Project Announcement: Summary Report on DoD's Compliance With the Berry Amendment and the Buy American Act for Selected Items (Project No. D2017-D000CG-0144.000)
We plan to begin the summary audit immediately. This audit is the fifth and final in a series of audits in response to Section 1601 of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2014, which requires the DoD Office of the Inspector General to periodically audit contracting practices and policies related to the Berry Amendment under section 2533a, title 10, United States Code. See the attached announcement letters for the projects that will be included in this summary audit. Our objective is to determine whether the DoD awarded contracts that complied with Berry Amendment and the Buy American Act when purchasing covered items.
