During this incurred cost submission training, we'll share insights on the purpose of incurred cost submission and their administrative requirements, how to prepare your own custom incurred cost submission template or the “DCAA ICE model,” how to review the incurred cost submission to help ensure that it is deemed adequate, and how to prepare for an incurred cost audit.

Please join our government contracting consulting team from FORVIS for an informative webinar as we walk through the preparation and adequacy requirements of each required ICP schedule and discuss costs that auditors commonly question. For those contractors with an incurred cost submission, aka incurred cost proposal (ICP) requirement, with a fiscal year ending December 31, your submission is due on June 30.
