The State of Maryland has published this guide that provides State and local personnel, architects, and governmental officials with the method of operation and administration of the State's Public School Construction Program. The material is arranged in sequential order and follows a project from inception through design, construction, and occupancy. An introductory section provides a brief outline of the general procedures and responsibilities for a school capital improvement project. Section 1 examines the programming phase where an educational facilities master plan is developed, and a capital improvement program is established, architects are selected, and sites are approved. Section 2 describes the planning steps, individuals involved, the educational specifications document, and the schematic review process. Section 3 describes design and construction reviews, bidding, and change orders. Section 4 explains the procedure for systemic renovations to prolong facility life. Section 5 describes the process and procedure for reporting or requesting approval facility use changes. Section 6 covers use, maintenance, and movement of State-owned relocatable classroom buildings. Final sections detail the appeals process; maintenance plan development, including funding, reporting, and compliance. Appendices include the rules, regulations, and procedures of the School Construction Program; various educational specifications; applicable procurement laws; and a table of forms. (GR)
