The purpose of the above spreadsheet is to help you learn to analyze and understand how the numbers related to the above transaction are working. Do not become co-dependent on the form because in real life you will not use the form. You will be expected to know how to calculate or determine if the information you are analyzing / auditing is correct. Start by looking at each year’s of information separately. 2003 Costs expended to date (means prior year (PY) plus current year (CY) actual costs incurred). Since this is the first year of contract there are no PY costs to include. Therefore, costs expended to date for 2003 are \$1,800,000.
