Progress Clause

Note: for projects containing structural steel please see Section 707 - Structural Steel Project Scheduling
Spec Book Section 102

The progress clause is intended to specify the construction timing and schedule requirements to the contractor. The progress clause is provided by the Construction Engineer at the Omissions and Errors Check (OEC) meeting. This document provides the project start and completion dates as well as any interim dates (e.g. open to traffic, staging, milestone) The contractor is required to prepare a progress schedule for submittal at the preconstruction meeting that incorporates the project dates as noted in the progress clause. Traffic requirements and liquidated damages are not to be described in detail in the progress clause. However, the progress clause must mention that failure to meet the specified date(s) will result in the assessment of liquidated damages as specified in other contract documents.

If the project involves an expedited schedule, the progress clause is to include the language referenced in Section 102.2.2.1.5 of the Construction Manual.

The Special Provision for High-Tension Cable Barrier, 12SP807(F), requires corrective action for end terminal foundation movement exceeding one inch within 12 months of final cable tensioning. This requirement dictates that high-tension cable barrier projects must have delayed final acceptance. The final acceptance date must occur after the 12 month acceptance period for the barrier and after any corrective work required of the contractor. This will ensure specification compliance and allow the completion of any corrective actions.

Progress clause documentation must also take this 12 month acceptance period into account for final project completion dates. The contractor must have time to complete the required measurements and perform any corrective action that is required. It is suggested that an additional 60 days be included on these projects in addition to the 12 month period to allow for completion of corrective action.

Critical Path Networks

Critical Path Networks are often needed to develop the Progress Clause for a project. With MDOT-designed projects, the project manager is required to develop a Critical Path Network on any project that includes an Incentive/Disincentive or Special Liquidated Damages clause. It is recommended that the project manager develop a Critical Path Network for projects with the following characteristics:

Critical Path Network Project Characteristics
1

New construction.

2

Major reconstruction or rehabilitation on an existing roadway that will severely disrupt traffic.

3

Unique or experimental work.

4

More than one construction season.

5

Complex staging (multiple stages with traffic shifts).

There may be other projects that do not meet these criteria which should have a Critical Path Network. The project manager will need to evaluate each project separately. The appropriate construction staff Engineer from the Construction Section and the Engineer assigned to the project should be consulted when determining the need for and when developing a Critical Path Network.

Preparation of a Critical Path Network is a requirement on all consultant-designed projects, regardless of the project type or complexity. The Engineer should contact the Design Consultant Coordination Unit for the project's critical path, if they have not received it, to prepare the Progress Clause.

Critical Path - Construction Time Estimates

The following are average production rates for major work items which, when multiplied or divided by the work item quantities on a project, determine the estimated time (in workdays) to complete an item. These rates should be used as guides and adjusted as necessary to reflect project specific issues and concerns or previous work history in the project area.

Determination of Work Days/Completion Date

Work Day/Completion Date Determination, Figure 102-2, shows the worksheet to be used for calculating the estimated time to complete major work items and arrive at the total work days/completion date for completion of all work items. Anticipated start dates should consider letting date and earliest possible award dates to avoid an unrealistic completion date on calendar day date projects. This worksheet should remain on file at the project office and become part of the permanently retained project files for audit purposes.

Examples of Progress Clauses

Figures 102-3 and 102-4 are examples of Progress Clauses for Work Day Projects with normal schedules (i.e. routine, non-expedited schedules, four day work week). Figure 102-5 is an example of a Progress Clause for a Calendar Date Project with a normal work week. Figure 102-6 is an example of a Calendar Date Project with an expedited schedule (i.e. five day work week). It is important to include the standard “boilerplate” language associated with expedited schedules starting with the paragraph “No extensions of time will be allowed...” and ending with the paragraph “Any extra costs incurred by the Contractor...” when preparing the Progress Clause.

Draft Boilerplate Progress Clause

The file link provided below is intended to serve as a boilerplate document for creating a progress clause. Text is to be reviewed, deleted, modified, or added before incorporation into the proposal document.

