Cost Estimating Community of Practice (CECOP) Symposium

March 21 & 22, 2017

Washington, DC


Members of the Integrated Planning Group (IPG) subgroup recognized the need for a Cost Estimating Community of Practice (CECOP). Similar to an academic or professional consortium, CECOP is an informal gathering of cost estimating practitioners. CECOP is focused on training, education and the exchange of cost estimating methodologies and best practices. Cost estimating professionals from the NNSA, DOE, Department of Defense, contractors, and other experts in the field will have the opportunity to participate in CECOP.
