INTENT AND SCOPE OF PLANS AND SPECIFICATIONS:
It is the intent of the plans and specifications that one shall supplement the other, but not necessarily duplicate one another.
Any work called for in one and omitted in the other shall be executed as if called for in both in order that the work will be fully
completed according to the complete design as determined by the BCAEP Project Team (or Project Manager) and approved by
the Contracting Officer. Should any discrepancy appear in or between the drawings and specifications, the specifications will
govern. It is to be understood that the work described in the specifications and shown on the plans shall be complete in every
detail whether every necessary item is particularly mentioned or not and BCAEP shall be held to provide all items of labor and
materials necessary for the satisfactory completion of the indicated work. Any provisions contained in the specifications or
shown on the standard drawings which are not applicable to the work pertaining to this project shall be disregarded. All testing
shall be accomplished in accordance with these specifications and only at the discretion of the BCAEP Project Team as approved
by the Contracting Officer shall any portions of the testing be waived.
A. The Contracting Officer shall check all the specifications and instructions as shown on the plans or given in the SOW and shall
notify the BCAEP Team, particularly the Project Manager, should any discrepancy of any kind be found in the plans,
specifications or conditions at the site. BCAEP will not be allowed to take advantage of any discrepancy, error or omissions. If
any discrepancy is discovered, the BCAEP Team with Contracting Officer’s approval will issue full instructions pertaining thereto
and the BCAEP shall carry out these instructions as if originally specified.
B. Reference to standard specifications (ASTM, AWWA, ANSI, ACI, API, NEC, etc.), national codes, local or state codes and laws
and ordinances shall mean the latest edition of said document in effect at the time of taking bids unless specifically stated
C. Drawings shall be followed in construction of the work and all dimensions and specifications shown on the Plans shall be
accurately maintained. Scaled measurements will not be allowed and no work shall be performed when dimensions or
specifications are not indicated until such dimensions or specifications are obtained.
