Peter Love,


Under a New Zealand public agency’s cost estimation guidelines, a consultancy organization was required to complete an ‘elemental cost questionnaire’ after a project’s final account had been completed so that data could be incorporated into their ‘Elemental Cost Database’ and used to support the production of future estimates of outturn costs. Cost data from 39 transport projects is presented in a SPSS format.
