Information transport systems (ITS) association BICSI signed an “honorary friendship agreement” with Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) to promote further growth and development of the ITS and telecom industries, it says. The official agreement was signed in March by BICSI president Edward J. Donelan and CSI president Gilman K. M. Hu.

“Telecommunications systems have become an increasingly important
component of today’s commercial and institutional buildings, connecting
the world like never before,” said Hu. “CSI recognized this trend in
developing MasterFormat 2004 edition, which includes a separate
division for communications: Division 27. We look forward to
cooperating with BICSI on advancing the telecommunications industries
and working together on mutual interests.”

BICSI has signed similar friendship agreements with INFOCOMM (2005),
Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA, 2006 and 2008), and
National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association (NBFAA, 2009).
