DCAA Training – Pricing Series – Part 1

November 6 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


    • Elements of an Adequate Proposal
    • Indirect Costs and Rates

Proposals are contractor prepared packages made in response to government solicitations and include the contractor’s budgeted costs for the projected period of performance of the solicitation.  Experts from DCAA will discuss the requirements of these proposal packages set forth in FAR Part 15 and DFARS 252.215-7009.  The training will walk participants through proposal cost elements, including direct labor, material, subcontracts, ODCs, and indirect rates.  The DCAA will also discuss how the agency determines the adequacy of your proposal submission.  Additionally, the DCAA will provide examples of budgeting practices using historical data considerations, examples of adequacy non-compliances, and regulatory resources to assist with proposal development.


Not sure how to build your indirect rates?  Experts from DCAA will define direct versus indirect costs, what general indirect rate structures look like, and the relationship between indirect pools and bases.  Additionally, the DCAA will discuss the life cycle of indirect rates, then build example indirect rates using the four-step method in allocating indirect costs to Government Contracts.
