1315 - Summary/Objective
131601 - I asked Sarah for the as-builts for Voith contract. She indicated
131602 - these have not been supplied by either Sletten or Voith.
131604 - Sarah recalled DNRC has asked Tudor to furnish these documents, but
131605 - Tudor has not done so.
131607 - I suggested DNRC could demand these materials directly from the
131608 - contractors, as part of contract close out, and explained that project
131609 - as-builts could be important to DNRC, including to resolve pending
131610 - contract disputes.
131612 - ..
1319 - Tudor Contract Performance
132001 - Sarah's has indicated that Tudor has not performed a considerable
132002 - portion of project closeout, including:
132004 - Furnish construction as-builts.
132006 - Furnish support information for contract close-out recommendations
132007 - (in particular Clyde's 891005 letter).
132009 - Manage on behalf of DNRC a number of repairs needed by Voith over
132010 - the past two years.
132012 - Maintain project records insufficient order to enable DNRC to
132013 - assume management of the completed work.
132015 - Construct a plant that can be run from DNRC offices in Helena with
132016 - minimal on-site staffing.
132019 - ..
132020 - Plant Conform to Contract Requirements
132022 - I asked Sarah if, in light of Tudor's failure to perform engineering
132023 - management, which she cites above, ref SDS 0 6912, and in light of
132024 - evident continued difficulties with plant operations, has DNRC
132025 - considered hiring an independent engineer to investigate the project
132026 - and report on whether the work conforms with the plans and specs,
132027 - and/or whether DNRC should hire an engineer to manage completion of
132028 - the contract? It appears that DNRC may have been doing a considerable
132029 - portion of this work, and is substituting its judgement for a
132030 - professional hydro power engineer.
132032 - Sarah said DNRC did this several months ago, and received a report
132033 - that the Broadwater powerplant, as corrected, conforms with the
132034 - specifications and industry standards for this class of work. She
132035 - advised that the report says that all of the work supervised by DNRC
132036 - as a result of Voith and Tudor being off-site, have been accomplished
132037 - according contract specifications.
132039 - [On 911009 this understanding appears to be incorrect per the
132040 - record at ref SDS 5 5830; and on 911125, ref SDS 6 0958.]
132042 - [See analysis on 911009. ref SDS 4 3333]
132044 - Sarah understands that DNRC has negotiated various repairs with Voith
132045 - such that DNRC has performed some, and/or hired others to do some of
132046 - them, and Voith has sent its own forces to the job to do the
132047 - remainder. She feels DNRC is entitled to compensation on some repairs
132048 - performed by DNRC, but she is uncertain whether notice of such
132049 - entitlement was given to Voith, or whether the costs have been
132050 - accumulated so that DNRC can make a demand for recovery.
132052 - Sarah indicated DNRC should recover its management expense on all
132053 - Voith repairs.

1506 - Failure of Operations Automation
150701 - Sarah said so far this feature of the project has not worked as
150702 - promised by Tudor, or expected by DNRC.
150704 - It is not clear who might be responsible. It is likely entirely a
150705 - Voith matter. Tudor probably should provide an opinion on whether
150706 - this much of the project meets the spec or not. If they say it does,
150707 - what then was the agreement between Tudor and DNRC.
150709 - What did the independent Engineer report on this issue?
