"Infor SyteLine gave us the top-of-theline capabilities we needed at a low total cost of ownership.” -Al Yost, President, Advanced Input Systems
Being Prepared Is Not Optional
Surviving annual DCAA audits - that's just the beginning. What about DCMA, source inspections, 1st articles, design documentation, NRE (non-recurring engineering)? The list goes on...
Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) give DCAA auditors the right to view contractor records. Per FAR 4.703 (a) "Contractors shall make available records, which includes books, documents, accounting procedures and practices, and other data, regardless of type and regardless of whether such items are in written form, in the form of computer data, or in any other form, and other supporting evidence to satisfy contract negotiation, administration, and audit requirements of the contracting agencies and the Comptroller General." Access to records violations are not limited to failure to provide auditors access to requested documents. Access to records violations also include delaying the audit process by not providing records in a timely manner.
