SUBJECT:†††† TIRNO-95-D-00059 Incurred Costs Audit for Fiscal Year 1999 (Audit #200310002.010)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) has audited the contractorís System Sciences Operationís November 3, 1999, certified final indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year (FY) 1999 incurred costs.† The purpose of the audit was to determine the allowability of direct costs and indirect cost rates and establish audit determined indirect cost rates for April 3, 1998 through April 2, 1999.† The proposed rates apply primarily to the flexibly-priced contracts.
The DCAA made an upward adjustment to the FY 1999 General and Administrative expense pool.† This adjustment reflects audited allocations received from the Civil Group home office.†
The DCAA considered the contractorís accounting system to be generally adequate for the accumulation, reporting, and billing of costs on government contracts.† However, the DCAA did not receive the results of assist audits on subcontract costs.† These costs are considered essential to the conclusion of this audit.† Therefore, the DCAA qualified its audit report because these audits may disclose additional questioned costs.
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) 622-8500 or John R. Wright, Director at (202) 927-7077.
