Our overall audit objective was to determine whether DOD awarded and administered time-and-materials TM contracts for Southwest Asia in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation FAR. Specifically, we reviewed the Air Forces award procedures and contract oversight to determine compliance with the FAR and other DOD policies.
