  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) July 28, 2011 - BOEMax, ProjStream's proposal pricing software suite, has recently met Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). BOEMax was released on June 14th, 2011 with a positive reception due to its enhanced flexibility and integration capabilities. BOEMax, a basis of estimate and pricing software, enables government contractors to meet FAR compliance regulations related to estimating pricing. BOEMax comes in 2 versions, BOEMax for Deltek Cobra and BOEMax standalone. BOEMax was designed with an easy to use interface that aligns with change control in mind by allowing the team members to intuitively select the correct "bucket" for changes.

    The purpose of BOEMax is to streamline the project life-cycle by helping contractors build basis of estimates and pricing, and then flowing this data to the schedule as well as keeping cost and schedule in synch.

    BOEMax comes shipped with canned reports. There are cost reports by WBS, CLIN, BOM pricing reports, pricing by resource and detailed cost reports (i.e. WBS / Work Package / Resource / Hours / Cost). These reports were developed with DCAA oversight and FAR regulations in mind. Continuous work is done closely with DCAA to develop DCAA friendly reports, as well as expand functionality into dashboard capabilities.

    Federal Acquisition Regulations are a principal set of rules that were created by the Federal Acquisition Regulation System.

    According to Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 15.4 - (

    Contract Pricing, Breakdowns must be provided for the following basic cost elements, as applicable:

    A. Materials and Services (Adequate price competition and all other)
    B. Direct Labor
    C. Indirect Costs
    D. Other Costs (special tooling, travel, consultant services, packaging, etc.)
    E. Royalties
    F. Facilities Capital Cost of Money

    Additionally there are contract change control, amendment or claims tracking transactional procedures that can become quite complex. BOEMax helps manage these transactional contract amendments.

    With FAR requirements fulfilled, BOEMax clients benefit from the approval of the United States Government regarding its use.

    "We designed BOEMax to be an easy to use interface that team members and engineers can collaborate on project estimates with the proposal and project manager," says Tom Shanahan of ProjStream. "BOEMax also serves as a tool that will aid contractors in maintaining compliance with proposal pricing regulations and contract modification, change order and claims tracking."
