INTRODUCTION

This manual establishes the format for, and provides all the standard documents
required to produce a Unit Price Contract in accordance with City of Ottawa standards.
Volume 1: Construction Specifications and Volume 2: Material Specifications and
Standard Detail Drawings should both be fully reviewed prior to the production of a Unit
Price Contract to ensure that all specifications and standards are incorporated. The
pages to be filled out by the Contract Administrator from this manual are produced using
Microsoft Word™ for Windows and are included on the accompanying Compact Disc.
The remaining documents are available on the CD in .pdf file format for your reference.

Users of this manual are advised that all documents prepared for City of Ottawa unit
price contracts must be in Word format.

This manual has been developed in accordance with applicable revisions of the Ontario
Provincial Standard Specifications up to and including Nov. 2016.

All City of Ottawa Unit Price contracts are in accordance with a modified version of the
Ontario Provincial Standard General Conditions of Contract. The six (6) sections of the
tender documents that compliment the Modified OPS General Conditions are identified
as follows:

Section Title Colour


Section A Tender White
Section B Form of Agreement Blue
Section C Modified OPS General Conditions Green
Section D Special Provisions - General Pink
Section E Standard Drawings and Standard Yellow
Specifications
Section F Special Provisions – Item Specific Yellow

Although the sections have various colours in this manual, the actual tender documents
shall only have white pages.

\Intro\Introduction.doc – March 1, 2017 i


SECTION A – OUTLINE

Section A - Tender is a standardized document produced and amended by the City of Ottawa. It
consists of:

Part I Tender Call


Part II Tender Conditions
Part III Form of Tender

This document is contained on the Compact Disc under “\Section A\Tender”. The user is
advised that clause TC-16 – Time of Completion has two (2) versions.

a) For contracts using “Working Days” to determine the Completion Date, the
corresponding clauses can be found on page A-6 of the Tender.

b) For contracts using “Substantial Performance” and “Completion” dates, the


corresponding clauses are found on page Alternate A-6 of the Tender.

Tender Closing Date

The Project Manager is advised that tenders close at 3:00 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays,
Wednesdays or Thursdays. The Project Manager shall confirm the closing day/date with Supply
Branch.

Schedule of Prices

The Project Manager shall complete the Tender Information Package sheet and the Contract Item
Listing Sheet showing all the Item Codes and the Estimated Quantities. These sheets are
available under file, “\Section A\Tender Information Package.doc” and “\Section A\ Contract
Item Listing Sheet.doc” respectively.

The above information will be used by the City Program Administrative Clerk to complete the
Tender, the Form of Agreement, the Schedule of Prices, the General Special Provisions, any
contract Specific Special Provisions and the Contract Estimate.

List of Standard Tender Items

A Master Item List of Standard Tender Items is included in this section of the manual, listing the
most commonly used items of work with their associated specifications in an established
sequence for preparation of the Schedule of Prices.

\Section A\Outline – March 02, 2015 i


Section A - Outline Standard Tender Documents for Unit Price Contracts

The master item list provides for both Plan Quantity Measurement and Actual Measurement basis
for payment for the contract items of work.

Tender items which are to be paid on a Plan Quantity Measurement basis are identified by the
letter (P) in the unit column. Thus, the list is interchangeable for tender items which are to be
paid on an Actual Measurement basis by elimination of the (P) in the Unit column.

Most tender item quantities can be designated as Plan Quantity Measurement, but some Ontario
Provincial Standard Specifications (OPSS) provide for only Actual Measurement for payment.
Item quantities that generally remain Actual Measurement are those measured by tonne, and
items whose limits cannot be clearly defined at the time of design (e.g., borrow materials,
sodding, seeding).

Therefore, if the letter (P) does not appear in the unit column of the Master List for a particular
tender item, the item can only be paid on an Actual Measurement basis in accordance with its
applicable specification and/or Special Provision.

Master Item List

The City uses an internal “Master List of Tender Items” database for the creation of the Schedule
of Prices, as well as payment certificates, etc. The master item list appears in this manual, and
this database is extensive, as it will contain variant of items (different sizes of sewer pipe for
example).

All Consultants, external agencies, designers and Project Managers are required to use the Master
Item List to produce the Contract Item Listing Sheet see file “\Section A\Contract Item Listing
Sheet.doc”.

