I guess I would approach it a little more directly. As part of the
delieverables from the consultant, or from the guy you would be getting your
dwg from I would specify that all supporting files, incluyding xref, plt,
pat, pen tables, etc be transmitted with the drawings. That a read me file
be sent with the disk or some how with the drawing that listed all of the
plotting information, and drawing information. This is more important when
you are not working with an agency with an established standards document.
Remember though shall attempt communicaiton with all persons who can mess up
your work. Hopefully the communicaiton will prevent a bigger mess than what
is already there.
