DE2: Employer’s Information Requirements

DE2, part of CIBSE’s Digital Engineering Series, is intended for those that create, complete and review Employer's Information Requirements documents. A free-to-all template associated with DE2 is available, and is intended to help users put theory into practice.

DE2 is based on PAS 1192-2:2013, which provides specific guidance on the information management requirements of projects delivered using BIM. PAS 1192-2 is one of the documents included within the government mandate for the adoption of Level 2 BIM for central government procured contracts.
 
The Employer’s Information Requirements document is created at the beginning of the capital phase of a project, and sets out the client requirements in detail, supplemented by questions for potential members of the supply team to respond to in the form of a BIM Execution Plan (BEP). These documents are intended to establish a clear basis for the information exchanges between the employer and the supply chain, which should make the exchanges more meaningful and help the employer to make decisions based on well-structured information.
