The proposed engineering, design, construction administration, and other “soft costs” were found ineligible because the public agency failed to provide sufficient information to allow the FAA to determine eligibility. Finally, the public agency listed “contingencies and escalation for inflation” in its PFC application however, these types of costs are not PFC-eligible.
