Zekiah has been working in the complicated government contracting world for over a decade as a small business. In that time, we have been asked many times by other companies, most of the time new starts ups but sometimes established companies much larger than us, how to develop indirect rates for Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) contracts. Hopefully this post will give you some idea of how to start the process.
