Cost Accounting Standards

Cost Accounting Standards
Cost accounting standards are used to increase the uniformity and consistency of cost accounting data supplied by contractors to the government for the purposes of assisting in negotiating, pricing, or administering contracts. Such rules are especially crucial to prevent the use of accounting gimmicks in a frequently noncompetitive environment.
