Guide Specifications

The guide specifications being used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers assist in specifying and using the RMS program.

Typically, contract specifications are prepared by the Government and are included within the Bid Documents. Increasingly, however, the Government is using "Design-Build" contracts, wherein the Contractor is responsible to prepare and edit the contract specifications.

Each of the specification sections should be thoroughly tailored for each project. That is, they should not be used as they are provided in their raw form. The more complicated a project, the more demanding would the specification be that is properly tailored for the project.

The specification sections  are maintained by the "Construction Criteria Base" and are referred to as "Unified Facilities Guide Specifications" (UFGS). The UFGS documents are a joint effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) and the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA).

The UFGS are published only in electronic format and are intended to be used with SpecsIntact
