Beverly Fayson:

Dear Ms. Fayson:

This responds to your letter of February 7, 1991, requesting our comments on Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) case No. 90-62, which concerns construction contracting.

FAR case No. 90-62 is a proposal to revise FAR section 36.521, add FAR sections 36.522 and 36.523, and prescribe contract clauses at FAR sections 52.236-21, 52.236-26, and 52.236-27. The changes would affect fixed-price construction contracts, and contracts for dismantling, demolition, or removal of improvements. The proposed revisions would provide for site visits by offerors or quoters and for preconstruction conferences by awardees. The changes also would prescribe requirements for "as built" drawings.

We have no objection to the proposed changes.
