When considering overseas employment, the question of education for under aged dependents invariably arises. Will the Government reimburse contractors for the cost of private schools in an overseas location?
The answer is "maybe". FAR 31.205-44(e) provides that:
"Training or education costs for other than bona fide employees are unallowable, except that the costs incurred for educating employee dependents (primary and secondary level studies) when the employee is working in a foreign country where suitable public education is not available may be included in overseas differential pay."
Of course, the cost must also meet all of the other allowability tests in FAR 31.201-2(a)(1)-(4);
- GAAP and CAS compliant
- Terms of the contract
