The Chapters are: (1) Introduction;(2) Designer Agreement and Payments; (3) Project Design; (4) Project Manual Guide; (5)Procurement / Bidding; (6) Project Construction; (7) Project Close-Out; and (8) Warranty Period.2.Administrative Forms (Appendix 1): provides several forms for information and use by theDesigner during the project based on instructions in the Administrative Procedures.3.Procurement Documents (Appendix 2): provides standardized documents used in compilingProcurement / Bidding Requirements, Contract Forms, Conditions, and Division 1 specifications ofa Project Manual. Some require editing; most can be used as is. Options to consider areexplained in Chapter 4 - Project Manual Guide.C.Revisions to the Designers’ Manual are suitable for incorporation in current projects as soon as theyare issued. Generally, projects already in the Construction Documents Phase before an issue are notrequired to adopt changes; however, Designers are encouraged to convert, and may be required toconvert on specific projects.D.Other similar Designers’ Manual versions for use on State Building Commission projects are publishedby:1.
