SUBJECT:                    Report on Preaward Survey of Prospective Contractor’s Accounting System (Audit # 20051C0233)

 

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s accounting system to determine whether the design of the system is acceptable for the award of a prospective contract, in accordance with the criteria set forth in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 53.[1] 

According to the DCAA, the contractor’s design of the accounting system in all material respects is considered acceptable for award of a prospective contract, in accordance with the criteria contained in FAR 53.  The DCAA did not perform a comprehensive examination of the contractor’s overall accounting system and its related internal control.  Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion of the contractor’s system of 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.
