1 REQUEST FOR BIDS (/RFB) FOR FIRE HYDRANT AND POST INDICATOR VALVES (PIV) INSPECTION, REPAIR / REPLACEMENT CONTROL No ADDENDUM No. 1 ISSUE DATE: 08/15/2013 REVISED DEADLINE: 08/22/2013 AT 2:00 PM EST This addendum is being issued to modify some sections of the RFB as well as to answer questions submitted by the question deadline. Notes: Generally, text deleted in the RFB by this addendum is indicated as strikethrough text. Generally, text added or changed by this addendum is indicated as bold italics text. I. MODIFICATIONS: 1. CHANGE: The Bid Deadline to Thursday, August 22, 2013 at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. 2. REPLACE: The SECTION 7 Required Forms list (Page 15of 35) issued with the RFB with SECTION 7 REVISED Required Forms list (Revised Page 15 of 35) as provided with this addendum. II. ANSWERS TO SUBMITTED QUESTIONS: 1. Hydrant maintenance is not usually performed weekly. Usually its painting once a year and flushing twice a year. There are usually many weeks that go by when no work is done. Does the Contractor still have to submit weekly payroll even if no work took place? If so, does the Contractor get to invoice for the cost of certified payroll that would be $0 dollars ever week? A. No. When there is an extended period of time when no work is anticipated to be performed, a notice of such a time gap can be provided to the Business Diversity Unit so the submission of certified payrolls will be waived until work resumes. THIS ADDENDUM MUST BE ACKNOWLEDGED ON THE BID FORM IN THE RFB RFB Control # Addendum #1 Page 1 of 3
2 2. Is this contract federally funded? If not, why would Wayne County Airport Authority (Airport Authority) want to pay higher wage rates for unskilled labor when it s not necessary? A. The Airport Authority has adopted a policy that requires any construction, repairs or services contract anticipated to have a value in excess of $50, include a prevailing wage requirement for workers that perform any such work. 3. As a single owner LLC, I do not pay myself prevailing wage. Would I be exempt since I have no employees? A. Owners and other salaried staff are exempt from prevailing wage. 4. As a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) at the Airport Authority. Most contracts only allow us to invoice once a month. But yet prevailing wages requires weekly certified payroll. The cost of the certified payroll will sometimes exceed the invoice amount since these repairs to hydrants are lower cost low volume repairs. Will the contractor be able to invoice for the cost of certified payroll in these instances? A. No. Certified payroll submission is a contractual requirement. Any such costs should be incorporated into and included as part of a Bidder s bid. THIS ADDENDUM MUST BE ACKNOWLEDGED ON THE BID FORM IN THE RFB RFB Control # Addendum #1 Page 2 of 3
