A Subcontractor was procured to install a fire water line for a material storage facility. Neither the Subcontractor nor the Oversight personnel were aware of the requirements concerning the competent person excavation (CPE) designation. While personnel acting in the role as CPE had been trained, they had not been designated as a CPE according to company procedure.
