2Final Estimates Issues 1. Changes, and what’s new2. Hands on Problems3. General Discussion
3Streamline Contracts Florida Department of Transportation Starting July, 2010 lettingUpdateGood Morning!I would like to welcome everyone.Today we are going to take a look at this new process that began in July 2010 Letting, called Streamline Contracts.
4Streamline Contracts Goal of Streamline Contracts Specifications Final Estimates ProcessFinal AcceptanceDFEO Responsibilities - CloseoutManual Write UpsWe are going to look at these topics.
5Streamline Contracts Goal of Streamline Contracts Simplify Administration by selecting minor projects(All jobs under $2,000,000 with less than 2,000 tons asphalt)No change to plansNo reduction in InspectionThe Goal is to simplify administration by selecting minor projects.For a project to qualify for a Streamline Contract, it must be under 2 million dollars and less than 2000 Tons of Asphalt.A report about 3 years ago showed that between 50% and 60% of jobs let, were under 2 million dollars.There will be no change to the Plans, for this type of Contract.Also, there will be no reduction in inspection requirements.
6Streamline Contracts Specifications Projects will be let as either LS or PQHow do you know you have a Stream Line Contract?SCOPE OF WORK - INTENT AND SCOPESP SLLSSP SLPQAll projects let under the Streamline process will either be Lump Sum or Plan Quantity.Let’s take a look at what changed in the Specifications, beginning with the Scope.This is where you can tell if a project is a Streamline Contract or not!
7Streamline Contracts Specifications …continued MEASUREMENT AND PAYMENT SP SLLSSP SLPQNow for Section 9 of the Specifications;Measurements and Payments
8Streamline Contracts` Specifications ….continuedPay adjustments; VERY LIMITEDLump Sum – overbuild and foundations1. Prices provided in Contract - Tables 9-2 and 9-32. Adjustments could be < or > the Contract amount; up to 105% of the original Contract amount.Examples provided in the Prep & Doc ManualOn Streamline LS Contracts, the only two items that are subject to receive an adjustment are OVERBUILD and FOUNDATIONS.The prices are provided in Your Contract under - Tables 9-2 and 9-3For Overbuild, the Adjustments could be Less than or Greater than the Contract amount; and payment can go up to 105% of the original Contract amount.WHAT DOES THIS TELL US?THE DESIGNER MUST PROVIDE THE ORIGINAL QUANTITY IN THE PLANSNote 1: Examples are provided in the Prep & Doc Manual and we will look at this letter in the presentation shortly.Note 2: This adjustment has been changed and simplified to follow the Streamline Concept.Note 3: This is the only option the Contractor has on these types of projects, based on the contract.
9Streamline Contracts` Specifications ….continuedPay adjustments; VERY LIMITEDLump Sum – overbuild and foundations Continued….3. Failed Material: Remove/replace or leave in at no pay (FDOT discretion)For failures other than items listed in Section 9-2 on Lump Sum Projects; use the unit price as determined by using the six month State Wide Pay Item Averages.The dates will be the six months prior to the Letting Date.Construction Memo to be added to contracts starting 7/2010This will eliminate the need, in most cases, to process a SA/WOCopy DCE Memo“The dates will be the six months prior to the Letting Date.”The Estimates Office now provides the current six months along with the previous six months period. This will make it much easier when these dates are needed to be utilized on your project. This should be done by a drop down menu.
10Streamline Contracts Specifications …..continued Pay adjustments; VERY LIMITED….continuedPlan Quantity –Each item on this contract will be Plan QuantityNo Fuel and Bit, no CPF, no Spread Rate/ Thickness Adjustments on PQ or LS projects.“Each item on this contract will be Plan Quantity”:This means each item is required, by Design, to provide the back up documentation to support this Plan Quantity Item.One BIG change that should save a lot of time and resources on these projects, is NOT having any Fuel or Bituminous, no Composite Pay Factor, no Spread Rate, and no Thickness Adjustments. This goes for both LS and PQ.
11Streamline Contracts Specifications …. continued Changed Verification Testing Frequency120 – EXCAVATION AND EMBANKMENT125 – EXCAVATION FOR STRUCTURES160 – STABILIZATION200 – ROCK BASE346 – PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE Verification testing reduced to ½ of the standard verification testing frequencyAll the above Specification changes will also be affected by the reduced standard verification testing frequency.We mentioned earlier that there will be NO CHANGE IN INSPECTIONBut in the VERIFICATION Section, TESTING FREQUENCY HAS BEEN REDUCED BY ½ OF THE STANDARD TESTING FREQUENCY .
