TC 5.03 SUBCONTRACTING AND SUBCONTRACTORS


In addition to the provisions of GP-8.01 (Subcontracting), the following shall apply on MDTA
Contracts:
The subcontractors named in the Contractors bid and approved by the MDTA and those
approved when subsequently submitted shall perform the Contract items as approved by the
MDTA. Requests for permission to sublet, assign, or otherwise dispose of any portion of the
Contract shall be in writing and include the item number or numbers and the dollar value. The
Contractor shall give assurance that the minimum wage for labor, as specified in the Contract
Documents, shall apply to labor performed on all work sublet, assigned, or otherwise disposed
of.
When a subcontractor has been approved by the MDTA for the performance of specific items
of work on the Contract, the MDTA will not allow the Contractor to substitute another
subcontractor, except in the event the Contractor requests in writing that the approved
subcontractor be relieved of the necessity of performance of the work. Any change of
subcontractors shall be requested in writing by the Contractor and shall have the written
concurrence of the previously designated subcontractor.
Concurrence shall not be
unreasonably delayed, in the judgment of the MDTA.
If a subcontractor does not perform to the satisfaction of the Contractor, the Contractor may
request to be allowed to perform the work with his own forces or request that another
subcontractor, mentioned by name, be substituted. When reasons submitted for the
substitution of the subcontractor indicate that the change will be in the best interest of the
MDTA, approval of the request will be granted.
Roadside production of materials, unless performed by the Contractor, shall be considered as
subcontracting. This shall be construed to mean the production of crushed stone, gravel, or
other materials by means of portable or semi-portable crushing, screening, or washing plants,
established or reopened in the vicinity of the work for the purpose of supplying materials to be
incorporated into the work on a designated project or projects.

The purchase of sand, gravel, crushed stone, crushed slag, batched concrete aggregates, ready
mix concrete, or other materials produced at and furnished from established and recognized
commercial plants, together with the delivery of the materials to the site of the work by the
producer or by recognized commercial hauling companies, will not be considered as
subcontracting.
Subcontractors Prompt Payment. The Contractor is responsible for making timely
payments to all Subcontractors and Suppliers and providing written certification as required
by Section 15-226 of the State Finance and Procurement Article of the Annotated Code of
Maryland and COMAR 21.10.08. This Contract and all subcontracts issued under this
Contract are subject to the provisions of Section 15-226 of the State Finance and Procurement
Article and COMAR 21.10.08. A Contractor shall include in its subcontracts for work under
this Contract, wording that incorporates the provisions, duties and obligations of State Finance
and Procurement Article, Section 15-226 and COMAR 21.10.08.
This Contract requires the Contractor to make prompt payment to all subcontractors any
undisputed amount including retainage to which the subcontractor is entitled for work under
the Contract within 10 days of receiving payment from the MDTA.
Each month, the Construction Project Engineer (CPE) will review the current pay items with
the Contractor to ensure that all work satisfactorily completed within specifications is included
in the monthly progress payment. For payment purposes, the same quantity totals used to
compute the payment to the Contractor will be the basis for payment to the subcontractor.
If the subcontractor does not receive payment within the required 10 days, the subcontractor
shall notify the Project Engineer in writing of the amount in dispute including the item
numbers and payment quantity for each.
The Project Engineer will then notify the Director of Construction of the dispute. The
Director of Construction or his representative will verbally contact the Contractor within 48
hours to ascertain whether or not a performance dispute exists which necessitates nonpayment to the subcontractor.
If a performance dispute exists, the Contractor must demonstrate that there is a valid basis to
withhold payment from the subcontractor. If the Contractor withholds payment from a
subcontractor, the Contractor shall provide to the subcontractor written notice of the
withholding of payment. The notice shall detail the reasons for withholding payment as well
as the amount. A copy of the notice shall be provided to the Surety and the Project Engineer.
If no valid dispute exists, the Contractor will be directed to make immediate payment to the
subcontractor. The subcontractor will be responsible for notifying the Director of
Construction if this payment is not made. Upon receipt of notification, the Director of
Construction will schedule a meeting with the Contractor and subcontractor to verify and
discuss the non-payment issue. This meeting will be held at the MDTAs offices within 2
working days of the MDTAs contact with the subcontractor.

If it is determined that the Contractor has withheld payment to the subcontractor without
cause, further progress payments to the Contractor will be withheld until the subcontractor is
paid. In addition, MDTA may order a suspension of work or other administrative actions as it
sees fit.
The MDTA may require the Contractor to pay a penalty to the subcontractor, in an amount not
exceeding $100 per day, from the date the payment was required. A penalty will not be
imposed for any period that the Director of Construction determines the subcontractor was not
diligent in reporting nonpayment in conformance with the Contract documents.
If an action is taken as stated above, the Contractor shall notify the MDTAs Project Engineer
when payment is made. After the MDTAs Project Engineer verifies that payment has been
made to the subcontractor, the MDTA shall release withheld progress payments.
A Contractor or subcontractor may appeal the decision of the Director of Construction to the
Chief Engineer in conformance with GP-5.15 (Disputes). The Chief Engineer will render a
final decision on this issue in conformance with GP-5.15 (Disputes). A decision of the
MDTA under these Terms and Conditions is not subject to judicial review or the provisions of
COMAR 21.10.04.
Nothing in this provision shall be construed to prevent the subcontractor from pursuing a
claim with the surety under the Contractors payment bond at any time.

