Accounting -Farley, Inc. is a manufacturer that produces customized computer components

Question
Farley, Inc. is a manufacturer that produces customized computer components for several well-known computer-assembly companies. Farley’s latest contract with ComWest.com calls for Farley to delivery sound cards that simulate surround sound from two speakers. Farley spent several hundred thousand dollars to design the sound card to meet CompWest.com’s specifications.

Farley’s president, Bryon Wilson, has stipulated a pricing policy that requires the bid price for a new job to be based on Farley’s estimated costs to design, manufacture, distribute, and provide customer service for the job, plus a profit margin. Upon reviewing the contact figures, Farley’s controller, Paul York, was startled to find that the cots estimates developed by Farley’s cost account, Tony Hayes, for the CompWest.com bid were based on only the manufacture costs. York is upset with Hayes. He is not sure what to do next. [source: Horngren’s Accounting, Nobles/Mattison, Matsumura, 10th ed, Pearson Hall.]
