Construction notes (C-Notes) address changes in department policy or specifications that are not included in the contract. Construction notes offer optional fixes to known problems,
but are not contractual mandates. Solutions outlined in construction notes are endorsed by both the department and the industry. C-notes are released when an issue warrants a rapid response.
Typical C-Notes address items from technical specification changes to contract administration issues. Each note provides background, a problem statement,
and a solution to the issue in the form of contract change order language field staff can incorporate in their contracts. C-Notes provide advisory costs and for proposed contract changes.
No-cost solutions are generally recommended, but many situations will require renegotiation of the contract bid prices for affected items.
