Commissioning Systems Selection Matrix

The following table is used to determine which Systems and Items are to be commissioned for the various building types GSA delivers. Column 1 is the Commissioned System. Column 2 is the Item Included within that system. Columns 3 through 7 are the five major Building Types GSA provides our customers. If a dot appears in the box under the building type, then the item in column 2 must be commissioned for that building type.
