Event Navigation

DCAA stands for “Defense Contract Audit Agency,”
which is the government agency responsible for evaluating the Department of Defense (DoD) contracts and other federal agencies. A key aspect of complying with government regulations is creating business and accounting systems that are compliant with DCAA.

In a webinar, we’ll provide an overview of the pre-award accounting system design review process. Participants will learn about what occurs prior to the award of a cost-type contract, what the applicable Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFARS) regulations say with regard to what comprises an acceptable accounting system, frequently asked questions about compliance and systems requirements. We will also:

  • Provide an overview of DCAA functions as a key member of the government acquisition team
  • Offer information on online resources and guidance available for contractors and small businesses
  • Discuss contractor accounting system requirements, key provisions of the Accounting System Administration clause (DFARS 252.242-7006), contract billings, and common accounting system deficiencies

Learn how to increase your business’ compliance success rates for government contracts in this free webinar.

PLEASE NOTE: Once you have registered, you will be sent access details to join the webinar in a separate email.
