When indicated on the cover page of the invitation to bid, this contract calls for the construction of a "public work," within the meaning of the Illinois Prevailing Wage Act, 820 ILCS 130/.01 et seq. ("the Act"). The Act requires awarded vendors and subcontractors to pay laborers, workers, and mechanics performing services on public works projects no less than the "prevailing rate of wages" (hourly cash wages plus fringe benefits) in the county where the work is performed. Prevailing wage rates are determined by the Illinois Department of Labor and posted on the Department’s website at: https://www2.illinois.gov/idol/Laws-Rules/CONMED/Pages/Rates.aspx .

(b) When applicable, all awarded vendors and subcontractors rendering services under this contract must comply with all requirements of the Act, including but not limited to all wage, notice, recordkeeping, and filing of certified payroll requirements. (c) Under the Act, it is mandatory upon Vendor to insert into each subcontract a written stipulation to the effect that not less than the prevailing rate of wages shall be paid to all laborers, workers and mechanics performing work under this contract. It is also the Vendor’s responsibility under the Act to verify and pay current wage rates, as the Department may change them from time to time. (d) It is Vendor’s obligation to understand what the Act requires, and to comply accordingly. Failure on the part of the City to provide proper written notice regarding the applicability of the Prevailing Wage Act does not relieve Vendor or subcontractors of the obligation to comply with the Act when applicable, nor does it relieve them of their obligation to pay back wages when owed. (e) Vendor and all subcontractors shall make all records required under the Prevailing Wage Act available for inspection, copying, or transcription by authorized representatives of the City of Rockford or Department of Labor. Vendor shall further permit such representatives to interview employees during working hours on the job. If Vendor or subcontractor fails to submit the required records or make them available, the City may take such action as may be necessary to cause the suspension of any further payment, advance, or guarantee of funds. Furthermore, failure to submit the required records upon request may be grounds for debarment action. 27. Substance Abuse Prevention. Before Vendor commences work on a public works project, it must have in place a written program which meets or exceeds the program requirements in the Substance Abuse Prevention on Public Works Projects Act (820 ILCS 265/1 et seq.), to be filed with the City and made available to the general public, for prevention of substance abuse among its employees. This program must include pre-hire, random, reasonable suspicion, and post-accident drug and alcohol testing, as required by the Substance Abuse Prevention on Public Works Projects Act. 26. Certified Payroll. All Certified Payroll reports required to be submitted under the Prevailing Wage Act, 820ILCS 130, as directed by the State of Illinois (https://www2.illinois.gov/idol/Laws-Rules/CONMED/Pages/Prevailing-Wage-Portal.aspx). No paper copies or non-conforming Certified Payroll reports will be accepted. A copy of proof of submission, including the reported wage information, must be submitted to the City with the request for payment. The City reserves the right to withhold payment due to the awarded vendor until the vendor complies with this or any other provision of the Act.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Vendor shall indemnify and hold harmless the City, its officers, representatives, elected and appointed officials, agents, and employees from and against all claims, damages, losses and expenses, including but not limited to attorney's fees, arising out of or resulting from Vendor's performance of work under this agreement, and indemnifies and agrees to defend and hold harmless the City against any and all losses, claims, damages, and expenses arising from the work performed hereunder of the erection, construction, placement, or operation of any scaffold, hoist, crane, stay, ladder, support, or other mechanical contrivance in connection with such work including but not limited to losses, claims, damages, and expenses arising pursuant to claims asserted against the City pursuant to theories premised upon sections 343 and 414 of the Restatement (Second) of Torts.

Cyclops Welding Corp., 146 Ill.2d 155, 585 N.E.2d 1023 (1991) in Illinois. Further, Vendor agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all safety laws applicable to the work performed hereunder, including but not limited to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (29 USC Ch. 15 §651 et. seq.) and the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (40 USC Ch. 37 §3701 et seq.) and all standards and regulations which have been or shall be promulgated by the agencies which administer the Acts.

Any bidder requesting application of the local bidder adjustment shall acknowledge and agree to the potential of the reduction in their overall bid at the time of its bid submission. Should a bidder requesting the local business adjustment be declared the lowest bidder and thereafter decline to be awarded the project, that bidder shall be prohibited from requesting the application of a local business adjustment for a period of one year. In instances where more than one local bidder requests local business adjustment, the adjustment will be applied to the next lowest local bidder only, however, if the next lowest bidder did not request the adjustment, then the local bidder who did elect would get the adjustment and award.
