Shipyards face a major problem in managing the flow of information across the interface with an outside design agent. The purpose of this report is to provide a generic listing of the requirements for a shipyards engineering support contract. The generic list can provide the basis for a modified listing for each specific contract. The generic listing of requirements was developed in conjunction with eight shipyards and five design agents. The contributions of each organization and individual were valuable and assisted in the development of the final listing. The listing of a shipyards requirements was structured in five major elements. 1. Shipyard specific information 2. Project specific information 3. Shipyard imposed project specific requirements 4. Required deliverables 5. Required schedule of deliverables. The conclusions and recommendations include 1. That the check-off list be used in the preparation of engineering support contracts. 2. That the use of the check-off list does not preclude the need for direct liaison between the shipyard and the design agent. 3. That the shipyard and design agent should review the check-off list against their current contracts to ensure that they have or will provide the required data.
