The Cost Analysis division produces several valuable publications throughout the year. Major publications include the NASA Cost Estimating Handbook (CEH) and the NASA Inflation Indices (NNSI). CAD distributes these publications to the NASA estimating and analysis community, and external organizations and partners in order to promote the sharing of data and best practices. Publications from CAD can be found below and downloaded using the links provided.
The inflation tables are provided for the purposes of estimating new efforts and for normalizing historical cost from prior missions. These factors should NOT be used to estimate NASA CS personnel costs nor should they be used if you have a contract in place. DCAA approved forward pricing indices should be used for all efforts that are already under contract.
Please use the Inflation Table tab as the primary resource. To help facilitate analysis, we are not locking the spreadsheet this year. With that said, please take caution when doing any editing to this spreadsheet. Do not edit or tamper with any hidden tabs. Lastly, the Historical Inflation tab is provided as reference only; please use the FY14 Inflation Tables as reference.
