Section 6

Page 128
PERFORMANCE BASED MANAGEMENT & MAINTENANCE OF ROADS

Furthermore, assistance must be rendered and any injured party be transported to a hospital which is capable of providing treatment for accident victims, within a further 30 minutes. The Contractor needs to have already identified a sufficient number of hospitals, which are sufficiently equipped, resourced, and manned by competent staff, to be able to provide appropriate treatment to accident victims, so that the field coordinator may respond quickly to any emergency and achieve the required response times. The Contractor is to keep records of all activity with regard to assistance rendered under this Specification clause, noting the Time of Notification (call out) of the ambulance, the arrival time at the accident site, nature of the injuries of the accident victims, details of any first aid administered, and the time of departure to, and arrival at, the hospital. Performance / Service Quality Levels The required level of service will be provided when it is clear from records of the Control Centre, Police, the Contractor, etc., that the response to each call out for an ambulance service is such that the arrival of the ambulance vehicle at the accident / incident site was within 15 minutes of notification in 95% of cases, but IN NO CASE later than 30 minutes after notification, and that, furthermore, assistance was rendered and any injured party transported to hospital within a further 30 minutes, again in 95% of cases. Measurement and Detection Engineer, on receipt of information about the accident may depute his personnels to accident site or hospital (as the case may be) to verify from the victims whether they are provided with the service in accordance with service quality levels as mentioned above in the clause. Carrying out above verification checks is left solely on the discretion of the Engineer and he may select any particular incident for verification on random basis. Any deviation from expected service quality levels will be recorded by Engineer for further action. For the purpose of assessing compliance under Sub-clause B.3.3.2, the Engineer will exercise his judgment on the basis of his comparison. B.2.3 Initial Rehabilitation Works 2.3.1 The Contractor will have to carry out Initial Rehabilitation Works as directed by Engineer based on Initial condition survey.

include all costs of materials, etc, and necessary liaison with authorities and their subcontractors. B.2.4.2 Procedure for Requesting Improvement Works The Engineer, upon initial condition survey as per clause 1.3 of GCC issue an order to carry out the improvement works. The order will specify the type of works, their estimated quantities and the time allowed for their execution. B.2.5 Emergency Works The Contractor will carry out Emergency Works on the Engineers instruction only, as all items are provisional quantities to provide repairs and/or new items not existing at the time of bidding. The Initial Condition Survey will record encroachments, abandoned vehicles and building materials etc. The Engineer will determine if obstructions are to be removed by the local authorities or by payment to the Contractor under Schedule 3 or Day works. B.2.5.1 Definition of Unforeseen Natural Phenomena Emergency Works are designed to repair those damages to the roads under contract, which are caused directly by unforeseen natural phenomena with imponderable consequences occurring either in the area of the roads or elsewhere, but with a direct impact on the roads. Unforeseen Natural Phenomena are defined as (i) rainfalls and winds of an extraordinary intensity and/or duration, (ii) major landslides which have their origin outside the right-of-way of the road, (iii) floods during which water levels rise above a certain maximum, (iv) earthquakes above a certain intensity, etc. This must exclude normal damages, such as trees falling on the road, minor erosions of the road and embankments, and damages caused by traffic accidents; those must be remedied by the Contractor as a part of his normal obligations under the contract.] B.2.5.2 Procedure for Requesting Emergency Works If damages clearly caused by Unforeseen Natural Phenomena result in a reduction of service quality levels below the normal threshold values specified in this contract, the Contractor may make a formal request to the Engineer to carry out Emergency Works designed specifically to remedy those damages. If the Contractor decides to make a request for Emergency Works, he must (i) immediately inform the Engineer of his intention to do so, by telephone, radio or other means, (ii) document the circumstances of the Force Major event and the damages caused, through photographs, video and other suitable means, (iii) prepare a written request, stating the type of works he intends to carry out, their exact location and the estimated quantities and costs, including photographic documentation. In any case, a request for Emergency Works must be made immediately after the Contractor gains knowledge of the existence of damages caused by Unforeseen Natural Phenomena. The Engineer, upon receipt of the request and not later than 24 hours thereafter, will evaluate the request made by the Contractor based on a site visit, and issue an order to carry out the Emergency Works. The order will specify the type of works, their estimated quantities, the remuneration to be paid to the Contractor, and the time allowed for their execution. B.2.5.3 Provision for Emergency Works The total contract amount will include a fixed Provisional Sum for Emergency Works during the contract period (which may be estimated somewhere between 5 and 25 percent of the total contract amount.] The financial bids to be submitted by the bidders shall exclude the amount of the provision.

