Historical Cost Analysis System

The content on this page is currently minimally managed and may be outdated..


Historical Cost Analysis System (HCAS) is a PC-based stand-alone system which is used to collect and store historical cost data for Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste (HTRW) remedial action projects. Project costs are stored in the program using the Remedial Action Work Breakdown Structure (RAWBS).

HCAS does not produce cost estimates, but is used to obtain historical remedial action cost information for comparison or programming purposes. The current database contains award costs for over 60 remedial action projects. Remedial action costs are collected and grouped in HCAS primarily by the HTRW RAWBS. The user may search the database by using the query function and specifying the type of media, type of contaminant, and type of technology. The search can also be narrowed by additional criterion such as contract types, geographic location, award date, HTRW RAWBS, etc. Project cost can be printed or exported to other programs.
