# Estimate At Completion

Money

Estimate At Completion (EAC) is a forecast of the most likely total project cost based on the project's performance and risk quantification. It provides stakeholders with an idea of the expected final cost of the project.

## Formula

EAC = Actual Cost (AC) + Bottom-Up Estimate to Complete (ETC)

## Example

If a project has spent $50,000 so far and the remaining work is estimated to cost $200,000, the EAC is $250,000.
