Pay contractors according to the amount of work performed. Maintain sufficient documentation to support all quantities of work performed and payments made to the contractor. Ensure the documentation maintained supports:
- contractor satisfaction of contract requirements
- prompt and fair payment to the contractor
- current, orderly, and accurate records.
Ensure that the contractor completes work as provided in the contract before making payment. Pay only for those materials incorporated into the work in accordance with the contract. Ensure that the contractor assumes liability for completion of the work until final acceptance. Make the contractor repair or replace any defective parts or materials if such defects are discovered on or before final inspection and acceptance of the work.
