Therefore, it is necessaty to illustrate that if there is any in BOQ that would directly affect the base of the construction projects. As a result, alt extremely higher concern on those three aspects, as during preparation stage and error stakeholders involved in a project have having an error free BOQ is vitally important. Errors can occur pricing stage of the BOQ. Further, to minimize BOO errors it is important to have a clear understanding on the errors which occur most frequently during preparing and pricing stages oja BOO. Therefore, this research study is focused to identify the common errors that are being made in preparing BOQ in Sri Lankan construction industry. A literature survey was carried out o identify the importance and common errors of BOQ during preparation and pricing BOQ in construction industry and this paper presented the findings of it. The survey revealed the importance of BOQ in post contract stage as well as in pre contract stage. Moreover this research has identified the errors which occurred during preparation and pricing stages of Q separate y, and the reasons for those errors. This would then lead to establish a mechanism to either to eradicate or minimize errors in BOQ preparation and pricing within the construction ndustry and important and reliable document in the industry. an hence facilitate to sustain the BOQ as an en_US
