1.02 Materials and Workmanship
All materials, parts, components and articles incorporated in the Work shall, unless otherwise specifically provided in the Agreement, be new and of the best available grade and quality for the purpose used. All Work shall be done in a thoroughly first-class and workmanlike manner, shall be neat and orderly, and shall conform to the best trade practices generally accepted in the industry. Supplier shall verify all dimensions, measurements, grades, levels and conditions at the work site, become fully acquainted with the conditions relating to the Work and fully understand the facilities, difficulties and restrictions attending to execution of the Work.
Supplier shall comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules and regulations of governmental agencies and shall procure and pay for all permits (except pollution control permits), certificates of inspections and licenses required by any such law, ordinance, rules and regulations in the performance of the Work. Any required federal, state or local pollution control permits shall be the responsibility of RRD.
1.04 Installation Coordinator and Supplier's Responsibility
RRD shall designate one of its employees as its Installation Coordinator with respect to the Work covered hereunder and shall advise Supplier of such designation. The Installation Coordinator shall be Supplier's principal contact and shall coordinate the project and assist Supplier in obtaining the various RRD approvals required by the Agreement. Supplier shall not, under any circumstances, provide labor or material without the prior approval of the Installation Coordinator regardless of the source of the request. The Installation Coordinator has sole responsibility for the authorization of all "extras" and Work outside the scope of the Agreement. Supplier shall refer such requests for such additional Work to the Installation Coordinator, when such requests come from other RRD personnel. For matters outside the responsibility of the Installation Coordinator, the GSS Buyer designated on RRD's Purchase Order will remain the commercial/contractual contact between RRD and Supplier. Notwithstanding the above, Supplier understands it has the full responsibility to supervise and direct the Work, using Supplier's best skill and attention. Supplier shall be solely responsible for and have control over the means, methods, techniques, sequences and procedures, and for coordinating all portions, of the Work.
Before commencing Work, Supplier shall assure it meets the following insurance requirements:
Except as otherwise provided in the Agreement, payment shall be made as follows:
On or before the tenth (10th) day of each month Supplier shall invoice for 90% of the contract value of labor and materials in place as of the end of the preceding calendar month, less the aggregate of amounts previously paid to Supplier by RRD; such invoice shall be made to RRD's Accounts Payable Department or other location as directed by GSS. If the Work has been performed as described in such invoice and in accordance with the Agreement, payments shall be made within the time period specified in the Agreement.
1.07 Changes in the Work
Supplier agrees to make any and all changes, furnish the materials and perform such extra Work as RRD may require as a reasonable addition to or reduction from the contract price as hereinafter provided. Except for minor modifications in the Work not involving extra cost and not inconsistent with the purpose of the project and except in an emergency endangering life or property, no changes shall be made or extra Work performed unless authorized by RRD and confirmed by a written Purchase Change Order from RRD. No claim for an addition to the contract price for such Work shall be valid unless so authorized and ordered. Prior to authorizing any change or extra Work, the parties shall reach mutual agreement from the list of the alternative methods stated below how the proposed change or extra Work is to be priced which shall be confirmed by the written Purchase Change Order, on the specific terms of the pricing method so designated. The alternatives for the pricing proposed Work changes are as follows:
1.08 Completion of Installation
Upon completion of the project and before final payment, Supplier shall (1) furnish one complete set of marked drawings showing the sizes and locations of all installations and the as-built conditions of the project as actually completed, and (2) turn over all complete copies (as stated on the Agreement) of all manufacturer's instruction sheets supplied with any installed equipment.
RRD personnel or equipment manufacturer's representatives shall be permitted to use tools to test, adjust and make any equipment installed by Supplier functional.
All exceptions to the Agreement shall be detailed and accompany the quotations. Exceptions not specifically included in the Agreement will not be honored after the contract has been signed.
1.11 Failure of Performance
If Supplier defaults in performing any of the conditions set forth in the Agreement, RRD may, on written notice to Supplier, terminate the Agreement and may enter upon and employ others to finish the Work. In such event, and not to the exclusion of other remedies which may be available to RRD, the costs of finishing the Work shall be deducted from the contract price to the extent the balance thereof is sufficient to pay such costs and Supplier shall pay any excess of such costs to RRD.
