of cost estimates will not be compromised in order to meet completion
deadlines or imposed budget requirements.
Final Design (35 percent to 100 percent). The final design phase
may be initiated only after approval of Concept Design by the TMA/DMFO. If,
in the preparation of final design, it is necessary to deviate substantially
from the approved Concept Design, such as the rearrangement of a major
medical department or a change in the interrelationship of functional
elements, design may be suspended and the pertinent facts and justifications
concerning the deviations will be submitted for review and approval by
Comprehensive Interior Design (CID). The final design phase, at
option of the using Military Department, may include a CID effort (using
MILCON P&D funds) for furniture and accessory selection, layout and
identification, and documentation for procurement. Subsequent selections of
furnishings and medical equipment are to be coordinated with the CID.
Final Submittal to TMA/DMFO . When the design is complete, the
Design Agent will submit a copy of the final documents (i.e. CD-ROM,
drawings, specification, cost estimate, instructions to bidders, etc.) to
TMA/DMFO. Along with this package, the Design Agent shall provide a
memorandum to TMA/DMFO certifying that the design has been completed and
that all technical requirements and cost criteria approved at the 35 Percent
Design stage have been incorporated into the Final Design.
