Contract Proposal and Pricing Support
Pricing a proposal correctly is one of the most important tasks for a government contractor. The proposal has to be priced competitively and allow the company to cover its overhead plus make a profit. Overhead rates drive the price of the contract for service contracts. Overhead rates used in a contract proposal are called forward pricing rates. Forward pricing rates are based on a company budget. Budget projections need to be supported by explanations.
Under the Truth in Negotiations Acts, DCAA or the contracting office may want to review the detail behind the rate buildup. Well-documented forward pricing rates are critical to sustaining the proposed rates in contract negotiations.
We offer support in the following areas:
- Forward pricing rates
- Budgeting and forecasting
- Interface with DCAA on your behalf
