|PC & PS Excess Mark-up Rate||This is used for the Prime Cost & Provisional Sum Excess Mark-up. This % percentage will apply to the PC & PS items excess of their allowances. The software will calculate the difference over the total allowance of each the PC Total overall and the PS Total overall and if either difference is over their total allowance it will add the extra amount into the next un-Invoiced Progress Payment Claim Stage. However, if the PC & PS amounts are under the original allowances it will credit the client back the difference in the final progress payment claim stage only.
Note: The PC & PS Markup will be distributed into all contributing Cost Schedule Work Groups in the Quote Printout/Report. It is spread proportionately on each contributing Work Group in ratio to its contribution of the Contract Total. This way it makes it impossible for the client to reverse engineer your business markup allowances.
