SUBJECT:     Report on Audit of Purchasing System (Audit #20051C0222)

 

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s purchasing system as of March 4, 2005.  The purpose of the examination was to assure the contractor’s purchasing system and related internal controls are adequate, effective, and comply with applicable laws and regulations.

The DCAA considered the contractor’s purchasing system and related internal control policies and procedures adequate.  Test procedures were applied from November 3, 2004, through March 4, 2005.  The DCAA examined only the purchasing system.  Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion on the contractor’s internal control taken as a whole.  

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.
