Correction to final rule.


This document contains technical corrections to the Illustrations in CAS 9904.404, “Capitalization of Tangible Assets.” An amendment to this Standard was published on February 13, 1996 (61 FR 5520). However, while the contractor's minimum cost criteria for capitalization was increased from $1,500 to $5,000 in the body of the Standard, this change was not reflected in the Illustrations part of the Standard. This technical correction brings the figures in the relevant Illustrations into line with the $5,000 minimum cost criteria for capitalization currently incorporated in the body of the Standard.


This rule is effective June 30, 2005.

When the Standard was amended in February 1996 (61 FR 5520) only the fundamental requirement at 9904-40 (b)(1) was changed to reflect the increase in the capitalization criteria from $1,500 to $5,000. However, corresponding changes were not made to the Illustrations in the Standard. This document makes the necessary technical corrections to Illustrations at 9904-60.
