SARP Submittal Guidelines

  • Each copy of the SARP and SARP Completeness Checklist shall be submitted bound in three-ring binders and double-sided pages.
  • Photocopies must be of sufficient quality that each page of each copy is clear and legible.
  • Drawings and diagrams, in particular, must be clear and sharp enough that the necessary level of detail can be discerned.
  • Use caution when attempting to make black-and-white photocopies of color originals (such as charts and figures output from finite element analysis software), as valuable information can be lost or obscured.  In such cases, it is usually preferable to include the color output in each copy of the SARP.
  • An electronic version of the SARP and supporting documentation shall be submitted, in pdf, along with the paper copies.
  • It is also recommended that any important references that are not readily available to the reviewers be submitted along with the SARPs.  Be prepared to submit any additional references promptly upon request.
  • Submittals should be sent via express mail so that deliveries can be tracked and that the submittals will arrive in a timely manner.  Please do not use standard mail for submittals