B.2.5.4 Obligations of Contractor during Emergencies and Emergency Works Given the nature of this contract and the fact that Emergency Works are remunerated separately, the Contractor will, during the execution of Emergency Works, continue to be responsible for assuring the normal service quality levels on all roads included in the contract. In particular, the Contractor will do everything reasonably possible in order to ensure the normal use of all the roads under contract, including the sections affected by emergencies. If road traffic has been interrupted because of an emergency, the Contractor will take the measures necessary (i) to reopen the road to traffic in the shortest time possible, and (ii) maintain the road open during emergency works, without being entitled to a specific compensation for those measures. This is valid specifically for trees or other objects, which may have fallen on the road, damage to access ramps to bridges, erosion of embankments, collapse of slopes, traffic accidents, flooding, etc. B.2.5.5 Minor Repairs Made Necessary by Unforeseen Natural Phenomena If the works necessary to remedy damages caused by a Unforeseen Natural Phenomena are below certain threshold values, the Contractor will carry out those works as part of his normal obligations and without having the right to invoke the provision of the contract concerning emergencies and the remuneration of emergency works. In these cases the consent of the Engineer is not needed and the Contractor will simply carry out the works on his own initiative. He will nevertheless inform the Engineer of the damages occurred and the remedial measures taken. The threshold values for minor repairs are as shown in the table below: [Note: Below is a sample table which may need to be adapted to the specific circumstances of the roads under contract]

He may do so on his own initiative, at any time and anywhere on the roads included in the contract. The Engineer will use his own means for those inspections, or require a third party audit as stated in Sub Clause B.1.3. If the Engineer either a) detects any road sections where the service quality criteria are not met, or b) becomes aware that the Contractor is not adequately providing the User and Operation Services, then he shall be obliged to inform the Contractor within 24 hours, in writing, in order to enable the Contractor to take remedial action, in accordance with the response times indicated elsewhere in the Contract. The results of informal inspections, on their own, may not be used by the Engineer for the purposes of correcting the Contractors Monthly Statements, applying reduction in certification of Invoice payments, or imposing penalties or liquidated damages, as the case maybe. However, all instances of non-compliance will be recorded and, in the event of protracted noncompliance as described in sub clause B.4.3, may be considered as contributing to a case for Termination of the Contract under Clause 59 of the GCC B.3.2 Procedure of Formal Inspection for Routine Maintenance Works

B.3.2.1 Purpose of Formal Inspections The main purpose of the formal inspections is to enable the Engineer to verify the information presented in the Contractors Monthly Report (including Compliance Report) and Monthly Statement and Invoice, by comparison with actual measurements taken at various locations on the Highway, to ensure that compliance with Service Quality levels is being met, and to make adjustments to the Interim Payment Certificate as necessary. Formal inspections will be scheduled in advance and carried out jointly by the Contractor and the Engineer, under the supervision of the latter. B.3.2.2 Timing of Inspection The Engineer will notify the Contractor of his intention to carry out a formal inspection, giving at least 48 hours notice, and indicating the precise limits of the section to be inspected (see B.3.2.3), together with the exact date, time and location where the formal inspection is to begin. The Contractor is obliged to be present at the date, time and location specified by the Engineer, himself providing the physical means of inspection, as indicated in Para B.3.2.4. Formal inspections will normally, but not necessarily, be scheduled to begin within five (5) days after the presentation of the monthly statement by the Contractor to the Engineer; The Joint