12Streamline Contracts Final Estimates Process Typically the F.E. process is no different from other processes on regular projects with exception to the following: 1. Plan Quantity ProjectsEach pay item is Plan QuantityThe Contractor will provide monthly & final InvoicesComp Book updated for plan errors or Engineer approved field revisions to the final pay quantity only. 2. Lump Sum ProjectsNo change (1 LS Project, no pay items)Eliminated Tables 9-1 (deficiencies), and 9-4 (Quality).This means; every item in this contract. even though this is a Line Item Type of Contract, ALL Items are Plan Quantity, and the Contractor will provide monthly invoices to show the percent of completion on each item through these invoices. The PA will have the responsibility of updating the Comp Book to show all changes (if any) made to any or all pay items on the Plan Quantity Streamline Contract(2) Table 9-1 was eliminated due to all deficiencies being corrected or left in place at No PAY. All of this is at the Engineer’s discretion. There will be NO MORE “LEFT IN PLACE AT REDUCED PAY” based on the contract.Table 9-4 was eliminated due to NO CPF ADJUSTMENTS and/or NO SMOOTHNESS ADJUSTMENTS being done on these types of Streamline Contracts.
13Streamline Contracts Final Estimates Process …… continued What about…… Asphalt Tickets? keep in file with the PA, unless needed to support any quantity changes/disputesMaterial delivery tickets? Keep in file with the PA, unless needed to support any quantity changes/disputes.Lot submittal packages? will not be neededAsphalt cover sheets? will not be neededAsphalt QC and roadway reports? Keep in file with PA, unless needed to support any quantity changes/disputesCore out reports? Keep in file with the PA.WHAT’S CHANGED AND WHAT GOES WITH THE FINAL ESTIMATES PACKAGE ON THESE STREAMLINE CONTRACTS?LET’S GO OVER THESE CHANNGES;This should help reduce the size of the Final Estimate Package.
14Streamline Contracts Final Estimates Process ……continued What about documents to support changes?Lump Sum Projects:for failing material left in place and not referenced in Section 9-2, or in Tables 9-2 and 9-3; such as fencing: use the 6 month Statewide Pay Averages (use the 6 months prior to letting)Field changes: supported by appropriate measurementsPlan Quantity Changes:Either party will need to provide justificationPlan Quantity will not be revised based solely on a particular method of construction that the Contractor selects.Changes will be handled separatelyPlan Quantity Changes:“Either party will need to provide justification”Both parties have a role here. If the Department or the Contractor contends that the Plan Quantity for any item is in error + or −, it will be the contending party’s responsibility to provide evidence of such in the form of acceptable and verifiable measurements or calculations.Also, “Plan Quantity will not be revised based solely on a particular method of construction that the Contractor selects.”Example: Say we have a 50 day Contract and we have MOT items; The Designer based Plan Quantity on a number of signs needed each day for that pay item, and half way through this Contract, the Contractor elected to work longer days and also work on Saturdays. This enabled him to finish 10 days earlier than the estimated time for this Contracts.Are we going to adjust Plan Quantity?There is no Plan Errors here, he only elected to change his particular method of operation. In this case, there will be no adjustment to the Plan Quantity Amount.Be sure to cover Section of the Contract, “Payment based on Plan Quantity” at each Pre-Construction meeting.
15Streamline Contracts Final Acceptance Project Administrator will need to do the following:1. Upon Final Acceptance, send “Reminder Notice” of Section 9-8 to the Contractor, and copy in the DFEO2. Also, with Reminder Notice Letter; PA will include Acceptance Letter3. No Offer of Final Payment to the Contractor on these types of Contracts4. Submit F. E. Package to DFEO5. Contractor needs to send Contract Documents and Final Invoice, listed in Section 9-8, directly to the DFEO.6. Final Invoice approved by Project AdministratorTHIS IS IN THE MANUAL!(2) A Special Acceptance Letter has been developed for these types of contracts.(3) Remember, on PQ Streamline Contracts, there will be NO OFFER OF FINAL PAYMENT.(5) Remember, if the Contractor submits any Contract Document to the PA after Final Acceptance, you will need to get them to the DFEM’s office ASAP.6) Remember; the PA will need to review and approve the Final Invoice for Final Payment.
