Procedures for preparing CONUS material and price list are shown

procure CONUS products (example only).
6. If IBOP analysis recommends use of CONUS materials, project

T o minimize duplication of price investigations of CONUS
m a t e r i a l s , each design branch must designate an engineer in charge

C o s t Engineering Branch is ultimately responsible for IBOP
