Can we provide helpful hints and defined values to help the grant applicant develop complete and accurate cost estimates? At present. For this reason. many applicants submit BCAs with project costs that are incomplete. FEMA Headquarters has requested that additional guidance be provided to assist applicants with the preparation of complete and well-documented project costs as part of the BCAR initiative. wind. In response to this problem. Specifically. 1 . As a result. Specifically. or poorly documented. Introduction: Problem Statement The BCA modules were developed to calculate project benefits and project costs as part of the effort to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of proposed hazard mitigation projects. While the estimating methodology is applicable to additional hazards and project types. However. The methodology report is part of a larger effort to re-engineer the FEMA BCA methods. What are the acceptable sources of data for the mitigation project cost estimates? 4. Should contingencies and allowances for change orders be accounted for in project cost estimates? 3. earthquake. and wildfire) and two to five project types per hazard. and are not applicable to the majority of mitigation projects being considered. as shown in Table 1. including structural and non-structural mitigation alternatives. sample scope items. the URS BCA team has been asked to address 16 specific mitigation project cases comprised of five hazards (flood. since project benefits are more difficult to determine than project costs. What is an appropriate level of detail to be included in a mitigation project cost estimate? 5.Purpose This Benefit-Cost Analysis Re-engineering (BCAR) report is provided for use by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to review and approve the recommended methodology to provide project cost guidance for the FEMA benefit-cost analysis (BCA) modules.

Guidance on how to develop a complete estimate is presented in the 16 hazard/mitigation project type flow charts and sample estimates provided in Appendices A and B. An overall estimating approach that walks the users through a six step process designed to help account for construction and non-construction related costs associated with a mitigation project.

This Handout will provide guidance to assist in the preparation of an effective scope of work and will assist the preparer in the identification and collection of the cost information needed to use the BCA module.

Once these specific work elements are defined they can be translated into work element descriptions for which quantities and unit prices can be estimated. and project owners. This information is copyrighted and users typically purchase the right to use their information. dynamic help screens. Developing an estimate of pre-construction or non-construction costs 2.

Note that these historical costs should be escalated to ensure current pricing. and D offer guidance and suggestions as to typical work elements associated with the various mitigation measures. but detailed costs estimates should be used when submitting project applications for funding approvals. and input boxes to walk users through the six steps associated with developing a complete cost estimate for their mitigation project. the estimate should be updated to reflect current pricing. and scope builder tables provided in Appendices A. 3. Developing an estimate of annual maintenance costs 4 . Preliminary estimates are applicable for initial project screening or scoping. but most estimates fall into the following categories: 1. Contractor Bids or estimates for completing a specific scope of work or project are typically completed at the time of the bid and account for inflation over the course of the project. This six-step process outlined below follows the user’s selection of a hazard and mitigation strategy and consists of: 1. Those resources are not intended to be all inclusive. Note that these published cost sources are regularly updated and if the estimate is prepared using old unit price information. Developing an estimate of ancillary costs 4. State hazard mitigation officers. building officials. B. Historical Costs for completing the similar projects can be obtained from local contractors. Published unit price information for defined work elements can be obtained from commercial estimating sources such as RS Means and Marshall & Swift.Section 1: Cost Estimating Methodology – Programming and User Overview The critical part of developing an accurate cost estimate is having a defined scope of work that itemizes the specific work elements (tasks) that will be accomplished as part of the mitigation project. An estimate can be developed in a variety of ways. 2. and each mitigation project may have different and unique elements that must be included in the scope of work and cost estimate. Developing an estimate of construction costs 3. sample estimates. The cost estimating portion of the BCA methodology shall use a step by step process of simple inquiries. The accuracy of each of these estimates will vary according to the level of detail in the scope of work and work elements to be estimated.

