meets that exception, no waiver is required.
• Description is inadequate.
389
• 10% for issues that will always be denied
• < 3” bus bar clearance, < 30” battery aisle space,
mixing fused and unfused cable, etc.
256
• Target top 25% for IRCN / ERCN
• 7% for AC outlets; 1 since IRCNs / ERCNs were
published.
• Primary and secondary shared cable rack (9%)
and cable passing thru the rungs (5%) are in

Recent Power ERCNs and IRCNs
AC Test Receptacles – 12’ Rule
• “Every 3rd bay” rule has lost meaning with the implementation
of large spacers and skipped bay spaces.
• Mobility had no specific requirement for test outlets.
• Some alternate methods of providing AC outlets (under raised
floor, mounted on aux framing overhead) were causing safety
concerns.
• Smaller sites with alternate outlets in walls or sites where
AT&T is a tenant / guest and has no control over the location
of AC outlets were not addressed with the existing language.

Test & Acceptance
• AT&T Power Engineers have been receiving requests to add
FPQ for “test and acceptance”.
• Power Building Blocks that install equipment requiring test and
acceptance contain an included work note:
– “Testing, validation, verification, and acceptance activities in
support of ATS pre-acceptance or acceptance of the work.”
• Power OTVs should not add FPQ for “test and acceptance” or
any other synonymous activity. The compensation for these
activities is already included in the Building Block Price Caps
where appropriate.

Minor Material Pricing Discrepancies
• AT&T Power Engineers have been receiving requests to add
FPQ for “minor material pricing discrepancies”.
• Standard procedure when a Power OTV notices a discrepancy
in pricing of minor material or any component of a Building
Block Price Cap is to complete a Building Block Price Cap
Dispute Form and submit it to AT&T GBOS (Procurement,
Supply Chain, etc.) for review.
• Power OTVs should not attempt to add FPQ to quotes for
perceived discrepancies on pricing of minor material.

Minor Material Pricing Examples
• On a recent vendor quote review the following text was
included as justification for adding Driver DC-FPQ003 in the
amount of $53,326:
– “Material not covered by Building Blocks. Additional cost associated
with cable, lugs, and in-line reducers”
• Building Blocks for DC power cabling such as BC-CAP0xx and
their associated DC-CAP0xx and DC-CAP0xxX Drivers contain
the following included work note:
– Cabling of one DC power circuit or paired run, both discharge &
return, up to 10 ft. each, including terminations (i.e. flexible wire
drops, lugs, inline splices, fuses, etc.).
• The requested FPQ was rejected. Do not add FPQ.

Labor Effort Pricing Discrepancies
• AT&T Power Engineers have been receiving requests to add
FPQ for “extra labor or effort due to difficult cable runs”.
• Standard procedure when a Power OTV notices a discrepancy
in pricing of installation labor or any component of a Building
Block Price Cap is to complete a Building Block Price Cap
Dispute Form and submit it to AT&T GBOS (Procurement,
Supply Chain, etc.) for review.
• Power OTVs should not attempt to add FPQ to quotes for
perceived discrepancies on pricing of labor or perceived
differences in labor effort.

Labor Effort Pricing Examples
• On a recent vendor quote review the following text was
included as justification for adding Driver DC-FPQ002 in the
amount of $20,696:
– “Additional labor not covered by Building Blocks due to difficulty of
cable route”
• The Standard Build Program Guidelines contain the following
admonition under the section detailing use of FPQ Drivers:
– There should never be any inappropriate use of a FPQ BB/DR to pay
for anything that is already included in other BBs/DRs. That
includes the use of FPQ Drivers for what the OTV might generally
describe as “extra effort”.
• The requested FPQ was rejected. Do not add FPQ.

Timing of Building Block Releases
• The fluctuating cost of some commodities, especially copper,
causes pricing discrepancies in the Standard Build Program’s
Building Block and Driver Price Caps from time to time.
• In order to address this AT&T has worked with several
suppliers of AIW Southwire to ensure that pricing information
is provided about the first week of odd numbered months to
coincide with pricing adjustments effective from AIW
Southwire on the 15th of odd numbered months.
• AT&T is timing Building Block releases as soon as possible
after these adjustments. Are Power OTV contract managers
interested in reducing the contractual 30 day announcement
cycle to better accommodate these adjustments?
