Project Announcement: Audit of Contracts for DoD Information Technology Products and Services Procured by DoD Components in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic (Project No. D2020-D000CS-0129.000)

Audit

We plan to begin the subject audit in May 2020. The objective of this audit is to determine whether DoD Components used supplemental funding, received in response to the coronavirus–19 (COVID-19) pandemic, to procure IT products and services in accordance with applicable DoD and Federal requirements. Specifically, this audit will determine whether DoD Components:

  1. adhered to congressionally-established requirements for using supplemental funds;
     
  2. procured information technology products and services to support operations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and used those products and services for that purpose;
     
  3. paid fair and reasonable prices for those products and services; and
     
  4. assessed whether known cybersecurity risks existed and developed risk mitigation strategies for the risks before procuring or using the information technology products.
