In project-driven organizations, delivering key metrics to Project and Program Managers, whenever and wherever they need it, is critical to business success. 

Unanet provides powerful capabilities for project financial reporting on direct costs, indirect costs, revenue, margin, average labor rate, backlog and many more key performance indicators. Powerful built-in business intelligence and analytics capabilities allow any number of standard report formats to be provided to your program managers to satisfy their critical information needs in real time. 

Consider the possibilities: your organization can use a common Job Summary Report layout for all projects, and also have formats with additional detail for different contract types; or provide your program managers with formats showing key metrics for project profitability analysis, such as comparing Fixed Price Revenue with the value of such work if performed as Time & Materials. 

Reports are available in detailed, summary, periodic and graphical formats using real-time data, or only posted transactions. For bid & proposal work, project probability can be used to appropriately forecast revenue and cost.

A webinar on how to recover costs, make a profit, and avoid enforcement action.

Join Unanet and Aronson LLC for an educational webinar as we look at the complex world of cost type government contracts.

Many government service contractors successfully enter the government market with relatively straightforward T&M (Labor Hour) contracts. Eventually, an opportunity to bid and perform larger and more complex cost reimbursement contracts will present itself. The skills required to manage T&M contracts differ markedly from the skills required to manage a cost type contract. While the statements of work may be very similar, the administrative requirements associated with managing a cost type contract greatly exceed those required for T&M work.

Managing cost type contracts is a sophisticated undertaking. The contractor must understand what a “cost” is, have an adequate accounting system, establish both direct and indirect budgets (and actively manage them), and with actual (not billing) rates.

Failure to comply with these requirements can have serious ramifications, including incurring a loss, a poor cash flow, inaccurate cost reporting and an inadequate accounting system, An understanding of your obligations is essential to mitigating your risks, maximizing your cost recovery and maintaining your bottom line — essentially the difference between recovering your costs making a profit or losing your shirt.

Learning Objectives:
• What an "adequate" accounting system must include
• Which costs can — and can't — be reimbursed
• How direct costs are reimbursed
• How indirect costs are reimbursed
• How to handle invoicing on cost-type contracts
• The "Paid-to Cost" rule
• The limitation of Cost-and-Funds clauses
• How to facilitate a cost type contract in an accounting system

In this webinar you will learn to improve your outcomes on cost type contracts.