Plan Quantity Payment (PQP)

The principle of PQP means that payment will be made according to the design quantity shown
in the Contract. The resident construction staff will verify that the work is constructed in
accordance with the Contract requirements, but the completed work will not be measured. The
purpose of PQP tender items is to eliminate field measurements during and after constructio

\Section A\Outline – March 31, 2011 ii


Section A - Outline Standard Tender Documents for Unit Price Contracts

Item Descriptions

The item descriptions given in the list are generally consistent with the descriptions quoted in the
basis of payment sections of the referenced Ontario Provincial Standard Specifications (OPSS).
These descriptions should not be modified in any way and should remain exactly the same from
contract to contract to avoid conflict with the OPSS’s and provide overall uniformity in the
City’s tendering process.

Units

Units shown are those used as the measurement for payment for the tender items which are
quoted in their respective specifications. If more than one unit is listed the one most frequently
used is listed first.

Reference to Specifications/Special Provisions

The list indicates the applicable OPSS reference numbers and special provision numbers which
may apply to the tender item.

Preparation of the Schedule of Prices

The Schedule of Prices of the Tender will be prepared by the City for each Contract. The Project
Manager simply lists on the Contract Item Listing Sheet all the pertinent Item Codes of the items
required from the Master Item List and provides the quantity of each item used in the contract.
The applicable item description, unit, OPSS and special provision clause numbers will be
displayed automatically onto the standard FT-4.2 Schedule of Prices of the tender form.

Preparation of Tender Document

The Cities Program Administrative Clerk will assemble the entire Tender document for the
Project Manager to check and forward to Supply Management Division.

The Tender document shall consist of the entire Section A – Tender and Section B – Form of
Agreement.

However;

- Section C – Modified OPS General Conditions shall be referenced from this Manual,

- Section D- Special Provisions - General shall be referenced from this Manual except
for contract specific Special Provisions - General which will be added to the Tender
document,

- Section E - Standard Drawings and Standard Specifications will reference all the
pertinent Ontario Provincial Standard Drawings (OPSD), City of Ottawa Standard

\Section A\Outline – March 31, 2011 3


Section A - Outline Standard Tender Documents for Unit Price Contracts

Detail Drawings, Ontario Provincial Standard Specifications (OPSS) and City of


Ottawa Standard Special Provisions,

- Section F - Special Provisions, will only consist of contract specific Special


Provisions as all other pertinent Special Provisions are referenced from this Manual in
the Schedule of Prices.

Preparation of Engineers Estimate

When unit price contract packages are prepared through the ISD Standards Section, an initial
Engineers Estimate will be created by CCMS (Construction Contract Management System)
using our unit price database. This estimate will be returned to the Project Manager with the
draft contract for review.

Project Managers are requested to manually adjust any unit prices in the CCMS estimate and
return it to the Standards Section, Program Administrative Clerks to prepare the final Engineers
Estimate.

The City has an extensive unit price database and it should be reviewed prior to preparing a final
Engineers Estimate. The adjusted draft estimate (hard copy please) returned to the Standard
Section Program Clerks will assist in improving future draft estimates and maintaining the
database.

The CCMS estimate will have estimated unit prices for standard master item codes listed in
Volume 1 of the Standard Tender Documents for Unit Price Contracts, but will not have values
for non-standard contract specific item codes (999.99 numbers). These values will need to be
provided by the Project Manager.

CCMS unit rate estimates take the average of all submitted Contractor bid unit prices received
for an awarded Contract, and then calculates a running average using the last 10 contracts where
that particular standard master item code was called.

The CCMS estimated unit prices should reflect an average of bids received for a contract, but not
necessarily the lowest bid. It is an estimate tool, not a winning bid tool.

Preparation of Addendum

All addenda are to be prepared by the Project Manager and given to the Program Administration
Clerk to type for inclusion in the Tender. The addendum will be returned to the Project Manager
for review before forwarding to Supply Branch.

OPS General Condition Nov. 2006 – Modified March 2, 2015


CITY OF OTTAWA 45
MODIFIED OPS GENERAL CONDITIONS

The City of Ottawa imposes seasonal load restrictions each year to protect our
pavement network from damage during the spring thaw. The restricted period is
generally in effect between early March and mid May, although specific timing is
determined by the progression of the thaw.

As the City of Ottawa is primarily concerned with the issues of public safety and
the protection of its infrastructure, it should be made clear that the City is under
no obligation to provide exemptions from the seasonal load restrictions at any
time, as there is a high risk of damage to the pavement structure from such
operations.

Notwithstanding, exemptions to the load restrictions are granted in some cases


where the risk of damage is low, the movement of a load cannot be reduced or
reasonably rescheduled until after the restricted period, as well as various other
considerations.

Please Note: Financial hardship (or benefit) for the owner, agent, project
manager, contractor or trucking operator is NOT considered sufficient
justification for exemption.