16Streamline Contracts DFEO RESPONSIBILITIES Closing the Contract Review Final Estimates Package in accordance with Chapter 14 of the R & AM.Review contract documents – Section 9-8All documents & Final Invoice complete & approvedPay Final InvoiceClose project1) The DFEO will make Final Payment on All Streamline Contracts.The PA still has the responsibility of reviewing and approving the Final Invoice submitted by the Contractor.
17Other Streamline Plan Quantity Concept Issues Plan notes added by design changing specifications: This should not happen.Contingency amounts being added to Plan Quantity Items: Same as above, this should not happen.These issues need to stop, and if they happen, please report them to the appropriate person and bring it to the attention of the responsible party so that these errors do not recur.Also, let the SCO knowEstimates Bulletin:

20Other Types of Contracts Design BuildLump SumAlternativeConventional
21Types of Contracts Lump Sum Design BuildLump Sum Contracts: They are one LS amount. No pay items. No Comp Book. Final As-Built Plans are to be turned in to FE. Contractor provides invoices to PA. Pay Item Summary and Certification Sheet is filled out and signed. You may have Supplemental Agreements/Work Orders on these types of projects, Composite Pay Factor adjustments, Fuel and Bituminous Adjustments (if applicable), deficient spread rate adjustment applied if all courses stacked exceeds 5%, per Specifications, and straight edge deficiencies. Click on the website to get to the SPs. What type of documentation is needed? See Chapter 11 of the Prep & Doc Manual on the web. Monitor pay out schedule and percent of work complete.Adjustment of quantities requires documentation. Identify testing requirements/frequency for contract certification.Review Special Provisions for failures/penalties.Design Build Contracts: The Design Build CEI Firm will prepare and submit to the Project Manager a Job Guide Schedule (JGS) using the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), 15 working days prior to commencement of Construction. Update the Job Guide Schedule in LIMS and submit it to the PM prior to each monthly progress estimate. The Department may not authorize payment of any progress estimate not accompanied by an up-to-date Job Guide Schedule. Maintain the Job Guide Schedule in LIMS throughout the project including the quantity placed since the previous submittal, and any additional materials placed. Do not commence work activities that require testing until the Job Guide Schedule has been reviewed and accepted by the PM. At final acceptance, submit a Final Job Guide Schedule that includes all materials used on the project in the same format as the monthly reports.The PM shall review and approve the pay out schedule (schedule of values) to avoid the “front loading” of payments and confirm that unit prices are reasonable for the work performed. The Contractor will prepare and certify a monthly progress Invoice no later than twelve o’clock noon Monday, after the estimate cut-off or as directed by the PM in accordance with Section 9 in the Special Provision for each project in the contract
23Lump Sum/Design Build Contracts This is what is needed to be turned in for LS and Design Build Projects. Remember there is no comp book, only the Computation Pay item Summary & certification Sheet. Remember there is only one LS payment. As seen on this screen.

30Pay Items Pay Items are divided into three Methods of Measurements Final MeasurePlan QuantityLump SumPay Items are Final Measure Pay Items, Plan Quantity Pay Items or Lump Sum Pay Items.
31Final Measured Pay items Final measured items require field measurement and site source documentation.A final measured Pay Item could be:Length (in Linear Feet)Area (length X Width) in Square feet or Square YardsVolume (Length X Width X Depth) in Cubic feet or Cubic YardsPer each ItemPer Day Item, etc.Per Specifications ; “ The Engineers will use the method or combination of methods of measurements that reflect, with reasonable accuracy, the actual surface of the finished work as the Engineer determines.”
32Final Measure Pay Items Comp Book Page/Matrix Estimated QuantitiesComp Book Page/MatrixMeasurements (Field Books, other site source records) for back up calculationsApproved Field Changes/Revisions are Final MeasuredWhere to find a final measured pay item?A Final Measure Pay Item is an estimated designer quantity. The final quantity may differ from original designer estimated quantity. The Final quantities are final measured in the field and documented on a site source record such as, a form, a field book , plan matrix, etc.Where do I go to find a final measured Item?The Basis of EstimatesThe Standard SpecificationsShow students how to go on the internet and find a final measure pay item (Go to the BOE first, then look at the Standard Specifications. Go through “Method of Measurement” and “Basis of Payment”Have the students look at the set of plans available in front of them. Find a final measure pay item.Examples of final measured pay items: –1 mailboxes: paid as (EA); Inlets, Curb, Type P-5, < 10’ : paid as (EA)Example: Designer shows 5 new mailboxes (Pay item 110 – 7-1) to be provided on this project.However, another home was built in that neighborhood/ business, and an extra mailbox was needed. This could happen, because it may take a year from the process of design, then bidding/letting, and start of construction, and you may have an alteration in the original quantity. Therefore the final quantity will be 6 mailboxes. You will show this in a field book. Or look at Plans page No. 10. “Summary of Mailboxes”. Add 2 mailboxes at station for the Final quantity and show project total as 6.
