    Asphalt Cement Price Adjustment Guidelines for Completing the Inspector’s Report

    (627-39)

    This document provides guidelines and instructions for properly completing the Inspector’s Report (627-39) for Asphalt Cement Price Adjustment (ACPA); the adjustment only applies to “let” contracts let since October 2005 that contain the Special Provision - Asphalt Cement Price Adjustment (unless added or changed by SA). This only applies to projects with HMA (Hot Mix Asphalt) and goes into effect either:

    After 180 days from the Letting Date for contracts that have the special provision with the 50% maximum adjustment or

    Goes into effect at beginning of project for contract that have the special provision with the 75% maximum adjustment

    ****Verify type of adjustment in the contract before paying on adjustment****

    Only the approved electronic version of the form “Asphalt Cement Price Adjustment (ACPA) Inspector Report, 627-39” shall be used. No other version of this form shall be used and will not be accepted by the Contract Auditor for payment and project record documentation. The 627-39 (ACPA) contains three pages; the first page is the main sheet this is where all the information for the month will be documented. The second and third sheets are identical; these sheets will be used to make corrections or adjustments to previous reports, as needed.

    The instructions below are for completing the 627-39 form for the Asphalt Price Adjustment.

    (Only applies to contracts containing 50% adjustment) An ACPA Inspector’s Report shall be completed early on in the project to determine the “begin adjustment date”. Place the letting date on the appropriate line and the date the report is done, once done this will give the date the Price Adjustment starts. The remainder of the form does not need to be completed. Print and place in the LIN folder for this item. Once the adjustment date has been reached, monthly ACPA inspector’s reports shall be done monthly when asphalt is placed whether an adjustment is required or not. This shall be done monthly to keep accurate records of the index numbers for project documentation purposes. The ACPA (627-39) form is a generic form; it can be used for English or Metric projects. The index numbers will be either English ($/ton) or Metric ($/MG) and will be listed on OMR’s website for the index number (link on the form). The adjustment LIN should already be on the Construction Report when you receive CR # 1. It should appear before all the Asphalt Mix Items unless the contract has both 400 (virgin) and 402 (rap) mixes in the contract then there will be two LIN one before the 400 items and one before the 402 items. When completing the report it will be necessary to complete both depending on the type of mix being placed during the month. Combining the 400 and 402 items on one adjustment report will not be allowed, it must be separated. If the adjustment line(s) are not shown on the Construction Report in CSI, contact Samone McNeil-Chapman @ (404) 656-5325 to have the item(s) added. Do not add the LIN by add-on sheet unless instructed to do so by someone from the Office of Contract Administration - payment section.

    REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION TO BE INCLUDED WITH THE MONTHLY INSPECTOR’S REPORT: The following shall be included when completing the 627, (other documentation may be required by the auditor).

    1) A copy of the price index from OMR’s website shall be printed monthly and attached to the report.

    The only differences between the 50% and 75% forms are as follows:

    1. Contract let between October 2005 and August 2006 possibly contains the 50% max adjustment provided the project duration was more than 6 months.

    2. Adjustment on 50% contracts begins after 180 days form the date of letting. 3. Contracts let after August 2006 possibly contain the 75% max adjustment provided the project has duration of

    more than 366 days. 4. Adjustment on 75% contracts begins at start of project (there is no waiting period) 5% rule still applies.

    Automatically calculates the number of days between Letting Date (B) and Today’s Date (A) once they are filled in.

    D. Price Adjustment Date Begins: (Only for 50% Adjustment Project) Gives the date adjustment will come into effect (181

    st day), the date automatically populates once Letting Date (B)

    placed. E. Enter APL: The Monthly Asphalt Cement Price for the month in which the project was let; this can be found on OMR’s webpage (link on inspector’s report). The Monthly Asphalt Cement Price will be posted the Friday following the monthly Letting Date. APL is determined based on the month of letting and will never change for that contract. F. Enter APM:

    The Monthly Asphalt Cement Price for the month the asphalt is placed; this can be found on OMR’s webpage (link on inspector’s report). The Monthly Asphalt Cement Price will be posted the Friday following the monthly Letting Date.

    G. Monthly Asphalt Cement Price Index Link: This is a link to the “Monthly Asphalt Cement Price Index” on the Office of Materials and Research webpage. The Index shall be printed monthly and attached to the inspectors report. H. Information Line: This gives important information depending on index numbers and dates places.

    - STOP TIME REQUIREMENT NOT MET - NO ADJUSTMENT: WITHIN 5% NO ADJUSTMENT REQUIRED - EXCEEDS 50% MAX LIMIT INCREASE ADJUSTMENT AT 50% - +/- (x) % INCREASE/DECREASE ADJUSTMENT

    I. L.I.N.: Enter Line Item Number as shown on construction report for asphalt mix. (xxxx). J. Mix Type:

    Type of Asphalt mix placed (dropdown list). If leveling, show type of mix used for the leveling; may have to show on multiple lines if more than one type of mix is being used for leveling. Asphalt tickets need to show type of mix being used for leveling, if not on tickets get Asphalt Contractor to place on tickets. Show “leveling” in the Remarks Line on rt. side of inspector’s sheet. Generic mix types have been included (i.e.: 9.5 mm, 12.5 mm, 19 mm, 25 mm) incase the specific type is not in the dropdown list.

    O. TMT: Total Monthly Tonnage of asphalt cement computed based on the Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete of the various types per ton (megagram) certified for payment. P. Monthly Price Adjustments ($):

    Gives the total adjustment amount ($) for the area above; it will give informational messages if adjustment requirements are not met.

    Q. Audit Corrections or Adjustments:

    If placing asphalt at night and it’s the last day of the month the tickets must be marked and separated once the time reaches 12:01 a.m. for the new month; only applies to asphalt that is in-place, not from the batch time on the tickets. Since this asphalt is placed during a new month it will be adjusted at a different APM even if it was placed with mix from the previous month. The asphalt should be paid for normally but the AC adjustment cannot be made until the end of the month.
