Abstract:

The Cost Proposal Evaluation Program CPEP is a means to simplify and standardize the methodology for evaluating cost proposals. The Users Manual provides instruction to the cost analyst or evaluation team in the use of the tool. The manual guides the user from a discussion of what data is required the Cost Proposal Requirements section of an RFP, to a discussion of data preparation after a proposal has been received. The manual continues with step- by-step instructions in the use of the data processing software developed for CPEP. The instructions and the use of the software are both presented in an elementary manner to assist individuals new to cost proposal evaluation. The software provides printouts that are used for comparison to a Government estimate. Costs are presented at various levels of detail, burden or unburdened, inflated or normalized.
