Not utilized on minor capital projects (no OMB/DFM review required)
At each level (DD & Final) of the review process the A/E must submit a complete Project Design Submittal Package on the DFM Project Design Document Submittal Requirements Checklist to the DFM Chief of Engineering one week minimum prior to scheduling of the Project Review Meeting.
The DD Project Review Meeting, shall be attended by the A/E, the school district representative, the Construction Manager (CM), and the DFM Project Reviewer. The DFM Project Reviewer shall facilitate the meeting with the A/E responsible for presenting his Project Design Submittal Package, answering any questions, discussing corrective measures (where required), and documenting the meeting discussions, comments, and agreements for package approval.
A Final Design Review will be submitted to DFM for review prior to bidding for projects that have no significant changes from DD. Significant changes include changes in project scope or changes in building systems or elements that would require new Life Cycle Cost Analysis. A letter from the Chief of Engineering and Operations will supplement the DFM Reviewer's Final Review Summary as part of the approval process. The letter will be returned from the Chief of Engineering to the school district within 30 days of receipt. If a school project does have changes, or if specifically requested by the school district, a Final Project Review Meeting may be held using the procedure outlined above.
