    I've done numerous public works projects, but I don't know what a FAR is? Please explain.

        Field Adjustment Request. We use it when we have deviate from the prints. Happens alot when we do underground utilities or when we have a better idea than the engineers that is nonstructual. Go to google and type-seabee crewleader handbook- an example of the form is on page 256. I tried to make a link but couldn't figure it out.

            We got those to. We call them red line prints. You, with a red pencil, write on the prints what you did. Mostly involves utility deviation from prints. We then turn them into engineering every month then at the end of the project and engineering updates the master prints.

            A FAR is more for anytime you deviate from the prints in a way in could come back on you. It could be anything. This takes the blame off of you the worker and places it on the engineers if things go wrong. This is all in writing so to elimanate "he said, she said".

            Does this make sense or am I still clear as mud?

                Exactly, never looked at it like that but that's it.

                  Since you are a SeeBee I'm assuming this is a military term.

                    I guess it is. I thought you might know it since we both use RFI's (saw it on a previous post of yours). I guess FAR's just apply to us. I guess I am jaded.
