This assumes that you are considering outsourcing your manuals. If you want to cost for compiling them in-house then it’ll depend upon the knowledge and abilities of the personnel, the time that is allocated to them and the project information listed below.
As mentioned on the other pages, there is no such thing as a standard O&M Manual. Manuals reflect the size, value and complexity of the project and the associated O&M Manual specification, so costs vary accordingly.
We will be able to give a rough idea of the cost of producing a manual if we are given the following information:
- A brief scope of works or job spec (so we can gauge how much work is involved)
- The number of subcontractors (so we know how many people we have to chase)
- The contract value (a safeguard to make sure we’re not miles out on our pricing)
- The start and finish dates (so we know how long we have to do it)
