Fixed Price Services

Fixed Price Services


Fixed Price Services provides a means by which customers can quickly obtain pricing information for some of the most commonly requested types of work. It gives departments the ability to budget for the job without requesting and waiting for estimates and allows Facilities Management to route the work request straight to its various Trade Shops for completion.


Pricing of the work packages were determined using Facilities Management's extensive historical database of thousands of previously completed work. The pricing gives an accurate assessment of what the costs are to do the work in the ever-changing and challenging environment of the Health Science Center.


These are billed at a set rate, require no design effort, and can be expedited through the system. These services have a set scope of work and are not flexible in dealing with changing requirements.


Fixed Price work requests are typically accomplished during normal business hours. If the work is required to be completed during after-hours, the cost of the billable work will be adjusted to reflect actual costs.

Program Study
  A Program Study is a concise, quick study that will identify the scope of work for a project based upon customer input and a brief interview with the customer. A sketch of the project location showing the intended work items along with a bulleted scope of work will be prepared. A cover letter from Facilities Management will give a range estimate based upon historical costs and can be used as a budgeting number.


Once the programming study is completed, the work order will be closed. Estimates will be representative for the scope of work presented and are good for 90 days.


Once the customer procures funding and is committed to proceeding with the project, the customer will submit a new work order using the program study work order as a reference. A full design will be prepared along with an accurate line-item estimate for the customers' review and approval. All costs associated with design services once the project has been resubmitted are fully billable to the department.
