This guidance document addresses cost estimates of remedial alternatives developed during the remedial investigation/feasibility study. The goals of this guidance are to improve the consistency, completeness, and accuracy of cost estimates developed to support the Superfund remedy selection process. To help achieve these goals, the document presents clear procedures and expectations, a checklist of cost elements, and example formats. It also identifies resources for estimating costs during the feasibility study. This guide is designed to help those with varying levels of cost estimating expertise, including cost estimators, design engineers, technical support contractors, remedial project managers, and program managers. This document update and clarifies previous USEPA guidance for developing and documenting remedial alternative cost estimates during the feasibility study. Previous guidance superceded by this document are Chapter 3 of Remedial Action Costing Procedures Manual, October 1987 (EPA/600/8-87/049), and Section 126.96.36.199 of Guidance for Conducting Remedial Investigations and Feasibility Studies under CERCLA-Interim Final, October 1988 (EPA/540/G-89/004).
