The Owner requires the Project to be completed in 120 calendar days from date of Notice to Proceed.

Note:  It is anticipated this project will be funded by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Program and the awarded bidder will be required to provide all documents required for this program as outlined in the Supplemental General Conditions for SRF Assisted Public Drinking Water and Wastewater Facilities Construction Contracts as part of their contract documents to be submitted.

Your Bid will be required to be submitted under a condition of irrevocability for a period of 60 days after submission.

The attention of bidders is called to the provisions of State Law Governing General Contractors, as set forth in Title 34, Chapter 8, Article 1, Code of Alabama of 1975, as amended; and the provisions of said law shall govern bidders insofar as it is applicable.  The above-mentioned provisions of the Code make it illegal for the Owner to consider a bid from anyone who is not properly licensed under such code provisions.  In addition, bidders must carry the municipal and utility construction classification as listed in the latest edition of the Roster of the State Licensing Board for General Contractors, Montgomery, Alabama.  The Owner therefore will not consider any bid unless the bidder produces evidence that he is so licensed.  Neither will the Owner enter into a Contract with a foreign corporation which is not qualified under State Law to do business in the State of Alabama.

The attention of nonresident bidders is called to the provisions of Alabama Law, Title 39, Chapter 3, Code of Alabama 1975, as amended, relating to preference to be given to resident contractors in Alabama over nonresident contractors in the award of contracts in the same manner and to the same extent as provided by the laws of the state of domicile of the nonresident contactor, and to the requirements that the bid documents tendered by any nonresident contractor must be accompanied by “a written opinion of an attorney-at-law licensed to practice law in such nonresident contractor’s state of domicile as to the preference, in any or none, granted by the law of that state to its own business entities whose principal places of business are in that state in the letting of any or all public contracts”.

Each Bidder, and each Subcontractor, is required to complete and submit Document 00450 – Affidavit of Immigration Compliance along with their E-Verify Program Memorandum of Under-standing at the time of the Bid.  No Contract will be awarded to any Bidder who does not submit the required Immigration Compliance documents.

Contractor will be required to provide two (2) Owner’s Protective Liability Policies.  Named Insured shall be as follows:

1. The Water Works and Sewer Board of The City of Gadsden

2. CDG, Inc.

See Section 00700 – General Conditions for full details.

The Owner reserves the right to accept or reject any or all Bids.
