MEMORANDUM FOR DAVID A. GRANT
DIRECTOR OF PROCUREMENT
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE
FROM: Pamela J. Gardiner /s/ Pamela J. Gardiner
Deputy Inspector General for Audit
SUBJECT: Agreed Upon Procedures for Solicitation TIRNO-00-R-00033
In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) evaluated the direct labor rates, indirect rates, the overall labor multiple, and the labor escalation factors for a proposal submitted under solicitation TIRNO-00-00033. This report pertains only to the performance of agreed-upon procedures and does not reflect the results of an audit. Accordingly, DCAA does not express an opinion on the adequacy and compliance of the submitted cost or pricing data.
In summary, DCAA took no exception to the proposed direct labor rates, the labor escalation factors, the overall labor multiple, and the indirect rates. However, DCAA stated that if the contractor asks to increase its escalation factor to 4.5% for option years, the contractor should be allowed to escalate its labor rates at a yearly rate no higher than the recommended increases for each year.
The information in this report should not be used for purposes other than that intended without prior consultation with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration regarding its applicability.
Please contact me at (202) 622-6510 if you have any questions, or Maurice S. Moody, Associate Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations & Exempt Organizations Programs), at (202) 622-8500.
