An authoritative source for a lot of this sort of estimating stuff is JoAnn Hackos' book, Managing Your Documentation Projects, John Wiley & Sons, 1994, ISBN 0471590991.

I don't recall what percentage she suggested, and of course, not everyone agrees with whatever it was she says, but the book is a good starting point.

My company got involved with software consulting last year. They are still working with time frames and I need to argue how much time is needed for documentation. I have read that, on average, one should dedicate 10% of consultant costs to documentation. However I don't know where to prove this claim. Can anyone point me to something that either proves this argument, or provides information related to this topic?
