He continued, “Most of the time when I’ve run into trouble with an unmet expectation on a project it can be traced back to a poorly defined Level of Accuracy (LOA) or Level of Development (LOD) specification.  Because of this, to reduce my risk, I am now incorporating the U.S. Institute of Building Documentation’s (USIBD) LOA Spec and the BIM Forum’s LOD Spec into my proposals whenever a proper LOA or LOD specification is not present.”
