    It’s a notable day when DCAA publishes a new MRD (Memorandum for Regional Directors). It’s not like that happens very often anymore. In February, DCAA published a new MRD entitled “Audit Guidance on Revised Policies and Procedures for Auditing Incurred Subcontract and Inter-Organizational Transfer Costs.”Readers of this blog know that we have, in the past, taken issue with DCAA’s.   The DCAA may audit your Purchasing System. QuickBooks has a good purchasing module that can handle any purchases, not just inventory. Each approved vendor or subcontract purchase should be entered as a Purchase Order against specific contracts. The accounting department would then process vendor invoices against approved purchase orders.

    DCAA will likely second guess the sufficiency of the prime contractor cost or price analysis leading to a DCAA assertion that the FFP subcontract is not sufficiently documented as a fair and reasonable price; hence, the entire subcontract cost (price) is unreasonable under FAR   Fortunately, per DCAA’s latest Memorandum for Regional Directors, “Audit Alert on Requirement for Prime Contractor Cost and Price Analyses,” proposals that lack cost and price analysis for the subcontractor rates will no longer be deemed inadequate. Rather, DCAA will proceed with the audit while giving the prime contractor time to submit.

      Many small business primes have expressed concern about DCAA’s requests and expectations, during these audits, and what impact it may have on the allowability of historical subcontract cost. In my professional opinion, I doubt DCAA is going to take a step back in its auditing approach, nor relent in its expectation of subcontractor monitoring.   The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) recently published a Memorandum for Regional Directors (MRD), titled “Audit Alert on Requirement for Prime Contractor Cost and Price Analyses,” that provides answers to frequently asked auditor questions regarding cost and price analyses to establish the reasonableness of proposed subcontract prices.

Recent government guidance at both federal agencies and at the state level has made adequate audits of subcontract cost or pricing data a key aspect of any prime contract.

GAO provided information on the Defense Contract Audit Agency's (DCAA) inventory of subcontracts subject to the Truth in Negotiations Act, focusing on the inventory's incompleteness and deficiencies in the defective pricing policy.

GAO noted that: (1) DCAA fails to timely include subcontracts in its inventory; (2) 15 of 25 subcontracts, totalling $71 million, were not included; (3) DCAA fails. Octo The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) published a Memorandum for Regional Directors (MRD) last week that provides answers to frequently asked auditor questions regarding cost and price analyses to establish the reasonableness of proposed subcontract prices.

Of particular note is the direction that DCAA auditors proceed with subcontract proposal. the prime or subcontractor. So the question is does DCAA correctly interpret the new provision of FAR as requiring only “separate rates for each category of labor to be performed by each subcontractor for each category of labor to be performed by the offeror.” According to DCAA’s statement that leaves only one manner, namely.

The FAR outcome of SUBCONTRACT CONTROL involves ensuring subcontracts clearly identify assets to be provided and ensure proper flowdown of contract terms and conditions; e.g., extent of liability for property loss; or for property fabricated at the subcontractor, the extent of any restrictions or limitations.

In some cases, sub-contractors. Effective on the date of the enactment of this Act [Nov. 25, ], except as provided in paragraph (2), the Defense Contract Audit Agency may not provide audit support for non-Defense Agencies unless the Secretary of Defense certifies that the backlog for incurred cost audits is less than 18 months of incurred cost inventory.

Model 4 – Fringe, Overhead, Subcontract/Material Handling OH, and G&A A contractor may have some contracts that are primarily service oriented, while others may be more material intensive.

In such a situation, the contracts that are material intensive may incur a much greater dollar amount in costs, but require less administrative effort. DCAA compliance means meeting the stringent regulations and auditing requirements overseen by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA).

A critical part of DCAA compliance is ensuring that your team members track their hours correctly. These rules apply to them whether they are working on the government contract or not.

Is TSheets DCAA-compliant? It is DCAA's opinion that the prime is responsible for auditing the subcontractors. See FAR (d)(5), "The prime contractor is responsible for settling subcontractor amounts and rates included in the completion invoice or voucher and providing status of subcontractor audits to the contracting officer upon request.".
