B.     The State Engineer must be responsible for keeping a list of specialty equipment (e.g., nuclear gage, ). The recommended format for this list is a spreadsheet posted on a shared drive or other electronically accessible portal (e.g., Missouri Engineering SharePoint Site). The list will contain the following items for each item:

B.     Photography:

(1)   Photographs detailing and documenting site conditions must be good quality photographs, with details clearly visible in the photograph.

(2)   All construction documentation photographs must be properly filed in the toolkit folder under the Engineering tab, in a folder clearly marked “Construction Photos”.

D.     Record Keeping:

(1)   All construction records are official agency documents.  As such, correctness and completeness are necessary as these documents are part of the project record and may be utilized as a resource or as evidence should discrepancies or failures occur.

 

(2)   Qualified employees, such as engineers and technicians, assigned as inspectors will be responsible for all written and photographic documentation, as applicable, on project installations.  These persons assure that all the required information is properly correlated and recorded in the construction record.

 

(3)   The individuals responsible for the construction record will see that the documentation recording construction activities for archiving and legal purposes includes:

 

(i) Normal working conditions and construction methods.

(ii) Poor working conditions and construction methods.

(iii) Installation, quantities; size, type, or description, and station or location.

(iv) Inferior work performed.

(v) Decisions and instructions.
