Basis of Estimates Manual- ARCHIVE
Please read notice below before using the archive.
The Basis of Estimates is updated throughout the year. Selected major updates are available below, valid as of the publication dates shown. Individual pay items may have effective letting dates, due to coordination with specifications, standards, or other documents. For additional history of changes, contact the Basis of Estimates Coordinator in the State Program Management Office.
The Basis of Estimates is not a contract document. The BOE is intended to assist designers with selection, estimation, and documentation of pay items. While every effort has been made to coordinate guidance with the Design Standards, Plans Preparation Manual, and applicable handbooks, the designer is responsible selecting the appropriate pay items, based on on project conditions. Refer to the contract documents (plans, specifications, and other legal documents) for all construction questions and contractual issues. Refer to the Introduction and Chapter 6 for additional information regarding the use of the BOE and specific pay item details.
