If your government contract is covered by Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), you must be sure that you do more than complete a CASB Disclosure Statement. You need to complete it correctly, and without making the common mistakes that cost contractors their margins—and more.

Being sure that you are in compliance means knowing the correct answers to two key questions:

  1. Is my contract CAS-covered?
  2. How do I approach disclosure so that I anticipate challenges and avoid costly pitfalls?

Let an expert give you the practical answers you need to stay compliant and profitable.

This 90-minute webinar helps government contractors troubleshoot common but costly mistakes in preparing your CASB Disclosure Statement. Your guide, Marie Salamone, draws on deep experience with contract cost accounting and compliance. She will alert you to key challenges and pitfalls so that you will be able to address them before you encounter problems during an audit.

Take the guesswork out of CAS compliance. You will gain a clear and current understanding of Cost Accounting Standards and the entire disclosure-statement process. Practical tips help you reduce the time and risk of preparing your document, while real-world suggestions help you clear obstacles every step of the way. You will also have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
