PICK A DATE & SIGN UP
A two-day program covering accounting systems in the context of general cost accounting concepts and processes adapted to the specific requirements for contracting with the Federal Government. This course is designed to explain the fundamentals of Government procurement regulatory requirements that affect a Government contractor’s accounting system, with an emphasis on cost accounting by contract. The instruction outlines the components of an acceptable contract cost accounting system in consonance with critical regulations governing those requirements. The instruction also discusses methods for adapting those regulatory requirements into a well-functioning compliant cost accounting system. The course begins with a basic understanding of the Government’s procurement approach, types of contracts, key procurement players, and other information necessary to understand the importance of a cost accounting system. More detailed discussion follows covering requirements for identifying direct costs, pooling and allocating indirect costs, capturing unallowable costs, documenting all processes, and project ledger requirements. One of the unique features of the course is the use of a practical case study which reinforces the application of compliant cost accounting system practices through a hypothetical Government contractor scenario. Fee per person: $1375
