Is that enough acronyms for a title?
New Department of Defense Office of Inspector General (DOD OIG) report suggests Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs) request and review actual receipts for other direct costs (ODCs) such as airline tickets. The assumption is that they are to coordinate with DCAA if they question an expense.
I imagine this arises out of the alleged (cough, cough) DCAA backlog and OIG is desperately trying to find a way to protect tax dollars.
Desperate may be the correct term, as the ladies and gentlemen the OIG suggests to assist in this critical task are neither trained or experienced in cost auditing.
Maybe they should tune in to my webinar next month on M&E? With that I plug our new website.
