Plan Review Submittals

Project Types - 2020 Forms
A transition from the 2001/2006 Forms to the 2020 Forms began on January 1, 2020 and includes a six-month grace period; any substantive updates
since the January 2020 updates will be indicated next to the appropriate form. After the six-month grace period is completed on June 30, 2020,
all projects with O/A Agreements dated July 1, 2020 or later must use the 2020 Forms. Pre-2020 Forms for such projects will not be accepted.
2020 Forms may be used for any project with O/A Agreements dated earlier than July 1, 2020, including all pre-2020 projects.
Owner/Architect Agreements, Amendments, Construction Contracts and Change Order Forms' signature spaces are specific to project type.
The following documents no longer need to be submitted separately or stated in Special Provisions because they have been incorporated into Form
B-2A Standard Articles of the Agreement and Form C-8 General Conditions to the Contract: B-2A-A Waivers of Subrogation, C-8B Waivers of Subrogation,
C-8S Supplement to the General Conditions of the Contract, Statement of Compliance with Act 2011-535 re Alabama Immigration Law, and
Statement of Compliance with Act 2016-312 re Alabama Boycott Law. Those documents are now automatically part of Agreements and Contracts.
User Fees Calculation Worksheets
DCM’s pdf documents work best when opened with the most recent version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader and when opened from a user's device instead of on an internet browser. First download a pdf from the DCM website
onto your computer, then open the pdf from your computer and use the document (fillable pdf fields may not work/save
correctly when opened and used on an internet browser). After entering data into fillable fields, users can perform a File>Save function onto their computers or
storage devices, then re-open and re-edit the document. Users may also wish to lock fillable-field text before forwarding a document for signature.
Such users can perform a File>Print function, then select Printer>Adobe PDF, select Print, then on the Save PDF File As screen that may be minimized
on the taskbar: select the save location and change the document name if preferred to keep both editable and non-editable versions. As a further
precaution you may then set a password to be required for edits by selecting File>Properties>Security. Please note that locking text into a flattened
.pdf and setting a password is not a guarantee against edits by other users with pdf-editing and password-stripping software.
