CAD to GIS without georeferencing?

GIS and/or AutoCAD Users:

Is there any way to get a CAD drawing file to overlay a GIS basemap in the correct geographic location without having to georeference the CAD drawing? It seems that defining a spatial referenceffor the CAD drawing file does not do the trick. Does the person who created the CAD drawing have to assign a geographic coordinate system in AutoCAD? If so, what version of AutoCAD is needed to be able to do that?

 

Thanks for help!
