The Contract Opportunities Center, which serves as a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), is funded in part through a cooperative agreement from the Department of Defense (DOD) through a program that is administered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The content of any written materials or verbal communications of the PTAC does not necessarily reflect the official views of or imply endorsement by DOD or DLA.

WHO is the DCAA and WHY should it matter to My Company?

Were you aware that winning and performing a federal government contact was only part of being a successful government contractor?  Many federal contract awards are contingent upon the determination of whether a contractor's accounting system meets the established requirements, follows specific written accounting policies, and maintains an accounting system that can perform specific cost, timekeeping, and billing functions.  Agencies conduct unique "financial health" audits prior to awarding some contracts.  Be proactive and be prepared!

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) provides audit and financial advisory services to Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal entities responsible for acquisition and contract administration.

This is a perfect opportunity for you to interact with the DCAA as they provide targeted training, best tactics, and strategies to help you be successful while undergoing the federal audit process.
