IG Report Whacks DCMA's Oversight of Contractors' Business Systems

October 13, 2015

On October 1, the DoD IG released a report entitled, "Evaluation of Defense Contract Management Agency Actions on Reported DoD Contractor Business System Deficiencies," asserting that DCMA contracting officers "repeatedly" failed to comply with DFARS requirements involving reported business system deficiencies. The report, which is similar to one issued on June 29 regarding DCMA's treatment of estimating system deficiencies (available here), focused its criticisms on DCMA, despite DCMA's comments noting that DCAA, rather than DCMA, is responsible for determining whether a "significant" business system deficiency exists.
