This UFC applies to all new facility projects regardless of funding source, scope or method of accomplishment. The technical requirements recommended herein may not be applicable for projects outside the United States. Requirements in requests for proposals (RFP) and bid documents for such projects should be based on the appropriate ICAO, NATO, ASCC and National criteria to assure a project can be constructed using local materials, products and techniques.


This UFC provides instruction, requirements and references for customers, DoD facility professionals—including planners, programmers, designers, and maintenance personnel—and architect/engineer and construction contractors to apply sustainable development principles and strategies consistently in DoD facilities throughout their life cycle: from planning to programming and securing of funds, to site selection, design and construction, to documentation and operations and maintenance, and to reuse, or deconstruction and removal. This UFC will help DoD services produce and maintain facilities that comply with existing service policies and federal mandates for sustainable design, energy efficiency, and green procurement of environmentally preferable materials.

This UFC provides the sustainable policies of the Military Departments to satisfy the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Energy Management Scorecard requirement to demonstrate comprehensive implementation of a sustainability program for green buildings that at a minimum requires sustainability design principles on all new construction and major renovations and is consistent with EPACT 2005 and EO 13123, and/or is implementing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings (1/24/06) or equivalent.
