Where trade names, brand names, or manufacturer’s names are followed by “or approved equal”, Bidders may offer items or materials equal in quality and having the same durability and efficiency if the Bidder first receives written approval from the Landscape Architect prior to the date and time of the Bid Opening and complying with requirements indicated in Document 00 21 00, “Instructions to Bidders.” The Bidder shall identify such substitutions by name, kind, and type with the Bid.

CONTRACT SCOPE:

The Project will include the conversion of an existing grass field to a synthetic profile, including protection of track pavements, mass excavation, perimeter curb nailer, header pipes and lateral underdrainage, and the proper subbase and synthetic turf system.

A contract will be awarded to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder, complying with the conditions of the Instructions to Bidders and Advertisements for Public Bids. The Owner, however, reserves the right to reject any and all bids, and waive any informalities, discrepancies, omissions, variances, or irregularities in bids received in its sole discretion. If a contract is awarded, it will be to the “lowest responsible and responsive bidder” in accordance with Indiana’s Public Work Projects Act, Indiana Code 36-1-12. The bidder agrees to hold open its bid for a minimum of sixty (60) days from the date of the bid opening.

The Contract to which the Owner will be a party will contain a provision prohibiting the other party to the Contract, and their subcontractors, from engaging in employment practice that constitutes a discrimination against a person because of the person’s race, color, sex, religion, national origin or ancestry. The successful Bidder shall provide an affidavit with each billing assuring the Owner that this provision has not been violated.
