March 21 - 22, 2018
Phoenix, AZ - Embassy Suites

Falmouth Institute’s 2018 Indirect Cost Summit is just around the corner!
Get ready to learn the most effective and current IDC negotiation strategies from our talented faculty — John Friel, CPA; and Steve Osborne (Hobbs & Straus) — who collectively have negotiated and litigated millions of dollars in Contract Support Costs and Indirect Costs for tribes.

We’ll instruct you on time-tested techniques for negotiating IDC agreements with the Interior Business Center (IBC) and update you on these issues that will impact your tribe in 2018 and beyond:

  • Legislation impacting the 477 program
  • How the Trump Administration’s budget will impact Contract Support Cost (CSC)
  • The implication of current disputes, litigations and settlements, including Navajo Sage Memorial Hospital
  • CSC and the FAST Act
  • Trending opportunities under Section 105(l) leases
  • BIA and IHS policies
  • Recovery of CSC on Third-Party revenue
  • Important considerations for completing your Annual Contract Support Costs Calculations

  • You’ll explore different indirect cost scenarios and how the outcomes can vary depending on whether your main funding source is BIA or IHS and what your rate and exclusions are. Come ready to learn how to analyze different options and determine which one may be best for your tribe. And as always, we’ll review best practices to use throughout the year to ensure your tribe doesn’t end up over-recovering or under-recovering costs.

    Don’t miss your chance to save your tribe tens—or even hundreds—of thousands of dollars. Register today!
