01 NCAC 30F .0202           PRE‑BID CONFERENCES AND SITE REVIEWS

(a)  The Capital Projects Coordinator shall evaluate each assigned project to determine if the complexity of a project warrants conducting one or more pre‑bid conferences including site visits.  The Capital Projects Coordinator shall be responsible for ensuring that the owner's representatives are familiar with the contract requirements and the consequences of the construction work on the owner.

(b)  This step is included as attempts may be made by the owner to request that additional tasks be performed by the contractor to meet the owner's special requirements without the capital projects coordinator's and designer's knowledge and the contract plans and specifications do not contain any provision for these special requirements.  Development of any special provisions and a general understanding of the contract requirements are a vital part of the contract process prior to the opening of bids.
