Title
CONSTRUCTION COMMITTEE FORWARDED WITHOUT RECOMMENDATION approving an increase in the Contract Modification Authority (CMA) to Contract No. PS0933432406A with STV Incorporated (STV) in the amount of $250,000, increasing the total CMA from $500,000 to $750,000 for the design support during construction for the Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station.

Issue
ISSUE

Design-Build Contract No. C0970 was awarded for the construction of Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station in February 2014. The Design-Builder has required assistance to address questions related to the preliminary design. This has resulted in a higher than anticipated level of involvement by STV. Staff has used up the CMA that remained in the contract when it issued a Contract Modification for design support during construction (DSDC).

Discussion
DISCUSSION

Staff came to the Board in January 2013 to authorize the Chief Executive Officer to increase the cumulative Contract Modification Authority (CMA) for Contract No. PS0933432406a to $500,000. At the time, staff had rejected bids to construct the Patsaouras Plaza Busway Station because all bids exceeded the LOP. Staff needed STV's services to conduct value engineering and re-design the busway station; prepare the project documents for re-bidding the work; and to provide assistance, such as answering questions from prospective bidders, during the re-bid process. A Contract Modification was also issued to provide DSDC services. The design-builder has required a higher than anticipated level of effort from STV to address questions related to the preliminary design and to assist with issues that require coordination with CALTRANS.
