The estimated removal quantities are based on previous site investigations. The contract will use unit-priced items subject to the variation in quantity clause in conjunction with an established ceiling and notification requirements.

A payment bond (100%), performance bond (100%), and liability insurance will be required prior to contract performance. An offer guarantee will be required with proposal submission.
