1. General Information

1.1. Application Overview

CEA will replace the Standard DUPA POW Template (SDPT), an excel based application
currently used for estimating cost of Project Components to be implemented. In order
to replace and upgrade the current application and practices incorporated, CEA shall
be an enterprise wide application that will integrate to the other applications used in
the Department.

Multi-Year Programming and Scheduling (MYPS) application supports the DPWH


planning process through storage and management of candidate and approved
Programs, Projects, and Project Components. CEA will tap the MYPS database to obtain
the Project and Project Component related data to be used for the cost estimation
packaging feature.

Design Management Application (DMA) will be the source of data correlated to design,
particularly the Pay Items and Quantities used based on the approved design plans.
However, since DMA is not yet in place, CEA will cover this functionality until such time
DMA has commenced development and is ready for implementation.

For the initial implementation the CEA shall require the import of the approved
Construction Materials Price Data (CMPD) based on the reviewed and evaluated data
extracted from the Construction Cost Information System (CCIS). In order to update
the libraries of CEA, this business process shall be added into the process owners’
scope of operations in order to sustain the usefulness of CCIS.

CEA shall provide the Bill of Quantities (BOQ) that was produced together with the
approved ABC to proceed with the procurement process.

1.2. Application References

The application complies with the Guidelines and Procedures on Cost Estimation and
Cost Estimation Manuals about the Department’s standard process on the Cost
Estimation Process.

1.3. Points of Organizational Contact

This section covers the points of organizational contact (POCs) that may be needed by
the document user for informational, procedural, and technical purposes.

1.3.1. Information

The Bureau of Construction, Pre-Construction Division (BOC – PCD) being the


application owner, serves as the official source of information relating to the CEA
process and the application. Document user shall inform CEA BOC – PCD
concerning any information about the process and application.
