Consultants with agreements using the Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) payment method are required to submit the firm’s overhead (indirect costs) schedules annually to NDOT for review/approval. If applicable, please include a cognizant official approval letter. Overhead schedules are also used with other payment methods to help justify labor billing rates or other costs.
Consultants must certify* each overhead schedule using the language from Chapter 11 of the Consultant Procurement Manual (page 11-48). For convenience, this certification language is available on a form called Certificate of Final Indirect Costs.
*The “Certifying Official” must be an individual executive or financial officer of the Consultant at a level no lower than a Vice President or Chief Financial Officer, or equivalent, who has the authority to represent the financial information utilized to establish the indirect cost rate for use under NDOR agreement.
Schedules and certification forms should be emailed to: NDOT.ControllerAuditRequests@nebraska.gov
