Joint Agency Cost Estimating Relationship (CER) Development Handbook

Last Updated : 02/12/2020

​This guidance recognizes the overarching need within the Government cost analysis community to provide a handbook to serve as a fundamental reference for parametric Cost Estimating Relationship (CER) development. This handbook provides a variety of statistical techniques to help equip the analysts' toolboxes for attacking a range of estimating problems and data issues. Additionally, it presents tried-and-true processes to help analysts choose the appropriate method, understand the mathematics behind several of the available regression and curve-fitting techniques, validate and select the most representative CER, and properly document their efforts.
