DIVISION I GENERAL PROVISIONS

1 GENERAL


1-1.01 GENERAL


Section 1 includes specifications related to the interpretation of the contract.

The specifications are divided into 12 divisions.

Division I includes general specifications applicable to every contract unless specified as applicable only under certain conditions.

Division II includes specifications for general construction applicable to every contract unless specified as applicable only under certain conditions.

Divisions III through X include construction specifications for specific bid items.

Division XI includes specifications for common materials. For a material specified in this division, that material specified in any section must comply with the specifications in division XI.

Division XII includes construction specifications for buildings.

The bid items set forth the construction specifications that apply. The first 2 digits of a bid item code correspond to the specification section number with the same first 2 digits except for bid item code 999990 that corresponds to section 9 and unless shown otherwise in the table titled "Bid Items and Applicable Sections" in the special provisions.

The specifications are written to the Bidder before award and the Contractor after. Before award, interpret sentences written in the imperative mood as starting with The Bidder must and interpret you as the Bidder and your as the Bidder's. After award, interpret sentences written in the imperative mood as starting with The Contractor must and interpret you as the Contractor and your as the Contractor's.

After Contract approval, submit documents and direct questions to the Engineer. Orders, authorizations, and requests to the Contractor are by the Engineer.

The following items from the Department are in writing:

1. Approvals

2. Authorizations

3. Decisions

4. Notifications

5. Orders

6. Responses
The following items from the Contractor must be in writing:

1. Assignments

2. Notifications

3. Proposals

4. Reports

5. Requests, including RFIs, sequentially numbered

6. Subcontracts

7. Test results


Where a location is not specified with the words shown, specified, or described, interpret:

1. Shown as shown on the plans.

2. Specified as specified in the specifications.

3. Described as described in the Contract. Described means shown, specified, or both.


Headings are included for the purposes of organization and referencing. Inclusion of a heading with no related content, Not Used, or Reserved does not indicate that no specification exists for that subject; applicable specifications may be covered in a general or referenced specification.

Specifications in a section titled General apply to all subordinate sections within the section.

Specifications in the general section of a division apply to all sections within the division.

Sections are reserved in the Standard Specifications for correlation of special provisions and revised standard specifications with the Standard Specifications and for future expansion of the Standard Specifications.

The specifications are expressed in US customary units except where a referenced document uses the International System of Units as the standard.

Unless an object or activity is specified to be less than the total, the quantity or amount is all of the object or activity.

All items in a list apply unless the items are specified as choices.
