DoD plans to tame vendor business systems

The Pentagon has set up a new subcommittee to review its processes, policies and practices for how it audits and administers contractor purchasing, billing, estimating and accounting systems. This DoD-only panel will develop recommendations and an action plan in the next six months. DCAA says about 69 of the top 100 Defense contractors have at least one deficient business system.

Auditor Replaced

The Defense Department's chief auditor has been forced from her post and moved to another job inside the Pentagon. April Stephenson had been criticized sharply for her performance by members of Congress. Pentagon comptroller Robert Hale sent an e-mail to agency employees indicating the director of the Army Audit Agency, Patrick Fitzgerald, will replace Stephenson effective Nov. 9. The e-mail says Stephenson will take a senior position in Hale's office.
