Obligations to be incurred at a future time to procure equipment or material in place of items which have been sold or transferred. There are two methods used to determine replacement cost: (1) Replacement cost may be determined by applying the OSD prescribed inflation factor to the most recent contract price of the item to be replaced. The inflation factor is applied to each fiscal year between the year the item sold or transferred was acquired and the fiscal year in which the replace- ment item will be delivered. (2) Replacement cost may also be determined by obtaining a current contractor quote for the replacement item. Normally the second method is the most accurate method.
