Be Fair to DCAA

One of the consequences of the new law requiring DCAA to accept of reject a contractor’s incurred cost submission within sixty (60) days is a possible DCAA conclusion that it must reject the proposal instead of simply calling the contractor and asking a few questions. The loop of question response, question response can eat up the clock pretty quick, especially when about 90% of the proposals are submitted on the sane day.

Some examples I am seeing:

a. Did you really mean that the contract reported on Schedule O is ready to close.

b. Are you missing any contracts on Schedule H, we think you might be.

c. We see that you got labor reconciled on Schedule L but we are not sure how you did it. We will go ahead and reject and let you explain it with the resubmission.

Please feel free to share your examples.
