This unique publication was designed to help the construction industry comply with federal metric procurement requirements. Since September 30, 1992 agencies of the federal government are required to use the metric system of measurement, to the extent feasible, in all procurement, grants, and business-related activities. Metric Guide was created by NIBS under the direction of public and private members of the Federal Interagency Construction Subcommittee. It is the only publication of its kind currently available to aid the construction industry. Included is an introduction to the metric system, a primer on metric usage, instruction on metric document preparation, and guidance on metric management and training. (34 Pages/1991)
