Infrastructure Ontario (IO) has issued an addendum to its spring Request for Proposals (RFP) for the annual refresh of its Vendor of Record (VOR) list for architectural and interior design services, advising that the closing has been postponed to Friday, September 7. The OAA will be meeting with IO representatives on Wednesday, August 8 in an effort to reach a resolution to the ongoing insurability issues around clause 8.9 of IO’s Supplementary Conditions to Document 600-2013.
It is the OAA’s understanding the RFP conditions and requirements (including IO’s supplementary conditions to OAA 600-2013) remain unchanged, except for changes to A17 ‘interest,’ new definitions added for substantial performance and the Construction Act, an update to 10.3, reference to deletion of Construction Lien Act, invoicing clarification on page 25, as well as new language under record drawings GC14 and construction liens GC 15.
For additional information, members can refer to the OAA Special News Bulletin
issued on July 24, 2017. Pro-Demnity Insurance Company also issued a Bulletin
to policyholders regarding the implications of IO’s supplementary conditions in November 2017.
