Contractor Overbilling - FAR 31.2, Contracts with Commercial Organizations

FAR 31.2, Contracts with Commercial Organizations, provides that costs claimed should have been incurred and that costs are allocable and therefore chargeable to a contract on the basis of relative benefits received or other equitable relationship [FAR 31.201-2 and -4].

This subpart and the contract also state that costs refunded to the U.S. Government will include all applicable related costs, such as overhead, fixed fees, and interest [FAR 31.201-6(a)].
