What Is DCAA Compliance?

DCAA compliance involves conducting and documenting your business management processes in accordance with the Defense Contract Audit Agency’s (DCAA’s) recommendations and guidelines. When you adhere to DCAA requirements, you can align your business with federal laws and ensure your peace of mind.

Why Is DCAA Compliance Important?

DCAA compliance is critical — even for small businesses. The DCAA conducts audits and offers advisory services to federal agencies, such as the Department of Defense, to ensure government contractors of all sizes manage contracts and spend money appropriately. The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) is one of their primary guides for performing audits, as it outlines a set of consistent and uniform policies and procedures for the federal acquisition process.

Becoming DCAA compliant can bring benefits such as:

  • Saved resources: When you spend the time and money to ensure your DCAA compliance now, you can save more time and money in the future as you grow.
  • Improved preparedness: Preemptively becoming DCAA compliant can save you the headache of dealing with an audit, since you’ll know everything is in order.
  • Increased opportunities: Large integrators and other teaming partners are more likely to work with your small business if you are DCAA compliant.

Types of DCAA Audits

The DCAA conducts a variety of audits, including:

  • Pre-awarded surveys, such as SF1408
  • Price proposal
  • Forward pricing
  • Incurred cost
  • Business system
  • Floor check
  • Other audits at the request of the contracting officer
