Contract Price Escalation
As a benefit to SAFCEC members, indices used in the industry's escalation formula are monitored, collated and published on a monthly basis.

These are sourced from StatsSA and are not calculated by SAFCEC. SAFCEC uses publications from Statistics South Africa (StatsSA) to populate the indices. These are sourced from: -
  • P0141 - Consumer Price Index (CPI) Table;
  • P0141 - Consumer Price Index (CPI) Additional Tables; and
  • P0151 - Contract Price Adjustment Provisions (CPAP) Work Groups and Selected Materials Indices
Additional resources are also available for download, such as: -
  • Basket of Goods for Mixed Indices;
  • CPAF Coefficient Guidelines;
  • Escalation Formula in General Conditions of Contract (GCC);
  • 2015 GCC CPAF Formula;
  • 2010 GCC CPAF Formula
