CAS Pension Requirements In The Market Meltdown

Oct.13.2008

The drastic decline in the market value of the assets in defined-benefit pension plans is causing many contractors to review their options, including the possibility of partially or completely curtailing the accrual of future benefits under those plans. A complete curtailment of future benefits is a "segment closing" that would require adjustment of prior costs under CAS 413.50(c)(12) (producing a credit or refund to the Government if the plan is in surplus and a payment to the contractor if the plan is in deficit) and any decision to change future benefits may affect future costs, requiring timely disclosure in current negotiations under the Truth in Negotiations Act.
