messages, small supplies or other items that physically "fit" and
can tolerate this method of transport. These systems can be
point-to-point or multi-station in design.
Post Occupancy Evaluation.
Program Objective Memorandum.
Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE). An evaluation of the design and
construction of a facility performed after BOD to obtain lessons-
learned which can be applied to present and future designs and
Precious Metals Recovery Program. Promotes the economical
recovery of precious metals from excess and surplus materials,
and the use of recovered precious metals as Government Furnished
Pre-Engineered Buildings (PEB's). For the purpose of these
criteria, pre-engineered buildings shall be considered as those
buildings in various configurations and sizes that are available
from manufacturers as a standard item. This type of construction
may be used for DoD medical and dental facilities where such use
is indicated by life cycle cost to be economical, where they will
meet the performance and functional requirements of the project
and are architecturally compatible with the environment in which
they will be erected. Because of the great variance in the
quality and cost of such structures on the market, extreme care
must be used in selection to ensure that the quality of the
facility to be provided is commensurate with the project
requirement and expected longevity of the mission to be served.
Prefabrication. The on-site or off-site advance manufacture of
building systems and components traditionally fabricated in place
such as medical service columns or shop operations. (See Section
Program Amount (PA). The initial program amount is the estimated
cost of a facility based on the DoD Cost Guidance and 1391
preparation prior to any design effort which establishes a
project's viability in the budget cycle. Once Concept Design is
completed the PA may be adjusted (up or down) based on the
developed and validated CWE from the Design Agents. This PA
(new) may be the amount sent to Congress and the basis of Final
Contract Document Design phases through Invitation for Bid (IFB).
Program Objective Memorandum (POM). Formal document to identify
major initiatives, their resource consumption estimates, and
manpower and fiscal resources.
