ORDER OF PRECEDENCE. This UFC does not and cannot
supersede or add to the requirements of the NMCI contract. If conflicts arise
between this document and the NMCI contract, the NMCI contract governs.
ORDER OF PRESENTATION. This UFC presents a summary of
the requirements to prepare DoN space for a future NMCI installation in chapter
2. Chapters 3 and 4 provide information on how an existing base, or building, is
converted to NMCI. Preparing for an NMCI seat is the goal. This document is
not intended as a "cookbook" methodology for conversion, but only one way of
getting there. DoN and the NMCI Contractor are committed to meeting the
deployment objectives at least cost to both parties within the NMCI contract
COORDINATION. Although this criteria document was written to
be as inclusive as possible, Information Technology (IT) installations may vary
greatly from building to building. It is therefore imperative that the government
facilities team, facility designer, and construction contractor coordinate closely
with the NMCI contactor at each stage of planning, design and construction.
Please see the current MCON/MILCON NMCI guidance available at
4.6 for additional information and detailed coordination requirements for the
Naval Facilities Engineering Commands, ROICC offices, and Public Works
APPLICATION. This UFC covers DoN owned and leased
(commercial and Inter- Agency Agreements) facilities regardless of location. For
leased facilities, there will probably be additional approvals and may be
additional criteria not covered in this instruction.