inspections will be carried out and observations recorded in the standard tables, as provided. in Annexure - 1. B.3.2.3 Extent of Inspection Regular monthly formal inspections (excluding follow-up visits) shall cover a sample of at least twenty five percent (25 %) of each of the Highway Corridor sections under the Contract, so that the whole of the Highway Corridor shall be inspected every four months, and the Engineer shall select this sample section, on a random basis, to be representative of the whole project for that month. However, during the course of the Contract, the Engineer may increase the total length of the road sections to be inspected, in particular if numerous cases of non-compliance have been recorded in earlier inspections. Observations made on the sample inspection section shall be considered to be representative of the whole of the highway under the Contract, and non-compliance with any service quality level, observed on the sample inspected section, shall be considered as if the whole of the highway is non-compliant in that respect. Similarly, a sample section, which is shown to be compliant, shall be taken to indicate that the whole Highway is compliant. B.3.2.4 Means Used for Inspection During formal inspections, the Contractors Self-control Unit will work in close collaboration with the Engineer. The Contractor will provide the physical and manpower resources needed for the inspection; and may be similar to those normally used by the Self-control Unit for the Contractors continuous self-evaluation of the Works and Services, in particular: a) Vehicles of the type most typically used by road users but having seating and windows so arranged and configured as to permit both sideways and rear facing inspection to take place during the inspection tour. b) Qualified support staff, normally including, as a minimum, the qualified staff of the Self-control Unit, plus assistants as necessary. c) All equipment, tools and instruments needed to undertake the inspection. B.3.2.5 Inspection Memorandum During the formal inspection, in addition to recording the information in the standard tables, the Engineer shall also prepare a brief Memorandum describing (i) the general circumstances of the site visit, including date, road sections visited, persons present, etc., (ii) the nature and location of any non-compliance which may have been detected, and (iii) the time granted by the Engineer to the Contractor to remedy the detected defects (Period of Grace). The Inspection Memorandum is to be copied to the Contractor within 24 hours of the end of the Inspection. B.3.2.6 Period of Grace and Follow Up Inspection For each individual case of non-compliance, the Engineer will give the Contractor the opportunity to remedy the cause of the non-compliance, within a Period of Grace based on the normal response times given in Sub Part B.2, but in no cases later than 7 days from the date of such inspection, after which time a formal Follow-Up Inspection will be fixed and made by the Engineer, jointly with the Contractor, in order to verify that the Contractor has indeed remedied the cause of non-compliance. A Follow-up memorandum, in the form of an Appendix to the Inspection Memorandum (subSub-clause B.3.2.4), should be prepared by the Engineer and copied to the Contractor within 24 hours of the Follow-up Inspection.

Certification for Payment of Invoice

Based on the outcome of the formal inspection, as recorded in the Inspection Memorandum, and any subsequent Follow Up Inspections and Memoranda, and the monthly service assessment, as recorded in the Service Compliance Memorandum, the Engineer will immediately correct any errors or misrepresentations in the Contractors Monthly Report and Monthly Statement, and make adjustment to the Contractors Invoice, in line with any instances of non-compliance which have not been remedied within the Period of Grace, in accordance with the procedure set forth in Sub - Clause B.4.1 of this Contract, B.3.4 Initial Grace Period for achieving Service Quality Levels In order to respect the Contractors initial mobilization period, the Contractor will be allowed a grace period of 30 days from the Commencement Date, during which period the Contactor will not be penalized for failing to achieve full compliance with the Service Quality levels. However, the following limitations will apply to the stated grace period. a. b. c. Existing potholes shall all be repaired within 10 days of commencement date Existing damaged guardrails shall be repaired within 15 days of the date of commencement. The fundamentals of the Incident Management System shall be in operation immediately upon commencement of the Contract.

Performance-Based Variations to Payment Certification

B.4.1 Certification of Payment Items In accordance with Clause 42 of the GCC, payments will not be certified for any item of work or service, which, following the Inspection and Assessment Procedures outlined in Sub-Clauses B.3.2 and B.3.3 of this Specification, is deemed to be non-compliant with respect to Service Quality Levels requirements. B.4.2 Determination of Payment Reductions B.4.2.1 Routine Maintenance B.4.2.2 Measurement and Payment of Routine Maintenance: Payment shall include provision for all costs associated with the management, administration, plant, equipment, labour and materials in keeping all items within the specified Service Quality levels as indicated in Schedule B 4. Payment shall be as a Lump Sum in equal monthly payments over the Contract period. These payments are subject to penalties made on the Contractor for non-compliance. Non-Compliance fractions are taken from the Standard Reporting Forms as per Annex.1 This form will then show the percentage of Non-Compliance for item group for each 5km section and the result of this form will be inserted in the Evaluation of Service Level Form (Annex 2) to get coefficient of non-compliance for the section. The overall coefficient of non-compliance for the road contract in a particular month is determined by calculating the simple average of the coefficients of non- compliance of all 5km test sections of that month determined by Engineer for the road concerned. So that total monthly formal inspection shall cover 25% of highway corridor under this contract.

