All government contractors start with the basic cost pools of Fringe, Overhead, and G&A. As businesses grow, they often identify the need for more granular indirect rates to better align costs with their drivers. Government contractors must develop indirect rates generally following a prescribed format and regulations provide most clear guidance on the allowability of costs. The timing and complexity of advanced indirect rate structures is at the contractor’s discretion, but most begin making changes as competition increases.
This course addresses the composition of each cost pool and the allocation methods allowable for distributing those costs to customer jobs or projects. We’ll describe the reasons for advanced indirect rate structures and the pitfalls of making changes.
Learn how to:
- Identify the common cost pools utilized by government contractors.
- Identify the need for complex indirect rate structures.
- Understand the intermediate and advanced cost pools.
