Description

GAO-09-3SP. March 2008.

The U.S. Government Accountability Office is responsible for, among other things, assisting the Congress in its oversight of the federal government, including agencies’ stewardship of public funds. To use public funds effectively, the government must meet the demands of today’s changing world by employing effective management practices and processes, including the measurement of government program performance. In addition, legislators, government officials, and the public want to know whether government programs are achieving their goals and what their costs are. To make those evaluations, reliable cost information is required and federal standards have been issued for the cost accounting that is needed to prepare that information. This Cost Guide was developed in order to establish a consistent methodology that is based on best practices and that can be used across the federal government for developing, managing, and evaluating capital program cost estimates.

The federal audit community is the primary audience for this guide. In addition, agencies that do not have a formal policy for conducting or reviewing cost estimates will benefit from it, because it will inform them of the criteria GAO uses in assessing a cost estimate’s credibility.
