Report Subcontract cost/price analysis as part of CO consent decision? in Contract Pricing Including CAS & Allowable Costs Posted May 23, 2019 1 hour ago, VipinOwl said: It is my understanding that when awarding a CPFF prime contract, even given adequate price competition, cost realism must be performed, and as such cost or pricing data must be obtained, so price analysis alone will not suffice. Depends on what you mean by "price analysis." If you consider analysis of other than certified cost or pricing data to fall under cost analysis, then so be it...you're conducting cost analysis instead of price analysis. Just note that you're NOT required to obtain certified cost or pricing data and conduct a full FAR 15 compliant cost analysis. Cost Realism is very different from Cost Analysis.
