2019 NORTH APRON LIGHTING PROJECT Project No. 003-2019

Sealed bids for airfield improvements to be performed at the Golden Triangle Regional Airport will be received at the Airport by Michael Hainsey, Executive Director of the Golden Triangle Regional Airport Authority (the Owner), until 1:00 p.m. (Central Daylight Time) on the 23rd of August, 2019, at which time and place they will be publicly opened and read aloud.

Work will consist of the furnishing and installation of apron lighting pole and equipment that will illuminate the north apron at the airport. The materials will include four metal light poles with LED fixtures; the poles will be set atop reinforced concrete foundations. Also, necessary equipment to power the lights will be required. All work performed shall be in exact accordance with the technical specifications (with drawings included in the specifications manual), proposals and special provisions, all under the direct supervision and to the entire satisfaction of the Owner and in accordance with the laws of the State of Mississippi.

Contractors must be qualified under Mississippi Law and be registered with the State of Mississippi as a licensed general contractor capable of performing the required work. No contract shall be issued or awarded to any contractor who does not have a current certificate of responsibility issued by the State of Mississippi in effect on the date of the bid opening.

Non-resident contractors bidding on this project shall be required to have their Mississippi registration complete and a current certificate of responsibility number issued by the State of Mississippi in effect on the day of the bid opening. Any bid submitted in violation of this requirement shall be rejected.

Additional information may be found in Title 31 (Public Business, Bonds and Obligations) of the 2015
Mississippi Code. One of several public links to that website is as follows:

All work will be performed on the east side of the north apron, within the secured perimeter of the airfield; therefore, FAA guidelines for work in Airport Operational Areas and in secured airfield areas will apply to this project. Also, public safety is of utmost concern and the contractor shall be familiar with traffic control in work zones where public interface will occur. Temporary signage, barricades, markings, etc. will comply with guidelines set forth in the federal Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, latest edition.

A pre-bid conference for the project is planned for August 1, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. in the Airport Authority conference room, located at the Airport. While attendance is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended that prospective bidders attend the pre-bid conference(s).
