The Importance of an Incurred Cost Proposal Submission

Government Contracts 375 x 200

The goal of the ICP process is to determine the final indirect rates used for billing the government on cost-reimbursement contracts. These rates establish how much of a contractor’s indirect costs are reimbursable, making this a significant determinant of profitability.

The ICP process is a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) requirement for all businesses that receive government funding. Cost documentation guidelines are governed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). Submissions are due six months after the contractor’s fiscal year closes.
