The DCAA jurisdiction
The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) was formed to provide oversight on Federal Government procurement activity. The DCAA performs all of the audits for the Department of Defense (DOD), which is the largest procuring agency, but also is responsible for performing audits for every other government agency. Regardless of the size of your contract, the most important point to take note of is:
- ALL businesses that enter into contracts with the federal government are subject to DCAA auditing. These audits may occur at any time throughout the contracting process.
