NRCS NATIONAL ENGINEERING HANDBOOK (NEH) PART 642, SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS

NEH Part 642 is a complete replacement for National Engineering Handbook Section 20.  These specifications are used primarily for PL-566 projects, Dam Rehabilitation projects, and other larger (non-CO-01) projects.

View and Download the current Part 642 CONSTRUCTION and MATERIAL specifications as well as the Instructions for Using these specifications.  The above link will take you to the NRCS e-Directives web site.  Once there, from the left side menu, select "Handbooks".  Then from the list on the right, expand (by clicking on the + sign) Title 210- Engineering; then expand National Engineering Handbook; then select Part 642- Specifications for Construction Contracts.  When that screen opens, there are three choices: Chapter 1- General Contract Specification Procedures; Chapter 2- National Standard Construction Specifications; and Chapter 3- National Standard Material Specifications.
