2.8.2 Criteria Resources
In cooperation with the Department of Defense, the National Institute for Building Sciences (NIBS) has
developed the Construction Criteria Base (CCB), an electronic database of military and other federal
construction agencies' guide specifications, technical manuals, standards, cost estimating systems and other
information. CCB is available free for A/E's under contract to the Navy for design services.
CCB contains all NAVFAC Guide Specifications, including regional versions, and all NAVFAC
design publications (Military Handbooks and Design Manuals). In addition, guide specifications
of the Army Corps of Engineers, NASA, VA, DOE and other agencies are included, as are lists of
referenced standards and a matrix of guide specifications. Optionally available are selected
reference standards from over 70 standards writing organizations.
Subscriptions for CCB are available free of charge to A/E contractors doing design work for
EFACHES. To obtain the free subscription, A/E's should submit a request, including the first
page of their design contract, to:
