Such quantities can be priced either from historical data derived from priced contracts as indicated above, or from published databases of rates, or by 24 Civil engineering: supervision and management compiling rates from basic costs for labour, plant and materials plus overheads. 4 In practice often a combination of these methods is required, with care needed to ensure that rates and prices are reasonable by checking a result obtained by one method against the result obtained by another. 12 Project cost control It is during the design stage that measures to keep the cost of a project within a budget figure are most effective.

Contractual arrangements 29 ICE: 'The New Engineering Contract' (NEC) This is a novel form of contract introduced for consultation by a committee of the ICE in 1991 after extensive research, and then much revised in 1993. It is offered as an alternative to the ICE Conditions, but has not yet been proved by extensive experience. An NEC contract is formed from: • contract data; • the core clauses; and • the option clauses. g. g. bill of quantities, target, cost reimbursement, or management, and there are secondary option clauses for things such as bonus, and price variation.

Schedules are provided to enter the main contractual data. The conditions can be successfully used for larger works, but the standard ICE Conditions cover many more of the potential problems that could occur. Payment arrangements are left open, but are suitable for a single lump sum bid or priced bill of quantities. ICE Design and Construct Conditions These conditions were newly produced in 1992, so there is little experience of their working; though design and construct contracts are not new. The conditions repeat many of the ICE Conditions, but are written with the following principal differences: • The contractor is required to undertake the design of some or all of the permanent works as well as undertaking construction of all the works.
