My client is a university that asked if they could provide the testing required for products if it's not available from the manufacturers. They are an engineering school, and likely have the means if provided the criteria in the Reference Guide. I'm sure they'd be able to provide reports/results confirming the process and outcomes.
Any thoughts? I don't want the client to feel like they've wasted time if they take the credit criteria to the department for evaluation only to find that GBCI won't allow it.
