FROM: Pamela J. Gardiner
Deputy Inspector General for Audit
SUBJECT: TIRNO-93-C-0026: Incurred Costs and Indirect Expense Rates Audit – Fiscal Year 1999 (Audit #200210002.002)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s April 23, 2001 certified indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year 1999 incurred costs. The purpose of the examination was to determine allowability of direct costs and indirect cost rates and establish audit-determined indirect cost rates for the period October 1, 1998 through September 30, 1999.
The DCAA noted that the contractor’s accounting system is considered generally adequate to ensure the proper accumulation and reporting of direct costs under government contracts, and the proper accumulation of indirect costs into pools and allocation to contracts. However, the DCAA questioned some General and Administrative (G&A) costs. The entire questioned costs represent adjustments to the G&A expense pool for unallowable taxes and other adjustments.
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.
