Cost Reimbursement Award

For a Cost-type Contract, learn whether DCAA issued a report on incurred costs for the entire period of performance. In the case of forward pricing rates that are not yet audited, forward the Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO) a request for timely audit. Record paybacks for questioned costs.
