DCAA Audits - Government Contract Accounting

Accounting Policies and Procedures

To become compliant with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), and meet Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) audit standards, your business has to have policies and procedures that ensure controls are in place for your accounting and financial reporting.

To make your accounting system compliant involves more than just the software your business is using, a more important consideration is the actual policies and procedures manual your company is using and your internal controls that monitor and enforce them.
