Deputy Inspector General for Audit
SUBJECT: Report on Audit of Timekeeping Practices for Fiscal Year 2001 (Audit #200210002.009)
As part of the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) comprehensive audit of the Contractor’s - Civil Division, the DCAA performed a review of the contractor’s timekeeping practices. The purpose of the review was to evaluate the contractor’s timekeeping system as a basis to provide integrity and reliability of the labor costs incurred, accumulated, and reported in the performance of government contracts. The review included Time Entry System reviews and unannounced floorchecks of selected contractor's employees. The DCAA audit covered contractor operations during
Fiscal Year 2001.
In summary, the DCAA noted significant deficiencies during the course of the review (i.e., employees’ previous days had not been recorded and employees posted their entries in advance). The DCAA stated that these are prior deficiencies, which the contractor has not adequately corrected. In addition, the DCAA believes certain contractor labor practices require corrective action to improve the reliability of the contractor's labor accounting system.
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.
