Question

Alameda Instruments (AI) has offered to supply the Air Force with computer monitors at “cost plus 20 percent.” AI operates a manufacturing plant that can produce 44,000 monitors per year, but it normally produces 40,000. The costs to produce 40,000 monitors follow:


Based on these data, company management expects to receive $174 (= $145 × 120 percent) per monitor for those sold on this contract. After completing 500 monitors, the company sent a bill (invoice) to the government for $87,000 (= 500 monitors × $174 per monitor). The president of the company received a call from an Air Force auditor, who stated that the per monitor cost should be:
Materials......................................................................................... $25
Labor............................................................................................... 50
Supplies and other costs that will vary with production................. 15
$90
Therefore, the price per monitor should be $108 (= $90 × 120 percent). The Air Force ignored marketing costs because the contract bypassed the usual selling channels.
