A contingency arises when there is a situation for which the outcome is uncertain, and which should be resolved in the future, possibly creating a accounting for a contingency is essentially to recognize only those losses that are probable and for which a loss amount can be reasonably estimated.

Examples of contingent loss situations are. Like many treatment decisions, agreement about the value of contingency management, at management, staff, and community levels, is a first step in establishing a CM intervention.

The contingency school changed this by proposing that there are no universal rules in management. There are three GAAP-specified categories of contingent liabilities: probable, possible, and remote.

Probable contingencies are likely to. the difference between contingency planning, whic h typically occur in the risk management cycle prior to a pandemic, and emergency response, which takes place in the course of the pandemic.