33Final Measured Pay Items Site Source RecordsForms used by field personnel to final measured quantities and/or field changesField BooksPlan MatrixesFinal As Built PlansForms used by In-house and CCEIForms/Worksheets used by ContractorForms are considered Site Source Records. They are FDOT forms used by the Construction Filed personnel to document quantities in the field. Comp Books, Field Books, Plan Matrixes and Final As Built Plans are also considered site source recordsThe Site Source Record forms are: Go to the Internet to show and discuss each formForm Off Duty Police Officer (not used any longer)Form Daily Log Sheet-Maintenance of Traffic (Not used any longer)Form Daily Log Sheet – Stripping (Not used any longer)Form Final MeasurementsForm Daily Report of Truck Measured MaterialForm A Truck measured Sketch (Regular Bed)Form B Truck Measured Sketch (Irregular Shape Bed)Form Daily Log Sheet Grassing Item (not used any Longer)Form Daily Log Sheet – Miscellaneous Tabulation FormForm Lane RentalForm Daily Record of Extra WorkForm Extra Work SummaryForm Field Book LogForm Final Measurements “Miscellaneous”Form Asphalt Concrete Pay Item Reduction SheetSite Source Records that are the Contractor’s responsibility, are:Form Contractor’s Certification of Quantities – MOT Signs, etc. all pay items + temporary StripingForm A Same as above – Continuation SheetForm MOT-Painted Pavement Markings-Daily WorksheetForm MOT-Painted Pavement Markings-Contractor’s Certification of QuantitiesForm Initial Retroreflectivity Reading Certification (Worksheet)Form Bituminous Material Certification – Conventional ProjectsLS/DB Bituminous Worksheet - For Lump Sum and Design Build Projects (On the Construction Website)LS/DB Fuel Worksheet For Lump Sum & Design Build Projects
34Final Measurement FORM 700-050-53 Latitude & Departure What does it mean?Form usedDocumenting measurements on the form, how critical?Latitude and Departure is a method of measurement utilizing offset points that are referenced to a surveyed baseline or centerline of construction to calculate areas. If the area is on a curve, then the baseline follows the curve.
35Final Measurement Latitude & Departure Form 700-050-53 ALL Latitude and Departure measurements are REQUIRED to be recorded on the Department’s “Final Measurements Site Source Record” (form # ) or in a Bound Field Book. Inspectors are required to put their name on this form before turning it in to the PA.It is critical that one knows how to document their measurements on the latitude & Departure form.
36Final Measurement Latitude & Departure This method averages the widths of each station multiplied by the length between stations to calculate the area.Calculations can be performed manually or by the Department’s FDOT Quantities Program (formally known as the Engmenu Final Measurements Program).
37Daily Report of Truck Measured Material Form 700-050-54 You will enter the necessary information on the top of the form pertaining to a contract, and the Contractor’s name or subcontractor.See “NOTE” located above the “LOADS” section of the form.NOTE: Click the next consecutive number for every truck as each load is received and note the time of dump under load number (example 3:30 pm). If loads are not used for a truck, keep the remaining load counts (boxes) empty.This form is automated, once a box is checked and a time is entered, it will be shown as the total to the side of that row. When load number 2 is received and dumped, and you check the box and time of entry, a new total will be shown, and so on. The total for that day will also be shown at the bottom of the form.

39Truck Measured Sketch Form 700-050-54B (Irregular Bed) Truck measured Sketch (Irregular Bed)Form BTruck Measured Sketch Form B (Irregular Bed)
40EXAMPLE-Truck Measured Sketch (Irregular Bed) EXAMPLE: The truck certification is 27.5 CY. Contractor turns in a certified truck invoice. The Contractor’s truck was an irregular bed. The technician, randomly, chose to measure this truck and came up with a total volume of 25.5 CYs. As you can see, the calculated quantity does not equal the certified quantity. This new measurement will also be verified, just to make sure. The Technician’s new measurement will then be used. The Contractor will have to be informed about this. A recertification will be required for this truck number.Upon entering the required quantity in the form and tabbing out of the area, and since you do not have sideboards, the new total volume is automatically calculated at the bottom of the page using the quantities from section (2) + (3) to come up with 25.5 CY. You must click the “NO” category under section (4) first for the program to do the calculation correctly when using this form.

