Subject 665-2-6 INSPECTION AND TESTING
The receiving agency shall inspect all materials, supplies, equipment and services upon delivery to ensure compliance with the contract requirements and specifications.
GTA may periodically inspect any items or work products to ensure that specifications are met. The agency must ensure that goods or services purchased comply with applicable codes, statutes, local ordinances, policies or safety requirements.
When samples are required in response to a solicitation document, agency or GTA may test those samples or have them tested at other designated facilities. Samples shall not be sent directly to laboratories outside the agency or GTA unless it is determined by GTA that these facilities have the capability, time, or expertise needed. Furnished samples shall be returned if reasonable and specifically requested.
When the agency that awarded the contract or GTA determines it to be advantageous to the state, it may authorize revisions to a contract specification, including any cost adjustment associated with any such revision, as part of contract administration. If an increase in cost results in the total contract value being more than the agency's delegation, then the agency shall obtain prior written approval from GTA, regardless of what agency initially awarded the contract.
Where goods or services delivered fail to meet the specifications or contract requirements, the discrepancy shall be resolved by the agency that issued the solicitation document.
