Unless this is a very complicated, muti-discipline project with a lot of logic between the various tasks, Primavera is a dramatic overkill. Many public agencies "blindly" make this a request without really looking at the true value that this is bringing to the project. Primavera makes a less sophisticated (and less costly) product, Suretrack. This is easier to use, cheaper, and can be merged into a Primavera schedule. You may want to suggest this as an alternate. Good Luck!
