SECTION 3. DESIGN SUBMITTALS AND REVIEWS
The required submittals will be identified in the "Scope." Generally, submittals shall be made
at the Preliminary (35%), Pre-Final (100%) and Final stages of the design. Government reviews
will be made at the 35% and 100% stages and the resulting comments will be forwarded to the
A-E. The Government will conduct a "back check" review on the Final Submittal to ensure that
Pre-Final submittal review comments have been incorporated or resolved.
3.1.1 Schedule for Submittals. The starting point of the schedule is the contract award date.
The time allowed from the award date and the number of copies required for each submittal will
be indicated in the "Scope." It is imperative that the A-E adheres to the indicated schedule;
since, for expiring fiscal year funding, late submittals may jeopardize execution of the project.
If the A-E cannot accomplish the requested work within the indicated schedule, the A-E shall
notify the OICC Contract Specialist upon submittal of the fee proposal, prior to the
negotiations. During negotiations, a revised schedule accommodating both the A-E's schedule
and project execution will be arranged.
3.1.2 Concept Submittal (10%). A Concept Submittal will be requested for:
1) high dollar amount projects where the work request and the project
documentation (Step II or DD Form 1391) are not explicity clear; or
2) high risk projects in which several or more design options are available
and for which customer and higher level review will be required prior to
selection of the design option; or
3) "Whole House Repair" and other housing projects in which subjective
aesthetic considerations by the user activity determine the direction of the
A Concept Submittal will normally be requested in lieu of the Preliminary (35%) Submittal.
Concept Submittals shall include any or all of the following, as applicable to the project.
a. A site plan showing the building footprint in relation to other existing structures in
the adjacent areas; streets and sidewalks; utility lines; parking areas; etc.
b. A list of all affected rooms and spaces in the existing facility and the additional ones
that are required for the project to be designed. Indicate the net square foot area for
all affected rooms and new rooms; indicate the gross square foot addition to the
