package from the contractor.  Accordingly, the A/E shall complete and forward
consultation reports on VECPs to the ROICC and DM within 5 working days from
the time of receipt.  In addition, the A/E shall also forward one copy of the
VECP consultation report to NORTHDIV Code 04AB.

Design Field Support consists of periodic site visits by teams of A/E
personnel to observe and report on particular phases of construction or
problems, ascertain the progress of construction and to assist the ROICC in
quality assurance measures.  The purpose of the team visits is to ascertain
whether work-in-place satisfactorily meets the intent of the design and to
keep the A/E aware of the status and quality of construction.  As a general
rule, design field support is required for critical design elements or phases
of the construction work.  The number of visits and A/E team composition is
based on the size, complexity, qualifications of ROICC personnel at the site
and location of the project.  The request for a site visit and the preferred
A/E team composition wil be determined by the ROICC.  Only the design
disciplines directly involved with that particular critical design element
should make site visits.  Visits will be coordinated and scheduled by the
ROICC to allow the A/E and government to get maximum benefit from each trip.
