Does the ASHRAE Level I audit have to be completed within the two-year performance period for an initial certification?

There doesn’t appear to be any guidance on this question one way or another in the LEED Reference Guide. It seems likely that an audit completed within the five years prior to the performance period end date would be acceptable, as this was the case in LEED 2009. But until we get an official precedent on this, it may make sense to verify with GBCI at the project onset (and tell us what you learned in the forum below).
