Another Basement Insulation Question


]Hi All, first time poster here,

My builder was kind enough to insulate the interior of my basement walls down from the floor joists to 6 inches from the floor. However, it looks like they 'rolled' the insulation along the wall in two sections. The photo attached allows you to see the 'seam' where the two sections of insulation meet. Most of the openings in the walls have been 'tuck taped' (red tape) pretty well, however it looks like the seam along the middle of the wall has not been taped, and the gaps under the floor joists. I've gone ahead and dri-core'd the whole basement so now I need to tackle the insulation issues before framing.

My questions are as follows:
1. Should I be tuck taping the opening in the vapour barier between the two rolls?
2. Should i be tuck taping around the floor joists, or can this be left open?

Sorry for the sideways pic...I'm a newb at this forum.

Many thanks,

CJ
