In this interactive session, expert speakers will take an in-depth look at the DCAA audit process. Using real examples of DCAA audit challenges and issues, panelists will discuss how issues arose and the path to resolution. They will also examine what went wrong, where it went wrong, and how these challenges could have been avoided. Attendees will take away valuable tools for managing the audit process, responding to auditors requests and preparing for the unexpected. The examples will range from esoteric to routine. Practical tips will address:

  • Managing and monitoring audit requests
  • Access to records and people
  • Issue avoidance and early detection
  • Dos and don’ts for communicating with your auditor
  • Adequacy of supporting documentation
  • Communication with the ACO
