Planning, Monitoring & Controlling Your Indirect Costs

Pillar: Managerial Accounting

Project management principles focus on managing costs charged directly to a project. However, typically the majority of total project costs are charged as indirect/allocations. Dassian’s FPA provides project managers and controllers detail insights into actual indirect cost performance enabling a more comprehensive control of all project costs (direct/indirect).  Proper planning, change management, performance evaluation, forecasting, and reporting all come together to assist your company in controlling project indirect costs.
