bond each in the amount of one hundred percent (100%) of the contract price.
Progress Payments: On not later than the last day of every month, the Contractor shall prepare
and submit an invoice covering the total quantities of work that have been completed from the
start of the job up to and including the last day of the preceding month together with such
supporting evidence as required by the CITY.
Retainage: The CITY shall retain a portion of the progress payments, each month, in accordance
with the following procedures:
1. Until work is 50% complete, as determined by the CITY, retainage shall be 10% of the
monthly payments claimed. The computed amount of retainage shall be deposited in a non-
interest-bearing account established by the CITY.
2. After the work is 50% complete and provided the Contractor has satisfied the CITY in
quality and timeliness of the work and provided further that there is no specific cause for
withholding additional retainage no further amount shall be withheld.

contract price plus an additional retainage based on the CITY’s estimate of the fair value of

specified amounts for each incomplete or defective item of work. As these items are
completed or corrected, they shall be paid out of the retainage until the entire project is
declared completed. The final 2% retainage shall be held, in the non-interest-bearing
account, during the two-year warranty period and released only after the CITY has accepted
