title
Request for approval of Change in Contract No. 2 with L.N. McKean, Inc., for phase 4 channel conveyance improvements, adding 31 calendar days and resulting in an addition of $1,680 to the contract amount. (Sims Bayou Watershed, Project ID C106-03-00-C007, Job No. 19/0364, Precinct 2).

Background and Discussion:
The purpose of this change is to extend the contract time due to added scope and inclement weather
experienced by the contractor as per the provisions in the contract. The change also adjusts pay item
quantities for a storm sewer outfall where the actual size further upstream of our work was found to be
larger necessitating us to upsize the planned outfall from 24" reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) to 36" RCP.

Expected Impact:
This RCA is required in order to complete the construction contract under original or needed revised scope. Timely execution is appreciated in order to mitigate any potential delays from the Contractor. Changes in contract result from categories identified in the District document management system.

Alternative Options:
This is an active construction contract, so there are not many alternatives to approving a change order
other than cancelling the contract which is not recommended as doing so would substantially delay the
remaining work in the construction contract.

Alignment with Goal(s):
