As a DOT, your estimate needs to be as close as possible to what contractors will bid. This is where the 80/20 rule comes in. When estimating, 80 percent of your cost comes from 20 percent of your items (and vice versa).
ProEstimate.NET takes care of your cost-based estimating and covers those large, high dollar items that makeup 80 percent of your cost. Furthermore, ProEstimate.NET you can define labor, equipment, and materials. You can also see what a crew will look like, use hauling and trenching worksheets, and adjust fuel prices.
For historical based estimating, BidTabs.NET is perfect for those smaller items that make up 20 percent of your cost. Our vast historical pricing data, NHCCI adjustment ability, and categorized pay items make BidTabs.NET a must-have for DOTs.
