See Sample in
126.96.36.199 Tailoring: Tailored as necessary to suit the work actually required
by the specific project; modified and edited to reflect the latest proven
technology, materials and methods. Fit the specification to the magnitude of
the job. For instance, a yard of concrete need not be specified by 15 pages
of data while a $15,000 hoist is specified only by a passing reference to an
industry standard. Also limit the number of submittals and testing necessary
for a simple facility. Pay attention to existing conditions, especially for
repair and remodeling projects.
188.8.131.52 Combining Guide Specifications: Do not combine work covered by
various NAVFAC guide specifications into one section unless the work to be
covered is of a minor nature. If a NAVFAC guide specification is not
available for a particular item, prepare a suitable section using the most
recent NAVFAC guide specification format.

requirements have been incorporated in NFGS's; therefore, PACNAVFACENGCOM
regionals have been cancelled.

specialized structures that must meet rigid operational requirements of
management commands and bureaus. An example of a standard specification is
NFSS-M21, "Magazine Earth Covered Circular Composite Arch." When using
standard specifications, observe:
a. Read and carefully follow all notes on the removable preface sheets
of each standard specification.
b. When necessary to modify requirements of a standard specification
for reasons other than to suit local conditions, obtain PACNAVFACENGCOM
c. Do not make modifications to ammunition and explosive storage
PACNAVFACENGCOM standard specifications and drawings without approval.
