Remedial Action Cost Engineering and Requirements (RACER)

The Remedial Action Cost Engineering and Requirements (RACER) software is a Windows-based environmental remediation/corrective action cost-estimating system. RACER is Commercial off-the-Shelf (COTS) software developed and maintained by AECOM. RACER plays a major role in the Air Force Environmental Liabilities estimating process.

The RACER software quickly and accurately estimates costs for all phases of environmental remediation projects—from site investigation through site closeout. The system enables users to develop and update cost estimates, evaluate and compare the cost of various treatment options, quantify environmental liability for budgeting or regulatory/financial disclosures, and develop a consistent approach for project budgeting.
