April 24-25 for federal contractors using QuickBooks accounting software. The two-day boot camp will detail government cost accounting requirements for compliance with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA), the U.S Department of Defense agency responsible for performing all contract audits for the Defense Department.
Day one of the boot camp will cover direct and indirect costs, unallowable costs, indirect rate calculations, DCAA-compliant chart of accounts and the requirements for a DCAA-compliant accounting system. Day two will comprise hands-on demonstrations to teach participants how government contractors can configure QuickBooks and follow proper accounting procedures in order to pass a DCAA audit. The course will also showcase Solvability’s indirect rates model which can help government contractors develop actual and forecasted indirect rates for federal contract pricing and reporting.
