Abstract:

The report evaluates a number of problems identified in the Department of Defense DoD contract auditcontract administration interface area. The study confirmed the existence of some serious, continuing problems in the working relationships among DoD procuring contracting officers PCOs, administrative contracting officers ACOs and contract auditors of the Defense Contract Audit Agency DCAA. The report recommends that the DCAA and the Defense Contract Administration Services DCAS be merged organizationally in an agency reporting to the Secretary of Defense in two steps. It also recommends that the ASPR be revised to simplify the flow of documents in the field review of contractors proposals and to reestablish the ACO as the team captain of the field contract pricing team.
