Specially designed as a comprehensive overview on the entire landscape for DCAA & DCMA audits and compliance requirements as they stand today, this pre-conference working group offers attendees the opportunity to cover the essentials so that they are fully equipped to engage in the high-level discussions and debate that are the hallmark of the main conference. Whether you are relatively new to the world of DCAA and DCMA audits and compliance, or a seasoned professional merely seeking a refresher prior to the main event, this working group presents a unique opportunity to have everything at your fingertips so that you can get the most out of the main conference. As well as providing this thorough overview, the working group will also allow space to discuss some of the main key topics of the day in a more informal setting, such as, but not necessarily limited to:
  • The DCAA resuming its civilian authority: what are the impacts on contractors?
  • What impact will the latest regulatory changes – such as the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Rules – have on your business, and to what extent will these survive under the Trump Administration?
  • What impact is the DOD’s raising of the threshold for submitting certified costs having on industry?
  • What do the latest changes to the DCAA Contract Audit Manual mean in practice?
  And much more. Do not miss this chance to be thoroughly equipped to enjoy and participate fully in the main conference program!
