5.1  PURPOSE:  The A-E's Basis of Design is necessary to insure that
projects are developed in conformance with established Navy/Air Force/Army
criteria and that they are within authorized scope and funds.
The Basis of Design shall be a bound, indexed presentation of facts
sufficiently complete that fully describe special requirements or
situations affecting the work.  It shall include the codes and criteria
utilized and justification for any proposed departure from standard plans,
specifications, NAVFACENGCOM technical publications, military handbooks,
and design manuals or other criteria.  The information to be addressed and
included are described in the following paragraphs.
and standards for design are contained in MIL-HDBK-1190, "Facility Planning
and Design Guide" and in a series of NAVFACENGCOM design manuals and
Military Handbooks.  (See Appendix E for a listing.)  A CD-ROM system
published and distributed by the National Institute of Building Sciences
(NIBS) to over 3,000 subscribers.  CCB contains over a million pages of
easily accessible and rapidly searchable documents and executable programs,
provided directly to NIBS by over 120 participating federal agencies (Navy,
Army, Air Force, etc.) and building industry trade associations,
professional societies, standards-writing organizations and code bodies.
Under a DOD site license of CCB, free copies are currently available for
all DOD offices, including Navy and Marine Corps.  Starting with CCB DISC
#38 (mailed in November 1996), all contractors for Navy, Army, and AF will
get CCB for free.  A-Es will be required to provide a copy of the signed
contract form with a start and end date.  CCB also includes SPECSINTACT, an
automated specification processing system.  (Refer to Appendix E - CCB
Bulletin for additional information.)

the construction of Shore Facilities Systems.  NAVFAC Criteria Interpretation and Waivers:  If a waiver of
technical design criteria appears justified and makes "good business
sense," it will be granted by NAVFAC 15C.  However, if it is determined
that the criteria is not correct or current, NAVFAC might change the
criteria, not just give a waiver.  Action, Consultation and Engineering Response (ACER) Team Studies:
