spills will be reported to the TPOC immediately.
17. Contract Discrepancy Report (CDR).
A CDR is a formal document used by the Government to process defects in services. As initially issued to the
Contractor, the CDR describes the discrepancy or problem. The CDR will be discussed with the Contractor or his
representative when it is issued. The Contractor will provide his written response on the CDR form within 24
hours of issuance. The Contractor's response must:
Identify the cause and corrective action taken, and Identify Contractor action to prevent recurrence.
Upon finalization of the CDR, the Contractor and the TPOC must sign the form. The Contractor will be given a
copy of the completed form. Should the Contractor not concur with any decision, etc., the Contractor may so state,
in writing, and request a final decision by the Contracting Officer. The Contracting Officer monitors all CDR's
issued, and CDR's are the principle evidence used by the Contracting Officer in determining Government contract
actions such as termination or decision not to exercise options.
The Contractor is required to attend a pre-work meeting to be scheduled by the TPOC. The Contractor or his
authorized representative will report each Month with the schedule and location determined by the TPOC to discuss
contract work items. Specific topics of discussion at the Monthly meetings may include issuing inspections, quality
control, and upcoming work. If a CDR is issued, mutual effort will be made to resolve any and all problems
identified to preclude their recurrence. The TPOC may alter this reporting schedule, or change the reporting method,
time, or place if mutually agreeable between the TPOC and the Contractor.
A tour of the work site will be conducted following the discussions. It is recommended that the Contractor's on-site
representative or superintendent also attend this meeting. During the pre-work conference, the Contractor will also
provide any required submittals not previously submitted.
19. Quality Control.
The Contractor will have a Quality Control program to assure the requirements of the contract are provided as
specified. The primary purpose of Quality Control is to identify and correct deficiencies in the quality of services
performed before the level of performance is unacceptable.

The Contractor may use any or all portions of this plan to prepare a plan of his own. A signed plan, including
Contractor specific information, will be provided to the Contracting Officer and the TPOC, and accepted, prior to
the Pre-Work Conference. If changes to this program occur, updated copies will be provided to the Contracting
Officer and TPOC.
Failure to provide appropriate Quality Control may result in issuance of a CDR, and/or termination of the contract.
20. Quality Assurance.
The Government will monitor the Contractor's performance in each functional area under this contract and reserves
the rights to use whatever additional surveillance procedures are deemed appropriate. The Government will keep a
record of all complaints received by the public concerning Contractor performance. Upon receipt of a written
complaint by the public, the Government will attempt to verify the complaint and furnish the Contractor a copy of
the findings. Should the Government verification reveal a nonperformance by the Contractor, a CDR may be issued.
A Government employee will not be considered an Inspector unless he identifies himself as such to the Contractor,
the Contractor Representative, or Quality Control Inspector. No Inspector is authorized to change any provision of
the specifications without written authorization of the Contracting Officer nor will the presence or absence of an
inspector relieve the Contractor from any requirements of the Contract.
If the Contractor fails to perform, or if performance in any area is judged unsatisfactory by the TPOC, the
Government will take corrective action. If any of the services do not conform to contract requirements, the
Government may require the Contractor to perform the services again in conformity with contract requirements, at

New/Repair Asphalt Construction Procedures
a. Grades shall be established by the contractor and the grade stakes shall be set to the desired section by the
contractor. In establishing the grades due allowances shall be made for existing improvements, proper drainage, and
b. Pay careful consideration to seasonal and weather limitations per Indiana standards. All debris, vegetation, or
other perishable materials shall be removed from the job site. Existing pavement areas specified to be replaced shall be
saw cut, excavated, and repaired full depth IAW UFC 3-270-01, Asphalt Maintenance and Repair, 15 Mar 2001. The
site to be paved shall be graded to the required section and all excess material removed from the location of the work.
All soft and yielding material and other portions of subgrade which will not compact readily when rolled or taped shall
be removed and replaced with suitable material, placed and compacted. The crushed limestone subbase (4"-#2, 4"-
DGA) shall be thoroughly compacted to not less than 95% with suitable equipment so as to have uniform density at
moisture contents of not less than standard optimum (AASHO-T98) The entire surface of the subbase after compaction
shall be hard, uniform, smooth, and true to grade and cross section.
c. On the prepared crushed limestone subbase (4"-#2, 4"-DGA) the asphalt base shall be laid in a single course
to a compacted thickness of 3.5 inches. Placing of the asphalt surface course shall follow and be laid in a single course
to a compacted thickness of 1.5 inches. The asphalt shall be spread and struck off with a paver. Any irregularities in the
surface of the pavement course shall be corrected directly behind the paver. Excess material forming high spots shall be
removed with a shovel or a lute. Indented areas shall be filled with hot mix and smoothed with a lute or the edge of a
shovel being pulled over the surface. Casting of mix over such areas shall not be permitted. If it is impractical to use a
paver or spread box in areas of 1000 sq.yd. or less asphalt base and surface courses may be spread and finished by
hand. Wood or steel forms, rigidly supported to assure correct grade and cross section, may be used. Placing by hand
shall be performed carefully to avoid segregation of the mix. Broadcasting of the material shall not be permitted. Any
lumps that do not break down readily shall be removed. Rolling shall start as soon as the hot mix material can be
compacted without displacement. Rolling shall continue until thoroughly compacted and all roller marks have
disappeared. In areas too small for the roller a vibrating plate compacter or hand tamper shall be used to achieve
thorough compaction. The surface of the completed work, when tested with a ten foot straightedge, shall not contain
irregularities in excess of ¼ inch.
