For delays for any reason beyond the contractor’s control, other than those caused by suspension of the work, the contractor may be granted an extension of the contract time. This citation, however, gives the contractor no right or claim to additional compensation unless the contract speciﬁcally provides for such compensation. Annulment and Default of Contract. Provision is made for terminating the contract as follows: For annulment: A public ofﬁceholder acting in the public interest or a national or state agency ordering a work stoppage may result in the owner’s annulment of a contract.
Damage Claims. Indemniﬁcation and saveharmless provisions are invoked to protect owners and their agents. The protection extends to suits and costs of every kind and description and all damages to which they may be subjected by reason of injury to person or property of others resulting from the performance of the contract work or through negligence of the contractor, use of improper or defective machinery, implements, or appliances, or any act or omission on the part of the contractor or contractor’s agents or employees.
Requirements peculiar to the nature of the work are added, as necessary. Parts of the general provisions that pertain to legal requirements inherent in a public agency’s corporate existence naturally are not included in a contract for privately owned construction. For example, most public-agency charters require protection with performance and payment bonds, while private owners can contract for work without any bonds. This saves cost for the private owner but puts that owner at greater risk in the event the contractor fails to perform or pay suppliers, workers, or subcontractors.