55Lane Rental Form # 700-050-57 Final Measurements
56Lane Rental Form #What is Lane Rental ?A lane rental technique is an Alternative Contract like the A + B Bidding (Time-plus-Money). It’s a technique where a contractor will bid on a lane rental project and will determine the number of days that a lane will be closed during work and use this determination in the bid process. The total lane rental bid will be added to the standard bid to decide the award. Contractors using more lane rental days than which they bid will be charged lane rental fees. The lane rental concept requires a fee that will be established during design and placed in the contract to be assessed for each day or half-day of lane closure(s) in "excess” of the number of total lane rental days originally bid by the Contractor (see your contract for the applicable days). Once the lane rental days exceeds the total number of lane rental days bid, the predetermined lane rental fee will be multiplied by the excessive time and the result will be deducted from the monthly estimate’s payment. The Contractor shall only be charged lane rental days on chargeable workdays.Lane RentalIt is designed to shorten the amount of time in which a contractor is actually closing lanes of traffic
57DAILY RECORD OF EXTRA WORK EXTRA WORK – FORM NO If the PA directs extra work, you may be asked to track the extra work using formDAILY RECORD OF EXTRA WORKForm
58EXTRA WORK SUMMARY Form 700-050-59 EXTRA WORK SUMMARY– FORM NO The PA is required to fill out this form with all the information gathered from all the daily records of extra work (forms ) and summarized on form This form will be signed by the PA.EXTRA WORK SUMMARYForm
59Other Final Measure Issues Notice of Intent (NOI)NOI: When the Contractor files a notice of Intent, he is filing a claim against the Department.For each day you are under NOI, you must track everything very carefully. You could use form (Daily record of Extra Work) for each day.You must keep good records, communicate regularly with your PA and Lead Inspector and keep informed of any new issues. Keep good dailies in Site Manager. This may cost the Department money, and that is why we emphasize on good record keeping.For Example: The Contractor did not have a milling machine on the project during this particular claim, but yet the contractor is charging the Department for one on the claim. If we track properly we can deny that charge. It is very important for Final Estimates so that double dipping is eliminated by the contractor (where they will get paid twice for the milling machine – once on this project and probably once on another project).
60Final Measurement Final Measurement “Miscellaneous”, Form # 700-050-61 ■ Record data■ Simulate a Field Book Page■ Document Quantities■ Savings to the DepartmentThis form is designed to record data and to simulate a field book page. Therefore, Area, Linear, Volumetric, Survey Notes, and Per Each measurements could be documented on this form. This form could also be used to document quantities using the Latitude and Departure method. Field Books are costly. However, when a project necessitates a full survey, such as Bench levels, Original and/or Final Cross Sections, and Subsoil Cross Sections, it is recommended to use the Field Book. By creating this form, A Technician could use one, two or as many pages as needed, with a potential savings to the Department.
61Final Measurement “Miscellaneous” Form # 700-050-61 This form is to be used as a Site Source Record to record data and to simulate a field book page. Therefore, Area, Linear, Volumetric, Survey notes, and Per Each measurements could be documented on this form. This form could also be used to document quantities using the Latitude and Departure method . When this form is utilized for survey notes the criteria specified in (chapter 6 of the Prep & Doc manual) need to be met. For permanent records use a Standard Bound Field Book. When a project necessitates a full survey, such as Bench Levels, Original and/or Final Cross Sections, and Subsoil Cross Sections, it is recommended to use a Field Book. By creating this form, A Technician could use one, two or as many pages as needed for individual pay items. Individual sheet(s) should be contained in a folder which should be clearly identified and included with the final Estimate Package.

See next slide
88Conventional projects Certification Sheet BituminousConventional projectsCertification SheetThis is the Certification sheet that the Contractor will turn in to the Project Administrator , signed, once all the necessary information has been filled out on the Set-Up Sheet. This form will automatically produce the total monthly payment for bituminous and polymer material used on the project.These forms are automated and password protected, however we are still required to spot check the gallons and the indexes, and the dollar amount submitted to the PA.To check for gallons:Multiply the total Tons of Asphalt X 2.331X 6.25 = Gallons (This is for AC and Polymer)For Permeable Base( multiply Total Tons X X 3) = Gallons Permeable Base.Or you could go on the internet sight and plug in the total tons that the contractor submitted, plus enter the correct indexes for the months in question and the program will do the calculations for you. This way you could check to see if the Contractor manipulated the system. Remember that the Contractor certifies these quantities, and if a contractor is trying to cheat or falsify a document, that contractor will be put on a no bid list.

