ACC-Redstone hosts DCAA Summit
July 6, 2011
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- The Army Contracting Command-Redstone contracting center hosted a government/industry Defense Contract Audit Agency Summit June 21-22 at the John J. Sparkman Center.
Participants included senior leadership from the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command and the DCAA, and major suppliers for aviation, missile and space products and services.
"Contracting and DCAA have the same objective--to be good stewards for the taxpayer," said Cathy Dickens, ACC-Redstone executive director/principal assistant responsible for contracting.
Issues were identified from industry, contracting officers, and auditors for discussion. Government panels with representation from DCAA and ACC provided solutions and answered questions to provide clear guidance to industry.
The guidance is expected to pay dividends in improving the proposal and audit process which allows for better deals for the taxpayer and more timely support to our warfighter.