B.4.2.3 Procedures for Inspection The formal inspections of service quality levels on paved roads will be carried out following the procedures presented in this section. General aspects of the road are the aspects which can be evaluated by simple means, such as visual inspections and simple measurements which do not require sophisticated equipment. General aspects include the pavement, shoulders, structures, drainage system, right-of-way and road safety aspects/signaling. However, road roughness and pavement deflection are excluded. The formal monthly inspection of general aspects for each road (or road section) included in the contract is carried out based on test sections of five (5) km each. The location of the test sections is determined by the Engineer, with the only restriction that it must vary from month to month. Each five-km test section is subdivided into ten (10) segments of 500 meters each. The inspection process shall determine, for each segment of 500 meters, if non-compliance exists for any of the aspects to be verified (pavements, shoulders, structures, drainage system, right-of-way and road safety aspects/signaling). B.4.2.4 Determination of Payment Reductions The results of each formal inspection of the service quality levels and other performance criteria will be recorded by the Engineer in the form of a Memorandum. The Memorandum will state the type and location of any non-compliance detected, in particular those non-compliances already shown in the standard tables provided by the Contractor as part of his monthly statement. For each individual case of non-compliance, the Engineer will determine a date by which the Contractor must have completed the necessary measures in order to remedy the cause of the non-compliance. A follow-up site visit is therefore necessary at the date fixed by the Engineer, or soon thereafter, in order to verify that the Contractor has indeed remedied the cause of noncompliance. If at the date indicated in the Memorandum, the Contractor has not remedied the cause for noncompliance, independent of the reason given by the him for his failure to do so, the Contractor is subject to Payment Reductions in accordance with the relevant clauses of the GCC. Payment Reductions are variable over time. If the Contractor fails to remedy a cause of noncompliance for which a payment reduction has already been applied, the amount of the payment reduction increases month by month for that particular cause of non-compliance, without a ceiling being applied, until compliance is established. The calculation of the amounts of payment reductions, and the formula for their adjustment over time, is to be based on the following rules: The unit rates of payment reductions (PRu) are applicable during the first 30 days of noncompliance. If a non-compliance has not been remedied within thirty days, liquidated damages for periods beyond 30 days are calculated based on the following formula: PR = 2n PRu Considering: J = number of days of non-compliance, and J 1 n= rounded up to full number (without decimals) 30 If, following the issue of the Inspection Memorandum for a particular month, the Contractor fails within any Period of Grace to remedy the cause of any non-compliance with the Service Quality levels, as determined during the Follow-up Inspection, irrespective of any reason given by the him for such failure to do so, the Engineer will decline to certify payment for that particular noncompliant item(s) of work, for the whole extent of the Highway, in pursuance of Sub Clause

MPRDC

Section 6

PERFORMANCE BASED MANAGEMENT & MAINTENANCE OF ROADS

B.4.2.5 Measurement and Payment of Initial Rehabilitation Works: Schedule 1 The Rehabilitation Works will be priced through a schedule of rates amount included in the Contract Price. The Contractor will invoice Rehabilitation Works in Monthly Statements and in accordance with the Rehabilitation Works actually carried out as stated in the Schedule of Prices. Payment under this item will include full compensation for all labour, plant, and materials used in meeting the specified requirements. Failure to carryout the works in the time specified will result in the Contractor being liable for liquidated damages. B.4.2.6 Measurement and Payment of Improvement Works: Schedule 2 The Improvement Works will be remunerated based on the prices shown in Schedule 2. The Contractor will invoice Improvement Works as part of his Monthly Statements and in accordance with the Improvement Works actually carried out as stated in the Schedule of Prices. Payment under this item will include full compensation for all labour, and materials used in meeting the specified requirements. Failure to carryout the works in the time specified will result in the Contractor being liable for liquidated damages. B.4.2.7 No Retrospective Certification Once the Engineer has declined to certify monthly payment for non-compliant items of work or service, the Contractor shall not claim retrospective certification of payment for that particular month, even when the Contractor subsequently does achieve compliance. B.4.3 Protracted Failure to Comply In the situation where, on two successive months, the Contractor has failed to achieve the required Service Quality Level, for any item of work or service, the Engineer will have the right to employ either a third party contractor, or a State Organisation, to rectify the non-compliant work or to provide the necessary service. The costs of such activity will be charged to the Contractor and deducted from the Invoice for the particular month. The third party contractor will be, or will have been, appointed in accordance with the Employers standard procedures for procurement of services, based on open competition. Any consistent and repeated instances of the Contractor, failing to comply with the contractual requirements for maintaining Service Quality Levels, will be recorded and may be considered as contributing to a case for Termination of the Contract under Clause 59 of the GCC. B.4.4 Repair of accident damaged assets In the event of accident damage to any fixed, semi-fixed or movable asset on the site, the assets shall be repaired, rebuilt or replaced by the contractor within a reasonable time period, so that the assets shall be substantially in the same condition as they were prior to the damage. Unless the damage has been caused due to negligence by the contractor, the contractor shall be entitled for reimbursement of the cost of such repairs at mutually agreed rates.
