With increased government oversight, rigorous DCAA audits, mandatory disclosure rules, troubling cases on disallowed costs and the resurgence of TINA enforcement concerns, the stakes have never been higher for U.S. Government contractors. Coupled with the Obama administration’s tightened defense and other spending, your organization cannot afford critical cost and pricing missteps.
U.S. Government agencies are increasing their scrutiny of cost and pricing data at the pre-and post-award phases. DCAA has also taken an increasingly rigorous approach to assessing compliance, including the adequacy of contractors’ internal control systems. Given recent changes, it is critical to revisit your strategy for preparing, managing and surviving DCAA audits – before it’s too late.
With the heightened risks of staggering liability under the False Claims Act, and the growing threats of suspension, debarment and more, you cannot afford to miss American Conference Institute’s Advanced Forum on “Government Contract Cost & Pricing”. Unlike other training events, this advanced forum – developed through research with U.S. Government contractors – will feature an impressive faculty of government officials, leading contractors and private practice experts, who will address the most critical cost and pricing issues that can make or break your business. You will gain the latest updates and practical insights on how to stay out of trouble – and refine your cost and pricing strategy.
Practical sessions will include:
-Managing DCAA auditors’ requests for data and employee interviews, and responding to their audit findings
-Determining the allowability of legal fees, IR & D, termination and M & A costs
-Assessing your potential exposure under the False Claims Act, and the threats of suspension, debarment and more
-Deciding when to disclose cost and pricing issues under the FAR Mandatory Disclosure rules, and how DCAA is assessing contractor ethics programs
-Meeting DCAA expectations for an “adequate” internal control system and what to do if your program is deemed “inadequate”
-Complying with complex TINA requirements to prevent defective pricing liability
-Pricing “reasonableness”, and managing pre- and post-award government scrutiny
-Minimizing the risks of price reduction and defective pricing claims arising out of GSA Multiple Schedule Award Contracts
-Staying up to speed on the latest Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) cases
In addition, learn the ins and outs of DCAA audits by attending our practical, interactive post-conference workshop, “Surviving DCAA Audits: How to Prepare, Manage and Ensure that Data is Current, Complete and Accurate”.