97Other Asphalt Issues Make sure the correct forms are being used Get with your Resident Asphalt SpecialistMake sure forms are completelyfiled outAsphalt Forms have recently been ever changing documents. Before your project begins, be sure to download the newest forms and directions.Also check with your Resident Asphalt Specialist to make sure the forms you are about to use are the correct ones.The forms must be completely filled out by the Plant and Roadway Technicians (QC and verification).Then checked by the Project Administrator or the designee - probably the contract support specialist.
98The Lot Submittal Package to the Final Estimates Offices should consist of the following: The Computer Invoice for Asphalt ConcreteThe Asphalt Plant – Pay factor WorksheetThe Asphalt Roadway – Verification ReportThe Asphalt Roadway – Daily Report of Quality Control.The Verification Technician is responsible for compiling all the components that make the Lot Submittal Package and submitting it in a timely manner.It should be submitted to the Project Administrator within 2 working days after a LOT is complete.
99Cover Sheet1. The Asphalt Tickets are to be Collected by the Contractor’s Quality Control Technician and a Cover Sheet Filled Out for the Day’s Production.It lists project ID, type of material, date, design mix number, total number of tickets, total number of tons, how many tons were used on each pay item, how much waste there was and who the inspector was.
100Asphalt Plant Lot verification & Pay Factor for SP Mixes 2. This is an example of a composite pay factor worksheet. The contractors test results for each sublot are input into the spreadsheet. These results are for AC content, gradation, air voids and density.The verification technician tests one predetermined sublot, if verified, the composite pay factor is the % pay for the entire verified lot. If the sublot doesn’t verify, the verification technician tests the remaining sublots. If they verify, the whole lot is considered verified. If one more sublot does not verify, the whole lot goes to resolution.If CPF is verified by the VT, it needs to be paid on the next Progress Estimate.

104Pay Items Plan Quantity Pay Item Comp Book Page/Matrix Designer Quantities with back upComp Book Page/MatrixOnly Plan Errors and /or Field Revision/changes are required to be Final Measured (in Field Books, other site source records) for back up calculationsPlan Errors > 5% or > $ 5,000Where to find a Plan Quantity Item?Plan quantity (PQ) pay items are designer quantities with backup documentation. PQ pay items are not required to be field measured. If a plan error is found on a project; only the change will need to be documented on a site source record. Also, an approved field revision/change by the Engineer will also need to be documented on a site source record.Where to find a plan quantity pay item?Go to the BOEHave the students open their Standard Specifications and look for the following pay items:Have the student look in front of them at their plans and check out: Pay item # ; Pipe Culvert, Optional Material, Round 0-24”S/CD - measured in (LF).Let us check out Pay item # Performance Turf; measured in (SY)Check the same pay items in the Standard Specifications under Method of Measurements and Basis of Payment.Plan Quantity can change if there is a plan error quantity that exceeds 5% or $ 5,000 from the original PQ.
105Method of Measurement Plan Quantity Pay Items The Plan Quantity Concept is if the item is built per plan, you pay plan quantity.Should one of the following arise:Plan ErrorAuthorized Field Changea little more work will be necessary.Remember, Plan Quantities are Designer supported quantitiesPlan quantities are evaluated on original contract quantities that existed at the time of bid.Revised plan sheets and revised computation book sheet quantities after the bid date are not to be used for evaluating plan quantity – THE ORIGINAL QUANTITIES are to be used.On multiple job contracts, plan quantity will be evaluated on the entire quantity for like pay items with the same unit price.Some folks use the computation book sheet for their Plan Quantity Analysis, or you could compute the analysis on a separate sheet of paper and attach it to the comp book page pertaining to that plan quantity item. Remember to make reference of where the calculations are on the comp book sheet.
106Plan Quantity Pay Items Technician’s Responsibility YOU ONLY MEASURE CHANGESNOTE: Only changes in plan Quantity need to be measured. “PLAN QUANTITY” means you are not supposed to go out and measure.
107Plan Quantity Pay Items Technician’s Responsibility ● Only Measure and Document Field Revisions and/or Plan Errors● Comp Book Sheets - Only show changes● Plan Matrixes - Only show changes
108Plan Quantity Pay Items Plan Error:a difference between the original plan quantity and final quantity of more than 5% - or -a change in quantity which causes a change in the amount payable of more than $5,000A plan error violates the Plan Quantity Concept if either (a) or (b) are met. Then you would pay plan quantity +/- error.See specification Error in Plan Quantity.
