Indirect Cost Center
Integration Management with SAP R/3
Indirect costs benefit multiple cost centers. Indirect costs are posted in one Index/PCA identified as an indirect cost center for general use (i.e. shared costs for supplies, copiers, etc.).
These indirect costs are then allocated to direct cost centers. Adequate documentation must support all costs charged to the indirect cost Index/PCA as a common cost. Adequate documentation must exist detailing the methods used to allocate indirect costs for each agency's cost allocation plan.
