Pricing of services
Work performed by Facilities Management on a reimbursable basis is billed in one of two ways:
- At-cost – majority of work is billed on an at-cost basis. This is a total charge determined by the recovery rates of the labor, materials and tools used to accomplish the work.
- Fixed-price – construction and selected types of work requests are billed on a fixed-price basis. A firm proposal is made based on work cost estimates. If proposal is accepted, Facilities Management will complete the work for the fixed-price amount, regardless of actual costs. Any changes to the scope of the work, the plans and specifications, or the conditions of work made after the acceptance of the proposal will be acknowledged by an approved written change order amending the original work order and the fixed-price agreement.
