1. The Bidder's attention is called to the "Equal Opportunity Clause" and the "Standard Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Construction Contract Specifications" set forth within the supplementary provisions. The successful Bidder shall not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The Contractor will take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

2. The goals and timetables for minority and female participation, expressed in percentage terms for the contractor's aggregate workforce in each trade on all construction work in the covered area (Kandiyohi County, Minnesota) are as follows:

Kandiyohi County:

Goals for Goals For

Minority Participation Female Participation

in Each Trade In Each Trade

in Percent (%) in Percent (%)

Federal Federal

Requirements - 2.2 Requirements - 6.9

State State

Requirements - 3.0 Requirements - 6.0

These goals are applicable to all the contractors' construction work (whether or not it is Federal, or Federally assisted) performed in the covered area. If the contractor performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, it shall apply the goals established for such geographical area where the work is actually performed. With regard to this second area, the contractor also is subject to the goals for both its Federally involved and non-federally involved construction.

The contractor's compliance with the executive order and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4 and Minnesota Rules, Part 5000.3520 shall be based on its implementation of the Equal Opportunity Clause, specific affirmative action obligations required by the specifications set forth in 41 CFR 60-4.3 (a) and Minnesota Rules, Part 5000.3540, and its efforts to meet the goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length of the contract, and in each trade, and the contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from contractor to contractor or from project to project for the sole purpose of meeting the contractor's goals shall be a violation of the contract, the executive order, the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4, and Minnesota Rules, Part 5000.3520. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the total work hours performed.

3. The contractor shall provide written notification to the Director, OFCCP, and the Compliance Division of the Minnesota Department of Human Rights, within ten working days of award of any construction subcontract (in excess of $10,000 for OFCCP reporting) at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from the solicitation. The notification shall list the name, address and telephone number of the subcontractor; employer identification number of the subcontractors; estimated dollar amount of the subcontract; estimated starting and completion dates of the subcontract; and the geographical area in which the subcontract is to be performed.

4. As used in this notice, and in the contract resulting from this solicitation, the "covered area" is Kandiyohi County, MN.


Each proposal must be accompanied by a bid guaranty in the amount of five (5) percent of the total amount of the bid. The bid guaranty may be by certified check or bid bond made payable to City of Willmar.
