Instructions and Guidance for preparing the Work Plan and Budget

Background
According to RCW 36.78.121, Counties shall annually submit their maintenance plans to the County Road Adminstration Board.
WAC 136-11 provides guidance and information regarding compliance with the Maintenance Management Standard of Good Practice.
The specific requirement for preparation of the Work Program (Plan) and Budget is that it is based upon the road features to be
maintained, the types and amount of maintenance work planned and the costs for the labor, equipment and materials needed
to complete the work.
Preparation of the Work Plan and Budget
In this Excel spreadsheet file, worksheets have been developed to guide preparation of a work plan and budget.
The sample shown in the worksheet follows the typical maintenance management format for a work program and budget.
Note that counties may also use the ouptut of a Maintenance Management System instead of the spreadsheet.
counties use the WinCAMS Maintenance Management module. Preparing a Work Program and Budget from the reports
function of this module satisfies the requirement for a work plan and budget under the standard of good practice.
Counties also have the option of preparing a narrative form of work plan and budget. However, this narrative must include
the inventory of road features maintained, the type and amount of work planned and the costs for labor, equipment and materials,
as required under WAC 136-11, the standard of good practice for maintenance management.

For preparation of the Work Plan and Budget using the spreadsheet provided in this file, select the Interactive Work Plan & Budget
worksheet. Samples of typical maintenance activities are shown on this sheet. (1) Use the activity codes and names that your county
uses on timecards and budget documents. (2) Fill in the quantity of inventory that the work activity is performed on. (3) Fill in
the planned effort level--this identifies how much work (in work units) is planned for each unit of inventory.
From he inventory and effort level, the annual work quantity is calculated. (4) Enter the average daily production and crew size
in the identified columns. (5) Enter the costs per crewday for labor, equipment and materials. A total cost (budget) is calculated.
The spreadsheet also provides a calculation for the percentage of the budget for each activity. See the sample spreadsheet
for guidance on the preparation of the work plan and budget.
A spreadsheet has also be developed that includes a column for the percent of planned work. By entering percentages in this
column, you can see the effects on the budget for planning to do more or less than the planned amount of work.
