In this presentation, we discuss various situations that require a company to prepare a cost impact proposals when altering a "cost accounting practice" (48 CFR 9903.302-2). We explore the rationale behind these various types of changes, challenges in isolating cost accounting practices, while navigating through a mire of ambiguity. After an introduction, in which we discuss situation in which a cost impact proposal is needed, we specifically explore:
  1. Types of accounting changes that give rise to the requirement to submit a cost impact proposal (required, desirable or unilateral)
  2. Differences between requirements for General Dollar Magnitude (GDM) and Detailed Cost Impact (DCI) cost impact proposals
  3. The process for resolving cost impacts identified in cost impact proposals
