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 Adequacy and Compliance of Revised Disclosure Statement, Effective December 30, 2000
In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s Systems & Information Technology Group (S&ITG) Shared Services’ revised disclosure statement. The purpose of the examination was to determine whether the S&ITG Shared Services’ revised disclosure statement adequately describes the cost accounting practices which the contractor proposes to use in performing government contracts, and whether the revised practices comply with applicable Cost Accounting Standards (CAS). In addition, the DCAA evaluated the consistency of the revised cost accounting practices with actual practices.
The DCAA considered that the contractor’s accounting system, and the related internal control policies and procedures, are generally adequate for the accumulation and reporting of costs under government contracts. However, the DCAA qualified its opinion because the labor accounting system relating to the S&ITG Time and Attendance Reporting System, and reported CAS, are non-compliant. See page 9 of the DCAA audit report for additional information.
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 John R. Wright, Acting Assistant Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations and Exempt Organizations Programs), at (202) 927-7077.
