Overheads, loads, add-ons, burdens, indirect costs, allocations, wraps... What do they all mean? Successful government contractors are able to navigate the sea of indirect rate complexities while complying with regulations, maintaining cost and delivering for their customer.

Mike Mardesich and Brad Tress tackle the essentials for understanding indirect costs and associated requirements. Some of the topics addressed include:

  • Typical indirect-cost pools
  • Allocation of indirect costs
  • Contractor management of indirect costs
  • Impact of government contracting requirements
  • Cost Accounting Standards requirements
  • How the government monitors indirect costs
