Ordering Contracting Officers can use these benchmarked labor rates to estimate the total cost of the order and the Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE). You must determine:
Whether the total price for the order is fair and reasonable given the requirements of each order;
The appropriate level of effort and mix of labor to perform the task; and
The appropriate contract type.
The loaded hourly labor rates below include wages, overhead, general and administrative expenses, and profit for work performed in the continental United States. They apply only to time-and-materials and labor-hour orders. They do not include the 0.75 percent contract access fee.
