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 Direct and Indirect Costs for Contractor’s Fiscal Year 2001 Incurred Costs (Audit #200210002.027)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s July 23, 2001 certified final indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year 2001 incurred costs. The purpose of the examination was to determine the allowability and allocability of direct and indirect costs and to recommend Contracting Officer determined indirect cost rates for January 20, 2000 through January 19, 2001. The proposed rates apply primarily to flexibly priced contracts.
The DCAA noted that except for the Materials and Subcontract (M&S) Overhead, the contractor’s indirect rates are acceptable as proposed. However, the contractor is in noncompliance with CAS 405, Accounting for Unallowable Costs. Also, the DCAA stated that except for the subcontract costs, claimed direct costs are provisionally approved pending final acceptance.
The DCAA qualified its audit report because the results of the assist audits for the subcontract costs had not been received. The results of the assist audits are considered essential to the conclusion of the M&S examination.
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 Daniel R. Devlin, Assistant Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations and Exempt Organizations Programs), at (202) 622-8500.
