The Contractor is advised that all testing shall be carried out in accordance with the best practices of the trade, best management practices (bmp) and as recommended in writing by the engineering/technical/test staff of the manufacturer of the equipment and he should plan and price his test work accordingly. In no case will test recommendations of a manufacturer’s sales or management groups be considered sufficient.

Factory testing of equipment is in all cases required and test data from these tests shall be provided to the Engineer prior to shipment. At times the Department will want witnessed testing by Department personnel or representatives and at other times this will not be required. To establish a base line for pricing, the Bidder will assume that any piece of equipment with an invoice cost to the Contractor of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000.00) or more will require witnessed testing. The MDWASD will in the Specifications try in all cases to note which items will require witnessed testing. However, absent such list the Bidder shall use the $20,000 level for pricing purposes. In all cases during the cost breakdown process, the Contractor shall agree with the Engineer on the amount of a credit to the MDWASD for each item to be witness tested in the instance such test is canceled. All costs for factory testing will be included in the prices bid and no extra compensation will be allowed. In accordance with Miami-Dade County Implementing Order 3-9, Accounts Receivable Adjustments, if money is owed by the Contractor to the County, whether under this Contract or for any other purpose, the County reserves the right to retain such amount from payment due by County to the Contractor under this Contract. Such retained amount shall be applied to the amount owed by the Contractor to the County. The Contractor shall have no further claim to such retained amounts which shall be deemed full accord and satisfaction of the amount due by the County to the Contractor for the applicable payment due herein. “Pursuant to Miami-Dade County Budget Ordinance No. 13-103 this Contract is subject to a user access fee under the County’s User Access Program (UAP) in the amount of two percent (2%). All construction services provided under this contract are subject to the 2% UAP. This fee applies to all Contract usage whether by County Departments or by any other governmental, quasi-governmental or not-for-profit entity. From every payment made to the Contractor under this contract (including the payment of retainage), the County will deduct the two percent (2%) UAP fee provided in the ordinance and the Contractor will accept such reduced amount as full compensation for any and all deliverables under the contract. The County shall retain the 2% UAP for use by the County to help defray the cost of its procurement program. Contractor participation in this pay request reduction portion of the UAP is mandatory.” “Pursuant to Ordinance 13-103, if the base bid is above $500,000, the UAP will be applicable.”
