Establishing Initial Budget for Commissioning

• Based upon the Preliminary Commissioning Plan, the GSA owner Project Manager includes budgetary costs for commissioning in the Feasibility Study and the Program Development Study. It is critical that the overall established budget, which is submitted for funding approval, contains necessary monies for commissioning.

• Specifically, Feasibility Study and Program Develo­pment Study deliverables per the owner’s Project Plan­ning Guide call for estimated construction costs (ECC) and estimated total project costs (ETPC). These esti­mates must include line items for both commissioning services and testing.
