Because of the complexity of government cost accounting rules, dealings with the federal government differ greatly from standard commercial business practices. Accordingly, all professionals involved with government contracts need a basic understanding of the cost accounting requirements that affect these contracts. This seminar provides participants with a brief introduction to the accounting for costs at each step of contract performance, from bidding to closeout. The seminar will cover the cost allowability requirements of FAR Part 31, the Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA), and methods of cost allocability. In addition, the seminar will address commercial item acquisitions and the impact of procurement reform and streamlining.
