LPA Construction chapter -2 paragraphs on -Materials Quality Control -Materials Finalization -andAppendix J -LPA materials acceptance processes should match ODOTs BUT their issues -more manual work (No CMS/SM) -Unfamiliar -No planning
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE Planning issues – before they sell the job – Who will do testing for asphalt and concrete – Who will be testing/inspecting Bridge Paint – Who will do fabrication inspection for steel or prestressed – I have As Per Plan or Specials how are they equal or better than ODOT specs? – How will I control – track materials to Bid items Project Bill of Materials – Checklist - NEW
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE Understand Non-conformance Policy for Materials – Specification 106.07 – Proposal Note 8 PN 008 - 01/15/2010 - SPECIFICATION AND SUPPLEMENTAL SPECIFICATIONS, POLICIES AND SPECIAL PROVISIONS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE AS IF REWRITTEN HEREIN Policy 27-009 (P) Acceptance of Non-specification Material on Construction Projects Standard Procedures:510-009 (SP) Acceptance of Nonspecification Material on Construction Projects
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE After Contract – Develop the Project Bill of Material – Require the Contractor supplier list? (example) Make sure the Contractor also provides a list of materials to be used by all of the subcontractors, too. Are the suppliers correct – Documenting materials Use C&MS Section 700 for documentation guidance Temporary materials are to be documented in this manner as well.
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE Did they get the Contractor list of materials to you at the preconstruction meeting per C&MS 108.02 Make sure the Contractor also provides a list of materials to be used by all of the subcontractors, too. Documentation problems (No project Bill of Material) – Not having a system to track quantity of materials accepted and needed Notifying the CPE to require TE-24 and QPL documentation
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE Typical Materials Problems – Asphalt No verification testing No comparison of test results (producer to owner to JMF) Delivery tickets with incorrect or no JMF – Concrete Use of correct aggregate in concrete pavement Delivery tickets with incorrect or no JMF – No tracking of approved materials to construction item – Payment without materials approval
MATERIALS ACCEPTANCE If final Records do not have materials documentation FHWA funding cannot be used for payment
