On page 6 of the pdf, the bid specifies that the Louisiana Contractor's License required for this project is: Municipal and Public Works Construction. Would purchaser consider expanding this requirement to include bidders with the license: Controls for Mechanical Work; Cranes, Crane Rail Systems, Roof Cars & Trolleys; Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems.

On page 8 of the pdf, the listing states that both a 100% performance bond and a 100% payment bond are required. As these bonds overlap, would the purchaser consider reducing this burden, either in terms of the value of the bond or by eliminating the requirement for one of the bonds?

On page 13 of the bid package, reference is made to a Special Warranty for repair or replacement of items. Can the purchaser confirm that the Special Warranty will not apply to this project?
