RFI Questions for Project # 630A4-24-411- Patient Renovate D2 Swing Space (St Albans). Page 2 of 4 Per RFI responses, Will the VA be providing change orders to the contractor if the existing plumbing system does not work, or should a non-functional plumbing system be incorporated into the contractor's price?

Sargent Lever Set, 6-pin Single Plug LG Keyway Per RFI 21, 78, 82, and 89, RFI 21 outlines a total of 1600 SF of ACT to be replaced.

RFI 78 says to use 75 ceiling tiles in that area, RFI 82 says to use five ceiling tiles, and RFI 89 says to use 25 ceiling tiles. This gives us over 100 ceiling tiles already and this only covers three areas of the ward. What is the total number of ACT to be replaced? There will be approximately 200 ceiling tiles to replace and/or install. The contractor is to provide unit prices for ACT, ceramic tiles, and VCT tiles.

RFI # 3 For the Contractor to know if there is enough space to add AC and TV outlets, they would have to perform the work. Will there be a change order if the contractor has to add new runs to the breaker panel for the new AC window units? Also, RFI # 34, VA, states that the contractor will need to add lines as needed. Will there be a change order if the lines need to be added? The contractor won t be able to tell unless they check the wiring while working on it.

RFI #20 States that the upgrade to the electrical system is not part of the scope, but RFI # 68 states ALL ELECTRICAL PANELS WILL NEED TO BE UPDATED! and RFI # 69 states that the maximum number of electrical panels to be replaced is 4. So, is the contractor upgrading the panels and nothing else? The scope includes an upgrade of 4 electrical panels.

Will there be another change order? The contractor is responsible for making repairs and unclogging the lines. The contractor is not responsible for the entire new system.
