  1. Questions and Answers/Updates to Surveys: GCLBA has received many questions and some updates to surveys. Another addendum will be released next week responding to questions received and highlighting known changes to bid tabs/surveys.

 Each bidder must acknowledge receipt of this addendum on IFB SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS CHECKLIST.

The following information is to be incorporated into the bidding and contract documents and acknowledged by all bidders for the above referenced project. Bids submitted that do not acknowledge this Addendum will be deemed incomplete and may be rejected on such basis. 

1.                   Information regarding Pre-qualification and Capacity. Please see Attachment 1.
2.                   Questions and Answers. Please see Attachment 2.
3.                   REVISED UNIT PRICE FOR ABATEMENT AND DEMOLITION WORK and UNIT PRICE SCHEDULE FOR NON-SCOPE WORK ADD/DEDUCT. Please see Attachment 3. These Revised documents from Attachment D are to be used in place of those originally published. Changes include:

    1. Removal of 1313 Illinois Ave from bid list 22-005-1 due to the need to resolve basement access with EGLE/MIOSHA
    2. Addition of Well Abandonment to UNIT PRICE SCHEDULE FOR NON-SCOPE WORK ADD/DEDUCT

4.                   Updates to Surveys/Bid tabs/ ABATEMENT BID TABS. Please see Attachment 4 for updated abatement tabs indicating changes with yellow highlighting (an addition/change from previous version) or dark grey highlighting (removed from updated survey). Where changes are indicated, updated surveys have been uploaded to box.com. Greyed out items have been removed. They were originally listed for potential electronic components. GCLBA has determined that these specific items are to be treated as household hazardous waste and disposed of with demolition and do not need to be abated prior. Please note that the bid tabs are to indicate material to be removed and successful bidders must still request access to, and review, surveys on box.com in order to make informed and reliable bids. Many surveys also highlight ACM that contains less than 1% asbestos that are not required to be abated prior to demolition and so do not appear on the abatement tabs. Work around material with less than 1% asbestos is still regulated. Please review Q&A and be sure that you are bidding and protecting workers accordingly.

  1. Coordination of Utility Cuts:

Please note that unless otherwise noted, Genesee County Land Bank Authority coordinates gas and electric cuts with Consumers Energy and provides successful bidders with cut confirmations to utilize in obtaining permits.

In general, GCLBA does our best to put properties out to bid either after retirements are complete or as close as possible to when we anticipate them to be complete. The same applies to water and sewer cuts within City of Flint limits. Successful bidders are to coordinate water/sewer/well cuts/abandonment as necessary in municipalities that are outside the City of Flint. GCLBA coordinates Consumers Retirements for all properties. Sometimes there may be some delays in retirements that require some coordination regarding scheduling once contracted, but we aim to minimize those instances.

Each bidder must acknowledge receipt of this addendum on IFB SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS CHECKLIST.
