What is Rate Analysis?

    • The basis of arriving at a correct and reasonable rate per unit.work or supply for a particular item following its specification and detail survey of materials, labour, equipment, etc. as required for the unit work, and their prevailing rates may be called as an analysis of rate.
    • The procedure of analyzing the rate per unit of an item has been described.
    • This consists of the following heads:—
      • Quantity of materials required per unit rate of work and its cost delivered at work site including first cost, freight, transportation, sales tax, and insurance charges as artists in question. In case when materials like cement, steel, stone chips, and bitumen are supplied departmentally, then profit on the cost of materials is not allowed, but the cost of carriages from godown to work site shall be added.
      • A number of labour or labour hours required to complete per unit rate of work and its cost.
      • Overhead or equipment and establishment charges required to complete per unit rate of work.
      • Profit while arriving at workable rates, the factors that are to be considered have already been described.
      • In this rate analysis, all civil items consider and all items for different rate analysis sum major rate analysis as per below.
        • Rate Analysis of Earth Work.
        • Rate Analysis of Brick.
        • Rate Analysis of Concrete.
        • Rate Analysis of Plaster.
