I. CONCERNING THE FORMATION AND PURPOSES OF THE GREENBOOK COMMITTEE

     This Committee is known as the Greenbook Committee. It is an Administrative Committee of Public Works Standards, Inc. which was created for the following purposes:

A. To produce a new edition of the Greenbook and Greenbook Plans triennially and annual supplements between the triennial publications.

B. To promote the Greenbook and Greenbook Plans and determine the extent of their use by public agencies.

C. To evaluate proposed additions, deletions and revisions to the Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction (hereinafter "Greenbook") and the Standard Plans for Public Works Construction (hereinafter "Greenbook Plans").

Such proposals should promote uniformity, and eliminate conflicts and confusion, among the plans and specifications used by local public agencies in southern California, and should, thereby, lower construction costs by encouraging participation in competitive bidding by more private contractors. To the extent appropriate and consistent with these purposes, this Committee should consider the changing technology and advanced thinking of the construction industry.
