CONTROL OF PEST PLANTS IN THE LAKESHORE NATURE PRESERVE

(contract last updated 04/18/2019)

SCOPE:    Contract for the purchase of Controlling of Pest Plants for the Lakeshore Nature Preserve and UW Campus.

 

The 300 acre preserve is located on the main UW-Madison campus.  General information about the Preserve can be viewed on the website at:  http://www.lakeshorepreserve.wisc.edu/ with a detailed interactive map.

 

Pest plant control services may be requested anywhere within the Preserve.  Specific treatment areas will be determined by the Preserve’s Program Manager or designee.  Work may occur throughout the year, although some work activities are season dependent.

 

Control methods may include manual (hand-pulling or digging), mechanical (cutting and mowing), or chemical (herbicide application) control of herbaceous (non-woody) and woody plants as specified by the Program Manager or designee.  Processing (chipping) plant waste is included as a separate bid lot.  Contractor must follow recommendations in the Preserve Invasive Plant Control Handbook (Attachment I).  Felling trees larger than 6 inches in diameter is outside the scope of this contract.

 

The Program Manager or designee will provide the Contractor(s) with an anticipated work estimate at least twice yearly.  For Spring/Summer work (April-August) the Program Manager will provide notification no later than April 1.  For Fall/Winter work (September-March) the Program Manager or designed will provide notification no later than August 1.  Within five (5) days of receiving notification of the estimated work, the Contractor will provide a written response to the Program Manager or designee indicating if the Contractor will be able to complete the work as detailed in the notification.  As unanticipated needs require, the Program Manager or designee may request additional services throughout the year, not specifically detailed in the anticipated work estimate.

 

All Contractor work must be scheduled at a minimum of 1 day in advance with the Program Manager or designee.

 

UW Facilities Planning and Management (FP&M) will work with contractor to schedule work on campus.

Terms: N/30
Delivery:

Pest plant control services will be delivered as appropriate for the treatment protocol.  The critical “time  window” for certain chemical treatments (e.g. herbicide application to garlic mustard) will depend on weather conditions and the state of plant development.

 

The Contractor is expected to deliver chemical treatment services only during periods when plant development and weather conditions are optimal for effective control.  The Program Manager or designee will determine when optimal conditions exist for chemical treatments, and may suspend treatment activities if it is deemed that the effective control cannot be achieved.

 

The Contractor will notify the Program Manager or designee EACH and EVERY time they plan on working in the Preserve to confirm that the optimal treatment conditions exist.
Invoicing: Invoices shall reflect contract pricing.
Other: Pricing not available to: University of Wisconsin System campuses , State of Wisconsin Agencies, Wisconsin Municipalities, Other CIC member institutions or Non-Profit Organizations specifically linked by their mission to the University of Wisconsin Madison.
