficient for the Contracting Officer to make a determination regarding contractor responsibility as required by
FAR Subpart 9.1. Current financial statements and other information required to make this determination shall be made
available to the survey activity. Information provided shall be protected from release or disclosure outside the
Government, except as provided in FAR Subpart 24.2, Freedom of Information Act.

(k) Organizational conflicts of interest. Award will not be made to an apparent successful offeror when an
organizational conflict of interest is determined to exist and cannot be avoided or mitigated, unless the Contracting
Officer determines that award is in the best interest of the United States and a waiver is obtained pursuant to DIAR
1409.503 (48 CFR 1409.503).

(l) Source selection decision. The source selection authority's (SSA) decision shall be based on a comparative
assessment of proposals against all source selection criteria in the solicitation. While the SSA may use reports and
criteria prepared by others, the source selection decision shall represent the SSA's independent judgment. The source
selection decision shall be documented, and the documentation shall include the rationale for any business judgments
and tradeoffs made or relied on by the SSA, including benefits associated with additional costs. Although the rationale
for the selection decision must be documented, that documentation need not quantify the tradeoffs that led to the
decision.

(m) Postaward notice. After contract award, unsuccessful offerors will be provided with written notice regarding
contract award (including the information listed in FAR 15.503(b)) by the Contracting Officer. Offerors receiving prior
notice of exclusion from the competitive range under paragraph (f) of this provision will not receive this notice.

(n) Postaward debriefing of offerors. An offeror shall be debriefed and furnished the basis for the source selection
decision and contract award if its written request is received by the contracting officer within three days after the offeror
receives notice of contract award. The process for requesting and conducting postaward debriefings may be found at
FAR 15.506.

SECTION M -- EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD

M.1        EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD - QUALITY PREDOMINANCE                                        MAY 2005

(a) Award will be made to the responsible offeror submitting a proposal which conforms to the solicitation and is most
advantageous to the Government considering the factors and any significant subfactors listed in this provision.

(b) In the evaluation of proposals, all evaluation factors other than cost or price (listed in this provision), when
combined, are considered to be significantly more important than cost or price. The relative importance to be placed on
the factors in relation to each other is contained in paragraph (e) of this provision. However, the degree of importance of
cost or price may increase with the degree of non-cost or non-price equality between the proposals. If a proposal is
determined by the Contracting Officer to be "technically unacceptable" as a result of evaluating all factors other than
cost or price, the proposal may be rejected from further consideration. The Contracting Officer reserves the right to
make award to other than the technically-acceptable offeror with the lowest cost/price proposal if it is determined that
the technical benefits of another offeror's proposal justify its higher cost/price. The Contracting Officer also reserves the
right to make award to a lower-cost/price, lower-scored offeror if it is determined that the cost/price premium involved
in awarding to a higher-rated, higher-cost/price offeror is not justified.
(c) Pursuant to FAR 15.305, a cost or price evaluation may be performed to determine the reasonableness of costs or
prices proposed and the offeror's understanding of, and ability to perform, the prospective contract.
