Construction Law/FAA specification for excavation


Dear Sir,
On a project following FAA specifications for excavation, there is a non-clarity regarding earth work excavation and its subsequent disposal through temporary stock piling in between. There are two distinct pay items given as per following details in the specification.
Pay Item     Description
P-152-4.1    Unclassified Excavation
P-152-4.6    Stock Piled Material
My questions are
1. If these two pay items are payable separately as description given in specification is not very clear ? or
2.Does stock piling pay item includes excavation activity as well?

Dear Mr. Muneeb,

Thanks for your Questions. It is already cleared by the above BOQ Items are mentioned in separate manner.

The first items is excavation and the second items is Stockpile and disposal. But, you should check the Qty's and the Quoted rate also. Some times the Stockpile and disposal combined by Qty or Rate.

Thanks and Regards,
