What Is SpecsIntact?

It's more than just software, our name represents our purpose. SpecsIntact is the latest generation for preparing standardized facility construction specifications used worldwide by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE and the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC).

SpecsIntact is a System that consists of two main components, the SI Explorer and the SI Editor, that utilizes Master guide specifications prepared by the tri-services, which is at the heart of what makes the system unique.

The SI Explorer

Through the Explorer, you accomplish all the project management -- creating new projects and processing completed ones; running quality assurance reports; tracking submittals; tailoring specifications to eliminate unneeded product and service content and other functions to adapt multiple specifications to project requirements.

The SI Editor

Is a full-featured document word processor for SpecsIntact XML specifications. With the Editor, users can edit and adapt master guide specifications to individual facilities project requirements. The Editor offers numerous word processing productivity features, including, editing with revisions, spell checking, case conversion, undo and redo, search and replace, and the creation and editing of formatted tables and automated ordered lists. The Editor also offers features specific to federal facilities construction, including automated bracketed option selection, tailoring out product and service content, and the ability to show specifier notes, imperial and Metric units, and XML markup tags. The Editor also offers wizards and tools to perform multiple editing functions at once, including the Section Navigator, the Reference and Submittal Wizards.

What's New In SpecsIntact v5.3

This version of SpecsIntact introduces automatic Ordered Lists and the capability to update a Job or Master's Reference Article to the latest UFGS standards without losing References that are cited in the Section or Supplemental Reference List.

What You Should Know

SpecsIntact is continually incorporating enhancements in response to user suggestions and guidance from the SpecsIntact Interagency Configuration Control and Coordinating Board -- the governing panel that oversees SpecsIntact. The Unified Facility Guide Specifications (UFGS) Master is updated in accordance with the direction and guidance from the UFGS (Specifications) Discipline Working Group -- the governing panel that oversees Unified Facilities Guide Specifications. These panels meet to review and authorize suggested changes to the software and masters, and to ensure compatibility of Master Guide Specifications.

Using this software reduces the time and expense required to produce facility technical specifications, and eliminates costly construction changes due to omissions, discrepancies or improper quality controls. The system uses the UFGS Master Guide Specifications prepared by the agencies.

SpecsIntact and the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) Master continues to adopt the latest MasterFormat™ updates.
