Topic Background:

The US federal government is the largest buyer of goods and services across the world. They make purchases through the federal procurement process, which is through government contracts. Companies planning to do business with the government should be prepared to be audited by the DCAA. The DCAA performs all needed contract audits for the Department of Defense (DoD). DCAA also provides other accounting and financial advisory services to DoD sections that are in charge of contract administration and procurement. It also provides contract audit services to other federal agencies as needed. DCAA’s job in performing audits and other services is to confirm that taxpayer dollars are being spent on fair and reasonable contract prices. The audits are done to ensure that companies have adequate and compliant internal control and accounting systems, business systems, written policies and procedures, pricing, and records. They also ensure compliance with FAR, DFARS, Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), Truth In Negotiations Act (TINA), and other federal acquisition rules and laws.

The fact that the government’s goal is to protect taxpayers’ dollars points out how important it is for companies to adequately prepare to do business with the government. If a company embarks on a business venture with the government, the business can grow tremendously and quickly. In essence, developing a relationship with the government can be very profitable for a business. If companies gain knowledge beforehand about the requirements, it can make the process much easier.
