Procurement University- Government Contract Accounting and Pricing Foundation - 2020 Series

In this session, we will introduce the students to the federal marketplace, the acquisition process, and the regulatory environment that surrounds it all. We will examine the various procurement vehicles that contractors utilize to fulfill their obligations to the US Government. We will also guide students through contract pricing and cost allowability to protect the interests of both the contractor and the federal government as well as help the contractor recuperate the costs associated with each contract.

A negotiated contract (or procurement) allows the government to select a contractor based on criteria other than solely a formal price competition. The FAR provides guidance for conducting these types of procurements and the contract types that can be used by both the federal government and its contractors (e.g. fixed price, incentive, or cost-reimbursement). In this session, learn how these types of contracts can be both a challenge and an opportunity for contractors and about the extra steps necessary to justify the proposed price.

Procurement University - Commercial Items - 2020 Series

FAR Part 12 regulates commercial item acquisition. Selling a commercial item to the Federal Government sounds easy right? Wrong. The Federal Government wants to make sure it is getting a fair and reasonable price and ensure it is a commercially available item. This session will cover what determines an item or service to be commercial and how to effectively conduct a price analysis.

In this session, we will discuss Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) including both full and modified CAS coverage.  You will learn about each of the standards, applicability, exemptions, and CAS administration issues such as changes to cost accounting practices.

In this session, we will focus on the CAS administration requirements for reporting and documenting the cost impacts of changes to cost accounting practices. To do this, we will take a deeper look into the Disclosure Statement, including its components, applicability, and the process necessary when changes in accounting practice require a disclosure statement revision.

Indirect Costs refer to the cost associated with running the business managing direct projects, but cannot themselves be defined as direct costs (e.g. finance, legal, facilities, IT, fringe benefits).  The Federal Government requires contractors to submit an annual proposal to finalize claimed indirect costs.  In this program, you will learn about indirect rate structures, the Forward Pricing Rate Proposal (FPRP), DCAA’s FPRP Checklist, and the final indirect cost rate proposal process.
