E-mail Print PDF

Since we bag on DCAA for failing to publish its MRDs, it’s only fair we let readers know that the audit agency has been busy updating old audit programs and adding some new ones. Here’s what you need to know. All programs are dated November, 2017, unless otherwise noted.

So yes, some of the ones we called “new” are actually old stuff that’s been missing for a while. And some of the ones we called “updates” are similarly old dogs that have been reissued. And we didn’t list everything. But you can visit DCAA’s website and see all the new and revised audit programs, and you can categorize them any which way you would like to.

And, if you are especially diligent, you can read them to see what to expect what DCAA comes to your place of business in order to perform an audit.
