Detailed Workflow

The MSU Construction Standards Deviation Log is created either by the Project Manager (on small projects) or by the Consultant (on large projects).  The Deviation Log is used to document decisions made to either accept or reject potential deviations from the MSU Construction Standards.  The Consultant is required to submit the Deviation Log as an attachment to each progress payment.  For smaller, in-house projects, the Project Manager will keep the form filed in the Unifier Document Manager for the project.  If there are any deviations from the standards, the Deviation Log will be attached to the Skilled Trades Inspectors Transmittal during the plan review process.
