Dear Antoinette Kelly,

Thank you for providing payment information to the primary contractor.
Are there no ancillary payments to other vendors related to these projects, in preparation to, and during/after the commencement of these projects?

Yours sincerely,
BL

Antoinette Kelly, Ridgewood Public School District

Good Morning Ms. Lima:
The only other vendor that was paid as part of this project was the
Architect.

Dear Antoinette Kelly,

Architect's payment information is missing from the original response.
Were any payments made for construction management / project management?
Were there any expenses related to bid management / state approvals / bid advertising / change orders / change management?

Yours sincerely,
BL

Antoinette Kelly, Ridgewood Public School District

Good Afternoon Ms. Lima:
We did not use a construction manager for this job. We did pay for bid
advertising and we had two change orders.
I'll send you this information along with the Architects invoices by
tomorrow.

Dear Antoinette Kelly,

Thank you.
Please provide two clarifications:
1. On October 30th, you wrote: "We did not use a construction manager for this job.".
Attached invoice from the architect has line items of $11,000 for construction management(2*5500)?

2. On October 31st, you wrote: "Attached please find the additional information you requested"
Should it read "missing information from original response"? Or are you considering my follow-ups as 'additional requests'?

Yours sincerely,
BL

Antoinette Kelly, Ridgewood Public School District

Good Afternoon Ms. Lima:
On small capital projects like the bathrooms the architect also usually
acts as the project/construction manager as in this case.
We did not hire a separate vendor to be the construction manager and yes I
considered your follow ups as additional information.
When I first responded to your request I thought you were looking for the
general contractors payments/invoices only. I misunderstood
the request.
