DoD proposes new rule to withhold payment on contracts if auditors find deficiencies in accounting, estimating, earned value management and other business systems. Recent hearing found 69 of top 100 Pentagon contractors have at least one flawed system.
Commissioner Dov Zakheim told FederalNewsRadio DCAA and DCMA "just didn't seem to be working in harness, and we got assurances, very, very firm assurances, from a very senior Defense official, Mr. Shay Assad, who said he's going to have it sorted out in 30 days. And frankly, we believe him."

The "dysfunctional" relationship between the Defense Contract Management Agency and the Defense Contract Audit Agency described before the Commission on Wartime Contracting might be as entertaining as watching "Jon and Kate Plus 8" for some, but Commissioner Dov Zakheim tells FederalNewsRadio there's too much money, and too many lives, at stake.
