HOW – Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) A Hands-On Workshop designed to help you complete your Disclosure Statement

July 24 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm




The Cost Accounting Standards were designed to promote uniform and consistent methods of accounting practices for contractors. We will explain to which contracts and contractors the Standards are applicable, and confer on the current and proposed exemptions to the Standards. We will discuss the requirements of all 19 Standards, the differences in accounting as compared to GAAP and IFRS and methods of structuring your accounting system for compliance. Finally, we will cover the administrative requirements including preparation of the Disclosure Statement and post award contract adjustments due to changes in accounting practices.

Our Instructors are Available to Help You!

If you have a specific Schedule you need help with, bring your accounting documents and questions.
