SUBJECT: TIR-89-0056 and TIRNO-95-D-00062: Incurred Costs Audit for Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 1999 (Audit #200210002.004)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s Information Technology Segment February 20, 2001 certified final 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 the allowability of direct costs and indirect cost rates and establish audit determined indirect cost rates for January 1, 1999 through December 31, 1999. The proposed rates apply primarily to flexibly-priced contracts.
The DCAA considered the contractor’s accounting system adequate. However, the DCAA did qualify its opinion because the contractor’s billing system is inadequate. In addition, DCAA questioned the Corporate, and Information & Enterprise Technology Home Office allocations and Fringe Primary benefit expenses.
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.
