Navigate through many areas for consideration when evaluating overhead rates, including costs which are allowable vs. unallowable, common pool and allocation bases, 2 tier vs. 3 tier structure, and strategic organizational considerations. This information is geared for the person(s) involved in the evaluation and management of the indirect rate structure, in contract finance, and others who want to better understand overhead rates and indirect rate structures.
