DCAA must work more closely with contractor auditors, GAO says

Friday - 12/9/2011, 7:41am EST

Auditors with the Government Accountability Office say that the Defense Contract Audit Agency needs to start working more closely with contractors' internal audit departments.

Defense companies have internal audit departments to monitor policies, procedures, and business systems related to their government contracts.

GAO says that DCAA should come up with a plan that would allow them to have access to those audits.

DOD officials agreed, but were skeptical that it would actually do the trick to get them full access.
