The Masters Institute in Government Contract Costs
July 18 - 20, 2006
Hilton Head Island, SC
Recognizing that a significant need exists for a specially tailored, advanced program devoted exclusively to the unique rules, problems, practices and demands of Government contract costs matters, Federal Publications developed this special program: The Masters Institute in Government Contract Costs. We are pleased to once again offer the Institute-completely updated for this summer's presentation.
The foundation of the Institute is its exceptional Faculty-veteran professionals who are leading authorities on cost matters. Their outstanding qualifications and lecture topics are all detailed below. You should note, however, that the Institute is specifically designed for experienced procurement professionals. This is vital if you are to get the most out of this course.
Each day of the Institute will consist of lectures, case studies, illustrative examples, group discussions, individual questioning, and consideration of questions on any contract costs subject. In addition, attendees will receive an extensive Manual prepared by the Faculty. Finally, we believe you will greatly benefit from your association with the other attendees-all of whom are expected to be on your professional level.
Terry Albertson will cover topics including FAR cost principles - Precontract costs: IR & D: B&P and CAS 420; environmental cleanup costs; public relations vs. marketing vs. direct selling costs; professional and consultant service costs; employee compensation, including uncompensated overtime and accounting for, and "termination" of fully funded pension plans - CAS 412 and 413 implications; cost and CAS issues as defective pricing problems on the third day of this conference.
