given in the description box (Eg: Appendix A, Building Proper, etc). The specification to be
used for preparing the estimate shall be selected from the combo. For each specification,

Use the “New” button the RHS to create a new OD. OD can be created as New or copied
from existing OD or existing specification. The created ODs will be available for further use
of the creator. Others can see this OD only when this file is once forwarded. They can use
this OD by creating a template of this estimate. Approved ODs of PWD, LSGD, Irrigation,
Harbour and Mechanical are added as chapters in the Specification window.
5) Three types of prints can be generated – Abstract, General and Detailed by clicking the
“Abstract” button.
6) To forward the created file to other officers click the “Forward/ Approval” tab. Select “For

opened from the inbox and viewed. For editing the file, click the “Click here to edit the file”
button. The “File History” tab can be perused to get the details of the officers who have
seen the file. The “Notes” section gives the notes written by each officer in an office. An
