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 Review of Fiscal Year 2002 Incurred Costs (Audit # 20051C0229)

 

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) reviewed the contractor’s December 16, 2004, certified final indirect cost proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year 2002 incurred costs.  The purpose of the review was to establish indirect cost rates for the period.  The proposed rates apply primarily to the flexibly priced (sub) contracts.

The DCAA determined no significant costs were questioned in prior years and no indicators of audit risk had been identified.  Accordingly, the DCAA limited its review to the verification of the mathematical accuracy of the proposal, claimed costs for unusual items, items having obvious potential for including significant unallowable costs, and compliance with special contract terms and conditions.

The DCAA noted nothing came to its attention that caused it to believe significant costs claimed on the Federal Government contracts were unallowable, unallocable, or unreasonable.  According to the DCAA, the costs noted on the schedule of cumulative allowable costs represent costs that are considered allowable under each (sub) contract and, therefore, are reimbursable. 

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.
