Indirect Pools and Bases - Are we Double-Dipping? Advantages/Disadvantages to Number of Pools?

Two Questions: (1)I’m trying to decide on 2 Pools or 3 Pools. Some in our company feel that having 3 Pools (FOG) makes us appear better organized and that the government prefers to see 3 Pools. Others feel that 2 Pools (O-including Fringe and G&A) is adequate. Does the government actually have a preference?  (2) If we go with the 3 Pools can we “double dip” the direct labor as a base for Pool 1 and Pool 2? Could this “double dipping” be a good reason to use 2 Pools instead of the 3?
