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:     Compensation System Audit  (Audit #20051C0203)

 

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s compensation system as of April 30, 2003, to assure that the contractor’s system of compensation controls is adequate to provide billed costs that are reasonable, compliant with applicable laws and regulations, and subject to applicable financial control systems.  The examination was also used to evaluate the contractor’s compliance with the system’s internal control requirements.

 

The DCAA stated that the compensation system and related internal control policies and procedures of the contractor are adequate. The audit disclosed no employee benefit costs considered unreasonable under the Federal Government regulation.  The DCAA examined only the compensation system.  Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion on the contractor’s system of internal controls taken as a whole.

 

This DCAA report was issued in July 2003; however, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) did not receive the report until January 2005.  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) previously received a copy of the report directly from the DCAA.  We are transmitting this report to you to enable the IRS to track any financial accomplishments derived from negotiations with the contractor based on the results of this DCAA report.  

 

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

 

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