SECTION 4. POST CONSTRUCTION AWARD SERVICES
PCAS to be performed by the A-E are usually requested after the award of a construction
contract. Normally the level of effort and the associated A-E fees for these services are
negotiated together with the project design and engineering services fees. The "Scope" will
indicate the PCAS to be requested after award of the construction contract. If for some reason
(e.g., project cancellation) the construction contract is not awarded, a deductive modification to
the awarded A-E contract will be initiated and executed.
4.1.1 A-E Communications During Construction. Direct communication between the A-E
and the OICC, the ROICC or their designated representatives is authorized only for the services
that have been awarded (with the basic A-E contract), as indicated in the "Scope." Direct
communication between the A-E and the construction contractor is strictly prohibited, unless
authorized by the OICC or his designated representative. If the construction contractor contacts
the A-E without prior authorization by the OICC or ROICC, the A-E shall refer the construction
contractor to the OICC or ROICC. The A-E shall submit to the ROICC, with a copy to the
PDE, a written report of the communication with the construction contractor, within five (5)
working days following the contact. The report shall include the purpose and persons involved
in the discussions; the date, time and place of the discussions; a summary of the discussions that
took place and any agreements that were made.
