FROM:     Daniel R. Devlin /s Daniel R. Devlin

                 Assistant Inspector General for Audit (Headquarters Operations and

                 Exempt Organizations Programs)

 

SUBJECT:     Report on Application of Agreed-Upon Procedures - Quick Closeout for Contract Number TIRNO-95-D-00065 Delivery Order Number 0015 (Audit #20051C0205)

 

In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) applied agreed-upon procedures to evaluate direct costs and associated indirect costs claimed by the contractor in final voucher number 53 issued under contract number TIRNO-95-D-00065, task order number 15.  The purpose of the engagement was to assist in closing out the contract delivery order using administrative quick closeout procedures under the Federal Acquisition Regulation, Part 42.  This 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 claimed direct costs for Contractor’s Fiscal Years (CFY) 1998 through 2005 have been verified to accounting records and claimed indirect costs are based on application of final negotiated indirect rates to the recorded base amounts.  The DCAA also indicated that claimed indirect costs of $1,008 for CFY 2003 are subject to your determination.  According to the DCAA, the quick closeout rates used by the contractor have been lower than the final negotiated indirect rates and no audit exceptions have been taken for direct costs.  The DCAA does not expect that the CFY 2005 audit results will find any significant exceptions to the claimed costs.    

 

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.
