Part II of the form identifies information that contractors must provide for the basic cost elements. In CCON 001, Advanced Proposal Analysis, students will take a series of on-line and virtual instructor-led courses to learn how to analyze each cost element. The information contained within each course can also be helpful in analyzing proposals where certified cost or pricing data is not required or when only one or a few cost elements must be examined. The courses included within the credential are:<br> <br> CON 7100 – Materials and Services (In development)<br> <a href=""><strong>CON 7110 – Direct Labor (Deployed)</strong></a><br> CON 7120 – Other Direct Costs (In development)<br> CON 7130 – Royalties (In development)<br> <a href=""><strong>CON 7140V – Advanced Cost Modeling (Deployed)</strong></a><br> CON 7150 – Sole Source Technical Evaluations (In development)<br> CON 7160 – Facilities Capital Cost of Money (In development)<br> CON 7170 – Analyzing Profit or Fee (In development)<br> <br> While CCON 001 is not yet deployed, we will release each course as it is completed.<br> <br> <a href=""><strong>CON 7110 – Direct Labor is now available for registration</strong></a>.
