APPENDIX/NIBS PROJECT COMMITTEE
E NIBS PROJECT COMMITTEE
In order to obtain input from the building community, NIST issued a contract to the National Institute
of Building Sciences (NIBS) to perform specific tasks related to the development of the guidelines.
NIBS established a project committee to solicit voluntary contributions for consideration in the
preparation of the guidelines, to assess these materials and to review the guidelines as they were
developed. The project committee was formed based on responses to a solicitation sent out by
NIBS in May 1990. The committee was chaired by Billy R. Manning, PE. NIBS also contracted with
five technical experts to conduct detailed reviews of the guidelines. These reviewers were Harry T.
