Abstract : The report presents a description of an integrated information system for contractor cost reporting, which is proposed to meet the need for a unified system of collecting financial information covering long-range planning, program control, and historical recordkeeping (data bank) functions in weapon system development. The system provides a condensed yet comprehensive report package through combination and condensation of the reporting requirements included primarily in the AFSC Contractor Cost Study, the PERT-Cost System, and the Defense Contractors' Planning Report. Major specifications of a single underlying data collection system capable of producing all the required formats are presented. (Author)
