Insider's Guide to Developing and Defending Overhead Rates
Speaker: Paul Haglund
Recorded: March 10, 2010
Length: 90 minutes

Engineering firms use overhead rates to help set pricing and to understand their own operations. Government clients (federal, state and local) are paying increased attention to overhead rates. As a result, overhead rates are more critical than ever to revenue and profit.

Does your firm have procedures to properly establish your overhead? Are you successfully defending your rates with government clients?

Financial manager and consultant Paul Haglund covers the mechanics of developing and using client-approved overhead (indirect cost) rates from your firm's accounting records, and other overhead issues including:

  • Setting up the direct labor base and indirect cost pool
  • What if you need separate "field" or "project" rates?
  • Recognizing "non-allowable" costs
  • Special handling for time records (time transfers, unpaid overtime, etc.)
  • Getting approved overhead rates from state or federal agencies
  • Avoiding expensive "swings" in annual overhead rates

As CFO of an engineering firm, Paul Haglund has long experience developing and defending overhead rates with government clients. In addition, Paul chaired ACEC's Management Practices Committee and the Tax & Regulatory Affairs Committee and was an industry respondent for proposed changes to Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR).