(3) Variable Retainage. The Contract will be subject to a variable retainage based upon
the Authoritys performance evaluations of the Contractor.
Those qualifying may have retainage reduced upon request of the Contractor with consent of
surety. This request must be processed through the Project Engineer. If at any time during
the performance of the work, the evaluation of the Contractor changes, retainage reduction
may be reconsidered.
After 15 percent project completion and upon request, Contractors with A evaluations for
the last two years may be reduced from 5 percent to 2 percent. Project completion
percentage will be based upon actual work completed (excluding monies paid for stored
materials). An interim evaluation of the current project would need to be completed and
must be an A. Contractors with A evaluations for the last two years may petition to have
all retainage at that point released upon completion of a significant milestone. Release of full
retainage will be at the discretion of the Project Engineer. Retainage will continue at 2
percent until the next milestone or completion of the contract.
At 50 percent project completion and upon request, Contractors with B evaluations or any
combination of A and B evaluations for the last two years may be reduced from
5 percent to 2.5 percent, and remain at that level until released upon final payment. Project
completion percentage will be based upon actual work completed (excluding monies paid
for stored materials). An interim evaluation of the current project would need to be
completed and would need to be an A or B.
Contractors with C evaluations or any combination of C and D evaluations for the
past two years will begin and remain at 5 percent for the life of the project.
Contractors with a D evaluation for the last two years will begin at 5 percent. Project
performance will be evaluated monthly with the retainage being raised to 10 percent for
continued D performance.
New Bidders. Contractors who have not been previously rated by the Authority may be
eligible for a reduction in retainage. To be eligible, their past performance on highway and
bridge work shall be documented by the government agency with whom they had a contract
and their performance shall be documented on Authority forms.

OCCUPYING WETLANDS
The Contractor is hereby alerted to the importance of preserving wetland areas. The Administration,
in conjunction with the various environmental agencies, has developed these Contract Documents so as
to minimize or eliminate disturbance and damage to existing wetland areas. In order to accomplish
this, the following must be rigidly adhered to:
(a) Prior to performing any work on the project, the areas of wetland will be identified and marked as
directed by the Administration. All personnel of the Contractor or sub-contractors shall be
alerted to these designated areas.
(b) The Contractor or sub-contractors shall not impact any wetland or waterway, whether it be
permanently or temporarily unless otherwise stipulated in the permit application and approved
as an authorized action by the appropriate regulatory agency. No fill shall be placed in these
areas without a permit.
(c) If a Contractor or sub-contractor has to impact a wetland or waterway that is not covered by
an existing wetland permit, they shall immediately notify the Engineer. The Engineer will
notify the Environmental Programs Division to determine the extent of any permit
modification. At that time the Environmental Programs Division will request a permit
modification or submit a permit application.
(d) If the Contractor impacts any wetland or waterway for which they do not have a wetland
permit, they shall be responsible for restoring the wetland areas and possibly mitigating the
wetland impacts to the full satisfaction of the environmental agencies, which could include
monetary compensation.
(e) The cost of restoration and mitigation of the impacted areas shall be at no additional cost to
the Administration.
The importance of not abusing the wetland areas cannot be overemphasized. Abuse of wetland areas
could jeopardize the operation of the total Contract and could be cause for a shut-down. If a shut-down
occurs because of the Contractor's failure to secure the required permits (i.e. the Contractors method
of work includes impacts not approved by previously acquired permits), the Contractors negligence or
operations, all costs and damages to the Contractor and to the State will be at no additional cost to the
Administration. Noncompliance with these requirements will not be considered for an extension of
Contract time.

2. Splay hangers only where required and, if permitted with fire-resistance-rated
ceilings, to miss obstructions; offset resulting horizontal forces by bracing,
countersplaying, or other equally effective means.
3. Where width of ducts and other construction within ceiling plenum produces
hanger spacings that interfere with location of hangers at spacings required to
support standard suspension-system members, install supplemental suspension
members and hangers in form of trapezes or equivalent devices.
4. Secure wire hangers to ceiling-suspension members and to supports above with a
minimum of three tight turns. Connect hangers directly either to structures or to
inserts, eye screws, or other devices that are secure and appropriate for substrate
and that will not deteriorate or otherwise fail due to age, corrosion, or elevated
temperatures.
5. Secure flat, angle, channel, and rod hangers to structure, including intermediate
framing members, by attaching to inserts, eye screws, or other devices that are
secure and appropriate for both the structure to which hangers are attached and
the type of hanger involved. Install hangers in a manner that will not cause them
to deteriorate or fail due to age, corrosion, or elevated temperatures.
6. Do not support ceilings directly from permanent metal forms or floor deck. Fasten
hangers to cast-in-place hanger inserts, postinstalled mechanical or adhesive
anchors, or power-actuated fasteners that extend through forms into concrete.
