Cost Transfers

General guidelines for verifying costs:

Is the cost Allowable?

Is it Allocable?

  • If it is identifiable and has documentation support.

Is it Reasonable?

  • Whether it is reasonable depends on the amount and kind of costs.

Please remember:

  1. The timeliness can affect allowability.
  2. Explanations must be consistent with supporting documentation.
