MEMORANDUM FOR JAMES A. WILLIAMS
DIRECTOR OF PROCUREMENT
INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE
FROM: Pamela J. Gardiner /s/ Pamela J. Gardiner
Deputy Inspector General for Audit
SUBJECT: Pre-Award Accounting System Review TIRNO-99-R-00009
In response to your request, the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) performed a pre-award accounting system and financial capability survey. A pre-award accounting system survey determines whether the contractor's accounting system is adequate for accumulating costs under prospective Government contracts. A financial capability survey determines whether the contractor is able to perform on government contracts. DCAA performed sufficient audit tests to provide a reasonable basis for their opinion.
In summary, the DCAA found the accounting system is adequate and the contractor is financially capable of performing on government contracts. However, DCCA recommended a follow-up review be performed, if the contractor is awarded a contract, to ensure the new accounting system is fully implemented and functions properly.
The information in this report should not be used for purposes other than that intended without prior consultation with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration regarding its applicability.
