Hi everyone! I’ve been reading the lovely contracts over the past few weeks and I have a few questions about B101 section 4. I noticed that some of the additional services listed for the architect (A) are very similar to items in section 3 “Architects basic services”.
For example, 3.5.1 says the A has to provide a list of prospective contractors and obtain bids or proposals, confirm responsiveness, determine the successful bidder, and award and prepare contracts. In 188.8.131.52 the A is to evaluate qualifications of entities providing bids. Isn’t the A already doing that in their basic services? I would hope that by providing a list of contractors and by determining the successful bid the A would know that the contractor would be qualified for the job.
I may be looking into it too much but I failed PJM first time around because of contracts so I’m really trying to get a good grip on these!!
