The responses to bidder's inquiries, unless incorporated into a formal addendem to the contract, are not a part of the contract and are provided for the bidder's convenience only. In some instances, the question and answer may represent a summary of the matters discussed rather than a word-for-word recitation. The availability or use of information provided in the responses to bidder's inquiries is not to be construed in any way as a waiver of the provisions of Section 2-1.03 of the Standard Specifications or any other provision of the contract, the plans, Standard Specifications or Special Provisions, nor to excuse the contractor from full compliance with those contract requirements. Bidders are cautioned that subsequent responses or contract addenda may affect or vary a response previously given.
Q1) I can't find the number of conductors or their gauge for the Signal Interconnect Cable. I'm probably looking right at it, just don't see it.
A1) The Special Provisions, Section 10-3.06, para 2 states, "Signal Interconnect Cable (SIC) shall be the 3-pair type." The 2006 Standard Specifications, Section 86-2.08E gives the specifications for the SIC cable (3-pair) type.
