3) Location of office in which the work will be performed.
4) Type of work anticipated to be sub-contracted or performed by a sub consultant.
5) Indication of whether a cost accounting system has been maintained and is in effect such that it is capable of segregating and identifying accumulating costs for each job that is performed under cost type projects.

In such instances, a company computed overhead rate may be utilized.
