  The Quarterly Price and Cost Indices is a basic 'tool of trade' to anyone involved in estimating, cost checking and fee negotiation on public sector construction works. It includes tender price indices, output price indices, resource cost indices, direct labour output deflators, location and function studies, for indices with an example forecast of variation of price calculation and relational graphs.  
  Construction Price and Cost Indices were recently assessed by the United Kingdom Statistics Authority, who concluded:  
  “The Authority judges that Construction Price and Cost Indices do not sufficiently comply with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics to be published as National Statistics; that substantial further work is required for them to be fully compliant with the Code; and that it is in the public interest that these matters be indicated clearly to users by the temporary removal of the existing designation as National Statistics.  
  A programme of work led by BIS is underway to address the requirements made in this Assessment Report, and that BIS expects to report on their implementation to the Authority in July 2011. After considering BIS' report, the Authority will review the designation of this set of statistics."
