In this course, you’ll learn the cost and pricing knowledge and skills essential for making sound contracting negotiation decisions. Building on the basic skills learned in Level I contracting courses and on-the-job experiences, Cost Analysis and Negotiation Techniques introduces the techniques needed to analyze cost proposals to establish pre-negotiation objectives for the various elements of cost contained in the proposals. Through an integrated case study, participants will demonstrate their ability to calculate a cost objective and a price/cost objective and determine their pre-negotiation position based on their calculations.
This course is recommended for contracting personnel who work in positions requiring unlimited contracting officer warrants or a Level II Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) certification.
Recommendation: You are encouraged to bring your laptop to use in this course. Also, you will receive a tool to help you apply what you learn in class back on the job.
