Alternate Title: Benefit-Cost Analysis Data Documentation Template - Structural Earthquake

"This data documentation template is designed to assist Benefit-Cost (BC) analysts in recording the data and methodologies utilized in their Benefit-Cost Analysis (BCA). BC analysts should keep in mind that a well-documented BCA means that a knowledgeable BC analyst should be able to re-create the BCA from the supporting documentation provided (with a Mitigation application submitted for funding) without any additional explanation. BC analysts should provide an electronic or paper copy of the full BCA to compliment any template or summary submitted to FEMA for review. Check with your State Hazard Mitigation Officer or FEMA Regional office to find out if a completed Data Documentation Template (DDT) is required with your grant application. This data documentation guidance and the Earthquake Full Data Module are intended for BCA of structural seismic mitigation projects for buildings. For non-structural seismic mitigation projects do not use the Full Data Module. Rather, use the Non-Structural Module and see the non-structural data documentation template."
