  • Organization costs - external costs (i.e subcontractors, suppliers, external co-workers)
  • Personnel costs - costs of our team members, directly connected to actual project work. The basis for the calculation is hourly fee and number of hours of work.
  • Indirect cost - overheads - calculation based on the calculation mode that is set in cost plan.
