The ICE Model, which is the electronic version of the "Model Incurred Cost Proposal" provides contractors with a standard, user-friendly ICE submission package for preparing adequate incurred cost proposals in accordance with FAR 52.216-7, "Allowable Cost and Payment" (see note 1 below). To assist contractors in meeting this requirement, this web page provides Version 2.0.1h (released April 2018) of DCAA's electronic model incurred cost proposal.

NOTE: Contractors should ensure they use the most current version of the ICE model when preparing their incurred cost proposals.

The ICE Program changes included with this current version are summarized in the document, ICE Program - Version Notes. The ICE user manual can be viewed here.

If this is your first experience with the ICE Model, please contact your local DCAA Office to discuss the model and its requirements before preparing the proposal. 

For instructions on downloading the ICE Model can be viewed here. 



DCAA has a new method for contractors to submit incurred cost proposals - the Contractor Submission Portal (CSP), which is located in the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE). This portal provided a single place for contractors to submit  their incurred cost proposal electronically. When the contactor enters the CSP, they will have three options; Submit a New Proposal, Update existing Proposal, and Withdraw a Proposal. Each of these actions will generate an email from the CSP to the cognizant Field Audit Office (FAO). The use of the CSP is not mandatory; however, we highly encourage you to use the CSP to facilitate submission of your incurred cost proposal. 

Some of the benefits from using the CSP for submitting the Incurred Cost Proposal are: 1) Ability to easily transfer large incurred cost submissions; 2) Receipt of a formal notification validating your submission was received by the cognizant FAO; 3) Centralized storage with version control to ensure DCAA works with the most current version provided; 4) Simple process for withdrawing or updating a proposal.