109Plan Quantity Pay Items Authorized Field Change:○ Any authorized change made to the original plan quantity.○ All changes, increases or decreases, apply and require site source documentation to support the change.Site source documentation should be made using the standard documenting methods for the effected item.For example, additional base should be documented on latitude and departure sheets or in field books.See specification Payment Based on Plan Quantity.

Design error; in the field it measured 69 Ft from one Mitered End to the other instead of 73 FT. a difference of 4 Ft less. There were no other Plan Errors.And we have one field revision approved by the Engineer = 10 LF at Sta (instead of constructing 67 LF of 24" pipe Cross Drain Pipe; the Engineer approved to extend the pipe 10 more LF for better flow to 77 LF.) (just as an example).

116Pay Items Lump Sum Pay Items I LS Quantity Designer Quantities with back upComp Book Page/MatrixApproved Field Changes/Revisions are required to be Final Measured (in Field Books, other site source records) for back up calculationsWhere to find a LS item?If the LS quantity changes in the field from the original LS quantity. The final quantity could be more than 1 LS, for example LS, and it could be less than 1 LS; for example, LS.This could happen if there are secondary units in the plans or the comp book, and if the quantity changes, than we could show the new change in a field book and show the calculations with the final quantity being entered on the comp book page.Where to find a LS Quantity?Look at the BOE, and The Standard Specifications. Looking at the Plans fins a LS Pay item.Example of a LS Pay Item: Mobilization : pay item NoMaintenance of Traffic, pay Item No. 102 – 1Clearing & Grubbing, Pay Item No
117Lump Sum Pay Items■ As long as Lump Sum items are not changed, the quantity will be 1 Lump Sum.■ No further documentation will be necessary.■ However, a Lump Sum item can be changed.Specification Authorized changes in work can be made to a Lump Sum item when the plans show an estimated quantity.The compensation will be adjusted proportionately based on the increase or decrease of the estimated quantity.When the plans do not show an estimated quantity a new unit price will be established through a supplemental agreement as provided in section for any Increase, Decrease or Alteration in the work.When adjusting a Lump Sum quantity, the work should be similar to that in the original plans. If not, you may need a Supplemental Agreement to provide compensation.
118Lump Sum Pay Items How can a lump sum quantity change? If secondary units are included in the plans, andAdditional/deleted work is of similar scope to original contract, andAdjust Final Quantity
119Lump Sum Pay ItemsWhat do we mean by Secondary units?Where Designer shows clear and precise calculations in the plans for the Lump Sum Pay Item.Example: precise location and calculations of a certain area that needs to be cleared and grubbed.If a similar scope of work needs to be added or deleted from a Lump Sum item and the secondary units are included in the plans then the Lump Sum final pay quantity can be adjusted.However if the secondary units are not included in the plans or the work is of a differing nature a contract adjustment in the form of an SA will need to be executed, and a new unit price will be established.For example Clearing and Grubbing is a Lump Sum item, the secondary units would be in the form of a total estimated area located in the contract. If extra area is authorized to be cleared then the quantity is adjusted proportionally with the ratio between the new final area and the original estimated area. However if the clearing operation is not of similar scope (i.e. heavy forest) then the Contractor may not agree to accept this new work at the present pay item. This would require an SA.Remember that the final quantity is adjusted – not the unit price.Examples of Lump Sum Items include: Clearing & Grubbing, Special Detour, and Lump Sum Reinforcing Steel.See Specification 9-3.3
121Lump Sum Pay Items LUMPThe Project Engineer notices that the area that needs to be cleared and grubbed is actually larger than what the Plans show. Therefore the LS quantity will now be greater than 1,Another situation could arise if the area was smaller than what was in the plans, the LS quantity will then be less than 1, as seen below in the example.For example if area is less than what’s in the plans:Length is actually 120 Ft instead of 150 Ft.Therefore the new total area to be cleared and grubbed will be:(120 X 12) ÷9 = 160 SYAnd the new Lump Sum Quantity will be :160 ÷ 200 (which is the original area of secondary units in the plans) = (This is the new Lump Sum quantity)Refer to of the Standard Specifications “Lump Sum Quantities”NOTE: The criteria has to be met in order to change this item.
122Lump Sum Pay Items 1.180 Lump Sum When documenting in Comp Book: The designer Quantity will be in location “Designer Quantity with secondary Units is 1 Lump Sum.If Construction has the same quantity; then also the quantity will be 1 lump sum.If the quantity changes as the examples shown previously, then if quantity increases, you will show Lump Sum, and if it decreases you will show Lump Sum.
