|(a) The Administrator has 90 calendar days from the
date the Department approves the line item contract bid the Administrator
selected for award to complete all construction activities and submit
the Project and Administrative Draw Request, with required supporting
documentation, in the Housing Contract System for reimbursement by
the Department. The Department may grant a one-time, 30-calendar day
extension to the Project completion deadline. The Department may grant
additional extensions due to extenuating circumstances that are beyond
the Administrator's control.
(b) The Administrator must submit evidence with the
final Draw that the builder has provided a one-year warranty specifying
at a minimum that materials and equipment used by the contractor will
be new and of good quality unless otherwise required, the work will
be free from defects other than those inherent in the work as specified,
and the work will conform to the requirements of the contract documents.
(c) The Administrator must provide the Household all
warranty information for work performed by the builder and any materials
purchased for which a manufacturer or installer's warranty is included
in the price.
(d) The Department will reimburse the Administrator
in one, single payment after the Administrator's successful submission
of the Project and Administrative Draw Request per Department instructions.
Interim Draws may not be permitted. The Department reserves the right
to delay Draw approval in the event that the Household expresses dissatisfaction
with the work completed in order to resolve any outstanding conflicts
between the Household and the Administrator and its subcontractors.
