Specifications include, but are not limited to: To remove all snow from entrance roadways, parking lots, and other areas of the facilities as listed and specified
herein. Some building sidewalks are included in this bid – please note which ones. Vendor shall furnish all
equipment, vehicles, labor, and supervision to perform the work specified herein.
Areas requiring snow plowing are to be properly staked prior to the start of each snow season. This is to be
completed by the Vendor. If damage is found while the Vendor is staking the property, the Vendor shall be
responsible for notifying the Contract Manager in writing. The State of New Hampshire will reject any claim that
the area was damaged before snow plowing commenced if the claim was not made before the first storm.
The Vendor shall commence operations as follows:
• Plowing and removal operations shall begin upon the accumulation of two (2) inches of snow or more,
unless otherwise specified differently in the facilities’ scope of work and
• Salting and sanding shall occur at any time conditions warrant. The following are examples: freezing rain,
black ice, sleet, spring melt off, and snow drift clean-up.
Snow is to be removed or sanded/salted as soon as accumulation reaches a depth indicated for each location,
every time it snows, and plow continuously for the duration of the storm so as not to allow large accumulations
of snow, so that in the event emergency vehicles need to gain access to any part of the location, they will be
able to do so. All areas requiring snow removal shall be completed by the times indicated for that location.
The Vendor shall maintain locations with the goal of obtaining bare and dry pavement. Bare pavement should
occur as soon as practical after a winter storm terminates.
