We did some projects in the past under the DSA jurisdication. Some of those projects involved prefab trusses designed by others under our auspice. We had not been required to affix our EOR stamp on those document prepared by others than our "Shop Drawing" stamp. Naturally when the shop drawings came, we made sure those designed in full compliance with our specifications and built according to the approved set of document. In this case, is there much indifference between shop drawing review acceptance as comparing to EOR stamp? or are we still missing some links in between? Thank you for your time.

James, Signing drawings from specialty suppliers is a fact of life for the EOR in CA for schools, you could have designed the system yourself and not used the prefab space truss. As noted in an earlier email, with was discussed at length in late 98 and you will get alot of comments from those who have not worked on CA School projects and the DSA saying do not sign. But it is a DSA requirement and if you do not sign the truss drawings, the job stops. You just have to do whatever you need to do, to verify everything to your satisfaction. If this includes more information from manufacturer, then require that additional information. I provide structural calcs for skylight structures, not the 4x8 bubble, but the 20 foot by 60 foot shed or pyramid of all sizes, and we provide enough information in calcs and analysis to satisfy the EOR. You can choose to "flat out refuse", but you will most likely be removed from this project (read your rfp info carefully), and may not get another from this client. If you read the licensing information closely it does not say you cannot stamp and sign work by others, it just indicates the responsible party, do the work that enables you to perform the DSA requirement. This is not a new requirement, the EORs have been doing it for a long time, remember your choosing a prefab component does not make any difference to the DSA, it just made your work simpler. It is just like using computer software and claiming that the software made the mistake and it is not your fault, instead of the software you would always analyze it by hand.