Progress Clauses with Incentive/Disincentive (I/D) or A+B Schedules

Incentive special provisions provide monetary amounts for completion of work before specified contract dates. These special provisions, if applicable, are to be referenced in the progress clause for successfully meeting dates or times, but the specific incentive requirements and monetary amounts are to be included in a unique special provision. The special provision is to be titled Special Provision for Incentive, (Route (Structure Number)), (Incentive Type). The structure number is only to be included on bridge projects and if the bridge has an associated incentive. Incentive types are: Completion of Work; Interim Completion of Work; and Approved for Traffic. Incentive projects are to include the Special Provision for Extension of Time and Extra Cost for Incentive/Disincentive Projects (12SP108(A)).

MDOT is phasing out the disincentive terminology. This language simply references failure to meet the contract incentive requirements. The disincentive language is not to be used on construction oversight documentation. Not meeting the incentive requirements will result in the application of liquidated damages and the associated pay item “Liquidated Damages, Other”.

The calculation of incentive values based on user delay costs must be documented and placed in the appropriate project folder in the ProjectWise directory.

Contractor Furnished Detailed Progress Schedule, Form 1130

A requirement of the Progress Clause (written by the Engineer and included in the project proposal) is that the low bidder(s) meet with MDOT representatives to work out a detailed Progress Schedule. The low bidder(s) submits their detailed Progress Schedule on Progress Schedule, Form 1130. This Progress Schedule is presently a requirement for contract award and is most often submitted by the Contractor for approval at the preconstruction meeting. All pages of the Progress Schedule shall be signed by all parties. If a Critical Path Network (CPN) is required or allowed under the Progress Clause, the MDOT Region Engineer will assure that the CPN meets the requirements of the Progress Clause. The CPN shall also be signed by all parties involved. If the Progress Schedule is acceptable, the Region Engineer will sign the original form and mail to MDOT Contract Services Division, Contracts Awards Section, P.O. Box 30050, Lansing, MI 48909. Timely handling and submission of this Progress Schedule is essential for the prompt award of the contract.

The Progress Schedule will include, as a minimum, the starting and completion dates for major items of work and the final project completion date specified in the bidding proposal. If an open to traffic date is specified in the bidding proposal, or if the bidding proposal specifies other controlling dates, these also should be included in the Progress Schedule. Recently, a number of Progress Schedules have been approved with “Contract Award” as the first controlling work item and with a start date that has already past or may pass before possible contract award. These Progress Schedules should not be approved as they may result in additional time and/or costs to the contract. The “Contract Award” is an action by the department and is not a work item of the contractor. It is acceptable for the contractor to list “Contract Award” as the first item on form 1130 as long as there is no date given. The first work item listed (after “Contract Award” if the contractor chooses to list this) shall contain an anticipated start date with an asterisk and “*Start work on date as noted or within 10 days of contract award” in the REMARKS section of form 1130.

On Form 1130, overlapping dates or workdays for start complete of the controlling items may be allowed if sufficient justification is included in the submitted Contractor's Progress Schedule. There can be the same start date for completing an item and starting the next.

On workday projects, there has to be a statement on Form 1130 as to when the Contractor will start work (e.g. "Start work within 10 days of award" or "Start by June 16, 1998").

The completion date (day) for the final controlling item should match the contract completion date (day).

The named Subcontractor(s) for specialty and/or designated items (if designated in the proposal) which materially affect the work schedule will be required to sign the Progress Schedule to indicate their approval of the scheduled dates of work set forth in the Progress Schedule.

If the proposal Progress Clause requires that a Critical Path Network be submitted by the Contractor, the Critical Path should be reviewed by the Engineer, approved and dated by the Contractor and the Region Engineer, and attached to the Progress Schedule, Form 1130, before submittal to the Construction Section's Construction Management Unit.

Since the detailed Progress Schedule is part of the contract documents, no changes can be made on the completed form without prior signatories dating and initialing the change. Figure 102-7 is an example of a completed Progress Schedule for a calendar date project. Figure 102-8 is an example of a completed Progress Schedule for a work day project.
