We prepared the RFP (or bridging documents) for a design-build project. The owner would like us to commission the project, possibly even doing Enhanced Commissioning.

The contractor's engineering firm will be the engineer of record. Table 2 of EAp1 uses the qualification "disinterested employee of engineer". Two paragraphs above the table it says, "...have responsibility for design (e.g., be the engineer of record)..." Does this mean that the "engineer" is only the engineer of record? As AE-1 are we separate enough from the design to be the CxA?

It seems like one of our employees who has not worked on the project could do fundamental commissioning. Could this person do enhanced? Could a person on the team that did the RFP do fundamental and/or enhanced?
