to be queried


Explanation:
this reads to me as if someone is evaluating some sort of proposal and advises, that the "level of the base costs is hardly querying" (beanstandet, kritisiert)...

the basis of these basic costs can hardly be questioned


Explanation:
I read Ansatz to mean the basis of. It sounds pretty bad to then follow with basic costs but that's the meaning. You might want to find another term (from your context) for Grundkosten. Problematisieren is to question, to place doubt on something.
