Planning for the Incurred Cost Proposal

The annual incurred cost proposal (ICP) is no small task for government contractors. With 23+ tabs in an Excel file and many supporting documents, the ICP is often a weeks long project. We find that a significant portion of time required to complete the ICP is the gathering of documents, researching variances, and answering questions. Think of the ICP like a tax return for your government contracts. Your tax preparer sends you a list of necessary documents and related questions. The sooner you provide all of the documents and answer all of the questions, the sooner your tax return is complete. The same is true for the IP. This webinar focuses on the practical planning and preparation for the incurred cost proposal (ICP), not the completion of the ICP itself. All attendees will receive our free ICP template.


Learning Objectives

  • List documents necessary for preparation of the ICP.
  • Identify common issues in gathering documents.
  • Describe best practices for current and future success.
