(a) The district shall make monthly progress payments under construction contracts
as the work proceeds or at more frequent intervals as determined by the board.
(b) If requested by the board, the contractor shall furnish an analysis of the total
contract price showing the amount included for each principal category of the work,
in such detail as requested, to provide a basis for determining progress payments.
(c) In making progress payments, the district shall retain 10 percent of the estimated
amount until final completion and acceptance of the contract work. However, if the board, at any time after 50 percent of the work has been completed,
finds that satisfactory progress is being made, it may authorize any of the remaining
progress payments to be made in full. Also, if the work is substantially complete, the board, if it finds the amount retained
to be in excess of the amount adequate for the protection of the district, may release
to the contractor all or a part of the excess amount.
(d) On completion and acceptance of each separate project, work, or other division
of the contract on which the price is stated separately in the contract, payment may
be made without retention of a percentage.
(e) When construction work is completed according to the terms of the contract, the
board shall draw a warrant on the depository to pay any balance due on the contract.
