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: Report on Audit of Specified Cost Elements for Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Proposal TIRNO-01-R-00005
In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audited the direct labor rates, escalation factor, overhead rate, fringe benefit rate, General and Administrative expense rate, and cost of money factor included in the proposed composite of Firm Fixed Price rates. This report is limited to the audit of proposed Firm Fixed Price rates and other direct costs. Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion on the contractor's proposal taken as a whole.
The DCAA took no exception to the proposed Firm Fixed Price composite rates based on their evaluation of each component of the rates. However, the DCAA qualified its conclusion for non-receipt of the technical evaluation that may have an effect on the proposed Firm Fixed Price composite rates and the Internal Revenue Service's determination of a negotiated profit percentage.
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.
If you have any questions, please contact me at (202) 622-6510 or Maurice S. Moody, Assistant Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations and Exempt Organizations Programs), at (202) 622-8500.
