NMCI CONVERSION PROCESS
NMCI CONVERSION PROCESS. This chapter contains an
overview, in a template format, of the process associated with a base conversion.
It is not within the scope of this UFC to provide details on the various processes.
Furthermore, the NMCI Contractor is continually refining its processes and a
detailed representation would quickly go out of date and create confusion among
users of this UFC. There are agreed-to cutover plans between DoN and the
NMCI Contractor for each base. In order to meet these schedules, the NMCI
Contractor may elect to accelerate certain portions of the construction or modify
steps in the process given herein to meet these schedules. There is no
obligation expressed or implied by the NMCI Contractor or the government that
these processes will be rigidly observed at all times and in all cases. Ongoing
communication between the NMCI Contractor and the base personnel may
require additional meetings and some deviations to the process framework
provided herein. Additional documentation on these processes is available from
the NMCI Contractor.
It is also important to note that the processes briefly described in
this chapter apply only to the infrastructure work. There are other simultaneous
processes affecting such things as legacy applications and seat rollouts. Such
items are beyond the scope of this UFC.
OVERVIEW. NMCI Contractor constructed facilities are
constructed to commercial "best practices," and are not required to conform to
the standard Military Handbooks, Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC), or Unified
Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS). However, the requirements in this UFC
must be followed and the requirements for Life Safety and Fire Protection must
comply with MIL-HDBK-1008C, Fire Protection for Facilities Engineering, Design,
and Construction. The NMCI Contractor is also required to follow standards
identified in the ADAAG/UFAS. In addition, any project for FY 04 and beyond,
independent of funding type, must also comply with the antiterrorism and force
protection standards as set forth in UFC 4-010-01, DoD Minimum Antiterrorism
Standards for Buildings.
Note: Although the UFC 3-600-01, Design: Fire Protection Engineering for
Facilities is the latest criteria, the NMCI contractor is only required to comply with
MIL-HDBK-1008C, Fire Protection for Facilities Engineering, Design, and
Construction, which was the ruling criteria at NMCI contract award.
Material Support. The Government is contractually bound to
provide government furnished equipment (GFE) and government furnished
facilities (GFF) to the NMCI Contractor to support the build-out of the NMCI
Contractor infrastructure. Detailed information on roles and responsibilities
