SUBJECT:     TIRNO-94-D-00090 and TIRNO-00-D-00019, Audit of Incurred Costs for Fiscal Year 2001 (Audit #20041C0203)


The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s February 12, 2002, certified final indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year 2001 incurred costs.  The purpose of the examination was to determine the allowability and allocability of direct and indirect costs and to establish audit-determined indirect cost rates for July 1, 2000, through June 30, 2001.  The proposed rates apply primarily to flexibly priced contracts.

The DCAA stated that the contractor’s indirect rates are acceptable as proposed.  Additionally, claimed direct costs are acceptable and provisionally approved pending final acceptance.

According to the DCAA, the contractor claims exception from the practices required by the Cost Accounting Standards Board rules and regulations because the company considers itself a small business concern.

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.
