ALLOWANCES FOR ADDITIONAL WORK
If the Contractor is directed to perform
additional work on a cost-plus percentage basis, as provided for herein,
the allowance for use of the Contractor's Construction Equipment as called
for in this Contract shall be on the basis of a fixed allowance per hour
which shall be determined as follows:
Allowance Per Hour - The allowance per
hour shall be of the hourly used rate applied to the actual number of operating
hours, or fractions thereof, that the equipment is used in the performance
of additional work regardless of the number of hour used per day.
Hourly Used Rate - The hourly used rate
shall be considered all inclusive and shall be computed based on the actual
number of hours used at the current NIA Equipment Rental Rates approved
by proper authorities.
No allowance will be made for use of any
equipment that is not in good repair and operating condition as determined
by the NIA. Short periods of idle time normal to regular servicing(aggregate
not exceeding 5% of the total operating time) will not be deducted from
the operating hours.
