Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (May 31, 2006)


May 31, 2006

Last week the Engineer called a meeting to discuss our price escalation request. While this topic was the main subject of discussion, City maintenance personnel were on hand and numerous other matters were discussed. There appeared to be general consensus that our price adjustment requests were reasonable and justified. These requests will be lumped together with price adjustment requests from those involved in other phases to submit to the City Council for approval.

The first graphics review produced a long list of items needing to be addressed, many well outside the scope of graphics. Since the City accepted our alternate proposal to their original request, there have been some scope changes versus the original bid documents. This has resulted in it not being completely clear to the Engineer what is and isn't included in our current scope of work. Recall the unusual situation of our receiving a notice to proceed on this project about 3 months prior to the Engineer (prime consultant) receiving a contract.

The Engineer has asked for a second graphics review meeting in the next few weeks, assuming a re-review of all the items from the first graphics meeting would be complete by that time. That won't be the case, but we do need to have another meeting to continue to proceed in that direction.
