The purpose of the Northeast Conference on College Cost Accounting (NECA) is to provide information about federal cost accounting practices and to facilitate communication among institutions of higher education in the northeast region of the United States.  Specifically, the Conference seeks to develop consistent interpretations of various government policies such as:

Office of Management and Budget (OMB):

  • Uniform Guidance (2 C.F.R. Part 200): 2 C.F.R. Part 200
This guidance establishes uniform administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements for Federal awards to non-Federal entities:

Cost Accounting Standards Board

  • CAS 501
  • CAS 502
  • CAS 505
  • CAS 506
  • Disclosure Statement - DS 2
This conference is not engaged in price fixing or any other illegal activity which would violate anti-trust laws.  This conference is not in competition with other organizations and the meetings will add to and not replace COGR, NACUBO, NCURA or SRA sponsored meetings.
NECA is proud to partner with the Society of Research Administrators International (SRAI) for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits for our annual conference. SRAI is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
