nine-folder project package. Figure 2-3 is an outline of the standardized NCF project package. You will use this format on all tasked projects. The forms for each file may be obtained from the regimental operations department. A flowchart showing the sequence of planning steps is provided in figure 2-4. We will examine the planning sequence and see how the project package is created step by step. These steps also are listed in the project planning milestones list in figure 2-5. Planning milestones should be assigned by Ops at the beginning of home port.
A thorough review of the plans and specifications are absolutely necessary. Figure 2-6 provides a checklist for this review. In addition to the checklist items, many questions, such as those in the following list, must be answered:
What is the scheduled progress at turnover?
Is sufficient time allotted?
Will long lead-time materials be available?
Is work required in occupied buildings?
Is roofing, sitework, or other weather-dependent work to be done in the rainy season?
Do the specifications require phasing of work?
Are there any hazardous materials present (such as asbestos floor tile, siding, roofing, insulation)?