Seasonal load restriction exemptions are handled through the Over-dimensional


Vehicle permit process as governed by City of Ottawa By-Law No. 2003-497.
Depending upon the type of operation, a Single Trip permit or a 6-month Project
permit for the entire load restricted period may be issued.

In addition to a completed Over-dimensional vehicle permit application for each


vehicle to be used during the load-restricted period, the following information
must be provided in a written letter, memorandum or email to the Pavement
Engineer with the title “Request for Seasonal Load Restriction Exemption”:
1. The proposed route,
2. Description of the materials/goods to be moved,
3. The total quantity of materials/goods to be moved,
4. The estimated number of trips per vehicle required to move the
materials/goods,
5. The proposed start and end dates for the movements,
6. Justification for potential SLR exemption,
7. Any specific information that may assist the City with the review of the
exemption application.

Over-dimensional Vehicle permit applications may be obtained through the


Traffic and Parking Operations Permit Office located on the 6th Floor at 100
Constellation Crescent (Tel: 613-580-2424, Ext.16000). Written approval or denial
of the seasonal load restriction exemption request will be provided within ten (10)
business days of receiving the required information.

Even if an exemption to the load restrictions is granted through the issuance of


an over dimensional vehicle permit, the permit holder is required to compensate
the City of Ottawa for any costs required to repair damage to public property or
infrastructure (including engineering and/or legal fees) as a result of over-
dimensional vehicle movements made by the permit holder (as outlined in
Section 39 of By-Law 2003-497).

shall be without cost to the Contractor but the Contractor shall not
become entitled to claim any damage or extra compensation from or
on account of the presence of such structure or on account of any
delay due to adjustment of same. Contractor shall arrange for work
to be done through utility. If Contractor is to do work, then

Introduction

Section D –Special Provisions - General are non-technical specifications, which can amend or
extend the Modified OPS General Conditions contained in Section C of the tender documents.

Although some of these published Special Provisions - General must appear in all City of Ottawa
construction contracts, the selection and use of specific Special Provisions - General shall be on
a contract-by-contract basis. The selection for use and the need for additional provisions
covering unique project requirements shall be in accordance with the direction provided by the
City of Ottawa Project Manager and any included warrants.

\Section D\Introduction.doc – March 31, 2005


SECTION D - OUTLINE

Section D –Special Provisions - General do not relate to any one specific tender item, but apply
to either a number of tender items or the contract as a whole. Special Provisions - General rank
third (c) in the order of precedence, GC2.02.

If a conflict exists between the Special Provisions - General and the Special Provisions - Item
Specific, the Special Provisions - General shall take precedence.

In some cases, Special Provisions - General require additional information from the Project
Manager.

A situation may be deemed to exist where some restraints have to be placed on the Contractor,
for example, in areas of high traffic volume environmental sensitivity or dense population.
Operational Constraints increase the cost of a contract, so their impact on the contract should be
carefully reviewed. The costs resulting from theses restrictions are generally not applicable to
any one tender item, and therefore the special provision introducing the restrictions would not
apply to any one tender item, and as such would be inserted as a Special Provision - General for
example: “The Contractor shall not obstruct traffic during the following peak hours: 07:00 h to
09:00 h and 16:00 h to 18:00 h”.

QUALITY VERIFICATION ENGINEERING SERVICES

All reference in the Contract Documents to Quality Verification Engineering


Services and Certificates of Conformance shall be deleted and replace with this
Special Provision - General .

Definitions

Certificate of Conformance: means a document issued by the Quality


Verification Engineer confirming that the specified components of the Work are in
General Conformance with the requirements of the Contract Documents.

General Conformance: means that, in the opinion of a professional engineer,


the standard of construction work fulfills the essential requirements of the
Contract Documents, and has been done in accordance with normally accepted
industry standards, and will perform its intended function.

Interim Inspection: means an inspection confirming that the specified


components of the Work are in General Conformance with the Contract
Documents and a written permission issued by the Quality Verification Engineer
to the Contractor to proceed to the next stage of the Work.

Quality Verification Engineer: means an Engineer qualified to provide the


quality verification engineer services specified in the Contract Documents.

Stamped: means drawings or details that have been reviewed and stamped "In
General Conformance with Contract Documents". The stamp shall include the
date and signature of the Quality Verification Engineer.

General

The Contractor shall retain one or more professional engineers to provide the
services of a Quality Verification Engineer (QVE). The Contractor shall obtain the
written consent of the Owner before retaining a professional engineer who
provided professional services to the Owner for the project.