users will be queried to ensure that the estimate includes applicable construction markups and that it reflects current pricing.5. if a completed estimate is input (rather than built). users will be prompted to input a completed estimate. they will follow the six-step process outlined above as they develop their project cost estimate. If it does not include those items. verify that a detailed scope of work has been developed. The initial cost estimation screen will pre-populate the project and structure names and the mitigation option will be displayed for reference. 5 . Depending on the answers to the above questions. users will be led through a process of adding them to their previously completed estimate. explanation/justification. and upload their file or they will be directed to the estimating tool. Each step in that process is explained and illustrated in the following paragraphs. Adjusting the estimate to account for project timing and currency of the data used in the estimate 6. an explanation of their estimating approach. Once users have selected the option of developing a detailed cost estimate. Prior to entering the cost estimation portion of the BCAR tool. At this point users will be asked to: • • • verify the project’s useful life in years. and their estimate file (spreadsheet). Reviewing and confirming the cost estimate At any time during this process users can input a previously completed estimate. This process is presented in screen shot CE1 of the BCAR cost estimating storyboard shown in Appendix C. and answer whether or not a detailed cost estimate has already been developed for the project. As noted in screen shots CE2 and CE3 of the storyboard. users will have chosen a hazard mitigation strategy and defined a mitigation project type for a specific structure.

This process is presented in screen shot CE2b of the BCAR cost estimating storyboard shown in Appendix C. the column format is consistent across all six steps. For example. Each template has a description of the work element. Step 2: Developing an Estimate of Construction Costs In this section. Pre-construction costs are also called non-construction costs and may include those non-construction costs an owner incurs in the planning. followed by a box to check the source of the unit pricing used (i. transaction and legal fees. utility disconnections. historical data. the quantity and unit associated with each work element. users will be asked to develop an estimate of all pre-construction costs associated with the mitigation project.. and the cost of professional services needed for environmental or engineering assessments and/or managing the process. In all cases. the column format is consistent across all six steps. flexibility is built into the cost estimating tool to allow users to input specific work elements that are applicable to their mitigation project rather than use the default line items that were developed for each of the 16 mitigation project types. flexibility is built into the cost estimating tool to allow users to input specific work elements that are applicable to their mitigation project rather than use the default line items that were developed for each of the 16 mitigation project types. “Hard” construction costs are costs associated with the actual physical altering of the property or structure.

The recommended escalation factors are provided in the following table. The 5-year average annual escalation used in this step is based on index values from December 2002 to December 2007. the issue is the length of time between when the estimate was developed and the start/completion of construction. With regard to the current pricing question. materials. Estimates are typically escalated to the midpoint of construction to account for the inflation that will occur over the project lifecycle (design. the users can select a proxy value that will be included in the mitigation project estimate. the users will be asked to develop an estimate of the annual maintenance costs necessary for the proper and effective implementation of the mitigation project and to identify the number of years maintenance will be required (which is typically the project useful life). and construction). Step 4: Developing an Estimate of Annual Maintenance Costs The cost of maintaining mitigation measures is often not accounted for in mitigation cost estimates. The software will calculate the escalation according to the methodology described in the following paragraphs. was the estimate prepared using current pricing data and second. was the estimate escalated to the midpoint of construction to account for anticipated inflation in labor. The escalation is based on a computed 5-year annual building construction escalation rate for each FEMA Region based on Engineering News Record “Building Cost Index” for cities within each region. The software will then calculate the present worth of the annual maintenance costs and add that value to the project cost. the cost basis year. Step 5: Adjusting Your Estimate to Account for Project Timing In this section. and equipment over the term of the construction project. the users will be asked if the estimate reflects current prices. historical data must be escalated to today’s values and published data may vary based on the date of the published source. users will be asked if their estimate reflects current prices and if not. As noted in the screen shots. it should be included in the cost estimate. In this section. they will be asked to input information on the type of construction project.This process is presented in the BCA Tool screen shot shown in Appendix C. the construction start year and the construction end year. First. If maintenance is required for the proper and effective implementation of the mitigation measure. Price currency is a function of two separate issues. As noted in screen CE3 of the storyboard (Appendix C).
