Your list has a few duplicates but very nice rough scope of work. (Duplicates - 3 is included in 2, two #3's in list but no #12, 14 would be included in 4, 10 appears to be included in 5, 11 and 8 appear to be the same thing

Be careful on the "as required by code" - very little of what you have in your list is specifically or universally required by code - under the basic IRC valley flashing or water shield (in a woven valley) and cheap shingles with 15# tarpaper would suffice in many areas, so don't count on code. If you were going to reference something (though even that does not require everythying you list) go by the NRCA (National Roofing Contractors Association) Roofing Manual - though even most of the things in there are "recommendations", not required, and deals more with methods and fastening and such than with materials. So if you want it, spell it out in the scope of work in the contract.

You can get some idea of general costs in the prior questions with responses in the Home > Roofing link in Browse Projects at lower left - including some discussion of brand/grade of shingle (add to your list), types of underlayment (and the fact true 15# and 30# aren't really used any more and 30# is prohibited by some manufacturers due to bulging and creasing issues), types and effectiveness of different kinds of ridge vents, and of course some ballpark cost info.
