Preparing the Incurred Cost Proposal

Dec 08 2020 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Registration link: https://govology.com/product/preparing-the-incurred-cost-proposal/  Enter code VetBiz2020 to get instruction free.

An Incurred Cost Proposal reconciles actual costs incurred with amounts billed against each contract. Contractors performing work on flexibly priced contracts (T&M and cost-type) must submit an incurred cost proposal (ICP) within 6 months of the close of their fiscal year. A completed ICP provides the contractor with their claimed rates which, when approved, become final indirect rates for the period in question. This webinar will focus on the requirements for submitting an ICP, the importance of timely reconciliation and review the strategies and best practices for successful preparation and completion of your ICP.

He’ll also discuss affiliation—a crucial topic for small businesses that, if found, can turn your small business large!  After attending this webinar, you will learn:  How the SBA calculates size under a receipts-based and employee-based NAICS code; How the NAICS code impacts the size requirements;   The common ways the SBA finds an affiliation between companies; and How to guard yourself against affiliation.
