b. Less complex facilities where proper operation of the facility or system is critical a
Type B OMSI may be appropriate as follows (may require Type A OMSI if maintenance and
repair information is needed):
Operation and Training Facilities
c. Rather simple facilities such as BEQ, BOQ, Chapels, Admin Facilities, Warehouses and
Community Facilities us ually require a Type C OMSI.
Depending on the complexity of a particular system, even a simple facility such as a Child
Care Center could need a Type A OMSI to provide an OMSI Operation and Maintenance
Manual for that system; e.g., Variable Air Volume (V AV) or Thermal Storage System. A
project such as a hospital, however, would typically cover fifteen or more systems in the
Successful A&E preparation of an excellent quality OMSI manual requires that the
specification include NFGS 01730, "Operat ion and Maintenance Data", and that it be properly
referenced in the technical sections to specify "Data Packages" to be submitted by the
construction contractor. The A&E preparing the OMSI manuals uses this data to develop
comprehensive coverage of a system based on the as-built products in this facility.
Three sets of all approved submittals (except samples) must be retained by the A&E for
preparation of the OMSI manuals.
The PM will advise the A&E of the type of OMSI needed for each project. However,
A&E recommendations are solicited on changes to the OMSI type based on complexity of
systems as design develops. Specific scopes of work for each OMSI manual are provided in
8.4 CATHODIC PROTECTION SYSTEM INSPECTION, TESTING AND ACCEPTANCE
To the extent negotiated in the design contract or task order, the A&E's corrosion
engineer may be required to act as the Government corrosion engineer in final inspection,
testing and acceptance of the cathodic protection systems installed by the construction
contract for the ROICC. Responsibility may include:
a. On-site consultation with the ROICC on the critical stages of construction.
b. Review of Construction Contractor's corrosion engineer cathodic protection system
start-up survey report.
c. Final inspection and testing of cathodic protection systems, approximately 30 days after
construction contractor's report submittal, to verify the contractor's report and insure structure
