escalation.

FV = future value

PV = present value

TV = today's value

d

= real discount rate

e

= real growth escalation rate (the differential escalation rate that exists

after removing the influence of general inflation)

n

= number of years to occurrence or the analysis period, as appropriate

E

= Budgetary Escalation

I

= Inflation Rate

UPW = Uniform Present Worth factor for fixed recurring costs

UPW* = Modified Uniform Present Worth factor for escalating recurring costs
