Featuring 998 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Cost Allocation System improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 998 standard requirements:
- Does the project manager understand that he/she needs to allocate reserve cost, reserve schedule, or replace or add personnel when responding to risks which have occurred?
- Which manufacturing disciplines and capacities do you commit to the project, which engineers with which skill sets, how many project managers and inventory are available?
- What happens if a review in a future year indicates that the asset is no longer impaired because the recoverable amount of the asset is higher than the carrying amount?
- Does your organization maintain formal and effective cost allocation policies, procedures, and related manuals that apply approved costing principles for transactions?
- Is the billing system expected to post transactions to financial systems or only prepare an exported data set that can be imported into the financial systems?
- Are the traditional methods of comparison, as direct labor costs or cost percentage allocated to assembly for each material type, truly adequate or relevant?
- Are your allocation methodologies effective in providing the right level of transparency to your clients in order to facilitate effective demand management?
- Can every stakeholder clearly agree with, support, and draw a line to the structural components and cost allocations aligned to mission or functional area?
- Can an embedded cost approach to cost allocation allocate costs based on cost-causation and set rates that improve allocative and productive efficiency?
- Which overhead services should be funded through cost allocation and which should be handled through interorganization agreements and direct billing?
