Additional documentation as allowed pursuant to Article Eleven shall be available to Owner during any audit it may undertake of Contractor's records from time to time. 12.5 CONTRACTS WITH A GUARANTEED MAXIMUM PRICE 12.5.1 Each Application for Payment shall be based upon the most recent schedule of values submitted by the Contractor in accordance with the Contract Documents. The schedule of values shall allocate the entire Guaranteed Maximum Price among the various portions of the Work, except that the Contractor's Fee shall be shown as a single separate item. The schedule of values shall be prepared in such form and supported by such data to substantiate its accuracy as the Architect may require. This schedule, unless objected to by the Architect, shall be used as a basis for reviewing the Contractor's Applications for Payment. 12.5.2 Applications for Payment shall show the percentage completion of each portion of the Work as of the end of the period covered by the Application for Payment. The percentage completion shall be the lesser of (1) the percentage of that portion of the Work which has actually been completed or (2) the percentage obtained by dividing (a) the expense which has actually been incurred by the Contractor on account of that portion of the Work for which the Contractor has made or intends to make actual payment prior to the next Application for Payment by (b) the share of the Guaranteed Maximum Price allocated to that portion of the Work in the schedule of values. 12.5.3 Subject to other provisions of the Contract Documents, the amount of each progress payment shall be computed as follows: 184.108.40.206 Take that portion of the Guaranteed Maximum Price properly allocable to completed Work as determined by multiplying the percentage completion of each portion of the Work by the share of the Guaranteed Maximum Price allocated to that portion of the Work in the schedule of values. Pending final determ- ination of cost to the Owner of changes in the Work, amounts not in dispute may be included as provided in Subparagraph 7.3.7 of the General Conditions, even though the Guaranteed Maximum Price has not been adjusted by Change Order. 220.127.116.11 Add that portion of the Guaranteed Maximum Price properly allocable to materials and equipment delivered and suitably stored at the site for subsequent incorporation in the Work or, if approved in advance by the Owner, suitably stored off the site at a location agreed upon in writing. 18.104.22.168 Add the Contractor's Fee. The Contractor's Fee shall be computed upon the Cost of the Work described in the two preceding Clauses at the rate stated in Paragraph 5.1 or, if the Contractor's Fee is stated as a fixed sum in that Paragraph, shall be an amount which bears the same ratio to that fixed-sum Fee as the Cost of the Work in the two preceding Clauses bears to a reasonable estimate of the probable Cost of the Work upon its completion. 22.214.171.124 Subtract the aggregate of previous payments made by the Owner. 126.96.36.199 Subtract the shortfall, if any, indicated by the Contractor in the documentation required by Paragraph 12.4 to substantiate prior Applications for Payment, or resulting from errors subsequently discovered by the Owner's accountants in such documentation. 188.8.131.52 Subtract amounts, if any, for which the Architect has withheld or nullified a Certificate for Payment as provided in Paragraph 9.5 of the General Conditions. 12.5.4 Retainage shall be as follows: (if it is intended to retain additional amounts from progress payments to the Contractor beyond (1) the retainage from the Contractor's Fee provided in Clause 184.108.40.206, (2) the retainage from Subcontractors provided in Paragraph 12.7 below, and (3) the retainage, if any, provided by other provisions of the Contract, insert provision for such additional retainage here. Such provision, if made, should also describe any arrangement for limiting or reducing the amount retained after the Work reaches a certain state of completion.) A five percent (5%) retainage from the aggregate of cost and fee shall be withheld from each progress payment until the Work is substantially complete. At substantial completion, all retainages shall be paid to Contractor except an amount equal to twice the value of incomplete punch list work. 12.6 12.7 12.8 Except with the Owner's prior approval, the Contractor shall not make advance payments to suppliers for materials or equipment which have not been delivered and stored at the site. 12.9 In taking action on the Contractor's Applications for Payment, the Architect shall be entitled to rely on the accuracy and completeness of the information furnished by the Contractor and shall not be deemed to represent that the Architect has made a detailed examination, audit or arithmetic verification of the documentation submitted in accordance with Paragraph 12.4 or other supporting data; that the Architect has made exhaustive or continuous on-site inspections or that the Architect has made examinations to ascertain how or for what purposes the Contractor has used amounts previously paid on account of the Contract. Such examinations, audits and verifications, if required by the Owner, will be performed by the Owner's accountants acting in the sole interest of the Owner. ARTICLE 13 ---------- FINAL PAYMENT 13.1 Final payment shall be made by the Owner to the Contractor when (1) the Contract has been fully performed by the Contractor except for the Contractor's responsibility to correct defective or nonconforming Work, as provided in Subparagraph 12.2.2 of the General Conditions, and to satisfy other requirements, if any, which necessarily survive final payment: (2) a final Application for Payment and a final accounting for the Cost of the Work have been submitted by the Contractor and reviewed by the Owner's accountants; and (3) a final Certificate for Payment has then been issued by the Architect; such final payment shall be made by the Owner not more than 30 days after the issuance of the Architect's final Certificate for Payment, or as follows: 13.2 The amount of the final payment shall be calculated as follows: 13.2.1 Take the sum of the Cost of the Work substantiated by the Contractor's final accounting and the Contractor's Fee; but not more than the Guaranteed Maximum Price, if any. 13.2.2 Subtract amounts, if any, for which the Architect withholds, in whole or in part, a final Certificate for Payment as provided in Subparagraph 9.5.1 of the General Conditions or other provisions of the Contract Documents. 13.2.3 Subtract the aggregate of previous payments made by the Owner. If the aggregate of previous payments made by the Owner exceeds the amount due the Contractor, the Contractor shall reimburse the difference to the Owner. 13.3 The Owner's accountants will review and report in writing on the Contractor's final accounting within 30 days after delivery of the final accounting to the Architect by the Contractor. Based upon such Cost of the Work as the Owner's accountants report to be substantiated by the Contractor's final accounting, and provided the other conditions of Paragraph 13.1 have been met, the Architect will, within seven days after receipt of the written report of the Owner's accountants, either issue to the Owner a final Certificate for Payment with a copy to the Contractor, or notify the Contractor and Owner in writing of the Architect's reasons for withholding a certificate as provided in Subparagraph 9.5.1 of the General Conditions. The time periods stated in this Paragraph 13.3 supersede those stated in Subparagraph 9.4.1 of the General Conditions. 13.4 If the Owner's accountants report the Cost of the Work as substantiated by the Contractor's final accounting to be less than claimed by the Contractor the Contractor shall be entitled to demand arbitration of the disputed amount without a further decision of the Architect. Such demand for arbitration shall be made by the Contractor within 30 days after the Contractor's receipt of a copy of the Architect's final Certificate for Payment; failure to demand arbitration within this 30-day period shall result in the substantiated amount reported by the Owner's accountants becoming binding on the Contractor. Pending a final resolution by arbitration, the Owner shall pay the Contractor the amount certified in the Architect's final Certificate for Payment. 13.5 If, subsequent to final payment and at the Owner's request, the Contractor incurs costs described in Article 7 and not excluded by Article 8 to correct defective or nonconforming Work, the Owner shall reimburse the Contractor such costs and the Contractor's Fee applicable thereto on the same basis as if such costs had been incurred prior to final payment, but not in excess of the Guaranteed Maximum Price, if any. If the Contractor has participated in savings as in determining the net amount to be paid by the Owner to the Contractor.
