This user’s manual and accompanying software present a second-generation benefit-cost model for the seismic rehabilitation of federal and other government buildings.The benefit-cost methodology provides facility managers, design professionals, and other decision makers with estimates of the benefits of seismic rehabilitation and the estimated costs needed to implement rehabilitation.The methodology also generates detailed scenario estimates of damages, losses, and casualties. A tutorial and benefit-cost analyses of eight federal buildings are included. Alternative benefit-cost software and related technical assistance is available through FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program (www.fema.gov/government/grant/bca.shtm#1). Additional information about benefit-cost analysis related to natural hazard mitigation is available in the report entitled Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: An Independent Study to Assess the Future Savings from Mitigation Activities (www.nibs.org/MMC/mmcactiv5.html).
