DCAA Audits - Preparation to Ease the Process


How certain are you that you know how to be prepared for an audit? Any contractor that does or aspires to do business with the US Government must be ready to demonstrate that they have satisfied all of their relevant contract requirements. Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audits can occur in the normal course of business during a contract's lifecycle. Consequently, it is in your best interests to be prepared prior to the audit, work with the auditors during the course of the audit, and substantiate your compliance with contractual terms and conditions. In this new series, you will learn about the procedures, requirements, and best practices for preparation and support of various types of DCAA audits, so that you can be confident that you know how to be audit ready.
