Section C-9
Contract Documents

The Joint Committee recommends that prior to the award of the contract, the Architect make available a revised set of contract documents which incorporates all changes to those documents resulting from bulletins, addenda, and all accepted alternates, issued prior to the contract date. These documents will be used as the basis for the contract and as the signature set, if required. The Supplementary General Conditions should state if this service will be provided.

The Joint Committee further recommends that when any drawing or specification page is issued to replace an existing page, all changes should be clearly indicated to identify the affected area. A key to indicate the date of the change should also be included in the document.
