This Handbook supplements ICCSSC RP5, ICSSC Guidance on
Implementing Executive Order 12941 on Seismic Safety of
Existing Federally Owned or Leased Buildings. RP5
describes the approach recommended by the Interagency
Committee on Seismic Safety in Construction (ICSSC) to
fulfill the inventorying and cost estimating
requirements of Executive Order 12941, Seismic Safety of
Federally Owned or Leased Buildings. This Handbook
describes detailed methodologies for developing
inventories, screening for exempt buildings, identifying
buildings for evaluation, and developing cost estimate
information. These methodologies are not mandatory
requirements of the ICSSC recommended program but
provide guidance for agencies which do not have
agency-specific programs in place and would like a model
to follow. The Handbook also outlines the specific
fields to be entered into each agency's electronic
database for owned buildings as well as the specific
items which should be discussed in the supporting
documentation. Each agency is required to follow the
format outlined in these sections when submitting their
information in order to ensure that data received from
all agencies is compatible and machine-readable.
