Project Announcement: Evaluation of DoD Hotline Complaint Regarding a Contracting Officer’s Actions Taken in Response to Noncompliant Costs Reported by Defense Contract Audit Agency (Project No. D2017-DAPOCF-0142.000)

We plan to begin the subject evaluation in May 2017 in response to a DoD Hotline complaint. Our objective is to determine whether a Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) contracting officer took appropriate action on a Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) report identifying over $1 million in costs that did not comply with the Federal Acquisition Regulations. This evaluation will include, but is not limited to, interviewing DCMA and DCAA personnel and reviewing relevant Agency documents.
