    Specifically, I need to determine: 1. What elements comprise a cost model? 2. Is there a DAU template for cost modeling that I can use? 3. What are the recommended accessible sources for price/performance modeling?


    One good source for information on developing and evaluating cost estimating relationships is the Parametric Cost Estimating Handbook which is a by-product of the Parametric Cost Estimating Initiative and associated Parametric Estimating Reinvention Laboratory of the mid-1990's. The Handbook, now in its fourth edition, is the culmination of a joint industry and government collaboration involving organizations such as DCMA, DCAA, ISPA, MCR, Galorath, Price and others. The Handbook can be found at the ISPA website and will soon be available on the DAU Acquisition Community Connection.
