SECTION 4
FORMAT AND TYPING OF SPECIFICATIONS
1.  GENERAL:  The practices described herein are in use at the
present and should be followed for all submissions.  The typist who
w i l l be typing the specifications should be briefed thoroughly on
t h e requirements of this Section.
NAVFAC GUIDE SPECIFICATION (NFGS) FORMAT: The NFGS Format is
a modified version of the Construction Specification Institute (CSI)
Format.  I t is a concept of divisions and sections, where a project
s p e c i f i c a t i o n is organized into 16 divisions. with each division
s u b d i v i d e d into related sections.
2 . 1 D i v i s i o n s : The 16 divisions are the permanent framework of
the NFGS format.  They are fixed in number and name. and serve as
b r o a d classifications of the various segments of work.  T h e division
listing follows:
DIVISION 0 - Bidding
DIVISION 1 - General Requirements
DIVISION 2 - Site Work

2.2 Sections:
2 . 2 . 1 The concept of grouping related sections into divisions was
conceived as a practical means of providing uniformity without
d i s r u p t i n g current practices in specification composition; this
m e a n s that specifications are prepared as previously with the
e x c e p t i o n that each section is placed under a specific division.
G r o u p i n g of related work into divisions assures a helpful degree of
u n i f o r m i t y from project to project.  I t also allows specifiers to
develop and reproduce sections and assign numbers to them
i m m e d i a t e l y without fear that they will lose their physical
grouping.  A d d i t i o n a l l y , sections can be deleted or added without
radically upsetting the physical sequence and numbering system. A
