Guide Specifications

There are three (3) primary Guide Specifications being used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that assist in specifying and using the RMS and QCS programs.

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.

These specification sections are being 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 software.

The specification sections of interest to the RMS and QCS program are as follows:
