Specifications and Estimates / FAQ
Question 1: Who should I contact if a pay item I need is not available?
Contact your District Estimates Office. Unique design situations may require a new or generic pay item. Details of the pay item request process is included in Chapter 6 of the BOE at: http://www.fdot.gov/programmanagement/Estimates/BasisofEstimates/BOEManual/Files/Chapter06.pdf.
Question 2: Where can I find information about archived or obsolete pay items?
The Basis of Estimates is NOT a contract document; archived copies cannot be used for contract disputes. Pay item changes most frequently result from specification or design standard changes. Obsolete pay item information is included in Appendix 2 of the BOE. For detailed pay item history on a specific item, contact the Basis of Estimates Coordinator in the State Specifications and Estimates Office.
Question 3: Where do I find computation book forms?
Comp Book Forms are maintained by the State Construction Office and are available at: http://www.fdot.gov/construction/forms/CompBookForms/CompForms.shtm
Question 4: How can I get a listing of all valid pay items?
The Master Pay Items List is posted monthly on the Specifications and Estimates Office website; a link is displayed on the blue sidebar, under Estimating Systems Support / Basis of Estimates and Pay Item Information. For an up-to-the-minute report, authorized users can run the Master Pay Item List from the Trns∙port Reports on the Webgate.
