DUNS Number from Winning Bidder Not Needed for Non ARRA projects

If a local agency’s transportation project is not programmed with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, they do not need to add Section 3-1.02 (from the sample boilerplate for special provision) into their project’s special provisions. This section requires that per ARRA 2009, the successful bidder must provide a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number.
The sample boilerplate for special provisions is posted at: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/sam_boil/sam_boil.htm
