Require the DOR to include the final coordination review check-set of
plans and specifications with the final submittal.
Return the plans and specifications to the DOR for rework if the spot-
check or other procedure indicates inadequate quality control by the DOR
or if design errors or omissions are found.
Process payment for final plans and specifications after adequate quality
control has been accomplished by the DOR.
Delete comments directing the DOR to make specific changes to the
project design, except under unusual circumstances and with careful
documentation, to avoid assuming responsibility for the design.
Specifically evaluate the DOR quality performance in A-E performance
evaluations, for both the post-design or post-RFP development completion
and the post-construction completion, for consideration in future selection

Resident Office In Charge of Construction or Public Works
The Resident Office in Charge of Construction (ROICC) or Public Works Department
(PWD) reviews the plans and specifications or the RFP at an early Design Development
stage and at the Pre-Final submission. The review should be limited to project
constructability (e.g., site problems, existing obstructions or proposed utilities, new
construction methods, proposed contract time for construction, omissions,
discrepancies, known issues that have occurred at this site or with projects of similar
scopes, and coordination problems that could lead to change orders or construction
difficulties) and design (for RFP development) and construction quality control
Commander, 1st Naval Construction Reviews.
Projects scheduled for accomplishment by Naval Construction Forces are reviewed at
an early Design Development stage by Commander, 1st Naval Construction Division, for
construction methods and procedures.
Reviews for Health Hazards During Facilities Design Process.
For facilities projects that require industrial hygiene technical assistance and that
involve potential health hazards such as toxic materials, non-ionizing radiation, noise, or
other health hazards, consult the appropriate Naval Environmental Health Center
(NEHC) for the activity. The NEHC activity is required to participate in design and RFP
development reviews and reviews of plans, specifications, or RFP for these projects.
The NEHC activity will ensure that engineering designs properly consider and provide
