Pricing Construction Claims:
Putting the Dollars on the Damages

Learn best practices for preparation, support and pricing of any given claim or change order.

The purpose of pricing a claim is to give the owner a substantive description and detail of the extra costs incurred or to be incurred due to a contract change. The owner or his representative must have this detailed cost description in order to understand, negotiate, and justify extra contract costs.

Pricing of claims is divided into two types: forward pricing — where the price is negotiated before the work is done; and postpricing — pricing during or after performance of the work (e.g., actual costs). In either case, the pricing elements of the claim itself are the same, and include direct cost of performing the changed work, impact and/or delayed performance costs, and markups. There are no magic approaches or secret formulas for the successful pricing of claims. What is important is that the various pricing elements be carefully calculated and substantiated.

In any change order or claim, there are numerous elements of direct costs of doing the extra work, the indirect and overhead costs of the work, and possibly delay and impact costs related to the changes or delays that were incurred.

The consultant team of Don Harrington, Brent McSwain and Rex Snyder of Sage Consulting Group discuss in great detail the various types of costs that may be allowable for any given claim or change order, and what’s involved in the proper preparation, pricing and support of a request for equitable adjustment (REA). This program will review a large range of pricing issues, including:

  • Forward pricing and post pricing
  • Delay and disruption costs – “measured mile,” “total cost” and other methods
  • Acceleration costs – overtime, inefficiency
  • Field overhead, home office overhead and Eichleay
  • Experts and attorney fees
  • And much, much more!

Once entitlement is settled, the amount of the equitable adjustment is essentially a matter of proof of costs. Good records and a thorough understanding of the items of work are more than half the effort in pricing a claim. Assembly of the information, organization of the data, and performance of necessary calculations then follow easily. Since this supporting data are essential for successful negotiations and are subject to audit on larger claims, the contractor is well advised to prepare accurate and complete price proposals.

Attend this informative session to learn arious types of costs for any given claim for your project!
