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:                    Incurred Cost Audit for Fiscal Year 2001 (Audit # 20061C0203)

 

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s certified final indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 incurred costs.  The purpose of the examination was to determine allowability and allocability of direct and indirect costs and to establish audit-determined indirect cost rates for January 1, 2001, through December 31, 2001.  The proposed rates apply primarily to the flexibility priced contracts.

The DCAA qualified its audit report pending receipt of assist audits of the proposed FY 1999, 2000, and 2001 subcontract costs to the extent that the assist audits may disclose additional questioned costs.  The DCAA did not examine the subcontract costs and consider them unresolved pending receipt of the requested assist audits.

Claimed direct costs are acceptable and are provisionally approved pending final acceptance.  The contractor’s proposed indirect rates are acceptable as adjusted by the DCAA examination. 

The DCAA report was issued on September 29, 2003; however, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration did not receive the report until November 2005.  We are transmitting this report to you to enable the Internal Revenue Service to track any financial accomplishments derived from negotiations with the contractor based on the results of this DCAA report.

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.