d. A tack coat shall be applied on each layer as specified by INDOT Standard Specifications, current edition.
e. Transporting. The hot-mix asphalt shall be transported from the mixing plant to the site in clean, tight
vehicles. Deliveries shall be scheduled so that placing and compacting of mixture is uniform with minimum stopping
and starting of the paver. Adequate artificial lighting shall be provided for night placements. Hauling over freshly
placed material will not be permitted until the material has been compacted as specified, and allowed to cool to 140
degrees F. To deliver mix to the paver, the Contractor shall use a material transfer vehicle which shall be operated to
produce continuous forward motion of the paver.
f. Placing. The mix shall be placed and compacted at a temperature suitable for obtaining density, surface
smoothness, and other specified requirements. Upon arrival, the mixture shall be placed to the full width by an asphalt
paver; it shall be struck off in a uniform layer of such depth that, when the work is completed, it shall have the required
thickness and conform to the grade and contour indicated. The speed of the paver shall be regulated to eliminate
pulling and tearing of the asphalt mat. Unless otherwise permitted, placement of the mixture shall begin along the
centerline of a crowned section or on the high side of areas with a one-way slope.
Page 19 of 139
The mixture shall be placed in consecutive adjacent strips having a minimum width of 10 feet. The longitudinal joint
in one course shall offset the longitudinal joint in the course immediately below by at least 1 foot; however, the joint in
the surface course shall be at the centerline of the pavement. Transverse joints in one course shall be offset by at least
10 feet from transverse joints in the previous course. Transverse joints in adjacent lanes shall be offset a minimum of
10 feet. On isolated areas where irregularities or unavoidable obstacles make the use of mechanical spreading and
finishing equipment impractical, the mixture may be spread and luted by hand tools.
g. Compaction of the mixture. After placing, the mixture shall be thoroughly and uniformly compacted by
rolling. The surface shall be compacted as soon as possible without causing displacement, cracking or shoving. The
sequence of rolling operations and the type of rollers used shall be at the discretion of the Contractor. The speed of the
roller shall, at all times, be sufficiently slow to avoid displacement of the hot mixture and be effective in compaction.
Any displacement occurring as a result of reversing the direction of the roller, or from any other cause, shall be
corrected at once. Sufficient rollers shall be furnished to handle the output of the plant. Rolling shall continue until the
surface is of uniform texture, true to grade and cross section, and the required field density is obtained. To prevent
adhesion of the mixture to the roller, the wheels shall be kept properly moistened but excessive water will not be
permitted. In areas not accessible to the roller, the mixture shall be thoroughly compacted with hand tampers. Any
mixture that becomes loose and broken, mixed with dirt, contains check-cracking, or is in any way defective shall be
removed full depth, replaced with fresh hot mixture and immediately compacted to conform to the surrounding area.
This work shall be done at the Contractor's expense. Skin patching will not be allowed.
h. Joints. The formation of joints shall be made ensuring a continuous bond between the courses and to obtain
the required density. All joints shall have the same texture as other sections of the course and meet the requirements
for smoothness and grade.
i. Transverse Joints. The roller shall not pass over the unprotected end of the freshly laid mixture, except when
necessary to from a transverse joint. When necessary to form a transverse joint, it shall be made by means of placing a
bulkhead or by tapering the course. The tapered edge shall be cut back to its full depth and width on a straight line to
expose a vertical face prior to placing material at the joint. The cutback material shall be removed from the project. In
both methods, al contact surfaces shall be given a light tack coat of asphalt material before placing any fresh mixture
against the joint.
j. Longitudinal Joints. Longitudinal joints which are irregular, damaged, uncompacted, cold (less than 175
degrees F at the time of placing adjacent lanes), or otherwise defective, shall be cut back a maximum of 2 inches from
the top of the course with a cutting wheel to expose a clean, sound vertical surface for the full depth of the course. All
cutback material shall be removed from the project. All contact surfaces shall be given a light tack coat of asphalt
material prior to placing any fresh mixture against the joint. The Contractor will be allowed to use an alternate method
if it can be demonstrated that density, smoothness, and texture can be met.
k. The contractor shall furnish, to the COR for test and analysis, representative samples of materials to be used in
the work including the mixture of asphalt. The contractor shall provide certification that material furnished is in
accordance with the contract. Sampling and testing shall be in accordance with the latest rev. of the American
Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) or the ASTM standard procedures for sampling
and testing the materials being used in the project.
l. Material (DGA crushed limestone gravel) shall be added to road shoulders in the new/repaired pavement areas
per industry standards to ensure no steep drop-offs are present following construction.