123Other General Responsibilities InspectionKick-Off MeetingsContractPlans; As-BuiltComp BooksGuide ListInspection: Technicians are the eyes and ears for the Department. A Technician’s job is important and critical for the succession of a project’s outcome.Kickoff Meetings: These meetings are very important. Make sure you pay attention to everything that is discussed at this meeting. If there is something that you do not understand, this is the time to ask your question.Contract: READ YOUR CONTRACT, and be familiar with the pay items on your project. Example: Variable Message Sign; pay the contractor 2 weeks prior to start of project.Plans: Study your plans. Check Plan notes related to pay item measurements and payments. For yourAs-Built Plans: update as soon as something changes in the field, either on plan matrix or summary sheet, etc. Make notes as to where extra calculations are found (refer to a Field book and page no.); use black ink/black pencil.On Directional Bore - pay items 555; Jack and Bore – pay item 556; and Vibratory Plowing - pay item 557; pay 70% when work is complete, 30% when you receive As-Built plans from the contractor.On Signals (Pay Items 611….); pay 85% when work is complete, and 15% when you receive the As-Built Plans from the contractor.Any Plan revisions; the original shall have VOID written on it and new sheet inserted after old except for Key Sheet, it (the revised sheet) stays on top.Comp Books: check out the pay items, back up information, etc. Make sure that if a pay item is complete, that all supporting documentation is shown, referred to or available for review for that pay item.Guide List: This will guide you through a project regarding measurements, payments, what to look for, etc.
124Other General Responsibilities Cut-off Dates/Contractor Certification of QuantitiesGood Record Keeping SkillsFinal Measure/Plan QuantityPay to Correct RoundingCut-Off Dates: Go to the Internet and the Construction Website and show where the Cut –Off dates are located.All inspectors should know where they are located and needed for each month. Upcoming write up in the Prep & Doc Manual, Chapter 6, Section regarding the Certification of Quantities turned in by the Contractor- this needs to represent the amount of material placed and accepted from cut-off date to cut-off date.Good Record Keeping Skills: are very important and necessary. As construction projects are underway, a great many measurements and computations are made and many documents are prepared to record work accomplishments and pay quantities. Planning for the final estimate should start with the beginning of a project -- or before. Now is when that planning pays off. If records have been prepared and maintained in an orderly manner throughout the project, it will be much easier to compile the information in a final estimate package and submit it to the District Office. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that someone in each district is going to review the estimate and verify the quantities before final payment is made to the contractor. And unless the checker can readily locate the backup data and verify your calculations, the whole process will be slowed down. So -- keep it neat and orderly, and make sure all the needed information is included. Support you Lead Inspector with the monthly estimate. Don’t make him /her come ask you for quantities. Be proactive.Final Measure/Plan Quantity: If you are not sure if a pay item is final measured or plan quantity, check out the contract, specifications, and/or the BOE manual. Keep up with the final measured quantities using the site source records (Field Books, Forms, Plan Matrixes). On Plan Quantity, only measure field changes and plan errors and document on appropriate site source records. Many times these records will be referred to by persons with little. If any, field experience or engineering background (such as lawyers during claims). It is important therefore, when preparing records of this type to assume that all persons who will use your notes have no familiarity at all with the work you are recording. They may be required as evidence in any arbitration or lawsuit.Pay to the Correct Rounding: The criteria for the degree of accuracy are described in the BOE Manual. You will be able to see the listing of all pay items and the specified degree of accuracy (whole number, 0.1 unit, 0.01 unit, or unit for each.) Basic rules for rounding decimal numbers during manual calculations are described in the Construction Math Self Study Course. When using calculators or computers, you should use the full decimal capabilities of the machine (don’t round off intermediate results on multiple entry calculation).
125Other General Responsibilities Overruns/UnderrunsFinal Estimates PackageAsphaltTime FileOverruns and underruns: are very important. Again, keeping good records and documentation as to why an O/U run occurred on your project is vital information. Only differences +/- $ 10,000 have to be documented. These Os and Us are generated in Site Manager AD HOC. However, all pay items will be shown on that report, so it must be exported to an excel spread sheet and edited.Final Estimates Package: If a pay item is completed, make sure all documentation supporting any changes are completed and turned in to the project Administrator, or a Contract Support Specialist for verification. Make sure all Certifications/worksheets are turned in monthly to the PA.
