    In this module, we are going to review your organization and its treatment of allocated costs.

    Retrieve any report in the organization that allocates common costs to a division, product, or service. Recast that report with unallocated costs and comment on the usefulness of that revised report.

    If you cannot identify specific actual amounts, make a reasonable estimate and apply the tool as if the data were factual.

    If you are unable to identify any report with allocated costs, create a report that you think may apply to your organization and treat the data as if it were factual.

    Your report should include

    The name and nature of the organization
    The activity and time period you used
    The inputs you used
    Your results
    Any implications from your results
    This should be a one to two page report.
