restriction.  Except in rare cases, the experience requirements shall not be
so restrictive as to limit participation to one firm.  Maximum competition is
paramount.  Warranty Clauses:  When the one-year warranty contained in the
contract clauses is considered inadequate for certain items of work, the
terms should be modified in the specification to provide for a longer
warranty period.  Include warranties which pertain to the quality and
performance of materials, composites, equipment, and finished construction
(beyond that specified in the contract clauses).  Do not use the term
"guaranty" in lieu of "warranty."  Usually there are no warranty provisions
in supply contracts and these must be included when necessary.  The A-E shall
verify warranties given in commercial practice and include those in
procurement specifications written to support the project.
8.2  AVAILABLE SPECIFICATIONS:  In compliance with Department of Defense's
(DOD) Specifications and Standards Reform Program, NAVFAC is participating in
the move towards the use of commercial specifications (AIA, CSI, etc.) and
standards for replacement of military specifications and standards, where
practicable. The primary basis for developing project specifications shall be
the NFGS. NAVFACENGCOM Guide Specifications (NFGS) and other specifications
and standards are listed in MIL-HDBK-1000/1 (formerly Military Bulletin 34,
Engineering and Design Criteria for Navy Facilities). Primary source:
Construction Criteria Base (CCB), a compact disc system (CD-ROM) available
from the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). See paragraph 5.2
with SGML, an advance specifications processing system, is also available in
CCB.  Secondary source: DODSSP/DSP (see address below under "DOD").
Suggestions for improvement of NFGSs can be submitted to:
