SUBJECT:     Audit of Incurred Costs for Fiscal Year 2002 (Audit #20041C0204)


The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audited the contractor’s compliance with requirements described in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement that are applicable to its major Federal Government programs.  The DCAA also audited the contractor’s certified final indirect cost rate proposal and related books and records for reimbursement of Fiscal Year 2002 incurred costs.  The purpose of the audit was to determine the allowability and allocability of direct and indirect costs that form the basis for negotiated indirect cost rates for the period ended September 30, 2002.

According to the DCAA, the contractor is a not-for-profit contractor and, therefore, falls under OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations.  The DCAA stated that the contractor complied in all material aspects with the requirements that are applicable to its research and development programs.  The DCAA also indicated the contractor’s indirect rates are acceptable as proposed.  Additionally, claimed direct costs are provisionally approved pending final acceptance.

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.
