Resource Highlight: MCAA’s Other Direct Job Costs & Indirect Job Costs

May 5, 2023

Job costs (labor, materials, subcontracts, lift rentals, permits, etc.) are pretty straight forward, but what are “indirect job costs” or “other direct job costs”? Hard hats, fab shop expenses, drill bits, grinding wheels, and company vehicles are all examples of “other direct job costs” (ODJC) and a management system that accounts for and helps you identify and manage these expenses is very important to a successful business. The problem is that there are many types of ODJCs, and tracking them individually, by project, could be very time consuming, require significant resources, and is not necessary.

The bulletin identifies ODJCs and provides some options to assist in managing and understanding these costs.
