Meridian Portal packages contain documents for the exclusive use of the project members to which the packages are issued. Packages can be used as submittals and transmittals between project teams. A transmittal sheet (Microsoft Excel workbook) is included for package content verification. Packages are also used to exchange documents between Meridian Portal and Meridian Enterprise. Project members can download documents from packages. Meridian Portal assigns a status to each package for each step in its life cycle to make finding, tracking, and processing packages easier.
