Background Narrative:


On June 17, 2014, the Board of Trustees approved award of bids for twenty-two (22) scopes of work in the amount of $50,266,678 for the Culinary Arts Academy & District Offices (CAA/DO), Coil School for the Arts (CSA) and Parking Structure (Phase 2 Construction Bid Categories 04 through 23 & 25). Included in the award was a contract with J.M. Farnan Co., Inc. in the amount of $645,366.

At this time it is requested that the Board of Trustees approve Change Order No. 10 with J.M. Farnan Co., Inc. (JMF) in the amount of $3,850 for the CAA/DO project, amending their contract to $727,699.44, exceeding the allowable change order contingency by a total amount of $17,829.84. The change order amount is for JMF seeking compensation for providing drinking fountains on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the CAA/DO building, as the fountains are not shown on the plumbing plans and therefore the contractor did not include the fountains as part of their bid. Owner/RCCD has agreed to pay half of the requested cost which makes up the $3,850. Detailed cost is listed on the attached Change Order Summary.