The Contractor shall advise the Contract Administrator of the name of the QVE
before the QVE provides services to the Contractor.

The QVE shall issue Certificates of Conformance, as specified in the Contract


Documents, by completing Form OTT-D23-01 “Certificate of Conformance”. The
QVE shall also issue written permission to proceed to the next stage of the Work
following an Interim Inspection, as specified in the Contract Documents. A
Certificate of Conformance shall be issued by one QVE who shall be responsible
for all Interim Inspections of Work covered by the Certificate of Conformance.

\Section D\D-023 – March 31, 2013


March 2013
Page: 2 of 12
The Certificate of Conformance shall include the time, date and components
inspected in all Interim Inspections.

Where a QVE is unavailable to complete all the Interim Inspections that are
specified, the QVE shall issue a Certificate of Conformance covering the Interim
Inspections completed to date. The second QVE shall issue a Certificate of
Conformance covering the subsequent Interim Inspections for which the second
QVE is responsible. In this event, the Contractor shall ensure that the Certificates
cover all required inspections and shall submit them at the same time.

The QVE shall not delegate any activity that the Contract Documents require the
QVE to “witness”. For all other activities, the QVE may delegate the function to
another person where it is consistent with prudent engineering practice to do so,
and the function is performed under the supervision of the QVE.

The process prescribed in this Special Provision for correcting components of the
Work not in General Conformance with the Contract Documents shall apply
unless other remedies are prescribed elsewhere in the contract documents.

Construction

The Contractor shall submit Certificates of Conformance, with reference to the


applicable Working Drawings and other Contract Documents, to the Contract
Administrator at the milestones identified in the Contract Documents and prior to
commencing subsequent stages of the work. The Certificate of Conformance
shall be submitted within 48 hours of completing the Work described in the
Certificate of Conformance unless a different period is specified elsewhere in the
Contract Documents. Where Interim Inspections are specified, the Contractor
shall not proceed until written permission is received from the QVE. A copy of the
written permission shall be made available to the Contract Administrator upon
request.

The QVE shall seal, sign and date Certificates of Conformance indicating that
construction of the Work is in General Conformance with the stamped Working
Drawings and the requirements of the Contract Documents. No conditions or
limitations shall form part of the Certificate of Conformance or the written
permission to proceed following an Interim Inspection. Any amendments to the
Contract Documents accepted by the Owner, and related to the Certificate of
Conformance, shall be appended.

Non-Conforming Work by the Contractor

If the QVE is prevented from issuing a written permission following an Interim


Inspection, or a Certificate of Conformance, because of lack of clarity of the
Contract Documents, the QVE shall seek clarification of the requirements from
the Contract Administrator.

If components of the Work have aspects that are not in General Conformance
with the Contract Documents, the Contractor may propose an amendment to the

\Section D\D-023 – March 31, 2013


March 2013
Page: 3 of 12
Contract Documents. The Contractor shall, under the seal and signature of the
QVE, provide the Contract Administrator with an itemized, detailed description of
all aspects within the scope of the Certificate of Conformance that are not in
General Conformance with the Contract Documents. The Contractor shall also,
under the seal and signature of a professional engineer (who may or may not
also be the QVE), provide to the Contract Administrator recommendations for an
amendment to the Contract Documents that will deliver the functionality of the
original Contract Documents.
The proposal for an amendment to the Contract Documents differs from a
change proposal. A proposal for an amendment to the Contract Documents
occurs after the work has been carried out, and the Work does not conform to the
Contract Documents.

The Contract Administrator will:

i) reject the proposed amendment, and require the Contractor to take whatever
remedial measures necessary to achieve a Certificate of Conformance based on
the original Contract Documents.

or

ii) Accept the proposed amendment, but negotiate a credit from the Contractor
where the Owner deems that the amendment does not deliver the same quality
or performance as the Work specified in the Contract Documents, and require
the Contractor to submit a Certificate of Conformance for the work with the
accepted amendment attached.

or

iii) Accept the proposed amendment and require the Contractor to submit a
Certificate of Conformance for the work with the accepted amendment attached.

Contract Specific Requirements

Note to Designers: The following (non-exhaustive) list is QVE services that can
be called that do not form part of the OPSS. Modify according to contract
requirements. Experience requirements for the QVE can differ for each
component of the work that requires a Certificate of Conformance.

If there are no requirements for QVE on the Contract, please delete all content
except for the following statement: “There are no requirements for QVE services
on this contract”. Conversely, if there are additional items that require a QVE,
then they should be added and modified accordingly.
