The following Guidelines have been developed to help the Resident Engineer and District Engineer monitor and control the amount of time and charges made by AHP to the project:
It will be the Resident Engineer's responsibility to determine the phases of work and times during which AHP Officers are needed.
The Resident Engineer will coordinate the times AHP Officers are needed (as far in advance as possible) with AHP's Area Coordinator, who will be responsible for assigning the Officers when needed.
The Resident Engineer will, if possible, schedule an entire week of AHP enforcement ahead of time.
The AHP Coordinator will contact the Resident Engineer each Friday to confirm the schedule for the following week.
The AHP units will be authorized to work entire shifts for which they are scheduled and arrive on the project. If the Resident Engineer feels shift(s) should be canceled, he will contact AHP's Area Coordinator in advance of the shift(s) so the schedule can be changed prior to AHP Units arriving for these shifts.
The AHP unit will confer daily with the Resident Engineer's personnel on the project to collaborate the time worked and for information concerning any enforcement related actions needed of the unit.
A copy of the time sheet(s) will be forwarded to the Resident Engineer's Office on a biweekly basis.
The District Engineer and Resident Engineer will receive a monthly report from AHP showing expenditures used and remaining.
EXCEEDING THE PLAN QUANTITY OR APPROVED CHANGE ORDER AMOUNT BY MORE THAN 10% WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL CHANGE ORDER AUTHORIZATION PRIOR TO ALLOWING CONTINUATION OF THE ENFORCEMENT.
(b) Marking and/or Barricading Hazards. In addition to the marking and/or
barricades required to warn and protect traffic from hazards, there are many hazardous conditions which require specific attention to provide warning and protection for pedestrians, workers, other individuals, and animals. For example: holes, trenches, etc., should be marked and/or fenced off to reduce the possibility of someone falling into them; overhead work should be provided with some type of protection to prevent injury due to falling objects; etc. There is no specific standard for this type of protection; each situation and condition must be judged independently.
(c) U. S. Mail Boxes. Subsection 107.07 of the Standard Specifications details the Contractor's responsibility with regard to mail boxes. Work involving the temporary or permanent relocation of mail boxes should be coordinated with the local U. S. Postmaster and the Mail Carrier. There are specific Postal Regulations concerning the
