minimization of false design starts, the establishment of open communications,
organization and reduction of information for effective use, and providing a
mechanism for timely, cost-effective decision making and tracking.
The A/E shall lead the effort for the on-site project analysis work.
work shall include:
1)  Site Investigation:  The A/E shall perform as much of the site
investigation services required by  the Appendix "A" as possible within the
time allotted for this segment of the work in order to properly define the
project, establish costs, and to meet the requirements for the PE Phase
2)  On-Site Project Analysis Meetings:  The A/E shall organize on-
site meetings, conduct interviews, and lead work sessions which result in an
on-site Project Analysis (Draft Architectural Program or Draft Project
Definition) for the project.  The completed on-site project analysis shall
include space requirements lists, space relationship diagrams (bubble diagrams
and/or matrices), horizontal blocking diagrams, and vertical stacking
diagrams.  The on-site project analysis shall also address special issues and
furnishing requirements and summarize site considerations/features/restraints,
and budget considerations/constraints.  A/E meeting participants shall include
the A/E's project manager, project architect and one lead engineer.
Government participants may include the customer, (ACTIVITY), Public Works
representatives, ROICC representatives, and the NORTHDIV Project Manager,
Design Manager and Value Engineer.  Completion of the Project Analysis step
will be signified by a total team sign-off of the completed on-site Project
Analysis (Draft Architectural Program or Draft Project Definition).
b)  On-Site Schematic Development:  The goal of the on-site schematic
development step is to integrate the results of the on-site project analysis
step into a draft schematic design by team consensus.  Accordingly, the A/E
shall lead a team effort involving the same participants for the Project
Analysis step in synthesizing ideas, studying and testing options and
alternatives, selecting alternatives, and developing a draft solution.  This
effort will entail developing draft schematic floor plans, elevations and
sections, site layout, and preliminary costs.  Completion of the On-Site
Schematic Development Step will be signified by a total team sign-off of the
completed draft solution.
c)  PE Phase Submission (Final Schematic):  For the PE Phase Submission
step the A/E shall finalize the on-site Project Analysis into a Final
Architectural Program and finalize the On-Site Schematic Development into a PE
Phase submission.  Submission requirements for the PE Phase are enumerated in
the Appendix "A" and detailed in this A/E Guide under the heading of
"Schematic Submission" requirements in the chapters for each design
(NOTE:  When indicated in the Appendix "A", the A/E shall present the PE Phase
Submission at the site or at NORTHDIV.  A/E requirements for this presentation
are given under the heading of "Schematic Presentation" in the A/E Guide
chapter titled "Meetings".)
Value Engineering (VE) Coordination/Final Resolution Report
Following completion of the Design Development submission, a Value Engineering
(VE) Team Study of the project will be conducted through a separate contract
with a VE consulting firm.  The contract for the VE Team Study will be
administered by NORTHDIV, however, the A/E shall submit project data, present
the design concept, interact with the VE Team, prepare written comments on VE
proposals, discuss and resolve VE proposals at the Design Development Review
Board Meeting (see the chapter titled "Meetings") and submit a final
resolution report.  A/E submission of data to the VE Team, A/E receipt of the
