The online project review system also saves travel time required to distribute the project design documents.
Instead of walking or driving to each organization to drop off the project design document for review, an e-mail containing the design documents is sent out that contains a link to the Civil Engineer Directorate Web page.
The reviewer has instant access to the documents for a certain amount of time.
"Distributing design documents for review used to take days, now it only takes minutes," said Jim Balsamo, 88th Air Base Wing Civil Engineer Directorate chief of design for Patterson Field.
The online project review system also provides more time for the reviewing agencies to accomplish their critical technical and functional review of the project design documents, according to directorate officials.
They said a more thorough review will significantly reduce the number of costly change orders once the project is under construction.
Change orders not only cost Wright-Patterson time and money, but can also impact the ability to accomplish critical base-wide mission.
