SUBJECT:     Report on Application of Agreed Upon Procedures – Quick Closeout for Contract Number TIRNO-95-D-00061 (Audit #20041C0229)

 

In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) applied agreed upon procedures to evaluate direct costs and associated indirect expenses claimed by the contractor in final voucher numbers 14, 9, 7, 16, 18, 16, 8, 7, 19, 15, 22, 2, 22, 18, 5, 4, 30, and 5, respectively, issued under contract number TIRNO-95-D-00061, delivery order numbers 3232, 0004, 0013, 0014, 0017, 0015, 0018, 0020, 0021, 0022, 0025, 0028, 0012, 2206, 2207, 0005, 0008, and 0007.  The purpose of the engagement was to assist in closing out the contract delivery orders using administrative quick closeout procedures under the Federal Acquisition Regulation, Part 42.  The report pertains only to the performance of agreed upon procedures.  The DCAA did not perform an examination and, therefore, does not express an opinion.

The DCAA considers the Fiscal Year (FY) 2002 submitted rates acceptable for quick closeout.  The DCAA indicated that the claimed direct and indirect expenses for FYs 1996 through 2000 have not been examined with specific tests concerning Internal Revenue Service contractual requirements and regulations and are subject to your determination.  The claimed direct costs have been verified to incurred cost schedules and supporting cost records and claimed indirect expenses are based on application of established final rates to associated base costs.  The DCAA also indicated that claimed adjustments of ($510) for FY 2002, which have been verified to the contractor’s cost records and final rate submittal, is subject to your determination. 

The information in this report should not be used for purposes other than those intended without prior consultation with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration regarding their applicability.

If you have any questions, please contact me at (202) 622-8500 or John R. Wright, Director, at (202) 927-7077.
