Change 2, 4 December 2006
Electronically seal and sign each drawing sheet and sign the specification coversheet or
RFP coversheet with software that meets the requirements of the professional's state
legal and regulatory requirements. If professional's state of registration has not
implemented or endorsed the use of electronic signatures, the electronic signature
software utilized should meet the requirements of the National Council of Examiners for
Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Model Rules. If the professional is required to
submit "wet-signed" documents to be in compliance with their state regulations, then a
separate "wet-signed" drawing and specification set may be submitted, meeting the
requirements of paragraph 7-4.3. A fully electronic solicitation, including electronic
signatures is still required.
Specific Software Requirements.
The following characteristics are required for the electronic signature software.
The electronic signature and all related data must be applied to the Adobe
Acrobat PDF document and bound to it; i.e. kept within the PDF file.
The electronic signatures shall be printable and viewable in Adobe
Acrobat Reader with no additional software.
The application of subsequent Adobe Acrobat digital signatures by
NAVFAC will not void or affect the professional's electronic signatures.
If required, produce any wet-signed documents from the final electronic PDF documents
(prior to electronic signature application) submitted to NAVFAC.
EDD MEDIA AND ORGANIZATION.
Provide Official submittals on Recordable Compact Discs (CD-R) or as directed.
Submit all CADD files in AutoDesk Drawing (*.DWG) format in NAVFAC supported
version indicated on http://www.wbdg.org/references/pa_dod_ntools.php. Drawing files
shall be full files, uncompressed, and unzipped. Purge files of all unused items (e.g.
blocks, layers, line types, and nested items).
