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 Audit of Budget System Review (Audit # 20051C0239)
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s budget and planning system as of March 21, 2005, to assure that the contractor’s budget and planning system and related internal controls comply with applicable laws and regulations and are operating effectively. Test procedures were applied from October 1, 2004, through March 21, 2005.
According to the DCAA, the contractor’s budget and planning system and related internal control policies and procedures are adequate. However, during the course of its examination, the DCAA noted other matters involving the budget and planning system and related internal controls which, although not considered to be significant deficiencies at this time, the DCAA believes should be communicated to management. These matters are detailed in the “Suggestions to Improve the System.”
The DCAA examined only the budget and planning system. Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion on the contractor’s system of internal controls 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.
If you have any questions, please contact me at (202) 622-8500 or John R. Wright, Director, at (202) 927-7077.
