Submitting the Incurred Cost Submission (ICS) has never been easy, and it has been common for federal contractors to miss the deadline. But miss your deadline this year and you’ll get more than a friendly reminder: You’ll get just 30 days to submit an adequate ICS before DCAA’s tough guidance gives the ACO sole power to establish your final indirect rates.

Given the impact that could have on contract profitability, you must get out in front of the issue. You need to remove any confusion over the new DCAA adequacy and risk assessment requirements, and follow today’s absolute best practices for getting your spreadsheet to qualify as “adequate.”

Sign up today to find out how to get it right -- and on time!

For everyone who prepares, reviews or signs the ICS, this 90-minute webinar can clear the way to protecting contract value.  Federal contracting experts from Aronson LLC—Donna Dominguez and Aisha Mian—will demystify the ICS requirements, provide tips on how to submit an adequate incurred cost submission and share survival tips for ICS audits.
Avoid making DCAA’s “naughty list.”  From how DCAA’s expectations have changed, to best practices for completing your spreadsheet, meeting Adequacy Checklist criteria and earning a Low Risk rating, you’ll learn exactly what it will take to cross the finish line by June 30, 2015 -- or apply for an extension in time to make a difference. Plus, you can ask your specific questions during the Q&A portion of the presentation.

Reserve your space now to protect your incurred cost rates, Attendees who complete the course will:

  • Learn how new guidance affects Incurred Cost Submissions (ICS) and the filing requirements;
  • Understand the ramifications of noncompliance—including incurred cost audits, having the ACO unilaterally set your rates, and making the list of delinquent contractors;
  • Learn how DCAA updates change the ICS model, including deadlines and extensions;
  • Gain an understanding of the DCAA Adequacy and Risk Assessment of ICS;
  • Receive tips for surviving an ICS audit, including how to identify ICS resources
  • And more!

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar is of value to all federal prime and subcontractors, including anyone who prepares, reviews or signs the ICS. Attendees who will especially benefit from this presentation include:

  • Accountants
  • Compliance officers
  • Contract administrators
  • Program managers
  • CFOs, finance personnel
  • Agency and contractors’ counsel
  • Contracting Officers

Remember, the ICS due date is just six months from the contractor’s year end, and DCAA’s delinquent list now includes contractors whose adequate ICS is just 60 days overdue. There’s also the risk that ACO could move in to set your incurred cost rates at levels below those actual costs. Don’t miss this chance to get the expert help on best practices for protecting your profitability—and reputation.
