  5. Engineer prepares standard SA form and may use sample SA language
  6. Office manager reviews SA form

  8. Office manager distributes signed SA - original to Engineer file, signed copies to Materials, head inspector and SA  Tech.
  9. SA Tech enters approval information into Construction Management System.  Standard SA is fully executed when required signatures are affixed and required funds are encumbered.  Approval date in CMS reflects "fully executed" date.
  10. CMS downloads SA to the field office, including fund encumbrances and paylines.
  11. Office manager checks that SA is downloaded to CMS
  12. Office of Construction & Innovative Contracting forwards copy of fully executed SA to Engineer.

  • Use downloaded pay items for SA work once SA is fully executed
  • Pay items may overrun if unit prices or Force Account are used
  • Encumber additional funds with a request for overrun.
