Projection issues with DGN file in ArcMap 10.2

I am currently having this problem with two different projects - the designers send me Microstation (DGN) files, and a lot of the time I have problems with them because they either didn't assign a horizontal datum to their files, so they are MIA, or it has a datum that is used less frequently, which isn't a problem once you know what that projection is.

However, with these two projects, the files show up approximately 50 miles southwest of where they are supposed to be. I have the following information about the Microstation files:

Horizontal Datum: NAD83(94)
Vertical Datum: NAVD88
Zone: SPC Georgia East

They also sent me the reference point coordinates from their "control package."

#903 �?? 993374.916N 546984.982E
#904 �?? 993853.380N 547704.008E


If anyone knows what I can do on my end to fix this, please let me know!
