A 2-day, 4-session Virtual Course on the Incurred Cost Submission. Government contractors subject to an Allowable Cost and Payment contract clause must submit an adequate incurred cost proposal together with supporting data for each fiscal year within six months after the end of those fiscal years.

Avoiding Commercial Item DeficienciesAvoiding Commercial Item DeficienciesTime: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
In response to prior year NDAAs, the DCMA formed the Commercial Item Group (CIG) in 2016 to satisfy congressional intent. One of the primary purposes of the CIG is to scrutinize and evaluate the Commercial Item Determinations (CID) generated by contractors. Many contractors believe determining a product or service as a commercial item was as simple as checking a box on a form and filing it away. However, the DMCA and its CIG analysts have an ever-increasing focus on the “adequacy” of the supporting CID documentation. As a contractor in today’s environment, if you fail to adequately analyze and support your CIDs, you may be determined to have a significant deficiency in your CID process and practice which could lead to a disapproved purchasing system and trigger additional audits of your business systems. This virtual course will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of the CID process and our experts will help advise attendees on the most successful strategies, methodologies, and lessons learned to assist in bulletproofing your CIDs. What you will learn:
How to determine a product or service is a commercial item
Understand the supporting documentation for commercial item classification
How to avoid deficiencies in CID
Properly documenting commercial item practices
Developing adequate analysis supporting your claim
This live virtual course is eligible for both CLE and CPE credit.
