Question
why do insurances,water and small plant tools fall under a category of Ps&Gs?

Answer
Dear Prudence,

The purpose of Preliminaries/GQ section in BQ is to provide information,particulars, general obligations and liabilities, etc of the project concern to tenderers, who should then price for
the various items provided under this section.

Pricipal of Measurement require us to split costs into two categories:

1. Indirect
2. Direct

Indirect costs are costs incurred not directly linked to the works but have to be recovered by the company in doing the works. The items for the indirect costs are also called as Preliminaries are:

site camp facilities
insurance
bonds
road signs
safety measures
general transport, support or standby equipment
tendering costs
accommodation
salaries, allowances and expenses for supervisory sta
hire of support equipment

Thanks
