JOIN US TO LEARN THE MOST EFFECTIVE IDC NEGOTIATION STRATEGIES.
GET TIME-TESTED TECHNIQUES AND MORE!
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 also 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:
- The decision in Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Inc. v. Mandregan, et al. on facilities costs and duplication of costs
- The decision in Navajo Health Foundation - Sage Memorial Hospital, Inc. v. Burwell, where the court ruled that CSC must be provided to support a tribe's entire federal health care program, including programs and services funded by third-party revenues such as Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurance
- Other active cases
- The Contract Disputes Act process and how to assert and preserve claims for underpayment of contract support costs or other funds.
- Which legal issues are on the horizon regarding indirect costs and contract support. Discover how to prepare for submitting claims if the outcomes of these disputes prove successful for tribes
We’ll take a look at BIA and IHS Contract Support policies, and potential recovery of CSC on third party revenues, discuss important considerations for completing your Annual Contract Support Costs Calculations (ACC) form, and review implementation issues.
Plus, Elliott Milhollin and Adam Bailey of Hobbs Straus will discuss the CARES Act and what it means for tribal organizations.
We’ll also provide you with different indirect cost scenarios and explore 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 increase your recoveries by tens—or even hundreds—of thousands of dollars. Register today!
Pre-Summit Workshop - September 22 - Join us and be fully prepared for the complexities of the two-day Summit. The Pre-Summit Workshop will cover generating your IDC proposal from beginning to end. (You must register for the Indirect Cost Summit in order to attend this session.)
