Project Announcement: Audit of DoD Compliance With Whistleblower Protection Requirements in FY 2020 Contracts (Project No. D2021-D000AV-150.000)

Audit

We plan to begin the subject audit in August 2021. The objective of this audit is to determine whether the DoD contracting officials include the required whistleblower clauses in contracts and ensure that Defense contractors and subcontractors comply with the requirement to inform employees, in writing, of their whistleblower rights and remedies, as required by Public Law 112-239, “National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013,” section 827(D). We may revise the objective as the audit proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
