MEMORANDUM FOR DAVID A. GRANT
DIRECTOR OF PROCUREMENT
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE
FROM: Daniel R. Devlin /s/ Daniel R. Devlin
Assistant Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations and
Exempt Organizations Programs)
SUBJECT: Report on Forward Pricing Direct Labor Rates Effective July 6, 2002, Through June 30, 2003 (Audit #200310002.027)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s Civil Division direct labor forward pricing rate proposal dated August 21, 2002, and its revision to the proposal dated December 17, 2002. This proposal was for Fiscal Year (FY) 2003 and covered the period July 6, 2002, through June 30, 2003. The purpose of the examination was to determine the reasonableness of the proposed forward pricing direct labor rates and full time accounting factor.
The DCAA noted that its examination of the contractor’s forward pricing direct labor rates and full time accounting factor (referred to as the FY 2003 direct labor rates) disclosed numerous audit exceptions. The DCAA considered the contractor’s proposal acceptable for negotiation of fair and reasonable rates. However, the DCAA stated that the issues identified should be considered in the negotiation process.
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.
