SUBJECT:     Report on Follow-Up Audit of Facilities Use of Leased Space  (Audit #20041C0243)


The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) performed a follow-up audit of the contractor’s management and use of facilities within Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and the District of Columbia.  The DCAA performed the follow-up audit to evaluate the actions the contractor has taken in response to initial audit recommendations contained in the previous audit reports.  The purpose of the audit was to determine whether the contractor’s corrective actions are adequate and in agreement with the recommendations and whether further DCAA or Administrative Contracting Officer involvement is necessary.

The DCAA opined that the contractor’s Federal Sector has been proactive and responsive in its actions pursuant to the recommendations set forth in the initial audit reports.  In essence, the contractor has managed its facilities function more economically and efficiently since the original audits and has either eliminated or consolidated leased space.

The DCAA follow-up audit was limited to an examination of the contractor’s current use of its facilities area in relation to the initial audit recommendations.  As a result, the DCAA toured only those specific facilities for which cost avoidance was recommended in the initial audit reports and evaluated only the contractor’s policies, procedures, practices, and related internal controls for facilities use applicable to those facilities. Accordingly, the DCAA expresses no opinion on the contractor’s operating systems taken as a whole. 

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.
