However, it is important to note that documejt RFI process is used fairly and with integrity on most projects with beneficial results. The architect may choose to conduct the Preconstruction Conference.
In this case, In-Place Mock-ups can be scheduled where the initial installation of a product or system can be reviewed as construction is begun. Log and track RFIs independently from the contractor. When the architect issues a certificate of substantial completion for work contracted to others, the architect can take on unnecessary and inappropriate risks.
The Preconstruction Conference is the primary construction phase planning meeting. Projects cannot be constructed by one person; therefore project meetings are necessary to facilitate project communications. Require notarized contractor signatures on the application.

In some cases, the process has been manipulated to show an excessive amount of required RFIs, such as 16 identical RFIs for a reoccurring condition on each floor of a multi-story building, and this exaggerated and inaccurate data is used in contractor claims against the architect. Submittal requirements should be discussed in the Preconstruction Conference, including the requirement for submission of a Submittal Schedule. The preparation and issuance of the punch list s often does not occur in sequence with the issuance of the certificate, therefore the certificate should indicate punch list provided under separate cover if it is not physically attached.
Enforce submission of a submittal schedule from the contractor.
Architects are not construction cost dpcument as contractors are, and the contract documents typically do not require the architect to provide accounting or cost-of-the-work assessments.

If the number and frequency of visits are prescribed in the services agreement, such as one time per week, consideration should be made for an alternate construction contract administrator to substitute in the event of illness or other absences by the assigned administrator.
