Skip Navigation LinksJob Special Provisions

The Job Special Provisions are revisions to the standard specifications and general provisions applicable to an individual project. Like the standard specifications, the JSPs contain information covering work methods, materials, measurements, or basis of payment. The JSPs take highest precedence over all material contained in the bidding documents.  This database contains the Standard JSP's, Non-Standard JSP's and LPA JSP's. 


 For questions about Job Special Provisions please contact Ivan Schmidt and LPA specific questions can be sent to Melissa Wilbers.
