Purpose The contractor’s proposal of final indirect cost rates is necessary for the establishment of rates used to reimburse the contractor for the costs of performing under the contract. The supporting cost data are the cost accounting information normally prepared by organizations under sound management and accounting practices.The proposal and supporting data is used by the contracting official and auditor to verify and analyze the indirect costs and to determine the final indirect cost rates or to prepare the Government negotiating position if negotiation of the rates is required under the contract terms. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 3,000. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses:3,000. Hours per Response:2,188. Total Burden Hours: 6,564,000. Burden hours are based on an estimated 3000 business segments that have overhead rates established annually. The hours per response are based on the sum of estimated hours per response for reporting and estimated hours per response for recordkeeping. The estimated total burden hours increased substantially from 2,469 hours to 6,564,000 hours for all respondents because we changed the method of estimating, not because the burden has increased.
