All Bidders should be aware that the date, time, and location for Proposal Submittal and Opening may be modified by Addendum.
All Contractors are hereby notified that they must have proper licenses under the state law for their trades. General Contractors are notified that applicable statues of North Carolina will be observed in receiving and awarding general contracts.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has agreed to reimburse the Owner for portions of the project costs. The Owner will not accept or consider proposals from any contractor whose name, at the time of opening of bids or award, appears on the current list of ineligible contractors published by the Comptroller General of the United States under Section 5.6 (b) of the Regulations of the Secretary of Labor (29) CFR nor a proposal from any firm, corporation, partnership, or proprietorship in which an ineligible contractor who, at the time of the opening of bids or the award, is removed from the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s list of prequalified contractors.
Contractors desiring to perform work on NCDOT projects shall pre-qualify with the Department. Upon pre-qualification, Contractors will be placed on the Department’s Prequalified Bidders List and/or the Approved Subcontractors List, depending on the application submitted. The requirements for pre-qualification are listed in section 102-2 of the Standard Specifications for Roads and Structures, July, 2006. For more information please refer to the NCDOT website at https://connect.ncdot.gov/business/Prequal/Pages/default.aspx.
Bidders must be prequalified by the NCDOT prior to submitting a bid. Subcontractors performing work on this project must be prequalified prior to performing any work on this project.
Each proposal shall be accompanied by a cash deposit or a certified check drawn on a bank or trust company insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in an amount equal to not less than 5% of the proposal or a bid bond of 5% of the bid executed by a surety company licensed under the laws of North Carolina to execute such bonds. The deposits shall be made payable to the Owner and shall be retained by the Owner as liquidated damages in the event of the successful bidder fails to properly execute the contract within ten (10) days after award and to give satisfactory surety as required by law.
By submitting a bid the Contractor certifies that he has under his direct control or at his disposal the men, equipment, and materials required to execute this work as specified. Lack of such control or availability of men, equipment or materials shall constitute failure to properly execute the Contract. Performance and Labor and Material Payment Bonds will be required for 100% of the Contract price, with a surety or sureties legally authorized to do business in the State of North Carolina.
A bid may be withdrawn only as provided by the applicable statues of North Carolina. If a bid is withdrawn within 120 days of the bid opening, the Bid Guarantee shall be forfeited; provided that, if the request to withdraw is made not later than 72 hours after the opening of bids, and if the withdrawal is allowed, the Owner may return the bid guarantee.
Certain mandatory federal and state requirements apply to this solicitation and will be made part of any contract awarded.
