What is a Transmittal?
A Transmittal, in the construction industry, is an important communication tool used for conveying information related to the project. It serves as a formal method of passing on documents, drawings, or other relevant materials from one party to another. This tangible exchange of information ensures accountability, as each transmittal contains critical details such as the date of issue, sender and receiver's information, description of content, and necessary actions. It’s crucial for record-keeping and tracking the project's progress as it highlights if and when information was shared and acknowledged. Void of this, miscommunication and disputes may arise impacting project outcomes.
