Fully Locally-Funded Public University Project Forms
Fully locally-funded definition: A project for which the funding is derived from the resources of the local Awarding Authority/Owner, including
but not limited to federal and local funds, grants and donations (no state bond issue funds are involved).
Fully locally-funded public university projects are administered by DCM's Plan Review Division and Project
Inspection Division, and are not administered by DCM's Contract Administration Division:
- Plans and specifications must be submitted to DCM for Plan Review. A completed B-1: Transmittal form must
be included with each submittal of plans and/or specifications per the Manual of Procedures
- Chapter 3: Submittal Requirements & Procedures for Plan Review.
See User Fees webpage for required Plan Review Fee payment information. Storm damage: If the AL Division of Risk Management (DRM) is the insurer,
include the DRM claim #, if any, on B-1 transmittals.
- If the project involves a storm shelter, see DCM Bulletin Updated Guidance on
Mandatory Storm Shelters in New Buildings of Public Universities and Colleges [Act 2012-554] dated 10/21/20, and note that the following two documents must be included in the
project manual submitted for final plan review: DCM Form C-17: Contractor’s Statement of Responsibility for Construction
of Tornado Storm Shelter (Hurricane Shelter Where Applicable), and DCM Form B-14: Certification of Structural
Observations. Submittal instructions for completed DCM Forms C-17 and B-14 are provided at the bottom of the Forms.
- All projects require a DCM Inspector-facilitated pre-construction conference which can be scheduled after the
Permit Fee is paid. Benchmarks must then be met for required inspections as listed in the
Pre-Construction Conference Checklist.
- Fully locally-funded public university projects use contract documents as deemed appropriate by the Owner, who may use DCM forms (we suggest DCM's
K-12 forms which have the least amount of signature lines you would need to modify) with the permission of
DCM Director Frank Barnes, firstname.lastname@example.org. DCM does not
modify forms for such use.
- For detailed plan review and inspections requirements, see DCM's Manual of Procedures.
- A Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Exemption for a Government Entity Project administered by the Alabama Department of Revenue must be acquired
separately by the Owner, General Contractor and Subcontractors per Act 2013-205 for each project.
Public School and College Authority (PSCA)
Partially or fully Public School and College Authority (PSCA)-funded university projects
are administered by DCM's Contract Administration Division, Plan Review Division and Project Inspection Division. PSCA forms must be used during
the project and submitted to DCM; see DCM's PSCA webpage
