This webinar covers the fundamentals of Federal Contract Cost Accounting as it applies to QuickBooks. We demonstrate how QuickBooks should be configured to accommodate these cost principles so as to pass a DCAA Accounting System Review. This webinar goes beyond the limits of QuickBooks, however, because QuickBooks by itself cannot handle some of the required elements necessary for a compliant system. Consequently, we will discuss policies and procedures related to topics such as indirect cost allocation, time keeping, and allowability of costs. We will also show alternative ways how indirect rates can be computed and indirect costs can be allocated to final cost objectives, using add-on systems.
Topics will include:
Organizing the Chart of Accounts into Cost Pools
Timekeeping and Labor Distribution
Creating a Customized Report for Labor Distribution
Fully Loaded Job Cost Reporting
Managing Unallowable Costs
This webinar is 30-minutes in length.
