Developing Preliminary Commissioning Plan

The Commissioning Plan establishes the framework for how commissioning will be handled and managed on a given proj­ect. This includes a discussion of the commissioning process, schedule, team, team member responsibilities, communication structures, and a general description of the systems to be com­missioned. This preliminary version of the plan shall be devel­oped by the GSA PM in conjunction with the Customer Agency. The suggested structure of the Commissioning Plan is as follows. All information in the Commissioning Plan must be project specific.
