Government contractors subject to the Allowable Cost and Payment contract clause (FAR 52.216-7) must submit to the government an adequate incurred cost proposal (ICP) within six months after the end of the fiscal year. A completed ICP provides the contractor with their claimed rates, which, when approved, become final indirect rates for the period in question. For an adequate submission, contractors must know all the components of the incurred cost proposal and understand the proper treatment of costs to accurately calculate indirect rates. 

This webinar is Part I of a two-day webinar series. During this series, Robert Jones (Left Brain Professionals) will provide step-by-step guidance of each schedule and explain the required and recommended supporting documentation.
