3.      From Finance (Change orders) Section of Committee of the Whole Report ( April 4, 2002 meeting)

        FA Note: Walter Korpan has confirmed that it is the District procedure to have only the Finance Committee (currently convened as the Committee of the Whole) approve change orders. Consequently, change orders have not been previously brought for Panel consideration until the disbursement stage. This has not been a major concern because there have been only small change orders since the Panel’s inception and no new construction has been started except for the High School Addition. However, with more construction projects planned and with prior construction nearing the closeout stage, the Financial Administrator has recommended that all change orders be brought for Board and Panel approval. Change orders represent contract revisions or addenda. As all contracts or contractual commitments of District funds require Panel approval, change orders also require Panel approval.

a.       Approval of change order for Murphy School Paving & Drainage Project in the amount of $136,348.00 (vendor: Maneval Construction; original contract amount: $533,420 with 1 change order $105,429.82; construction budget $700,000.00) 

FA Recommendation:  Inquire from architect for rationale supporting large additional change order

    Panel Action: No action taken

b.      Approval of change order for High School Addition in the amount of $6,291.00 (vendor: Maneval Construction; original contract amount: $2,059,000) 

FA Recommendation:  Approve after inquiry from architect rationale for change order

      Panel Action: No action taken

c.       Approval of change order for Miscellaneous Improvements Projects in the amount of ($5,663.00) (vendor: Boller Construction; original contract amount: $1,267,900 with 1 change order of $16,578) 

FA Recommendation:  Approve

      Panel Action: No action taken

d.      Approval of change order for High School Addition in the amount of $110,000.00 (vendor: R.J. Ridolfi; construction budget $110,000.00)
