GovCon Webinar Series: Part 4 – Understanding the Impact of FAR Part 31.2 Cost Principles on Indirect Rates

Slide Deck


Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 31.2 provides principles about which costs are allowable, reasonable and allocable. With over 50 cost principles applicable to contracts with the US government, our government contracting experts will examine the most important and commonly used cost principles that impact indirect cost recovery.


  • The principles of allowability, reasonableness and allocability
  • The impact on cost recovery from credits (refunds as offsets) as well as contract terms and conditions
  • Expressly unallowable cost and associated penalties
  • The 52 selected cost principles
  • Commonly used cost principles
  • The impact of selected cost principles on indirect cost and rates

Participants will come away with a better understanding of the FAR Part 31.2 Cost Principals and have the tools they need for successful indirect cost recovery while avoiding penalties.
