UFGS Master Updated August 25, 2022; Posted August 25, 2022
Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) are a joint effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC), the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (HQ AFCEC) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). UFGS are for use in specifying construction for the military services.
The Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) are published only in electronic format and are intended to be used with SpecsIntact software. The UFGS Master complies with UFC 1-300-02. SpecsIntact supports the UFGS format. SpecsIntact can still open Masters or Jobs created with older versions of the UFGS format.
Updated UFGS are posted quarterly in February, May, August, and November.
SpecsIntact version 4.5.0 and above incorporates Automatic Paragraph Numbering. Versions of Specsintact older than 4.5.0 are not compatible with this feature. Existing jobs can be converted to the new automatic numbered format. The conversion is a one-way process. To convert, select the job or master, select process menu, choose convert Job/Master to Automatic numbering. More information about Automatic Paragraph Numbering is available on the SpecsIntact website.

UFGS that have been unified for use by all participating agencies have a level 3 or level 4 Section number. The UFGS uses level 5 to identify a single-agency specification. The number "10" is used by USACE, "20" by NAVFAC, "30" by AFCEC, and "40" by NASA. The order of precedence for selecting UFGS sections for a project is generally:
- Regional UFGS if required by the contract or published on WBDG
- Single-agency UFGS for whom project is being developed
- Unified UFGS
- UFGS identified as specific to another DoD Service (for DoD projects only)
Points of contact and procedures for the development and maintenance of UFGS documents are prescribed in the latest edition of MIL-STD-3007.
Section templates for UFGS: These templates are provided to assist the user in creating a new section and available in SpecsIntact.

Questions, comments, suggestions and recommended changes for guide specifications are welcome and should be submitted as a Criteria Change Request (CCR). To submit a Criteria Change Request, click on the CCR link next to the document below. If a CCR does not fit cleanly into an existing section, submit a CCR to the section most closely related to the CCR. CCRs are not appropriate when they pertain to a specific project solicitation, request for proposal or after a project award. Questions or interpretations pertaining to these documents or situation should be referred to the Contracting Officer.
