SUBJECT:     Report on Audit of Corporate Office Incurred Costs for Fiscal Year 2003 (Audit #20041C0242)


The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) examined the contractor’s certified final corporate indirect cost proposal and related books and records for the reimbursement of Fiscal Year (FY) 2003 incurred costs.  The purpose of the examination was to determine the allowability and allocability of corporate office indirect costs and to recommend contracting officer-determined corporate indirect costs for the period March 30, 2002, through March 28, 2003.

The DCAA examination of the contractor’s FY 2003 corporate office incurred costs proposal disclosed questioned costs of significant items.  However, the DCAA opined that the contractor’s proposed corporate incurred costs are acceptable as adjusted by its examination.  Additionally, for FY 2003, the DCAA considered the contractor’s accounting system to be adequate for the accumulation and reporting of corporate office incurred costs. 

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.
