Building a Better Way: Federal Construction Estimating

Gordian commissioned new secondary research by Government Business Council to examine the current state of federal cost estimation, uncover common challenges to developing a reliable cost estimate and identify the most efficient ways to overcome those obstacles, packaged into an easily digestible report.

Following the publication, we presented the findings in a panel discussion with experts from the Government Accountability Office (GAO), the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and Government Business Council. These experts shared their firsthand insight into why these challenges matter and what opportunities exist to prevent federal project overruns moving forward.

We’ve also curated a variety of informative and instructional resources to help you turn these insights into action, including:

  • How to collaborate with industry to better estimate your construction projects.
  • Why accurate cost estimates are a matter of national security.
  • How to de-risk future uncertainties.
  • Why and how to follow best practices outlined in the GAO Cost Estimating and Assessment Guide.
  • What opportunities exist to overcome common challenges.
