Activity based costing for defense contractors. (The CPA in Industry) by Musso, Francis J. Abstract- Activity based costing (ABC) is an accounting system that assigns overhead costs directly to factors that influence activity are used to determine how much cost is to be allocated to a particular product.

Costing is one of the foremost weakest links in the defence procurement process. The Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP), which applies to all capital acquisitions for the armed forces, requires cost estimates to be prepared at two stages: first, when a procurement proposal is sponsored by the user Service Headquarters (SHQ), and subsequently before the opening of the commercial offers.

-activity-based costing allocates selling and administrative expenses based on how each product consumes activities. ABC in service businesses For service companies, the use of single and multiple department overhead rate methods may lead to distortions to those of manufacturing firms.

The journal entries in process costing are basically similar to those made in job-costing systems. The main difference is that, in process costing, there is often more than one work-in.

Thus, major military manpower decisions are uninformed on the real present and future costs. The RFPB concluded that the Department suffers from a gap in its costing data, because it lacks proper policy to require a complete and consistent costing methodology. Authorization requests for major construction projects are supported by data on proposed physical capacity or other physical measurements, as well as data on estimated costs.
