"the Design-Builder, before submitting a Proposal, will be responsible for obtaining additional or supplementary examinations, investigations, explorations, tests, studies and data concerning conditions (surface, subsurface and underground utilities) at or contiguous to the Site or otherwise, which may affect cost, progress, performance or furnishing of the Work, or which relate to any aspect of the means, methods, techniques, sequences or procedures of construction to be employed by the Proposer and safety precautions and programs incident thereto, or which the Proposer deems necessary to determine its Proposal for performing and furnishing the Work in accordance with the time, price and other terms and conditions of the Contract Documents".

NO. 

 

Esto significa que cada proponente es responsable, de entender necesario y a su costo, realizar evaluaciones o trabajos previo a realizar su propuesta. No es requerido que el proponente realice algún tipo de estudio, evaluación o proceso; o incurrir en gastos de estudios y procesos costosos, si el proponente entiende que no lo necesita para generar su propuesta. Es opcional de cada proponente realizar estudios de cualquier tipo. Es opcional que cada proponente haga cualesquiera inversiones de tiempo, recurso humano y costos de cualquier índole. Cada proponente es libre de trabajar su propuesta según sus necesidades y procesos. 

 

Un ejemplo sería; si un proponente entiende que para estimar costos de electricidad necesita contratar un perito electricista o un ingeniero electricista, ello es estrictamente responsabilidad del proponente. Igualmente, cualesquiera costos relacionados a ello son estricta responsabilidad del proponente. 

 

 

El subrecipiente Hogar de Ayuda El Refugio, Inc. no costeará ni pagará ningún tipo de estudio, ni es responsable de las necesidades particulares de cada proponente que así necesite para preparar su propuesta de costos. La propuesta no requiere preparación de planos de ninguna índole.

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria caused significant damage to the structure and infrastructure of family homes, businesses, and government facilities, displacing thousands of island residents from their homes and jobs. To this end, housing solutions are needed to address the unmet need of vulnerable populations. Under the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018, and the Disaster Relief Requirements Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2017, enacted on September 8, 2017 (Pub. L. 115-56), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) allocated $1.5 billion for disaster recovery assistance to the Government of Puerto Rico under the CDBG-DR. These funds are intended to provide financial services to address unmet needs that arise and are not covered by other sources of financial aid. On February 9, 2018, a Notice was published in the Federal Register, Vol. 83, No. 28 (83 FR 5844), which allocated $1.5 billion for disaster recovery assistance to the Government of Puerto Rico.

L. 115-123), HUD allocated an additional $8.22 billion for disaster recovery assistance to the Government of Puerto Rico under CDBG-DR. Under a letter dated February 23, 2018, sent by the former Governor of Puerto Rico to the Honorable Benjamin Carson, Secretary of HUD, PRDOH is the government agency designated as the concessionaire of the CDBG-DR funds allocated to the Government of Puerto Rico. On August 14, 2018, a Notice was published in the Federal Register Vol. 83, No. 157, (83 FR 40314) that made an additional allocation to Puerto Rico of $8.22 billion for recovery. On September 20, 2018, the Governor of Puerto Rico and the HUD Secretary signed the Grant Agreement.
