    In the event that University Owned fiber optic or other cable is damaged or cut at campus locations, University will contact Contractor to provide “Emergency Services’.

             Per contract terms, emergency services will require a site visit by Contractor within 2 hours of initial contact to determine the nature and extent of the damage to the cable.  Once the damage is determined, Contractor will have 24 hours to complete a “temporary” repair to the cable.  This will include, at a minimum, the installation of mechanical splices with waterproof splice cases, testing, and labeling.  Contractor will provide test results to the University within three days after the temporary repair is completed.  The University will then have seven days to accept or reject the results.  If the University does not respond to Contractor within seven days, the work will be deemed acceptable.  Contractor will then have 30 days to return to complete a “permanent” repair which will include fusion splicing and permanent replacement of waterproof casing or housing.  The same testing and labeling procedures as listed for the temporary repair will also apply to the permanent repair.

             Contractor will bill Contract rates for all work done under the terms of this amendment

             In the event that conditions do not allow for the completion of the Permanent repair within the 30 day time frame, (i.e. “Force Majeure “, extreme weather conditions), University will work with Contractor to determine a reasonable timeframe to complete the work in a safe and high quality manner.

             Testing will be completed by Contractor.  Acceptance of the completed work will be done by University.  The telephone numbers and email addresses of the department point-of-contact individuals (and the alternate points-of-contact) will be provided to Contractor.  Contractor will also provide the telephone number of their on-site supervisor to the University points-of-contact.

             University will prepare and make available an “Emergency Repair Kit” that will contain necessary cabling and splicing materials that can be used for the emergency repairs anticipated in this amendment.  Additional information regarding placement or storage of this kit will be worked out between University staff and Contractors personnel.  This kit will be University owned and as inventory is used, University will be responsible for replacing and replenishing the kit.

             Aerial Span Restorals are not part of this contract.

             Purchase Orders for this emergency service work to be performed will be prepared by University.  Any third party insurance claims for damage to University property will be pursued by University and will not be Contractors responsibility.
