Untangling Indirect Rates and Cost Allocations
D03 • Advanced Contracting Concepts & Issues • Intermediate
Where did those costs come from and why should I pay? It’s like pulling on a tangled ball of twine—you don’t know what’s at the end. This session offers a look into cost allocation methodology and reasons why some costs are charged to certain projects and not to others. We discuss the FAR and related Cost Accounting Standards requirements associated with cost allocations and what drives the increase in the indirect rate. Every contracts and program manager from buyer to seller needs to understand how indirect cost impacts their projects and proposals.
Presenters: Darrell Hineman, CPA, CFE, Director, Government Contracting Industry Practice, CohnReznick; Kristen Soles, CPA, Partner, Government Contracting Industry Practice, CohnReznick
Wednesday, July 26, 9:45 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Contract Termination – Not So Convenient
G03 • Advanced Contracting Concepts & Issues • Intermediate
Unfortunately, there are times when a contract must be terminated for either default or convenience. Explore the good, the bad, and the ugly of various types of terminations in light of relevant court cases. Although no two terminations are alike, hear some common practices that every contracting professional and program manager should know to facilitate and expedite settlement.
