Webinar: Navigating Through the Complexity of FAR Overhead Rates and Audits
Performing services for governmental clients can be a profitable opportunity for A/E firms if you understand the complexities of working with these entities. One such complexity is the requirement of determining an overhead rate in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), as well as the potential for an overhead audit. While the compliance can be intimidating, with a thorough understanding of the FAR overhead rates and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Uniform Audit & Accounting Guide, your firm can be competitive and profitable.
In this webinar, we will:
- Provide you with a basic understanding of the requirements for calculating your firm’s FAR overhead rate;
- Offer tips for maximizing your allowable FAR overhead rate;
- Discuss how to use the FAR overhead rate to most effectively negotiate government contracts; and
- Outline the fundamentals of an overhead rate audit.
Plus, we will cover the most recent AASHTO guide and review important steps in preparing for a FAR audit.
