DCAA Re-formats its Contract Audit Manual | PNWC’s Government Contracting Update

in Blog by
PNWC's Government Contracting Update

The Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) has significantly reformatted its on-line version of the Contract Audit Manual (CAM).The on-line version of CAM is the only version currently available – DCAA discontinued the print version several years ago. The previous on-line versions were simply .PDF copies of the printed version. The new formatting takes advantage of web-based navigation (e.g. hyperlinking) so that the reader, looking at the table of contents in one of the chapters, can navigate directly to the selected section by clicking within the table of contents. Additionally, there are copious hyperlinks within the text itself that take you directly to a FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulation) section, or other regulations or statutes, etc. Clicking on a double asterisks will take you back to the table of contents for that chapter. The topical index, although sharing the formatting style used throughout CAM, does not contain hyperlinks. Hopefully DCAA will remedy that omission shortly.

Costs Not Covered by a FAR Cost Principle | PNWC’s Government Contracting Update

in Blog by
PNWC's Government Contracting Update

The cost principles in FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations) Part 31 do not cover every element of cost that may be incurred by a Government contractor. The absence of coverage of a particular cost category however does not mean the cost are automatically allowable, or even unallowable. Remember, a cost must also be reasonable and allocable to the contract and it must also comply with contract terms. There are a lot of situations where the Government will cap certain costs by inserting provisions in the contract. For example, DOE (Energy) likes to cap executive compensation and many Agencies will cap the amount of overtime that can be charged to their contract(s).
