The successful lowest responsible and responsive bidder shall be required to furnish the Owner with a performance bond for 100% of the contract amount prior to the issuance of a contract to perform the work.

Provided, however, that the Owner shall promptly notify the Contractor in writing of the manner in which the amount retained, deducted, or claimed as liquidated damages was computed. It is hereby further stipulated that the Professional of Record receives hourly compensation as indicated in the Owner/Architect Agreement for continued contract administration for the Project.
