for problem resolution and insures the presence of another person during
the inspection of attics, crawl spaces, roofs and fire escapes. Facilities
requiring only a single discipline can be used to smooth resource "peaks"
and "valleys" in the scheduling process.
Climatic conditions (rainy season, severe winters, dry season, storm
season, and tides) impact planned scheduling. Extra inspections may be
necessary after storms.
Special requirements such as special equipment, tools, security clearance,
Inadequate Inspection Resources. If all facilities cannot be inspected at
the CNO recommended frequency (Appendix B), an alternative plan is
needed. One alternative is to use the LMC as the basis for scheduling by
grouping facilities into 3 categories: Group 1 containing LMC "A", Group
2 containing LMC "B", and Group 3 containing LMC "C", "D" and "E", i.e.,
mission essential, mission support and non-mission related. Depending
on resources available, inspect all Group 1, 1/2 of Group 2 and 1/3 of the
Group 3 facilities each year. Note - AIS facility inspection status must
still be reported based on CNO baseline standards (Appendix B) and not
Utilizing an A&E contractor or PWC to inspect all or selected facilities.

A key to successful scheduling execution is to send a memo to the Facility occupant ad-
vising of the scheduled inspection and requesting their input prior to the actual visit.
The memo may contain space for feedback of their problems and experiences for
3.4.3 Control Inspection Times. Inspection time is the amount of time normally
required to examine the facility with appropriate tools or equipment. Appendix C
provides inspection time guides to help prepare initial schedules. Time must be added
to make sketches, report writing, cost estimating, travel and delay time. It is important
to give inspectors adequate time to make careful inspections. Intangible factors that
may affect inspection time allocation are: inspector undergoing on-the-job training,
scope of deficiencies, age of facility, type of construction, and site conditions. Initial in-
spections will generally require more time because the size and scope of deficiencies
found are usually greater. Recording actual inspection time is critical to the success of
future schedule development. Time spent on inspection preparation, on-site inspection,
travel and report writing should be recorded separately. After a series of inspections
