Project Information and Cost Estimation (PRICE) is a total solution for estimate preparation and online approval. It is developed for the Public Works Department, Kerala. PRICE, for NH wing, is based on CPWD Schedule of Rates, MoRTH Specification, MoRTH Data Book and cost index applicable for the project location. Central Public Works Department, Government of India (CPWD) releases the revised version of Analysis of Rates and Schedule of Rates every year. For every state, CPWD publicises Cost index to get a normalised rate for the project site for preparing the estimates. Initially the software was developed based on Delhi Schedule of Rates (DSR) 2012 which was later updated to DSR 2013. PRICE was developed with provision to dynamically generate a schedule of rates as and when new DSR is published by the CPWD and presently, estimates are preparing based on 2014 DSOR. Facilities for preparation of estimates, online submission of estimates to higher offices, Administrative Sanction, Technical Sanction, maintaining A.S. and T.S. registers, preparation of BOQ and preparation of Local Market Rate Justification estimate are available in the software.
