Government contractors must comply with time and attendance regulations

If you are a government contractor, then you must use a time and attendance system that will help you monitor your workers throughout every phase of the contract. The most important element of the time and attendance system is that it complies with the regulatory agency who is responsible for contract audits. The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) is that agency. They are responsible for monitoring government contractors and ensuring that their payroll processes account for wage and hour, employee tracking, fringe benefits, and record-keeping requirements

The DCAA has strict requirements on timekeeping guidelines for government contractors, approving only specific time management systems that meet all of their audit criteria. These guidelines are meticulously enforced to ensure that government contractors’ costs are “accounted for accurately and without misuse.” At XcelHR, we offer contractors several fully compliant time management systems, which includes some of the most commonly used systems. For example, Deltek, can be fully integrated to our payroll software and is completely capable of producing the wage and hour reports and summaries required for government compliance.

Time management and timekeeping systems are used to produce reports that show government contractors are in compliance with the DCAA, FAR, DFAR and SCA standards.
