Cost Allowability Course - April 19 and 20, 2017 at SPM

On April 19 and 20, 2017, Stephen Knight, Kathryn Griffin, and Erica Geibel of Smith Pachter McWhorter will team with Suzanne Roske and Kristin Torcasi of PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP and Federal Publications Seminars to teach “Cost Allowability.”   The course will be held at Smith Pachter McWhorter’s offices in Tysons, Virginia and will be focused on cost allowability, allocability, and reasonableness under the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

Some featured topics of discussion:

  • Penalties for unallowable costs are on the rise. Learn when penalties are appropriate and when they must be waived.  
  • Learn about “Gray area” costs that have proven to be a frequent source of dispute between contractors and government auditors.  
  • How does the statute of limitations affect the government’s ability to disallow costs?  
  • To what extent must contractors retain records beyond the FAR records retention requirements in order to support an untimely government audit?
